RE: Lutetia Lawrence - Payson IL
You're very welcome. Glad I could help. Would you like me to make a page for Ada and add that picture to it?

Lutetia Lawrence - Payson IL
Hi. I just added Lutetia and Ana's stone from Payson. I noticed that the death dates are different - memorial page says 1919 and the stone says 1921.

I took photos of other Lawrence's in the cemetery that I'll upload. But I didn't see one for her husband or son.

RE: Shinn Family
Hi Kim, Daniel Shinn was the patriarch of the Shinn family in Pike County Illinois, he was my 4th great grandfather. Both sides of my family are from Pike and Calhoun Counties. I grew up across the river in Louisiana Missouri. My page provides a detailed history of the Shinn family. Here is information about Daniel that you may find interesting:

History of Pike County, IllinoisChas. C. Chapman & Co.,
Chicago, 1880

page 700-701

. . . Daniel Shinn, is the first of the family that located in Pike county, and is counted as one of the earliest and most respected of Pike county's pioneers. On his arrival here in 1820, he located near the present town of Atlas. He brought into the county at that time the fist wagon that ever came within its boundaries; about 2 years afterwards he bought a farm of 160 acres on the N.W. 1/4 of sec 12 Atlas tp., on which he immediately erected a small log house, into which he moved with his wife and 6 children. He was married in the State of New Jersey to Mary Haskett [sic], who was of Scotch descent, and the 6 children born to them before they came to this county, were all born near Cinncinnati, Ohio; their names were Benjamin, John, Eliza, Mary, Hannah and Phoebe. The first, third and last, are the only ones now living.
The farm above mentioned was wholly in a wild state, in the midst of heavy timber, no improvements of any kind, and consequently he had more to contend with than many in a new country, but he was endowed with that indomitalbe energy and perseverance so necessary to the pioneer, and went bravely to work; his means were limited, and with a large family to support, it was no small merit to obtain success. He was a man of strong religious convictions, generous and affable to all. He was the first to open the house for religious worship, Methodist meetings being held there for 10 years. He was prosperous, and gave his sons between 700 and 800 acres of land; he died in March, 1852, and his wife in Sept., 1849; they had a family of 13 children, 7 of whom were born in this county,---Nancy, Lydia, Henry, William, Daniel, Asa, and an infant, deceased. Of these 7, only Nancy, Lydia and William are living.

Rollo Frank
Hi, sorry I have been slow to get back to this site. I keep forgetting to get back here. Frank was the husband to my great great aunt Lillian Drusilla Glover. I am trying to look into these other wives and children now.

RE: # 130836985
His full name is Edward Stanton Arnold. I have now linked him to his parents. He was born in Spencer Co. Indiana, remained single and lived with his parents until their death. The only relationship I have with him is our address was the same town.
