Here’s the information you requested:

From Cemeteries of Brown County, Illinois

Wethers Burials, pp. 390-391


In the southwest quarter of Section 8, Versailles Township, 2 S, 2 W,at the entrance to the Thomas Root homestead are the graves of two Wethers children. They were two of the eight children of Quinton and Sarah T. (Sallee) Wethers and were reportedly victims of scarlet fever.


Quenton Wthers was born in Culpepper County, Virginia, in November, 1804 and when only two years of age accompanied his father to Bourbon County, Kentucky. He grew to manhood there and learned the trade of caroenter. Later he went to Missouri, and there, around 1830, married Sarah Sallee. He settled in Section 9 of Brown County in 1838 on land which he took from the government. He also owned land in Section 8 of the same township.


In 1882, the Wethers family was living in Chautauqua County, Kansas.


Recorded burials are:

Ella A., dau. of Quenton and Sarah Wethers, d. 23 Jul 1856, age 17 yrs, 3 m., 28 days.

Edgar A.,son of Quenton and Sarah Wethers, d. 17 Jul 1856, age 4 yrs, 11 m, 2 days.
