I am Looking for Henry Watkin Huetson and Jeannete (Janet or Jenet). Henry was born in Lincolnshire, England. Jeannete was born in Springfield IL or maybe even in Scotland. They both had lived in Evanston, IL and they both died in Chicago, IL. They had 10 Children. There could be more Huetson living in Chicago. I am looking for the Grandparents, parents, brothers, and sisters of Henry Watkin Huetson and Jeannete Moffat.

Chenoweth-Roat(Roote): Looking to straighten out a last name spelling on marriage of Mary Elizabeth Chenoweth to a Thomas Jefferson Roote (tho the daughters spelled it Roat) M: 8 Nov 1857 in Brown Cty. My great grandmother was born in 1862 or 1864 in Versailles, Brown Cty. There was also a sister Lena. Chenoweth and Roat were drowned somehow, somewhere, unknown date in a flood, and 3 daughters were taken in by other families. Any info on this Roote(Roat) is most appreciated. Great grandmother’s name was Rosaettia Roat. Thanks, Rick.

I am interested in the Bell, Coffman, Clark, Carter families of this county. Of special interest is Thomas Jason Clark, who married Josephine Viola Fultz. Also of interest is Mary Jane Bell, daughter of John Bell who married Moses Coffman and moved to Marion Co., Palmyra, Mo. and lived there in the 1860’s and operated a grocery store. Mary Jane Bell Coffman died in Quincy IL in 1920 and is buried in the Bell Cemetery in Missouri Twp, Brown Co. Mary Jane and Moses Coffman‘s daughter Mary Elisabeth Coffman married John Mann Fultz of Quincy IL. and lived there until her death. Any info on these families would be appreciated. Jeri Helms Fultz

I’m looking for any “missing links” to the Bordenkircher family tree. I’ve got nearly everything, but would find a lot of “unknown” Bordenkirchers if I’d search in Ohio. I’m always running across new Bordenkirchers, especially online. There are 175 listings in Switchboard.

Davis, Elijah born about 1817 and married an Elizabeth Shoopman born about 1819 and married August 23, 1837 probably in Cass Co., Ill. They had Edward, William, Hannah, James P., Sarah E., & Francis Marion,my great grandfather. Last found Elijah and Elizabeth in the 1860 Cass Co. census. Her parents are buried at Clark Cem. in Cass Co. and a lot of his relatives, but after 1860 just can’t seem to place them anywhere. I know there are Shoopmans in Brown Co., and wonder if any of them are connected to Elizabeth in anyway, and would share their thoughts with me. Thank you, C. Orwig.
