We checked through our records to see if we could find any hints to the information you desire. I’m not sure if the County records would reflect the divorce information. However, if there was a court case for it you might be able to find out from the County Clerks office how to go about finding it. The same will apply to marriages after 1900. Pre-1900 marriages are online with the state at: http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/GenealogyMWeb/marrsrch.html.
You may want to go there and check for marriages for Emma Mayfield. There are two from Brown County. One to Daniel Turner and one to John Kenniston. They are probably different Emma’s. There is also an Emma Copeland born in Illinois in the 1900 Arizona Census. I did not have enough information to confirm that this was the Emma you are looking for but based on her approximate age at her first marriage, this Emma could be her. In 1900 Arizona was a Territory, so there was no County name.
Sorry, I couldn’t find more.
Hi Ken....My name is Sandra Wright and I have been trying to find out when my paternal great grandparents, Daniel and Emma (Mayfield) Turner divorced. I have a feeling it was probably in Brown County, Illinois, but I don't have any proof. Also, I think it might possibly have been circa 1900-1915. I recently found out that Emma Turner married ---------Copeland. I wonder if that was in Brown County also? Any help you might give me would be appreciated. I have never been able locate them since the the 1880 census of Ripley Twp, Brown Co., IL.
Thanks so much.
