What branch of the Price family did Rachel come from. Sterling Price, governor of Missouri, 1850's, the information that I have but am unable to prove yet. Thank You.

I am looking for information on John B. Creviston b. 1840 Indiana, m. Sarah
(Wallace) Martin 9 Jan 1867 Vermilion Co., IL. Sarah b. 1842 Indiana. Sarah
was first married to William Harrison Martin 29 Aug 1860 Vermilion Co., IL,
he d. 1866. She had 2 children by her first marriage, James Luther Martin
and Sarah H. (Martin) Newell. She had 5 children by her second marriage,
Harriet J. (Creviston) Knox, Minnie M. (Creviston) Henders, William
Creviston, George M. Creviston, and Charles S. Creviston. Sometime after
1900, John and Sarah moved to Lawrence Co., IL. I believe most of their
children moved also, although James Luther Martin stayed in Vermilion Co.
Does anyone know when Sarah died? Who were her parents? The 1880 census
shows that her parents were born in Georgia. If anyone knows anything about
this family, please contact me. Thanks for your help.
