I believe I have found my great great grandpas sister. We have been
looking for her for years.
Her name in the census was Ladicia EAGLE. We have assumed she married Levi
HUGHES in Gallia Co, OH.
A Mary L. HUGHES was the informant on my g-g-grandpas brothers death
certificate in Perry Co, IL.
I found Levi HUGHES (VA-born 1838), Mary HUGHES (OH-born 1844) and Ellen
HUGHES (OH-born 1861) on page 112B of the 1880 Perry Co, IL census.
I need to know more about this family.
Were there more children?
Did Ellen ever marry?
take care, Debbie
Mary L. HUGHES was the informant on the death certificate of William Henry
L. EAGLE in 1916. He was buried on a county farm.
I think Mary was William's sister. She may have married Levi HUGHES in
Gallia Co, OH. I have no information on her after the marriage.
If anyone has any information on the HUGHES families of Perry County,
please e-mail me.
Hi, Is Eric Newsom subscribed to the list? His name appears in the surname list as a researcher of the surnames REAVES & REEVES, but when I sent him a message it was returned as undeliverable. I would like to find out more about his REEVES/REAVES family in Perry County, IL.
Barbara Reeves Whittaker
Am looking for Charles E. Dunn married to Matilda Ellen Campbell in Perry
Any help at all will be greatly appreciated.
Does anyone have any knowledge of these names?

To whom it may concern:
How do I get a copy (uncertified) from IL?
I went to the IRAD page but, wasn't sure who to send the request to.
I need one for William Henry L. EAGLE died in Perry Co, IL 1-15, 1916.
I am related to Kyle Onstott through his grandmother, Ann Wells, who was a
sister to my ggg-grandmother, Jane Wells.
According to the information I have, Ann Wells married Elihu Onstott on 30
Jan 1840 in Perry Co., IL. Ann was born 15 Feb 1822 in Illinois. Elihu was
born 21 Mar 1816 in Indiana. They had several children.
One of them was Donald Morrison Onstott, who was born 11 Mar 1850 in Perry
Co., IL. He married Barbara Pyle, (who was born about 1847), on 5 Apr 1877
in Madison Co., IL . As you found previously, Barbara was first married to
Andrew Pyle on 16 Mar 1864 in Perry Co., IL.
Donald and Barbara were the parents of Kyle Onstott.
I hope this information helps, and have more on Elihu Onstott if you're
(researching Gill, Taylor, Wells & related families in Perry Co.)
Thanks Peg and Chris for you quick response.
I see that the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index shows a Don Onstott who
married a Mrs. Barbara Pyle in Madison County on April 5, 1877. Previously,
a Barbara Pyle had married an Andrew Pyle of Madison County on March 16,
1864 in Perry County.
Does anyone have any more on these families. I noticed that on Nov. 2, 1899
a Dan Onstott married a Sophonra Anderson in Gallatin County, and earlier
that year a Frank M. Onstott married a Florence/Flora Smith in neighboring
Saline County on Feb. 22, 1899.
The earliest Onstott I've found in Perry County tonight is an Elihu Onstott
married an Ann Wells in Perry County on Jan. 30, 1840.
Again, thanks for the help.
I just signed up for the list. Does anyone know anything about the Onstott family who lived in Perry County in the late 19th Century (and possibly 20th as well). I'm looking for confirmation that Kyle Onstott, born in 1887, was actually born in Perry County, and better yet, actually grew up in DuQuoin.
I'm not related to Onstott, but instead I'm researching the Old Slave House near Equality, Illinois. In the mid 1950s, Onstott's book, Mandingo, became a best seller. It's depiction of plantation times went far beyond the tame Gone With The Wind version. Onstott and fellow author Lance Horner ended up writing a series of these racy plantation-themed novels known as the Falconhurst series. Hollywood later made a rather bad movie based on the book in the 1970s. It had the same title.
There are similarities between some of the stories at the Old Slave House and the book Mandingo. I'm wondering where Onstott learned about slavery and whether or not he may have picked up any stories from the region.
If anyone has a transcription of the 1900 census of Perry County and could do a lookup I would be very grateful.
I'll appreciate any help I can get.
Anyone know about the Yancey family of the Hanover CO. VA (and
surrounding counties)?? They moved to Franklin and Perry Counties,
Illinois by 1850. I think that they had Davis links in VA (Washington
CO. VA, etc.) and NC and in IL (plus Sumner CO. TN).
Email me privately.
