MAIN, PARKER, VAN WINKLE posted by Nancy Main Cheatham on April 18, 1998

Have just recently learned that my ggg grandparents came to Texas from Crawford County, Illinois. Micham MAIN b. 1794 to 1800, married Elizabeth VAN_WINKLE on August 20, 1820 in Crawford County. They had 5 children in Illinois... William, Elisha Harmon, Leonard and Riley. 1 son born in the Republic of Texas: Thomas Franklin. The notes which I have referenced indicate that Elizabeth's family was among the early settlers at Fort Motte. The Mains left Crawford Co. for Texas in the 1830's. Did they maintain their ties to Illinois? Is there any existing correspondence? Who are Micham's parents? The spelling of his name varies...Micham, Micam, Meachum, Mitchum. Were there Illinois marriage licenses in 1820? Mains were Methodists but may have traveled to Palestine, Texas with the PARKER family (also of Crawford Co.) who were Primitive Baptists of Pilgrim Predestination Church. Thanks for any leads. Will be happy to share info of Main's life in Texas.
