Am trying to locate the parents of Elizabeth HALL, b. 1818/19 in Big Mound Twp., Wayne Co., IL, m. (1) John CLEVENGER, m. (2) Levi CROSS.  See her obituary from Sep 22, 1904 on the Miscellaneous page.

Periodically in reading old files and newspapers, I see info. about relationships.  I keep wishing that I could find just one relative to my William Andrew CLEVENGER, so I could verify my family tree, but so far, no luck.  However, I constantly see little pieces that might be helpful to others in the same predicament.  Please let me know if you indeed find your missing piece.
1. Thomas TAYLOR, of Fairfield, has a brother, Pierce TAYLOR, of CO.
2. John TAYLOR, b. 1836 in OH, d. Jul 24, 1894 near Johnsonville at the age of 58, leaving a widow and 2 children.

(Q116)  6 Oct 1997 - Danene Vincent

Surnames: BROWN, MELTON

Searching for any info. on the MELTON family of Wayne Co., IL.  The first ancestor I know of was John MELTON who m. Susannah BROWN probably in Caswell Co., NC.  They were in Wayne Co. in 1826.  I do find the surname MELTON in 1830-60 censuses, but have no idea of their children.  A Leonard MELTON in the 1830 census is likely a son since Susannah's father was Leonard BROWN.  Anyone searching MELTONs, please e-mail me!
