I am searching for the parents of Joseph Asberry who was born in Kentucky. He and two of
his sons: Isaiah and Abram, (also born in KY) came to Jackson County about 1844 to 1850.
Evidently Joseph's Kentucky wife had died, because he married in Southern Illinois in 1850
and was in the Jackson County census of 1850 when he was 48 yrs. old. They had with them
a female child named Josephine who was 4 yrs. old.
Neither Josephine or Mary were named in Joseph's probate after his death in 1866.
Can you help me find out the names of Joseph's parents. I have tried every avenue.
I've received great news this morning . . . the List archives are once more
available. This is especially helpful for those of you who are new to the

I have a LELA WILMA CLARK b Jan 28, 1899 Franklin County, IL? Died March

the dau of ELISHA GEORGE MARTIN CLARK or ELISHA S. CLARK and EMMA DAVIS.
I was looking in Franklin County for them with no luck. It was suggested
that I look in Jackson County.
Will be happy to share.

Surname: KEMNER, BORGERS
Jackson County. Looking for the Frank Kemner(1832-1914) famly. Came from
Westphalia Germany to New York, married a
Mary Anna Borgers, had children, Elizabeth, Mary, Josephine and John. At
some time they moved to Murphsboro,IL.
I just wanted to let anyone who may not already be aware of it, about the
availability of census searches through the Illinois State Archives. If you
have the name (preferably the head of household) and the county in which you
know or believe him/her to have lived, you can request a search (actually
two searches at a time) of the census archives.
If the researchers at the Archives can find a record for the family, they
will mail you a photocopy of the actual page on which the entry is found. It
will include information on all of the individuals who were living in the
household at the time the census(s) was taken.
Uncertified photocopies of requested records are available at NO charge
(there is some confusion among the genealogy community regarding this, but I
can assure you that at this time there is no charge) - also don't bother to
send a SASE, they will just return it to you).
You can request copies of documents by mail, by fax, by telephone, or by
You can write/phone/fax your request to the following:
Illinois State Archives
Margaret Cross Norton Building
Springfield, IL 62756
Telephone: (217) 782-3556
Fax: (217) 524-3930
OR, to make it really easy, you can visit the following URL and complete the
request form you will find there.
Some things to keep in mind when making requests are listed below.
Request no more than two specific names or items per mailing.
For name searches try to provide (if you have it, but if you don't have all
of it don't let that stop you from making your request):
1) the individual's complete name, age, and birthplace,
2) county and township names, and
3) the year of the census(s) to be searched.
Wait for a response to one request before submitting another one.
The following is the main web page for the Archives, you might want to check
it out to see what else is available, and there are a lot of resources one
can use for searching in Illinois:
Hope this helps,

Looking for information on my grandfather, Reuben Walter BUCKLES (BUCKELS)
b. 9/12/1874 d. 2/18/41 (DeSoto, IL). He was married to Rosa O. V. MURRY
(MURRAY), b 1/15/1877, d. 8/10/1916. They had Lawrence, Clarence, Helen,
Emma, Milford and Virgil Buckles, all born in DeSoto, Jackson, IL. Virgil is
my father and was the only one to spell his name BUCKELS.
I know nothing about Reuben's family except his father's name, John Buckles,
is listed on his death certificate, place and date of birth unknown. Is
mother is listed as unknown. According to the 1910 census, Reuben's parents
were born in Kentucky and Illinois. Reuben remarried an Elizabeth YEARING,
after Rosa died in 1916. There is also an indication that Reuben had a
brother named William, who, according to family lore, took off for
California, date and exact destination in the Golden State unknown. And,
one of the family remembers a brother John Buckles who lived in De Soto as

I have a mystery:
Lewis LINCOLN was born 16 July 1814 in Lanesboro, Berkshire Co., MA and died
October 1905 in Carbondale, Jackson Co., Illinois.
His first wife was Ruth Phipps BANNISTER, whom he married 10 April 1840 in
Lanesborough, Berkshire County.
I don't know if Ruth died or if they were divorced, but circa 1865 Lewis
removed from Vermont to Southern Illinois.
Lewis LINCOLN married Mrs. Catherine Turner SMITH on 04 December 1866 in
Cairo, Alexander Co., IL.
Catherine Turner SMITH was born Abt. 1835 in Canada.
The only record I have of Lewis's marriage and life with Catherine, is a
copy of the wedding certificate and the following information from the 1870
census for Alexander Co. IL
1870 Census for Cairo, Alexander Co., IL
Census taken 16 June 1870
(info taken from photocopy of original page)
LINCOLN, Lewis; 55; m; w; traveling agent; real estate $4,000;
estate $1,000; born in MA
LINCOLN, Catherine; 35; f; w; born in Canada
SMITH, Arthur; 18; m; w; watchman; born in Canada
SMITH, James R.; 16; m; w; born in Canada
SMITH, Egbert A.; 12; m; w; born in Canada
SMITH, Carrie F.; 6; f; w; born in IL
LINCOLN; Lewis; 1; m; born in IL
LINCOLN; Bishop; 1; m; born in IL
DRAPER, ____; 65; f; born in Kentucky
Something happened to the marriage of Lewis & Catherine. Again no idea
whether she died or if they were divorced.
Lewis LINCOLN married, as his third wife, Anna R. LOVELACE. They were
married 29 October 1875 in a wedding which took place at the residence of
the Bride's mother in Metropolis, Massac County, IL. Anna was the daughter
of George(JOHN?) LOVELACE and MARY UNKNOWN. Anna was born 28 March 1842 in
Maumee City, Ohio, and died 10 June 1927 in Carbondale, IL (Jackson County).
Does anyone have any information on any of the above?
Here is hoping :-)
