Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
The site seems to be down at the moment. I'll let you know if I receive
more information regarding this.

Hello Fellow List Members,
I don't know about the rest of you, but I had withdrawal symptoms during the
recent Rootsweb maintenance downtime. :-)
It does appear that the lists are back on line, but unfortunately it also
appears that some subscriptions might have been interrupted. No way to know
which ones, so I would suggest that you might want to use the following URL
to find out what lists you are "currently" subscribed to see if you were
inadvertently unsubscribed to any of the lists you subscribed to.
Just put in your email address (the one you used when you subscribed to the
list(s) and check the information you want. You will be sent a list of
those lists to which you are currently subscribed.
There is also a good possibility that messages posted after Friday morning
might also have gone astray, so please feel free to repost any messages that
you might have sent to the list.
Best wishes and let's get back to looking for our elusive ancestors,
Most of you have probably gotten many of these messages (not only the
earlier one from me, but also from the other lists to which you subscribe),
but just in case anyone out there does not yet know, I feel I should post
this one more time.
Starting at 8 AM Pacific Standard Time on Friday, February 23 (11 AM Eastern
Standard Time on 02/23; 16:00 GMT/UT 02/23), RootsWeb will begin a planned
temporary downtime for maintenance of its servers and hosting process. It
will limit this downtime as much as possible, and will return with
increased performance and reliability for future growth. The duration of
the maintenance is expected to be about 24 hours.
During this time, please do NOT send "test" messages to the list.
While the servers are down, it has been suggested that you might take this
time to clean off your computer desk, file that stack of documents gathering
dust on the dining room table, return the books cluttering the floor to
their shelves, backing up your files, or answering a long overdue snail mail
request for information.
See you back online soon!
I just received the following notice from Rootsweb regarding a scheduled
downtime for maintenance. Just wanted to let you know ahead of time.
"Starting at 8 a.m. PST Friday, February 23, RootsWeb will begin a planned
temporary downtime for maintenance of its servers and hosting process. It
will limit this downtime as much as possible, and will return with increased
performance and reliability for future growth."

Surname: GOSSETT, THORNTON, SMITH, HANSARD, McCORD
Phillip GOSSETT b:1832-SC & Elizabeth"Betty" THORNTON b:abt.1842-IL, married
in "JACKSON CO,IL".1860. Phillip's 1st wife unknown_?_; children by 1st
wife: Mary Ann-1855, George W.-1857, Thomas-1860. Phillip was a Union soldier
in the 63rd.Regiment,Co.G. an also there were 3 THORNTON's (Benjamin, John
W, an Wm THORNTON) most likely Elizabeth's kinfolk, maybe her brothers,
these records state they all resided in ROBINSON,ILL ("CRAWFORD CO,IL".)
Phillip inlisted in 1861-"UNION CO,IL". I cannot find Phillip Gossett's
family on the 1860 census anywhere, according to the birth's of their children
they had to be in IL.1855-1878; and by 1880-AK.until their death.
Phillip is thought to be the son of Zelotus GOSSETT/GASSETT b:abt.1798-SC
& wife Margaret_?_ b:1799-SC; I found them on Census records of 1850 "POLK
CO,TN". children listed were: Phillip-1832- SC, Washington-1838-SC, an
Caldonia-1840-SC; also found a John Gossett b:1830-SC (most likely Zelot's
son) working as a farm hand for Isaac SMITH b:1797-VA. but I think this
Isaac lived in 1840 "UNION CO,SC"!
Zelotus/Margaret must have married abt.1825-1830 SC.; Census of 1820 "GREENVILLE
CO,SC" list Zelot GOSSETT head of household abt age 22., with 2 males under
age 10,a female age 10-16,and a female age 45-up (female 16 maybe a 1st.wife
of Zelot and the female over 45 may be her mother and siblings?); There's
also a "WILLIAM GOSSETT" living close by that I think to be his parents,(Wm.GOSSETT,jr?
b: bef.1774,and I think he dies bet.1840-50 Greenvile,SC). Then Zelot moves
to TN. and most likely dies there bef.1860! Caldonia an her children are
in "TOWNS CO,GA."1860 living with her mother Margaret GOSSETT(widow). It
appears that Caldonia never married until 1868 in "HICKMAN CO,TN" too Sam
John W. GOSSETT an wife Narcissus HANSARD and W.GOSSETT an wife Mary E.HANSARD
(they may be Caldonia's brother's?)
GOSSETT's that were in "GREENVILLE,SC" 1810-1840; John, Wm, Tilman, "Zelot",
(Phillip GOSSETT/Elizabeth THORNTON had abt 7 children: Maria-1861-IL;
John E.1868-IL; Wm-1869-IL, Wilbert 1873-IL; Stanley 1880-AK; Albert 1882-AK;
an *James Leonard GOSSETT-b:1883 AK.) A total of 10 CHILDREN; IF THESE
NAMES ARE IN YOUR FAMILY,I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU. thanks

ANCESTRY QUICK TIP from Ancestry.com
I often end up with a roll of film from a trip or holiday that has
just a few frames left. I finish the roll by taking pictures of
heirlooms around the house. After the roll has been developed, I file
these photos in a special album and add information about how I got
the heirloom, which relative owned it, etc.
I place small items on a table in well-spaced rows before
photographing them. Then I identify them by listing them as "Row A,
left to right, Row B . . ."
"Growing old is Mandatory. Growing up is Optional" (unknown)
My great-grandfather, Jesse CROW, was married to:
Laura Bowlby 4/Aug. 1867 Jackson, Co., Illinois...no children.
Lydia Philkins (date unknown) and Jesse CROW lived in DeSoto, Jackson, Co.,
where their son, William Wesley CROW was born. Need more information for
Sarah( maiden name: BISHOP) married Armstrong/Brown then Jesse CROW
6/Nov/1870 in Jackson Co., Illinois. Sarah Bishop and Jesse CROW had two
children: James Augustus "GUS" CROW, born in Williamson Co., Illinois
and Myrtle May CROW, born in Williamson Co. Illinois, circa 1882. Jesse
CROW had several step-children who were born to Sarah BISHOP and Mr.
Augustus CROW was my grandfather who married my grandmother, Ollie Bertha
PENNELL in Pulaski County, Illinois 10/19/1902. James A. CROW died
03/28/1931 and he and Ollie Bertha PENNELL CROW are buried in the Shiloh
Baptist Church Cemetery in Villa Ridge, Pulaski County, Illinois.
If you have any information for these persons; please contact me.
Evelyn CROW/DANIEL Hansson Richmond, KY (Born in Mounds, Pulaski Co., IL.)
My husband's great grandfather, Ebenezer Stewart, died 1899 in Murphysboro.
He was a photographer. According to found information, his son was also a
photographer. I am searching for information about the son Henry L. Stewart
and Henry's 2 known spouses
Henry L. Stewart also went by H. L. Stewart. Except for being named in his
fathers probate record I find nothing about H. L. after the census of 1900.
H. L. married Nettie GROGAN on January 11, 1897 and Clementine AHL on January
Nettie GROGAN daughter of J. N. GROGAN and Annie SLAXTON (marriage license)
according to probate records died in 1900. I believe her parents were Joshua
N. GROGAN and Rebecca Ann SLATON (Ill statewide marriage index) who married
March 18, 1866.
Clementine AHL is the daughter of B. F. AHL and Alice Betholimew and resided
in Carbondale. I believe her parents to be Benjamin AHL and Alice
BARTHOLOMEW who married on March 5, 1873.
I would like to know what happened to Clementine and Henry L. Stewart after
the 1900 Census. Perhaps someone searching AHL or BARTHOLOMEW surnames will
be able to help.
I have been lucky in finding Evelyn Hansson, she use to live in Pulaski
Co, Il., she's helping me some. I could use any help in this area. I'm
searching Vines, Rife, Campbell, & I've found possibilities in
Mississippi Co. Arkansas. Thanks in advance for any help.

O.K. Karima. Here's one. Since I've about given up on finding anything new
on my ggg gf Zachariah Clinton who died in Jackson Co. in 1859, I'll ask
about this one:
Anyone know anything about the ancestry of MICAJAH PHELPS?? He was
supposedly born in Ky in 1804. Married Charlotte Hanks in Hopkins Co. KY in
Oct. 1824. By 1826, they were in Calloway Co. KY and then were in Perry Co.
IL by 1830. From Perry Co., he and Charlotte moved to Jackson Co. along with
Zach and Sarah, and Mary Matilda Hanks Derrington who had married William
I believe Sarah (md. Zach), Charlotte, and Mary Matilda were sisters and daus
of John Hanks and Charity (Gatlin?).
Back to Micajah; I would like to trace him back to the Phelps family who was
at Fort Boonesborough, KY with Daniel Boone. I've heard that he was the son
of John and Mary Phelps, but haven't seen any proof.
In addition to him being married to my ggg aunt Charlotte Hanks, he as also
married to my ggg gm MARGARET LOGAN DAVIS.
Anyone with info on MICAJAH'S ancestry out there??
It has been very quite in "Genealogy Land" lately. I find this to be true
on almost all of the lists I belong to. With the exception of a few "very
busy" lists, most have only a whisper of their former activity. So, I
thought it was time to post a status report on the ILJACKSO list.
At present we have 98 subscribers to ILJACKSO-L and 37 subscribers to
In January 2000, 141 messages were posted compared to the 58 messages posted
last month (January 2001).
Can we assume that we have found all of our Jackson County Illinois
Ancestors? For those of you who have, congratulations!!! For those of you
who still have missing branches on your Jackson County Tree, how about
posting some messages to the list to let us know which of your ancestors are
still missing :-)
Best wishes, and let the search begin!!!

Robert Lafayette York born abt 1817 TN married Nancy Benson lived at Pomona,
Jackson, IL. Robert died 1895 and is buried at Dutch Ridge Cemetery. Looking
for information: where did Robert come from in TN?
Does anyone know someone who can do marriage look-ups
for Jackson County? I am trying to locate certain
information on my g-g-grandmother and her first
My g-g-grandmother is Sarah Jane TURNER, b. 1863. I
know that she married Abraham KING in Union Co. in
1886, however, a 1900 census shows Janie (as she was
called) having a son named James DAVIS (Abraham's
step-son according to the census). The IL State
Marriages internet site shows Janie's last name (in
the marriage to Abraham) as TURNER-DAVIS and also
shows a marriage for Sarah J. TURNER to Josiah DAVIS
in 1881 (Jackson Co.). I am trying to get Janie's info
(such as date of birth, parents, etc.) in her Jackson
Co. marriage to Josiah to confirm that she is the same
person married to Abraham.
I plan to eventually order her marriage certificate,
but would like to know if she is, in fact, my
g-g-grandmother before I do.
Does anyone have the resources to do a look-up for
this kind of information?

I went to school with a boy whose name was Billy Bob Keller. His parents
owned a nice resturant in Cairo. I was born in 1929, so I believe he would
have been about the same age since we were in the same classes. He might
have been from your Keller line...don't know. I don't remember names of
people who owned stores. I do remember that a Weidener or something like
that owned a bakery on a corner in Mounds and my brothers and I walked there
to buy Gooey Butter Coffeecakes for our family...those cakes were so
delicious and full of calories!! I believe the Weidener family was from a
I'll keep in touch.
