Thanks Patricia! I'm researching the Jobe family (all). Do you have
anything more on them. This would be Charles Benton Jobe - s/o Abraham Preen

<< Her Parents are Nathaniel Lafayette CHESTER 1844-unk and
Sarah Malinda HOLLAND 1844-1927 >>
Have Nathaniel and Sarah in the Rushing Cemetery down by Ozark in Johnson
Co. That cemetery is online at the Johnson Co. Rootsweb site. Nathaniel's
parents are there also - John B. Chester and Elizabeth C. Frizzell.
Nathaniel was born in Calloway Co., KY, 2-4-1844, married 3-2-1865 in
Williamson Co., IL. Have Sarah's parents as Bryant Holland and Nancy Harrell,
both born in KY and died in AR.
John B. was the son of William Chester(1793-1863), NC - Calloway Co., KY,
m 9-7-1836, Calloway Co., KY, Elizabeth(1819-1871), Calloway,Ky, - Johnson,
IL. Appears the Civil War drove a lot of people out of western KY.
These people are not my direct line but related. Have more if you want to
E me at dtcreel(a)aol.com. PS - Creal Springs founded and named by a distant
relative who started spelling Creel with an 'a' instead of 'e'. My direct
line of Creels never 'saw Illinois'!
Hello to everyone. I'm new to the list and been doing research for six months or so. I'm looking for any info I can find on the families of CRAIG, MORRIS, SUMNER,and CHESTER. I have the following info and am looking for confirmations and other
relatives. I'd be grateful if anyone can provide assistance or linkages with their own lines. All of the ancestors below either start or end up in Johnson Co. I think the lines came originally from Virginia and New York by way of Ohio.
CRAIG: David Oliver Craig b-d unknown m Mary Ellen (Mount)
son Charles Elmer Craig 1888 -unknown m Inez Victoria SUMNER (my mother's grandparents)
I have heard that they are buried in a cemetery in or near
Peter MORRIS 1871-1939 m Leona Elizabeth CHESTER 1871-1966
believe they are buried in Creal Cemetery also.
His parents Daniel Morris and Mary Jane (unknown)
Her Parents are Nathaniel Lafayette CHESTER 1844-unk and
Sarah Malinda HOLLAND 1844-1927
Any info on the Creal Springs and New Burnside Cemeteries would be helpful since I will be traveling there soon.

The Biographical Review of Johnson, Massac, Pope and Hardin Counties,
Biographical Publishing Company, Chicago, 1893
Retyped by Connie McKenzie from pages 617 & 618, July 2000
Surnames in this biography: BEAN, BROGDEN, RYANT, HUS, ONES, MARTIN, ORR
THOMAS BEAN was born in Kentucky, August 4, 1827, and is a son of THOMAS and
ELIZABETH (MARTIN) BEAN, both natives of Tennessee. The father owned a farm
in Kentucky, and followed farming until his death, in 1827. He remained at
home until he was twenty-three years old, having had during his home life
about three months education all told. His mother sold the farm in
Kentucky and removed to Illinois by wagon, crossing the Ohio River at New
Liberty Landing, and purchased land in Johnson County in December, 1850.
She lived there until 1860, when she sold her land and resided with her
children until her death in 1866.
When the war came on, THOMAS BEAN enlisted at Mt. Pisgah, Johnson Co., as a
member of Company C, One Hundred and Twentieth Illinois Infantry, and served
until March 5, 1863, when he was honorably discharged on account of physical
disability. He was in poor health all the time he was in the service.
Returning home he rented his mothers farm and lived there about one year,
and then rented another farm in the same county. In 1880 and 1882, he
purchased land on sections 2 and 35, Cache Township, and now has a good a
farm as there is in the township, upon which the house and other buildings
are also first class. He was married January 22, 1851, to MARTHA J. BRYANT,
who died December 27, 1852. September 24, 1854, he was married the second
time, to NAOMI JONES, who was born in Kentucky on the 20th of July, 1833.
Mr. and Mrs. BEAN have seven children, viz: MARTHA J., THOMAS M., WILLIAM
FINDLEY, MARY ANN, ARNA T., CARLOS C., and SARAH C., who is engaged in
teaching school in her home district. Mr. and Mrs. BEAN are members of the
Methodist Episcopal Church, and he is a member of the Grand Army Post at
Belknap, and of the Republican party.

It's time for another TOLER REUNION. Make plans now to attend. The date and time? Jerry and Ann Toler have again agreed to host the Reunion at their place, Locust Grove Farm, the old Toler homeplace on Route 146 east of Anna, Illinois on Sunday, September 10th, 2000.
The Reunion, as we said, will be Sunday, September 10th, 2000. Registration will begin at 11:00 am, with the meal at 1:00.
Come and enjoy meeting new and old relatives, see the exhibits, enjoy visiting under those magnificent old trees, trade family history and stories. The meat and drinks will be provided by the committee. If possible, please bring a vegetable or/and dessert. We will be having a regular program this year, with drawings and prizes, announcements, family news items. We will also be honoring retiring Committee members. For the kids, we have some things planned for them also this year. For instance, Ann has volunteered to have a fish feeding for the kids and their responsible adult (you'll be feeding the fish, not eating them).
Something new for this year-2000.
We are having Toler T-Shirts made.
Select you size and color,
and send orders to either
Tim Casey, Jan Toler or
Ken Lentz. Price? Order
ahead & have them mailed
for $15.00. Order ahead
and pick them up at the
Reunion for $14.00. This
ought to be lots of fun!
WHAT ABOUT SATURDAY?
Yes, we will be having our annual Where Is It day on Saturday, September 9th at the McGinnis Cemetery, on Route 146 just a couple of miles east of Jerry and Ann's. This is where many of the early generations are buried and seems to be a good place to meet. Come on over around 11:00, meet under the awning, and swap family history. The relaxed atmosphere lends itself to stories of the first Tolers in the area from which we all descend. Bring notebooks, cameras, tape recorders, whatever. If you want to find a cemetery, or where someone lived or is buried, this is the place to be. There seem to always be someone around who knows and is more than happy to show you.
HOW DO I GET THERE?
*Jerry and Ann Toler's Locust Grove Farm is located on Highway 146 between Interstate 57 and Route 37 (or between Anna and Vienna). From the interstate, take the Anna exit and turn east. From Route 37, turn west. There will be signs at Jerry & Ann's.
*For the McGinnis Cemetery, the directions are the same. It is located about a mile east of Jerry and Ann's.
Also bring family momentos, photos, etc. to share. These always seem to be enjoyed by everyone. We also ask that each family bring a history or family group sheet on your family to share with everyone.
Remember also that your family history needs to be brought to the Reunion or sent to Tim Casey as the Toler and Allied Families book will be printed in 2001. This will be all that has been compiled by all Toler's from the past reunions and research of those who have done the Toler families for years. This is the last reunion we will ask for it so please bring your family history as you know it or at least as far as you know it and the present. You can email it to timc(a)midwest.net or send it to Tim Casey POB 430 Dongola IL 62926.
Hello Johnson Co.,
I would love to hear from anyone from the Mohler/Moler family of Johnson Co. Especially anyone with any knowledge of William Pinkney or Pinkney William Mohler or any of his siblings. Pink's parents names are John D and Martha Mohler from Ky.

Any help will do.
Lewis C. FAIN and Rebecca DAVIDSON

Does anyone have info. on this FAIN family?

In the past you who follow this list probably remember I was searching for
Willis G. Moore... well, with the great help of Lynn Callaly and the divorce
record she found for me, we now know the name was George Willis MOORE.
So if anyone knows of a George Willis MOORE born in ILL (presumed) abt
1867-1873.... and lived in Reevesville around 1901, and married Eliza Daisy
COMER in 1901 and had a son Gus Verginis MOORE in Dec 1901...
please email me.
I just stumbled across this web site that has photographs of some of the
county buildings and businesses in Vienna. Also some of the countryside.
The site hasn't been updated since 1997, but things don't change much there
Does any one on this list know Wanda Helm?
I would like to get in touch with her.

OBITUARY: Newspaper name and date unknown. This obituray was found by
CONNIE MCKENZIE in the Bible of her grandmother ORA ANTIS JONES LOWRY on
July, 11, 2000. The date Sept. 20, 1961 was written in ink over the face of
the obituary. I would assume that this was his date of death or the date of
the newspaper article. GERTIE DUNN mentioned here was the 1st cousin of
ROSA BELLE DUNN JONES, mother of ORA ANTIS JONES LOWRY.
"Karnak, Ill. (Special) GEORGE TURNER, age 78, of Cypress, died early today

Anna, CLETUS of Cypress and DOYLE of St. Lorenza, Calif.; one brother,
ROBERT of Cypress and a sister, Mrs. MAUDE MOAK of Cypress. Funeral
arrangements will be announced from the Wilson Funeral Home in Karnak."
GEORGE TURNER'S wife was GERTIE DUNN, daughter of JOHN "JACK" RICHARD DUNN
(b. 7-2-1836) and his 2nd wife MARY ISOBEL WHITE (b. 1863-1864). JOHN DUNN
married MARY WHITE on 11-10-1884 in Johnson Co. IL. ckm
The following obituary was forwarded to me by through email. ckm
"EAST PEORIA -- MILDRED M. BULLOCK, 77, of Flat Woods, formerly of East
Peoria, died at 5:45 a.m. Wednesday, May 13, 1998, at Lourdes Hospital in

MARY DAVIS REID
Posted by Connie McKenzie <cypress50(a)home.com> on Tue, 11 Jul 2000
Surname: DAVIS, REID
I found this memorial in the pages of my grandmother's Bible. I don't know
the people that are mentioned here, but I would assume that they were
somehow a part of my grandmother's life. My grandmother spent most of her
days in Cypress, Johnson Co. IL. This was cut from an old newspaper (unknown
name or date).
Just a thought of sweet remembrance,
Just a memory fond and true,
Just a token of affection,
And a heartache still for you.
More and more each day we miss you,
Though our hearts are not revealed.
Little do they know the sorrow
That is within our hearts concealed.
In loving memory of MARY DAVIS REID
who passed away 10 years ago
September 9, 1947.
Mr. and Mrs. GHANES DAVIS
I notice your name in one of your e-mail messages and thought that I would
make countact to try and find out if you know any thing about a Sarah Gore.
She married a Richard Elkins some time in 1819. Richard died November 5,
1851 in Johnson County and Sarah died December 28, 1857. If you have any
information please let me know. - - - harlan elkins
