I find a Mary Jane Goings from Pike Co, Ill who married John H. Gilpin in 1876, Sangamon Co.(in the Illinois Marriage Index). Then in 1886 Mary Jane Gilpin married Charles X Campbell (also in index). Both marriages in Sangamon.
In my grandmother's possessions I find a outdoor photo taken in front of a large wonderful farmhouse - in the photo are three women(two standing, one lounging on lawn), one woman sidesaddle on horse and a man holding reins. At the top of the photo, my in my grandmother handwriting "Springfield " --and then she has written "Aunt Mary Jane Campbell, nee Goings". Also she has labled the man as farm hand, and the woman on the horse as Pearl Campbell. Picture's date I guess to be 1880-1890.
Now, fast forward.....
Mary Jane's will was processed in San Antonio,Texas (date unclear, I'm guessing 1920-1940). Her name is now MJ Jennings. Her will includes only her brothers and sisters - all from her Goings line - with the exception of a Monie Poole (M/F?) who receives a large portion of her estate. I have no idea who Monie Poole is.
Anyone want to exchange???
