I have been tracing my family history for over 50 years. I have a tree on Ancestry with lots of research on the Goben, Alexander, Halligan, Harris, Williams, Gerry, Bell/Beall, Blount/Blunt, Scholes, and DeWalt lines. They all spent time in Illinois, where I'm from, but I currently live in Ohio. If I can do anything for anyone in this state, don't hesitate to ask.

Update 2020: My mother has dementia. Therefore, I have been spending a lot of time with her in Southern Virginia (Near Clarksville) for the past 4 years. While here, I have been documenting African-American cemeteries. If anyone would like some help with finding any, I'm at your service.
