Notes for JOSHUA EPPERSON:

Burial: Ten Mile Cemetery (grave unmarked).

The Epperson were Welsh.

From: The Short and Simple Annals of the Epperson Family of Hamilton County, IL by Orlan Epperson.

Joshua and his wife, Polly, and eight children made the trip to Illinois from Anderson Co., TN and settled a short distance south east of
Middle Creek Church in Hamilton Co., IL. abt 1836. On the way, after passing through a narrow section of Kentucky, the family
stopped on the bank of the Ohio River and were ferried across that stream to Shawneetown.

Joshua lived only five years after moving into his new log home in Hamilton County. He was not a good farmer. He liked hunting and
the woods much better than farming and had special affection for his long rifle, a muzzle loader. He carried his bullets in a pouch at
his belt. Therein lies the story and the legend. Joshua was never known to buy lead or lead bullets; yet he had recourse to an
apparently endless supply. According to the story handed down, he would go out across the fields, into the woods, and presently
come back with a chunk of crude lead. His family never learned his secret, no matter how hard they tried. He would tell them that
just before he died he would reveal it, but he never did. Three generations of his descendants have discussed this mysterious "lead
mine", and some of the men, including my own father, have scoured the country in vain search for it. Of course, there was never any
natural lead deposits in Hamilton County, but his old Joshua know that?

Sorry it took a few days for me to make the transfer. I wasn't receiving my edits and requests, but hopefully have my computer working again.

RE: L'Heureux
Kristina,

Thanks for your help.

I did find an obit for the son in the Alton Telegraph, but it didn't mention anything about his parents. It said he lived in Florida, just as Sarah Clark Arnold's obit did.

I'll let you know if anything else turns up!

RE: Clark question
Kristina,

I found the 1910 census entry you mentioned, and I'm sure you're right. He's listed as married 1 time; she's listed as married twice.

I bet the census-taker asked her what year she was married, and she gave them her first wedding date. Her marriage to John Clark did take place 36 years earlier. The census taker goofed when he put the same number for her husband, which is understandable.

Napoleon and Mary sure are invisible before and after that census. Talk about a hard name to search for!!

Thanks for your help.

Clark question
Hi Kristina,

Do you have any idea where John W. Clark and Mary Fortine might be buried? They were married in Calhoun County, Illinois on 19 Apr 1875 and their daughter, Sarah Ellen Clark Arnold (1876-1971), is buried at Deer Plain Cemetery.

Sarah's obit lists her survivors as a half-brother, Frank L'Heurex of Clearwater, Florida and a half-sister, Mabel Tisius of Alton. I would take that to mean that Sarah's mother must have remarried at some point.

I figured it was a long-shot, but thought I'd ask you just in case you've come across them in your research.

Thanks for your time!

RE: Lester and Susan Clark
Kristina,

Thanks so much for taking the time to let me know about your family. I have added your information to Lester and Susan's memorials. The background story you sent also enabled me to add links to their parents, who I found on Find A Grave.

I wrote to the owner of George and Lucy Clark's memorials and gave them your great-grandparents' full names and a correction for George's birth year. (They had 1892 instead of 1882.)

I also sent the owner link numbers to George and Lucy's parents, so now you'll be able to go back more than one generation by simply clicking on the links. The people who own George and Lucy's memorials have already taken care of everything I gave them.

I tried to find exact birth and death dates (and places) for Lester and Susan, but couldn't come up with anything. Lester died before death records were kept in Illinois, and I guess they didn't record anything for Susan since she was so young at the time of her death. If you happen to have the dates and/or places for either child, I would like to add them to their memorials.

I would love to add pictures of the stones your dad had made for Lester and Susan. I think that was such a loving thing for him to do, especially considering that both of them died long before he was born.

If you come up with the pictures of the stones, please let me know. Also, if you have any photographs or portraits of your great-grandparents, George and Lucy, we can add them to their memorials, too, if you'd like. To me, seeing a picture of the person on their Find A Grave memorial just makes it so much more personal.

Thanks again for your help!

RE: Frank and Harry Clark
Kristina,

I really appreciate the information about the boys. I was just sure that they had to be twins.

I have up-dated their memorials.

Thanks again!
