|Bio and Links|
We are just moving to Hillsborough County, FL and are not too familiar with the area but will be glad to attempt to get any photos we can. My husband and I like to travel and have a digital camera so we are able to find cemeteries and take photos and try to find information for genealogists. If we have to travel, a small donation to help cover gas expenses would be very much appreciated. |
I am currently researching descendants of Jonathan Schaffer born in 1810 in PA and died 1900 in IA.
I am also trying to find anyone who knows the man in the picture in my bio. He is my father-in-law and a huge mystery! The photo is circa 1944 and he usually wore glasses. His full name was Silas Robert MacMillan and he was born in 1918 in Tunkhannock, Wyoming Co. PA to Silas and Bertha MacMillan. He had six known sisters: Mary, Mahala, Margaret, Emma, Bertha, and Elizabeth. We believe he was close to his little sister Bertha because she was listed as his next of kin on his Army dogtags. He lost all contact with his family around 1944 but we would very much like to re-establish contact. He has since passed away...
PLEASE contact me if you know him! Thank you!!

|Patty Burnett||Martha Deatherage Bair|
the info below was taken from gedcom file...
LEVI G. BAIR. He is a merchant, son of David and Mary Ann Bair of Franklin County, Pennsylvania, and was born at Chambersburg, Pennsylvania on Mar. 10, 1842. He received his education in the subscription school of Franklin County, PA. He came to Illinois in 1851, settling in Knox County in 1860. He married Amanda Mann on Nov. 15, 1866 [the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index lists a Levi G. Bair marrying a Amanda Mann in Mercer County on November 15, 1866]. Three children were born to them. He was married again on April 5, 1874 to Martha S. Deatherage [the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index lists a Levi G. Bair marrying a Martha Deatherage in Knox County on April 4, 1874]. A Democrat in politics. He was seven years Collector in Rio, Town Clerk two years and at present is Supervisor. Post Office, Rio.
SOURCE: History of Knox County, Illinois - 1878 - published by Charles C. Chapman.
Note: Jane was apparently a 3rd wife -- whom he married sometime after 1900 (the marriage does not appear in the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index, which stops at the year 1900).
Sorry, but I have no further info.
I think city records may have the spelling wrong. This happens a lot with the Shepherd name. Thanks for removing the Shepard ones.
would you like the 2 girls transferred to you.
I created pages for the 2 girls and linked them to alice and C.D. Forgive the colored chalk, it was all I had.
I could stop by the city clerks office early next week and see if they have a record that has dates. I could not find an obit for the daughters. I am related to Shepherd but the spelling is always a bear. Not related to Shepard. There was a Luther Shepard in early Villisca. Is he related to you?
City Clerk for City of Villisca might, but it maybe listed as Shepherd, Child of Charles on Block 2 lot 71 as this is how it is listed on plat at cemetery. if you contact them make sure they know this is Original section as the cemetery has 3 sections Rose Hill, Rose Lawn, and Original. it is worth a try but you may need to have them check all 3 possible spellings Shepherd, Shepard, and Sheperd. I will try to get back to cem to get a better date befor it rains or snow this weekend.
|Cathy Dayton||RE: Elling and Margaret Ellingson|
Hello!! No, the Ellingson's are not relatives of mine. Are you wanting to have the memorials transferred or are you possibly wanting some information on this family? I think that this
name showed up in one of our local history books. -- Cathy:)

I have well over 6000 memorials up. You'll have to be more specific, ie: ceetery, etc.
Go to the memorial, click on the EDIT tab, then Suggest A Correction so the info I need will all be there. I have Mc/Mac Millan in my line, too.
All the best.,
