Dear Kathleen,

Here’s the information as it appears in the Cemeteries of Brown County, Illinois:

Mt Sterling City Cemetery, p 223

Elizabeth Wison, wife of Stout Kendrick (1840-1926) [The surname was misspelled in the entry but spelled Wilson in the relationships’ section.p.257]


Eliza J. Lusk, wife of James M. Kendrick (1830-1900)


P 240

Elizabeth, wife of G. E. Wilson, d. 17 Feb 1864, age 33 yrs.


No other information is available on these persons. Hopefully something will match for you that will possibly connect. Neither Elizabeth appears to be the one you are looking for. However, Eliza may be the one. She has two children buried there too, Benny and Mattie.

Hi Ken & Laurie,


re:  Elizabeth Wilson page 223 & 240. 


I'm not sure if you will be able to help me or not but I am trying to see if one of the Eliza/Elizabeth Wilson's listed on the Brown County Index is the sister of my ggg grandfather.


To be brief, my known Brown/Schuyler County ancestors were the Lusk, Brooks, Atkinson, Bagby and Kendrick families.     


My ggg grandparents were Levi Lusk and Sarah Brooks.  Levi's sister was Eliza Lusk/Burrows/Wilson.  Levi & Sarah's children married into the Atkinson, Bagby and Kendrick families.


The only information I have on Eliza is that she was living in Rushville in 1860 with her brother.  At that time she was 52 years old and listed as Eliza Burrows.  By 1870 she was  with Levi in Mt. Sterling, but by then she was listed as Eliza Wilson, age 62.  On the 1880 census, Eliza Wilson, 72, was then living with my gg grandfather, James Lusk and his family in Rushville.


I believe Eliza would have wanted to be buried near her brother and his family in Brown County.  Can you possibly help me out?


Thank you,

Kathleen Myers, Vancouver, WA.
