Dear Bob,

You can write directly to the Brown County Clerk and get a certified copy of the marriage certificate. The cost is $5. Since they cost so much compared to other Counties, I put images of the certificates on the web site of those who are willing to share a copy of their certificates.


Without a death date or at least a death year you cannot get death certificates from the State. And if they didn’t die after 1915, there is no certificate for him. Here are all the ones that are currently listed in the Illinois database:

None are in Brown County. That’s not surprising because the Cemeteries book doesn’t either. These are the Moran’s listed in the Brown County Cemetery Book:

Anna, Arthur L, Beulah, Ida J., John, Laura (Cronin) and William.

Hi Ken and Laurie


Let me introduce myself--I'm Bob Calabro from Williamsburg Va. I have been trying to research the geneaology of my wife's grandfather James W. Moran. Since her parents are not alive and many of the records her father had on family history were lost in a flood things were not looking too good. But we did have a starting point of Versailles and her great grandfather Peter also of Versailles. I could not believe the fantastic wealth of information you have made accessable on the internet. Congrats to both of you and others that may have been involved in this project. From your work I now know that Peter was in the 1860 and 1880 census and the 1880 census listed James W. Moran. Using your marriage certifcate link to the Illinois archives I was also able to find out the Peter married Bridgett Waters in 1866.


I have several questions: Do you know who I can contact in Brown County to obtain a copy of the marriage certificate?? Is there a way to obtain a copy of the 1870 Census (Peter Moran V 273 and 1860 Census Peter Moran MStwp 59) Lastly are there any links to death certificates in order for me to determine the year of death for Peter and his wife Bridgett??
