Looking for the parents of Lewis Benson, who married Rebecca Eaton in Perry
Co. in 1833. Farmed in four sections in Lost Prairie area until he passed
in 1862. Also seeking relationship of Lewis to Rice and Samuel Benson,
farmers in Perry and Randolph Co. All three purchased land on the same
day at the same place, and were born in Bedford Co. in Tennessee--1806--1810--1813.
I'm looking for suggestions and, or help, with church records.
My ancestors lived in Pinckneyville in the 1850's until their deaths in the
Church records from St Paul's, established in 1874, show the younger
childrens' births. If records aren't in the lutheran church, was there
another church and where would I find the records for the families?

Greetings: I'm a newbie so be nice. My roots to Perry Co. go back to the
late 1820s with the Cunninghams. Several are buried in Hopewell Cemetery. I
have some information on subsequent Cunningham marriages and am interested
in making contact with others of similar interests.
Got this from another list I'm on. Sorry if this has
already sent. Thought the word would spread.
Subject: [PAERIE] Genealogy Spam Update
Date: Fri, 09 Mar 2001 07:28:46 -0800
It looks like the fictitious Family Discovery genealogy service has
moved to Prodigy now. I contacted Prodigy this morning and they
have asked that anyone who receives solicitation email from
familydiscovery.com to take the following steps immediately:
1) Forward the entire Family Discovery message to:
2) Include the following information (most of which was provided by
Rita from the Oconto County, WI list):
Please note that the attached message is now being sent through your
ISP service. They have been reported to various State Attorney General's
Office on computer fraud, but it is hard to catch up with them. Originally the
"company" linked to free information sites and placed the pages in "frames"
so that it looked like it was their own work. Customers paid for that
The scam, now, is paying for the free information links and then they "move"
frequently and leave their paid-up customers without services.
3) Post these same instructions on any other lists today so that Prodigy has
a better chance of finding the spammers.
