Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Palestine, Crawford County, Illinois. As a descendant of the Kitchell Family, founding pioneer family, I have tried to compile the connections of relatives within that family and the web of related persons in Palestine. So many of the families intermarried. I no longer live there so most of my information is on connections of families from 1815 to 1960s.
My other family interests are the Cline-Warner families who were the first white families in Oklahoma from my mother's ancestors and the Taylor-Wells-Holmes families in Ohio from my father's ancestors.
Any pictures that I post may be freely copied; they are there to be shared. It is nice to be cited as the contributor, but I don't get all hung up on needing credit. But I do feel that in genealogy work, it is best to keep track of your sources for information and pictures as it helps authenticate the material.

Thx for the info. Changes made...hopefully correctly. My info came from the death certificate, and things are sometimes not entirely accurate there.

RE: James Harvey Wilson
The lady who found it for me said she actually got it from microfilm at the county historical society.

James Harvey Wilson
Mary, we corresponded some time back, all our messages are still on your Find A Grave profile. I've worked on a DAR app for a Wilson descendant for some time. I wanted you to know that a DAR member found a Will for James H. Wilson in Crawford County that was written March 27, 1857, 3 days before his death. It is in Will Book 2, pages 67-69, Crawford County. It named all his children including James C. Wilson, so it ties up the application for me. Thanks you so much for your help and information on this family.

RE: James Floyd Hardesty #126775525
I transferred James to you. In his bio I made the corrections you suggested but added Conflict when referring to his service in Korea. That is because the US never declared war on North Korea but was the lead nation in a United Nations force to help South Korea since China, with assistance from Russia, was helping North Korea.

Thank you for point out my typing errors, I try to double check what I write, I have arthritis in my right hand, but this must have gotten away from me.

Leslie Lee Matthews
Thanks for pointing out the typo in Leslie Lee Matthews age. Do you know the date of his marriage to Eliza Alice Smith? If we could add the date it would help assure her spouses are in order. Her 2nd husband Oscar Ford was related through 3 of his 4 grandparents.

Mary, It was wonderful to see the marker for my great, great, great Grand Father, John Templeton (born 1799) amongst your pictures in the Palestine cemetery as well as my great grand father and mother, David and Gay Miller Templeton. Since my father's passing this past August (David Edward Templeton), it has become even more important and dear to my heart to know the lineage of my family. Thank you for all your research. It is GREATLY appreciated.~David J. Templeton, Seahurst, WA.
