My gr-great grandparents were Amos Greenlee & Mary Ann Mathis.I have that they were married 10-14-1855 in Brown County. I also show that Amos was married Elizabeth Scollard on May 19,1877 [after Mary Ann died].

Well, I guess we are related all the way back to Grandpa Amos! Thank you for the info. I didn't have the dates of birth on Amos and MaryAnn's children. The two people I are really wondering about are Amos' grandparents. I know his parents, John and Matilda were married on 8/8/1833, but WHEN were HIS parents (John & Sarah) born. Do you have any info on them or on Archibald b. 1755 and Jane Greenlee, who came to this country from Scotland during the time of the Revolutionary War?
If you can send me the photo of Amo's gravestone, I'd love to show it to my Dad. I know he'd get a huge kick out of it.

Thank you so much,
Kathy Greenlee Daller

Just another note. I love looking at dates and how they coincide with todays time. I was born almost to the day 100 years after Amos and MaryAnn were married. They were married October 14, 1855 and I was born October 17, 1955.

Amos and Levina Shumaker Greenlee, Amos' 3rd wife, are my Great-great grandparents. Their son,Charles C. Greenlee b.25 April 1881, is my great grandfather.
I just started on ancestry last weekend and I find I can't get enough of it. Do you know anything about Amos' third wife, Levina? Her mothers maiden name was Cherrybone, and I was wondering if this is a native american name.

Also buried in Wiley Cemetery, Colfax,Il.I would be glad to share the information about all the children.My email, ronaldkreitzer@att.net.
