I don't know if this will help you or not. However, there is a group of
former residents and descendants of residents who hold an Elkville/DuQuoin
reunion every year. This group is African American. Does this help? If so,
let me know and I'll put you in contact with them. Contact me offline at
My ancestors migrated to Elkville in 1864 and 1867. My grandmother was born
in Elkville in 1882. So, my ancestors have a long history in Elkville.
