David was son of Wiliam F. Cora Songer. William was son of William C. Songer who was a grandson of my gr.gr.grandfather by his 1st. marriage. I descend from his 2nd. marriage. The family left Virginia in 1833, settling in Scioto/Lawrence Co., Ohio. About 1854 a couple of the boys a daughter moved to Illinois (Massack/Pulaski Counties).
William C. Songer was married twice also; had 2 children by the first and 4 that I am aware of by the second. William F., was from the second family, and the only one I know much of anything about. His siblings were Lura Belle, Mary Ellen Thomas. I think that David P. Songer had a brother named Thomas and another, which name is not known to me???
David did marry Ellen Lorraine Crippen on 5-14-1933. She was born Pulaski Co., Illinois in 1915, daughter of W.C. Crippen and Nora (Wilcox?) at this time I do not know if they had children or what became of Ellen.
Sorry, I could not be of more help. The Songer Family Association published a genealogical history of the Songes, three years ago. I am thinking of updating it in the near future. Anything you could add would be very much appreciated, and everyone gets credit for their contribution. If you wish to exchange additional information, my E-mail is: DHSonger@aol.com
