My Family settled in Oconee , Ill prior to 1850 the picture of the house a cousin gave is the home of my 2nd great grand father.My father and mother where born in (Shelby & Effingham Co)Illinois , moved to northern Indiana spring of 1958 ......Relatives..............................include..Beck,Miller,Settle,Mitchell,Sarver,Welch,Frailey,Jones,Beeson,Lawrence,Calhoon,Merrick,Hart,Chatham,Moore,Walker,WakeField,Askins,McDaniel..onw cousin I had to tell who her grand parents where that she only remembered from her childhood which made her a 2nd cousin. I started doing this when I was 12 after getting info from my grand parents and family members, I do do my research a 1790 Gallup record made it kinda easy.

Allen & Malinda (Beck) Wakefield are my 3rd great grandparents. I was wondering if there's any chance we might be related.

Hi, sorry about the delay, lots of problems.
I have her born in 1741. Hope this helps.
If she was born in 1754 she was born after her mother died.

You are very welcome. I also have family there and most of the pictures I have added have GPS location so they are easier to find.

RE: Rebecca Gilkey
Hello, I am 1st cousins 6x removed.

I show her dates as:17 Nov 1753 - 23 Nov 1832.

Is this who you are talking about?

Do you have any information on the Rebecca your asking about?

Rebecca was the daughter of James Gilkey and Martha Morton.

Hope this helps, JD Gilkey

RE: Mary Denton Ray
Hi, so nice to hear from you. Yes, I'd love to know more about Mary Denton (my 3x great grandfather's sister). Preston Denton and his family also went to Texas, sometime after 1855, since he's found in the 1855 Illinois state census for Shelby County. I'm not sure where he was or why he went there, but he didn't stay long because he appears in the 1860 census for Shelby County again. What is the Collins colony? Do you have details about Mary's death--or Robert Ray's remarriage? Any info would be appreciated. Kind regards, labwriter (Becky)

RE: James Moore
Hi, RW:

Thanks for contacting me about James A Moore in Sidener Cemetery. Do you know what his birth and death dates were? Were his parents Robert C Moore (1805-1830) and Mary Franklin Lingo Moore (1809-1888)?

I will be happy to update his memorial with your new info when you get back to me. My email is or you can post it on my contributor page.

Thanks. Do you know where Ruben Gallup's mother is buried? I found his father and linked him.
