I am descended down through. Magdalene FACTOR and Antoine ERMAN. You must be from this family, but I don't have a Sarah as of yet. I don't have all the children from the brother's and sisters. Let me know if you have any more information, like maybe any other family names?
I'd love to share what we have.
Thanks,

Surnames: Factor, Bosley, Ashbaker
I have come across some info which I want to post for the FACTOR branch that went to IL. Benjamin FACTOR who married Catherine ASHBAKER had the following children (this info was in the 1860 Franklin Twp., Coshocton Co., OH Federal Census): (all dates are approx.)
1) George, b. abt. 1851
2) John, b. abt. 1852
3) Benjamin, b. abt 1855
4) Lewis, b. 1857
5) Mary, b. 1858

In addition to these children, they also had the following:
6) Elizabeth, b. 1862
7) Jacob, b. 1863
8) William, b. 1865
9) Andrew, b. 1866
10) Edward, b. 1867
11) Josephine, b. 1870

In the 1880 Brown Co., IL Census, George is listed with wife Sarah J, (BOSLEY) and his brother John.

My line comes down through George's brother Benjamin who married Margaret "Maggie" MULLEN. I hope this info helps someone.

Surnames: FACTOR, MULLEN
My Benjamin FACTOR who married Margaret "Maggie" MULLEN had a son named Raymond. They lived in Edwardsville (and Alton), Madison Co., IL. Your Raymond may be the son of my Raymond, the grandson of Benjamin. Benjamin was born in Ohio, I believe Coshocton Co.

I'm going to put my 2 cents in here.... My records show that Mathias Factor (b.1895 Alsace-Lorraine,France) and Margaret had a son Benjamin Factor b.1826. He m)Catharina (Katrina) Ashbacker in 1849. Below is the 1880 Census:
Place: Missouri, Brown, Illinois
Benjamin FACTOR 55 b.FRANCE Farmer
Katrina FACTOR 57 b.FRANCE Keeping House
**Benjamin FACTOR 25 b.OH Farmer
Lewis FACTOR 23 b.OH Farmer
Elizabeth FACTOR 18 b.OH At Home
Jacob FACTOR 17 b.OH At Home Andrew FACTOR 14 b. IL At Home William FACTOR 13 b. IL At Home
Edward FACTOR 10 b. IL
Josephene FACTOR 7 b. IL
Their son **Benjamin Factor b.1855 is the only Benjamin in any records that I can find that fits to be the Benjamin that married 30 July 1889 to Margaret MULLEN. I have worked on this line for several years and I believe this is the correct line. I know the dates don't quite match up in the later census reports but I feel the 1880 census is the accurate one.....
Does anyone happen to have a death date for Benjamin b.1855? I don't have any more than a birth and marriage. I just recently found them in Alton, ILL when I was searching for my Brown family there so I haven't yet looked for probate records. Comments welcome!
Thanks, Laura

Hello again, just wanted to say hi, and let you know that I am still working on Factors...have been out of it for a bit, but saw the posting and wanted you to know that I am starting to research again...By the way, I am from Alton, IL; hope to get to Mt Sterling and visit the cemetery there. Did you find Ben in the 1930 Census?in Illinois? The last info I have is thats where he was when he died. Sometime in the 1930's; I have not found his burial, but one could assume its in Mt Sterling where I understand Maggie, his wife, is buried? This is from my father-in-law and research. His name is Ray Factor; his father Jake son of Benjamin and Maggie Factor. Just wanted to touch base and see if we can share info. Please email me at judithecox@aol.com...thanks!

Surnames: Factor, Mullen
Hello, I'm related to the Factors through Maggie Mullen, and I'd like to share with you what I've found in my research. There were actually TWO Benjamin Factor's. Benjamin who married Maggie and his father, Benjamin who married Catherine Ashbaker and were the parents of 11 children. Maggie's Benjamin was married twice. His first wife was Margaret MORGAN who he married on 24 Nov 1885 in Brown Co., IL. She was born in 1866 and died in 1887, along with their infant son they named John. They're buried at Mt. Sterling Catholic Cem. Two years later, he married Margaret MULLEN, daughter of Patrick MULLEN and Sarah Ann MATTINGLY. She was only 17 at the time and her mother was one of the witnesses. Census records reveal they DID move to Alton and they're listed in the 1930 census in Madison Co., Wood River Twp., :

Factor, Ben age 75 OH no occupation
Margaret " 54 IL

Grandchildren Louis Bracht, Jr. (11), Nelson Bracht (9), and Carl Bracht (6) are listed with them. However, Benjamin and Margaret lived next door to daughter Regina and her husband Louis BRACHT, so the children may have been back and forth between the two houses.

According to my research, Benjamin died on 16 March 1937 in Bloomington, McLean Co., IL (Maggie's sister Sarah Hatton lived there at one time). Place of burial is unknown. Maggie died after 1950 so far as I know, but she isn't buried in Brown Co. I have the Brown Co. Cem. book, and neither are listed. All the Factors who died before 1972 (when the book was published) are buried at the Catholic Cem). I've made many visits to Mt. Sterling over the years and can tell you that the Catholic Church there burned down back in the 1930's and so that wonderful source of information is gone. The only info is to be found at the court house and the library.

If I can help you in any other way, please let me know. I've been researching the desecendants of Patrick Mullen and Sarah Mattingly for more than 20 years, I have lots of info about the family if you're interested. You can contact me at trudi_megamug@yahoo.com.
