Thanks for answering my message. We believe our family came to Illinois from Kentucky. I have made a couple of trips through Kentucky but couldn't find the necessary link to prove this but I think it is true. We think our family made the trip from Christian Cty., Ky. to Christian Cty., Ilinois and have some evidence that they may have traveled from Livingston and other counties in Kentucky. If your family is from S. Carolina or Virginia I may be able to help you.
