I know my mother's family are locted in Fayette co., IL. My mother was born there in 1907. Parents Henry Kaiser Dowty and Melvina Houston. Her name was Myrtle Alvirda. I have visited family in Beecher City and other areas. The Tipswords were related to the Dowtys thru their gg grandmother, Catherine Ann Dowty. The link I am presently working on is David Dowty b. 1840 in Wayne co., OH, married (I believe) Celia Ellen Force James. They came together to IL from OH. I also believe they made the journey with their parents and siblings, or, one or the other of them followed along very soon after the other, betw 1860 and 1870 (a guess). Any information about them, and also, Sarah Jane Moore, Cartwright Moore,her brother, and Sarah's husband Andrew Houston.
I am also seeking burial info abt. William Palmer Force and Mary Polly Williams, the parents of Lovina Force, gparents of C. Ellen Force James.
Need info about Lovina Force's husband, ? James.
