Mark Sawyer was one of 4 known sons of Jesse & Margaret (Gibson) Sawyer. The family lived in Currituck Co, NC until 1831 when they and the Forbes (some Whites) moved to Hopewell Twp, Marshall Co, IL.

In Sep 1830 Jesse Sawyer and Caleb Forbes (my direct line, also have Sawyers) went on horse back looking for land. They selected the IL land, went back to NC sold everything. In April 1931 they set out on a 5 month 1100 mile wagon trip to IL. On Sept 2 1831 the families arrived and were the first settlers in Hopewell twp, Marshall Co, IL.
