John,

I have "Toler's And Allied Families of Union Co. Illinois" and found it very helpful. Since James Irvin TOLER is my direct ancestor, I try to obtain as much information on him and his family as I can. I would mery much appreciate an email address for Cecil TOLER if you have one. I have a lot of inoramtion he may be interested in and I also have some questions he may be able to help me with.

I would appreciate it if you could help fill in some blanks for me, re my husband's family the Tolers.

I have that Jesse Toler and Catherine Irvin had 2 children, Nancy J Toler b 1812 d 1863 and James Irvin Toler, b 1819. Nancy apparently married her first cousin, William B Toler , b 3/2/1800. His parents were Stephen Thomas Toler b 1762 d 1818 and Elizabeth Powell b 1763 d 1826.

So I would assume that Jesse and Stephen were brothers, but I don't have Jesse's parents. Stephen parents were Thomas Toler b 1740 d 1813, and Mary Winnford Massey b 1743 d 1813.

Can you help with this? Thanks in advance!

Deborah,

You and I agree on the namnes and dates you have listed. You are correct, that Jesse and Stephen had the same father, Thomas. I did not have Thomas' wive's complete name. I just had her as Winifred. Can I ask your source for her complete name. Also, I have Jesse and Catherine as having a total of 10 children. Do you want the names of the other children besides Nancy and James?

Hi Mike

Yes, I would like the other siblings names. I have one other now, John W Toler, b 6/12/1824 d 5/1/1866. He is the father of James Irvin Toler, b 10/21/1846. This James Irvin Toler is the father of John Love Toler, who is the father of another James Irvin Toler, b June 1910, who is the father of Alicia Veley, nee Toler.

There is a series of posts on genealogy.com, under the thread James Irvin Toler family bible, which is where I got all of this. After I untangled the brothers' aspect, it all made sense. I don't have access right now to any census material, but these posters seem to be quite sure.

Thanks for your help.

Deborah

A Bible record states that Col. Silas C. Toler was born July 16th 1831 in Union Co. Ills. This same Bible record state "Col S. C. Toler departed this life M'ch 2nd 1863 age 31 years, 7 mos & 14 days at the time of his death was in the service of the "Greate Republic"" Is there any listing for his family in the Cecil Toler book.

There is a short paragraph on page 46 which states his date of birth as 18 Jun 1831 and his date of death as 02 Mar 1863. It lists his place of death as Harrisburg, Dauphin County, PA . His cause of death is stated as Character of Disease. It shows he was a Colonel, promoted to General but that he died before his promotion became official.. It lists his wife as Mary Jane DAVIDSON, and that he had one child, Cyrus Kent TOLER. I notice that the cemetery record shows a different date of birth then the bible record. .
