It was sometimes used as nickname for Indiana, also.

The Illinois Marriage Index has the following listing:
HARPER, JAMES WILIAM LEMANS, INDIA L JOHNSON 12/01/1898
Can anyone comment on whether the surname of India is correct? Lemans is a
rare name in the nation. The 1930 census indicates that she was born about
1880 in Illinois, father born Texas, mother born Illinois.
Normally I would not send links to a book for sale, but the full name index listed on this page might help pinpoint ancestors whereabouts during this time.
They have full names listed.
Note: It is not my book, seller might can be emailed from the page if you have questions.

Hope it helps,
I am not expert on these families but... On Jessie Lollis. First they
spelled the family name several different ways. Usually Loless these days.
Jessie was married to Martha Deaton. Jessie's parents were Benjamin Loless
(1786-1877) and Elizabeth Bundren. Both Benjamin and Elizabeth are buried
Bolton Cemetery, near Stonefort, Williamson County, Illinois. Two of
Jessie's siblings, Archibald Benjamin Loless and Artiemesie Loless, and one
of Jessie's daughters, Armina, figure into my families. You can find much of
this family on LDS Family Search. Look for Elizabeth Bundren or Benjamin
Lawlis. I don't know how accurate that data is in total.
Hello and I am seeking information on the 2 below individuals and believe they may be brothers to my gggrandfather living just across the river in Livingston county KY. We have always known that my set were related to the Southern Illinois set through family stories. Does anyone know the children, spouse, siblings, or parents of the below individuals in Johnson county ILL? Any information on this family is most welcome. Please see below information. Thank you Robin Holt

The 1870 census of Simpson Township, Johnson County shows Eliza Trigg, age 3
born Illinois, in the family of Milton Trigg (age 41 born Tennessee) and Mary
(age 39 born North Carolina). Milton A. Trigg married Maryanne Barnwell, 17
Dec 1850 in Johnson County. Lots of Triggs and Barnwells in that area.
Bowen Reynolds, age 8 born Illinois, is listed as the son of Ivy Reynolds
(age 77 born NC) and Caroline (age 49 born Tennessee) in Burnside Township.
"Hy" Reynolds married Caroline Engle, 20 Nov 1839 in Johnson County.
These township abut, the families may have lived quite close.
Hello List, This is my first submission. I am a descendant of Ivy Reynolds and his second wife, Caroline Engle. My father was Loren Reynolds from Simpson. My interest today is as follows:
On the 1910 census of Simpson, we find a young girl named Hazel Reynolds, age 12, living with her uncle, Charles Trigg and her grandmother, Mary Trigg. I believe Mary Trigg died in 1916, but I can find no other information on these people. I believe Hazel was the daughter of Bowen Reynolds (who died about 1905) and Eliza Trigg, but I can't find any information about Eliza either. Bowen Reynolds was a son of Ivy and Caroline Engle Reynolds. Does anyone know exactly who the above people were?
Also, I recently acquired an old photo from Simpson Springs School, dated 1909. The name Hazel Reynolds is written on back. If anyone can help identify the people in the photo, I will gladly send a scan. Thanks in advance.

Robert Hewitt and Jerusha Powell were married 31 Jul 1850 in Johnson County,
Illinois. The newlyweds are listed in the 1850 census living near where
Parker City will appear later. They are listed adjacent to my
great-granduncle William Finley (brother-in-law of my great-grandmother
Rebecca Powell). I find them again in 1880 census, Dunklin County, Missouri,
with a houseful of children. The children's birthplaces imply that the
Hewitt's lived Illinois until about 1870, then Missouri.
Does anyone have any further data on this family? Thank you.
