Surnames: BURGESS, HILL, HOLLOWAY, MORLAN

Seeking parents of Thomas Howard MORLAN, b. ca 1833 in OH.  He first shows up in Wayne Co., IL records on the 1860 census.  I am trying to connect him with other MORLANs of Quaker origin who came to Wayne Co., IL in the late 1830s and early 1840s from Columbiana Co., OH.  He m.  ca 1855 to Lucinda Emaline BURGESS HOLLOWAY apparently in Wayne Co., IL.  Lucinda was b. ca 1833 in Wayne Co., TN (not IL) the daughter of Thomas W. and Mary (HILL) BURGESS.  She was first m. ca 1850 in Wayne Co., TN to John HOLLOWAY.  The known children of Thomas Howard and Lucinda Emaline (BURGESS HOLLOWAY) MORLAN were as follows: Mary Caroline MORLAN, Virginia A. MORLAN, James Henley MORLAN and William Henley MORLAN (twins), Charles E. MORLAN, Jesse E. MORLAN, Lidora MORLAN, and Nora MORLAN.  Please contact me if you are researching any of these surnames in Wayne Co., IL.

(Q1)  9 Sep 1996 - Michael L. Hebert + Homepage

Surnames: BLEDSOE, HOBSON, SHOAF

Trying to find parents/info. on Alexander SHOAF, b. ca 1832 in Orange Co., IN.  He m. ca 1852 probably in Orange Co., IN to Deborah BLEDSOE although there is no record of it.  Deborah was b. in Oct 1837 the Orange Co., IN the daughter of Lewis Allen and Mary (HOBSON) BLEDSOE.  Alexander and Deborah were living in Orange Co., IN in 1860 and then there is no sign of them again until 1882 when they show up as parents on a birth record in Gibson Co., IN.  Alexander may have never made it to Wayne Co., IL.  He may be the Alexander SHOAF that shows up in the Gallatin Co. death register who lived in Bear Creek Precinct, Gallatin Co., IL and d. 20 Apr 1888.  Deborah shows up on the 1900 census in Big Mound Twp., Wayne Co., IL living with or near some of her children so Alexander was apparently dead by then.  Some of the known children of Alexander and Deborah (BLEDSOE) SHOAF were as follows: Sarah A. (?) SHOAF, David SHOAF, Margaret Etta SHOAF, Pearl SHOAF, Martin SHOAF, and Noah SHOAF ... there were undoubtedly more.  If you are researching the SHOAFs or BLEDSOEs then please contact me.
