Kessler, lived in South Ottawa; Richard,* died one year ago; Enos, married Miss Chew; Calvin, married Mary Gorbit, lived at Tiskilwa; Jeremiah, married Rachel Sprague, second wife, Rosa Densmore; Mary Ann,* married Horace Sprague, and died soon after."

Biography of Enos Pembroke (sic):

"Mr. Pembroke (Elihu-3, Enos-2, John-1) was born in Ontario county, NY, April 27th, 1802...His father, Enos Pembrook was born in NY, and moved to the western part of that state, and settled there when it was almost a complete wilderness; he married Lucinda Warner and the third child of this marriage was Elihu Pembroke. He was raised in western NY and attended school mostly in Genesee County.

"His mother died [before January 25, 1818] and his father married again [Sophia Rice], and in 1818 the family emigrated to KY. They lived two years within three miles of Louisville, and in February 1820, came to Madison county, IL. His father bought ten acres of land where the main town of Alton is now built, where they lived three or four years, but found the location so sickly that they were compelled to remove elsewhere. At that day the Mississippi river opposite Alton was covered with a green scum like that which may now be seen on the surface of stagnant ponds and fever and ague prevailed to such an extent along the river banks that the settlers were obliged to remove. About 1825 or 1826, his father moved with the younger children to the vicinity of Ottawa, in LaSalle county...

"When he came to IL, in 1820, there was not a house in Jersey or Macoupin counties, and IL had been admitted as a state only two years. It was never expected at that time that the prairies would ever improve. He says that when his father came to IL an old hewed log-house and some cabins were the only signs of civilization which marked the site of the present city of Alton."
*Also from this biography: "John-1 Pembroke (sic) was an Englishman who emigrated to this country and settled near Schenectady, NY. He was a sea captain and was taken sick and died while making preparations for a voyage."
