Mary HUNT Martin lost her husband Thomas MARTIN 26 May 1868 and he is buried in the Jones cemetery in Flat Rock, on the 13 of April, 1876 she then married one John GRAVVIT (GRAVIT). About Jan.2, 1877 she died and we cannot find anything about John GRAVVIT (GRAVIT), her children were put under the guardianship of Sampson TAYLOR, and two others, where she was buried and what happened to Mr John GRAVIT are a mystery.

HOUSTON, MILLER, PORTER posted by Marian WINTERS on March 7, 1998

I have a marriage certificate for my great grandparents, Thomas Houston PORTER and Mahala MILLER, married March 29, 1870 in Crawford County. Thomas was orphaned at about age 12 and was raised by a Robinson family. I do not know if PORTER was an adopted name, or his birth name. He died in 1884 when his son, my grandfather was three years old. I wonder if there are any newspaper articles concerning his marriage or death that would give the names of his birth parents. He was supposedly born in Shelby County, KY Aug. 15, 1849. Thank you for any help you might be able to offer! I suppose it could be possible (is this a long shot?) that HOUSTON could have been a surname????

BRADBURY, Jessie and Lottie. My g.grandfather Jesse BRADBURY was a pastor at Grand Prairie Christian Church in Palestine, IL sometime after 1907.

FOWLER, PAINTER, WELCH, WELSH posted by Beverly A. Matthews on March 23, 1998

I'm researching the name PAINTER, FOWLER, WELCH or WELSH in Crawford County, Illinois. I have a copy of the John PAINTER-Mary E. FOWLER marriage of March 1859. I'm looking for, maybe, a death of a FOWLER in or around Crawford County, Illinois about mid to late 1858. Or it could be a wife of John PAINTER. I have a daughter of this family, Martha Caroline, born in 1854, with the proven facts. I haven't been able to establish the relationship of John PAINTER with the Crawford County, Jonas PAINTER born (1770-1780) or Benjamin PAINTER born 1801 in Ohio. My information does not connect to their families, so far anyway. Could there be an Obituary on Jonas PAINTER in Crawford County. I have another given name as John PAINTER's Father. Mary E also gave her parents birth place in Ohio not Kentucky as the William FOWLER family group of Crawford County, Illinois.
