RE: James McReynolds
I believe you sent a request for the headstone photo of James M. McReynolds (in Marrowbone Cemetery, Bethany, Moultrie County, IL). I did find the headstone for James V. McReynolds, but not James M. McReynolds.

I am going to try to get out to the cemetery tomorrow (or Sunday) to verify, but I believe the findagrave memorial may have been created from the transcription book published in 1972 by the Decatur Genealogical Society (and the update in 1998 was copied by the original publication since there were only a couple new burials in the old section). I am in the process of going through the information on the record cards from the Cemetery office -- and the entry for James M. McReynolds in the transcription book fits the information for "James M. Smith" on our cards (same for Clara McReynolds should be Clara Smith). SO, Long story short, I will go out to the cemetery to verify if this specific location is a James & Clara SMITH or James & Clara McREYNOLDS. Also, the photo for James V. McReynolds has been uploaded to the correct memorial. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me directly at

Records Assistant, Marrowbone Twp. Cemetery

RE: McReynolds-Wear Family
I did find a Weir/Wear connection to the Fair family. Sarah's nephew, Ranking Young Wear, son of David Milton Wear was married to Serena Frances Fair daughter of John and Louisa Sharp Fair. I found this in a book on the Weir family, it's called "Weir/Wear Families, From Here & There to the White House," Compiled by Olga Jones Edwards and JoAnn Wear Spore. I'll keep looking.

RE: McReynolds-Wear Family
I am a descendant of the McReynolds and Weir (like contraction "we're" not "ware") families but have not found any that had indentured servants in my direct line. If you tell me your ancestors name, I'll see what I can find.

RE: Mc
Hi Connie, my grandfather was Robert A, his father Robert G with his father Robert Joseph my 2nd Great Grandfather and Sarah Mary Elizabeth Weir was my 2nd Great Grandmother. I don't remember all the history so will have to do some checking. My Dad started the family history and my mother is the McReynolds. My sister and I took over after our Dad passed away. Would love trading information. My email address is

RE: Sarah Wear McReynolds
Hi Connie, I'm not near my Computer right now to look up the information. I've started a Wear page on Facebook. I'm not much of a facebook person but found it a better way to get in touch with family members. If you'll look up this page "Our Wear Family" or Cindy Munson there are a lot of Wears on there that may have more info. then me. Some are Direct descendants to those Wears.

Connie, my sincere thanks for making the effort & taking the picture of my great-grandfather's grave stone. His daughter, Angelika Theresa Louise Bornhauser Kyle (my paternal grandmother) was estranged from her birth family. Therefore, we have very little info/connection to them. Thank you for helping us link to our roots.

RE: Martha Summers McGuire
No it was just rock. I thought it was odd that there weren't little single names on the spaces. Buried in the McGuire Plot is Martha, husband Edward, Son Edward III, Nellie and Lela.

Are you related?
I do have a fascinating, family story written about the Mcquires in the local history book.

Connie: I added a photo of Mary's stone although someone else had put one up. You can decide which one you would rather use.

John McReynolds
John is actually buried in Old Union Cemetery, Lincoln, IL. This may need to be changed on the Memorial.

Also, next to John is Mary A McReynolds 1841-1902, if you are interested let me know.

Franklin Chatham
Pvt. Franklin Chatham isn't my memorial so can't help you with that information. RE: William - I have his birth place as TN in 1817; married June 11, 1838 to Delana Decrus who was born in KY in 1824. William also married Mary E. Hunt - marriage & birth date unknown. Does this the same information you have on William? Good luck with your search and have a great day!

Added by Connie on Jun 05, 2013 8:09 AM

RE: William Chatham
Unfortunately, I've only been able to trace back to William Chatham (born 1817). Sorry I can't help but good luck with your search - please keep me in mind if you find out they are connected and I'll do the same. Thanks!

RE: Thomas W. Ginger
I will transfer memorial for Thomas to you; should you find burial information on his mother you will be able to add.

No, I am not related to Thomas Ginger. My only interest in him is in his daughter Gertrude who was married to a Lowande.

Good luck in your research.
