|Waunita M Herron||Amos Reed marriage!|
Thank you for looking even if you did not get the results I had hoped for. The actual license was gotten earlier than the marriage took place. The wedding guests arrived at Joel Sanfords home and also the bride, but no groom showed up. Finally all went home. No way to get a message to his bride that his mother Currance Sanford Reed was critically ill and the Dr. said for him to leave might bring on her death. She revived and live about 20 more years.

Thank you so much for the transfer of my GG Grandfather Simon.
As for marriage records, my G Grandfather Amos Reed and Elizabeth Marie Fargusson were married at the home of his Uncle, Rev.Joel Sanford, on Oct. 25th, 1855 in Peoria Co. Illinois. Is there any record of this available?

|Kim Hanks||Judge Andrew Hunt|
I wondered if you would consider writing a piece on the Judge for the Prairie Roots Peoria County Genealogical Society.
I came upon the Judge when I realized he was one of the first owners of my property in West Peoria and then also noticed he owned my grandparents property in Kickapoo.
Thanks for considering this. I am fascinated by him.
|Donna Bergman||Lucretia Bachelor Gillham Slane|
I have a picture of Lucretia but am looking for pictures of the rest of her family. Willing to share.
I'm searching for the McCabe family and noticed you have Patrick H McCabe listed. I cannot find an obit or any documentation, however, of his d.o.d. Can you confirm this? Also, what I really need to know is if Patrick H McCabe is the brother of Elizabeth McCabe, who married Alexander McDonnell.
Any assistance you can give me is greatly appreciated!
|Melissa O'Brian||Richard Longalnd inquiry|
If you know Peoria county, you just might want to take this & run with it!
That's okay with me. Please keep me posted.
Are corrections for One Foot in the Grave being taken care of? I know I don't get anything in my email concerning them and was just wondering if anybody else does. I know John used to do them.

|Dave Wetzler||Follow up on Jacob Best|
I have found Jacob and Elizabeth Best in the 1850 US Census for Illinois which lists his and Elizabeth's birthplaces as Darmstadt.
I'd be happy to send the image to you.

Dear Mel, I've been doing a little work on Christopher Hartman's Find A Grave site. Check it out and tell me what you think. Thanks, Baxter
