SMITH, WILSON posted by Rick Denton on October 3, 1999

SMITH I know my family presently lives in the Robinson area, but my Mom's family keeps mentioning Flat Rock, Illinois. Is Flat Rock, Illinois in Crawford County? If it isn't what county was it in. I am trying to get some information on my Grandmother Ghloe SMITH WILSON. Wilson is her 3rd married name. My Grandfathers name I believe to have been Allen Smith. They had 12 or 13 children, many of who still live in Illinois.

CHANEY, DARNALL, JACKSON posted by Lisa Weatherford on October 6, 1999

I have a great-great grandmother Fidelia Rachel JACKSON b. 30 September 1871 in OH married to Isaac N. DARNALL b. 1864 in IL. I believe that Fidelia's family lived in Crawford Co, IN. Fidelia's parents are Jesse JACKSON and Elizabeth CHANEY. Fidelia lost a son Jesse in 1912 in Terre Haute, IN in a train accident (age 17) and his body was taken to Crawford Co, Hardinsville, IL for burial. There is a Jesse JACKSON d. 15 July 1915 buried in a Hardinsville cemetery (Civil War vet) and I am wondering if this Jesse is my 3rd great grandfather. Does anyone know this family?

CROW, EVANS, LAMB, VICKERY posted by Gayle on October 11, 1999

Mary EVANS married 20 Nov 1842 in Crawford Co Hiram LAMB. They had two chldren Sarah Elizabbeth born 1843 and Nancy Ellen b 1845. Mary EVANS LAMB died before the 1850 census, so I don't have a birth date or place of birth. Her daughters died before the 1880 census, so I can't locate a birth place for her in that search either. I don't know who Mary's parents or siblings might be, nor do I know if she was a widow or a single lady when she married Hiram LAMB. The only other clue I have is in the 1880 Farmer Twp Rice Co KS census living near James and Martha LAMB CROW are Charles EVANS age 28 IL, parents b IL, Julia 24 b IL parents b NC, Ernest age 3 b IL and Welsley 1 b KS and Wm Evans age 50 b IL parents b NC and Margaret 48 b IL parents NC. Martha LAMB CROW is the daughter of Hiram from his first marriage to Kesander VICKERY. Can anyone help? Thanks.
