Well it is spring on the Lawrence County ILWebGen site, with pages
sprouting up all over. Ok, pretty corny, but there has been a lot going
on. We have a wonderful volunteer who is transcribing the 1830 Lawrence
County census for us. We will need a volunteer to do proofreading of
her transcription so if anyone is interested in helping with that,
please contact me. I have had some transcribed records sent to me.
There is a link to those new birth records on the online records page.
There is also a list of early settlers extracted from a historical book.
And we have the partial transcription of the 1920 census on the site
now. I have added a few more links to the Resources pages and have been
continuing to update the site with a new style. I also received data and
pictures from several Lawrence County researchers recently and have all
of that on the site now as well.

Hello! I am researching the Wineman family, who lived
in the Lawrenceville area prior to about 1880, when
they left to move to Gates, TN. They may have had a
sawmill or small farm. Has anyone run across any
information on them? Thanks.

I would like to add another section to the site for tombstone pictures,
so if you have any please send them to me. I also have sections set up
for transcribed wills and probate records and scanned images of
documents. Could sure use some files for these areas! Also, we could
always add more to the collections of Pioneer Bios, Obits and Photos.
Cemetery transcriptions would be good also. Our Surname list is growing
and I will be splitting that into 2 or 3 parts soon. I also am doing a
style update on the site a few pages at a time. Feedback is appreciated!

Can anyone tell me if they know anything with regards to a church that either now exists or did exist at Sand Barrens?
First, I don't even know where Sand Barrens is. Supposedly someone in the Shroyer family fell from the roof while repairing the steeple. In an effort to determine which Shroyer that this supposedly happened to I would like to know more about the church itself. Such as;
a.. Just where is Sand Barrens?
b.. Does a church still exist there?
c.. What denomination?
d.. Year the church was built?
e.. If the church no longer exists, when was it torn down? Destroyed?
f.. Any history that exists at all with regards to this church?
If I can determine the above then I might be able to figure out which Shroyer fell from the roof and was killed. Any help will certainly be appreciated.
