Someone is looking for a Pforr in Coles County Illinois. My name is Karl Pfoor and I believe the I had some relatives in Coles County Illinois however the ending of the names are spelled differently. There are very similiar circumstances that surround these two names. Pforr & Pfoor come from Hesse Germany and they both lived in Coles county Illinois. Could maby the names been changed somehow but ther are all related. I also have ancestory PFOOR in California, Iowa, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and I am formerly from NJ, but now live in Wyoming. I just started looking for the family last night and have never been so confused in my life. I have found people that I never new exsisted and now possibly are related with a different spelling. Anyone please answer so I can getr some sort of idea about what I am doing. Thanks!!

I have the Pfoor family from Coles County, Illinois in my family tree. They are Francis Phoor and his wife Francis Elizabeth Verse (Virse) Pfoor and their 7 children. They lived in Salisbury, and later in Hutton, Coles, Illinois. I have a little info but not much with the children after the 1880 census. It may be that we can see if we match if I knew how you work your way up to my end. I am Laura Hoseney at laurahoseney@comcast.net, to share.

Dear Laura,

Know nothing about Pforr family but believe we are related. My grandfather's grandfather was Anderson Cross, father of Nancy J. Cross who was first wife of Burkhart Hoseney. May have info of interest and hope you can help me. Am at: gcutright@rr1.net. Would appreciate a response.
