Otis Newton KOONCE is my grandfather. I am descended through his wife Ina Violette ARCHER. I am extremely interested in knowing more about Otis and his parents. But to help you; this is the info I have:

Jasper Koonce b. 1842 (38 yrs in 1880) IL (PA or TN?), d. ca 1882 McLeansboro, Hamilton Cnty, IL, m. 1879 McLeansboro, IL Margaret Ann HILL b. 1851 (29 yrs in 1880), d. ? Children: #1 Amanda KOONCE b. 1873 Mt. Vernon, IN, d. ?, m. ? Norbert ZELLER; #2 Minnie KOONCE b. 1875 (5 yrs in 1880), d. ?, m. 16 Jun 1900 Charles William ZELLER; #3 Martha KOONCE b. 1877 (3 yrs in 1880), d. Died young; #4 Otis Newton KOONCE b. 28 Jul 1880 McLeansboro, IL, d. ?, m. 21 Jun 1908 Granada, Prowers Cnty, CO Ina Violette ARCHER; #5 Dwight N. KOONCE b. Feb 1891 CO, d. ? m. ?. I will send scan of sources I have if you would like. I would very much like to know your line of descent from Jasper. I assume it is through Amanda but would like more details. That goes for Todd KOONCE also. My website is --

How is your Koontz spelled? My grandfather was Clarence Koontz, also born around Greenville, Il or Bond County. His parents were George and Mary Etta Coleman Koontz and George's parents were George and Margaret Jane Kelly Koonce. Notice the change in spelling. My grandfather had brothers Charles, Leonard and Fred and sisters Jessie and Lillie. Do any of these sound familiar?

So sorry the given names are unknown to me. The spelling can be the same. Many Coontzs in Illinois. Good luck....

My Grandfather, George Eugene Koonce, had 5 siblings. Don't think it is a connection at that level. He was raised by his aunt, don't know their names yet, can ask my Dad. George ran off to marry my grandmother, Agnes Copeland, when they were 19 and 14 yrs old respectively. THis was in late 1910's i think. Agnes died in c.1972. George is still alive(95 yrs old) and lives in Fla.

I can connect brothers of Jasper N. Koonce of McLeansboro, IL as I am a descendant of his brother Elijah Willis Koonce.

Hi, your post caught my eye. I was wondering if Linda Koonce is your mother or what relation to you. Also you mentioned they moved to the Willamette Valley, so I am wondering if Linda Koonce that you mention ever lived in or around Salem Oregon. If so please contact me. we need to talk.
