I am looking for information on Peter Ferdinand (Fred ?) DE COUNTER, born in France. I have read the bios in the Brown & Schuyler books, but I am looking for more specific information. I want to know when he died and where he is buried, when his first wife Nancy (SCONTS or SCOUNTS) died and where she is buried. He remarried in Schuyler Co. in 1839 to a Mary MANSER. When did she die and where is she buried? How many children did he have? I can only find information on Samuel who lived in Schuyler Co. On the 1850 census P.F. is listed next door to Samuel in Brown Co. with a Jonathan DeCounter, age 24, born in MO (where P.F. and Nancy lived before moving to IL). What happened to Jonathan? Also, I found an 1844 marriage license for a Maria DeCounter m. Jonas? O-bert. On the 1860 census for Samuel in Schuyler Co., there is a John Ulbert, m, age 3, born IL living with Samuel and his family. What happened to Maria & Jonas? I note in the 1840 census index that Fred DeCounter is listed on page 171. If anyone has access to this census, I'd like to have the information listed for him. Does anyone know if the old DeCounter homestead still stands? P.F. bought land from a Willis O'NEAL, SE 1/4 section 33, 1 N 2 W (Ripley Twp.) in what was Schuyler but is now Brown county. I have much info on Samuel's descendents that I'm willing to share. I'd appreciate any information anyone has to offer on this family.

I am descended from the Dewitt, Freeman, and Tolle families of Brown County, IL. Specifically, on the Freeman side I am descended from Howard W Freeman who married Sarah Flemming ~1848 in Brown County. Howard W Freeman was born ~1830 in Kentucky and died during the civil war March 14, 1863 in Nashville, TN. I believe he is buried in the Coopertown Cemetary (listed as H.W. Freeman). Sarah Flemming was born 1830 in Indiana, and lived in Brown County until~1890 before moving to Washington state with her son George Washington Freeman and daughter-in law Elizabeth Dewitt Freeman.

Elizabeth Dewitt (born 1866, Brown County) was the daughter of Sylvester Dewitt and Jemima Tolle and the granddaughter of Benjamin Franklin Dewitt (1810 - 1872) and Elizabeth Taylor and of Charles Wesley Tolle and Charlotte Temple Taylor. Once again, I believe her parents and grandparents are all buried in the Cooperstown cemetary based on the index. I am especially interested in finding any information regarding Howard W. Freeman and of Benjamin F. Dewitt. However, any information that you can me on any of these individuals would be extremely helpful and greatly appreciated.
