I'm looking for information on Sarah Ann Elliott who married John W.
Craig in 1858. I know she had a brother named Hiram but in census
records they are at different locations. Any help would be appreciated.
whew...methinks i have bit off a BIG mouthfull!!! but..i'm still chewing!!
so far i have had over 200 requests for look-ups...so please be patient with
me..i'm reading as fast as i can!! and i WILL get to all of you!!
...just a note...the index in the book is a SURNAME index only...meaning it
will list as:
Doe...29, 35, 64, 110 etc..listing EVERY page that the name DOE appears...i
then go to that page and search through the family histories until i find it.
the family histories are 500 words +. sometimes it will only say that john
doe m: jane doe, and that is it!
Doe, John....now...IF they had listed it like so...would make it SOOOOOO much
faster for me to find your people!!!! but they didn't.
bear with me...YOUR letter/surname will be coming up soon!!!
ps...for you DOE researchers..there is no listing!!!

Does anyone have CEMETERY BOOKS of PERRY CO and can see if there is a
JOHN M. WOLF
and "LIZZIE" (BULLARD) WOLF listed in it?
Believe they would have died after 1898.Maybe between 1920/1940?? This
is just a "wild guess".
I am searching for the household of JOHN M. WOLF and "LIZZIE"(BULLARD)
They were in CUTLER (Perry Co, Ill.) in 1898.
Does anyone have access to the 1900 Census for Perry Co and can look
this couple up for me?
I need any , and , all information the census may have , (especially where
they were born , and ages)
They were in Williamson Co, Ill in 1877 ,as their daughter BERTIE WOLF
was born there at that time.
for any help!!
Looking for information on the origins of the family of Joseph and Katarina
Michalski who were living in Dubois in 1880. Trying to establish if they are
related to Valentyna MIchalski (alternate spelling Walentyna) who was married
in Dubois in 1887 but was born in Tamaroa, Perry County,1871. Believe Joseph
may have been an uncle or brother. Any information appreciated. hjcs(a)aol.com
