I am looking for an obituary of Alanson HILL He was a civil war vet In Co. A, 36th Ohio Infantry as a private. He died in Windsor Twp., Shelby co., Illinois. He was buried in Danville National Cemetery, Danville, Vermilion Co., Illinois, section 1, site 80 R. Multiple people have stated that an obituary in the Windsor Newspaper for an Alanson Hill [1816 – 4 Apr 1901] has a huge genealogical file on his family, ancestors, etc. It was published within a week after his death on April 4, 1901. Have tried Ancestry etc. Any possibilities to get obit?

I'm still stumped on the parentage of my Abner REED (m. Temperance MOUTRAY). They married in Shelby, lived in Fayette from 1850 to 1865 state census, then disappear off the face of the earth with no trace that I can find. Their daughter Dicy REED marries John BIGGS and they migrate to McDonald County, Missouri, but can't find any evidence that her parents accompanied them. Meri Arnett [email protected]

I scour Ebay for Civil War images from several regiments, and I ran into this image of Hiram SCARBOROUGH. I looked him up and thought you might like to copy the scan and add it to his bio. I have been collecting random Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana Civil War images for a number of years, and I think I have another one of Hiram that I found long ago. The CDV on Ebay is quite pricey, but they sell for 100-400 dollars, depending on quality, identifications, and type of image--tintype, cdv, daguerreotype.

I am looking for information concerning a deceased uncle. His name is George CARPENTER. George is buried in the Prairie Home Cemetery, Moweaqua, Shelby County, Illinois. He died in 1916 when only 25 years old. His parents were Mary (GREEN) CARPENTER and my grandfather Lewis W. CARPENTER. Mary divorced my grandfather in 1891 and moved from Baldwin, Kansas to Shelby County, Illinois sometime thereafter. Her family was from there and she was living with an Aunt, Nora (KELLAR) PHILLIPS, in the 1900 census along with George. 

Mary (GREEN) CARPENTER was the niece of Cornelia SANNER I know who her parents are, but unfortunately after she left Kansas where they remained, there doesn't seem to be clues as to her final outcome. With her son dying in 1916, you would think she would be found nearby. Don't know where she went and I can't understand why she wouldn't have been with him and her aunt when they moved to Colorado (1910 census). And then George CARPENTER somehow gets back to Shelby County, Illinois, and dies there at age 25.

I would like more information about George CARPENTER and his mother. I really am curious about George's cause of death. He received an inheritance from his Grandmother, Rebecca CARPENTER in 1914. George was my father's half-brother.
