Subject: RE: Brown County (1870 Census Index)


Dear Laraine,


I checked and I think they must have incorrectly indexed this family, because they don't show up on Brown County. On the microfilm it looks like Chesland, so I don't wonder that they got it wrong. Even using our other resources, the given names are difficult.


I'll give you what we found. You might like to check the Illinois State Marriage Index Online for marriages (if you already haven't done this). We found "Bartell" Siebring, Eric Crist Jenson, Richard "D" Neeland.


One last item - there is also a will: Henry D. Neeland 1903 - Box #125.


I hope this material will benefit you. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Hello Laurie,


I cannot find this 1870 entry on my own.  He is listed on your website as Neeland, Henry D. P145
