Can anyone tell me where to find a MAP that shows the range, township,
etc. of Perry County? Many of the indexes sold are listed this way and
I have no way of translating this to actual areas. For instance, right
now I am trying to find out if the LITTLE VINE CEMETERY is included in
the books done by the Perry County Historical Society. Does anyone
know? If not, does anyone know how to contact the person who would have
a list of those buried there? Have been trying to pull up the Perry
Country cemetery list on Roots-Web this evening, but am running into a

Hello! From sunny So. Calif! (at least for now...)
My name is Laura Miller McIver, I was originally born in DuQuoin, IL--as were
my parents Mitchell Ray Miller and Erin Dale McClure. My research in Perry
County has been mainly on tracing my mother's father's line back: the
MCCLURES. Here's what I have:
I'm looking for verification of the parents of David McClure (he served in
the Civil War), b. 1 Oct 1847 near Cutler, IL, m. 1. Mary Elizabeth Brown 20
May 1868, 2. Jennie Cook 1892, 3. Alice Trout 15 Sept 1919, .d. 5 Apr 1930.
Parents: Maybe SAMUEL McCLURE & MARY ANNE ____?? This is NOT the David G.
McClure also of Perry Co.
Children of David MCCLURE:
1. Minnie Lorin McClure b. 4 Feb 1871
2. William Louis McClure b. 3 Jun 1873
3. James Brown McClure b. 13 Aug 1875
4. Alva Orin McClure b. 1 Mar 1878 (my g-grandfather)
5. Amanda Florence McClure b. 20 Jan 1879
6. Lizzie Annetta McClure b. Jan 1884
7. Lauros(or Loren) Emmett McClure b. 27 Apr 1888
The only information I have on David and his parents is that he was born in
South Carolina and that his parents may have come from Ireland. The census
just isn't enough proof for me that these are his parents and I can't seem to
locate other records easily. If anyone has access to probate records and can
look up, I would be so grateful. SAMUEL MCCLURE (b.12 Dec 1808) of Perry Co
died 11 Jan 1880 and is buried in the Cutler Cemetary. We have other related
McClures in that cemetary, but I don't have any proof that my David is his
son. Also, my Civil War records on David MCCLURE has that he was born at 6
mile Perry Co, near Cutler, IL. Is there anyone who is an expert at
translating/plotting addresses to the tract records in the Federal Census?
I'm thinking that I might at least identify the correct place that he was
born--possibly anyway to the correct family. Thanks to anyone who can help!

Hello from the extreme SW - we moved a year ago from Topeka, KS and midwest
genealogy research centers.
I am looking for the death/burial records of Wm. TROOP/THROOP, Sr. (born
1750) and Jr. (born 1795) - those two and their wives (no names) are listed
in the 1830 census, Jr. and his family in the 1840 census and he and his
married son (Caleb Hardy THROOP) in the 1850 census, but I can't find any
details on the two Williams.
Caleb married an Elizabeth (Betsy) KEELING in Perry Co 30 Sep 1841. Is
she the daughter of the Leonard and Deborah KEELING mentioned in the 1850
census? Thank you for asking for introductions. No other site that I've
encountered does that, I think its nice. Any help would be greatly
appreciated. Sincerely, Sherry

My name is Becky Finney Smith. My husband Jim and I were both born in
Du Quoin and went to school there. We now live near Roanoke Virginia.
I am researching: Finney, Coffel, Branum and Mathis in Perry County.
Quinn and Goalby in Randolph County and Gipson in Jefferson County.
Would like to hear from anyone else researching any of these families.
It is always great to hear from a cousin.
Does anyone do lookups for the Du Quoin City Cemetery? I am looking for
the DOD for my Great Grandmother Martha Jane SUMMERS and my Grandparents
John N. and Nancy Bertha GLENN. I would appreciate any help you may give
me. Thanks very much, Virginia STANTON CUNNINGHAM
