Searching for information concerning Nathaniel Hillen. He married Mrs.
Lora Fuller on Oct. 1, 1848 in Perry CO. and married Sarah Ann Benefield
on March 11, 1858 in Jackson CO. Would certainly appreciate some census

Hillens in Franklin CO. and the Davis family in Perry CO. IL (from VA).
Hello - I have just joined the list and am looking for a family by the name

anyone, I would really appreciate hearing from you. Thank you so much - Robin
I have a........ Jonathan Wyman in Clay Co. Ill who married Mary J. Joplin,
Jan. 15, 1850. This was a second marriage for her after death of husband, XX
Joplin. It seems from the census of 1850 that this could be a second marriage
for him too.
Seeking information about the Wyman family. Do not know when they arrived
or how long they were there. Abraham immigrated from Poland. First married
Betty Koplowitz. When she died supposedly Abraham returned to Poland and
married her sister, Harriet. There were at least three children: Eugene
Lester (1924-1973), Dr. Milford, and Dr. Melvin. Eugene attended
Northwestern and Havard before settling in the Los Angeles area where he was
a prominent lawyer and chairman, California democratic party.
If family members are still present in the area, would appreciate contacting

Please check this out re: "save the old cemeteries"
An on-line petition is available at:
While the petition is set to go active on July 4th and run until October
1st, it has already been signed and is working well.
Very soon there will be a petition available to print off and carry with
you to get hard copy signatures. Genealogy Society meetings & parents
of Boy Scouts who work on cemeteries for badges are just a couple of
groups that would be good places to start. We are hoping to have it
available very soon. When the necessary work is completed, that
petition will be available at:
The following message is available from the on-line petition to help
spread the word about the petition. You will receive the cut-and-paste
message in a confirmation letter after you sign the on-line petition.
Remember, don't sign the on-line petition AND the hard copy petition.
The less duplicate signatures, the better our chances of getting a
legitimate petition to the law making bodies.
I have just read and signed the online petition:
"National Cemetery Protection Act"
hosted on the web by PetitionOnline.com, the free online petition
I personally agree with what this petition says, and I think you might
agree, too. If you can spare a moment, please take a look, and consider
