I have information on numerous families that settled in the Southwest
corner of Perry County in the 1800s. My primary interest is:
Family of William Russell (1785-1848) and Mary Harris (1791-c1857) who
moved from Carteret County, NC to Jackson County then Perry County, IL.
Their children were: Anna, John, Mary, Leonard, William D. Sr., and
Family of Thomas J. Guymon. (1817-1878) and Frances H. Killgrove
(1815-1858) who moved from Henry County, TN to Perry and Randolph
County, IL. Their children were: Mary, John, Melissa, James, and
Family of Joshua Bradley (c1769-1839) and his wife Nancy Gardner who
moved to Jackson County near Campbell Hill around 1817. Their son Isaac
Ambrose Bradley (1806-1879) settled near present day Denmark in Perry
County and their daughter Elizabeth Bradley (1810-c1885) married Richard
G. Davis and also settled in Perry County.
