I find this family listed as follows on the 1860 Census for Brown co.:
Jacob Burkey, 50 M Germany
Mrs. M. Burkey 38 F Germany
John Burkey 17 M Ohio
Catherine Burkey 16 F Ohio
Mary Burkey 15 F Ohio
Barbara Burkey 14 F Ohio
Eliza Burkey 7 F Illinois
George Burkey 10 M Ohio
Jacob Burkey 5 M Illinois
William Burkey 3 M Illinois
Margaret Burkey 1 M Illinois

On the 1850 Census for Putnam co., I find only Jacob, Magdalena, Mary, Eliza, and John Burkey listed, with a discrepancy in ages compared to the 1860 Census.

In 1866, John Burkey married a Josephine Crawford, my great-grandparents. Their first child seems to have been born in Missouri and they eventually ended up in Oklahoma. I would like to find anything about the remainder of the family. So far I haven’t turned up anything else on the parents or siblings.

George Washington Kellogg was born on 1 Aug 1864 in Ill (possibly Brown county). We believe he was an orphan at a young age. Later he married Sarah Ellen Shupert and they had the following children: Guy, Ernest, George, Paul, Nina, and Pearl.

We are trying to find the names of his parents. We do not have a birth record. Any information is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Kelly Townsend Fri, 29 May 1998 19:03:51
I am looking for information on George Townsend b. abt 1781 married to Mary C., born about 1786. They both died in Brown Co., IL. I think they are the parents of George W. Townsend b. abt Dec 1822 and died July 26, 1849 in Brown Co. I had ruled them out because the 1840 census said they had a son 20-30 yrs old not 15-20. Today I found George Townsend in the 1830 census in Schulyer Co and he had one son 5-10 yrs old. The ages for him and his wife match the 1830 and 1840 census and cemetery records. Any help would be appreciated. I have already checked the wills and probates for Brown Co. with no luck.
