Subject: Eyler/Ridings
Text of Query: In 1859 Felicia Bethel Ridings m Philip Eiler. I have found no trace of Felicia since that marriage date. In 1862 Philip married Selinda Jane Study in McDonough Co., IL. They were divorced shortly after their marriage.
Does anyone have access to the 1860 census for McDonough Co.? the Mortality Schedule for 1860? or McDonough Co. divorce records? Cemetery records?
In 1895 her brother testified for another sibling. In his testimony, he stated that his sister died of comsumption, or so he understood. He lived in Schuyler Co. all his life. That leads me to believe that Felicia did not live in Schuyler Co. when she died.
I'd appreciate any help someone can supply!

Text of Query: Dear listers,
I have been searching for my gggrandfather WESLEY CLARK HERRON. Here is the information I have on Wesley: WESLEY CLARK HERRON b. (by his own accord on civil war union muster records) July 20, 1833 KNOX COUNTY, OHIO (by other records) m. September 6,1865, Tamaroa, Perry Co., IL, MALINDA ELIZABETH BURGE b. October 24,1843, Wayne County, IL.,d. July 9, 1897, Jefferson County, IL., they had six children. Wesley served in the 84th IL VOL INF from 1862-1865. I first find written record of him in the Federal Military Census of 1861 and 1862 of men 18 to 45 in Emmet Twp., McDonough County, IL. He, after marriage in southern Illinois, returned to Emmet Twp., where in April 1869 their second child was born and died, being buried in the Sickle family cemetery in Emmet Twp., their third child, my ggrandfather, was born April 1870 in Jefferson County, Illinois, therefore, sometime between April 1869 and April 1870 they moved to Jefferson County. I have been unable to find Wesley in the 1850, 1860, or 1870 census. I first find him in the Federal census of 1880, in Rome Twp., Jefferson County, Illinois. He lists his father from VA, mother from ____ . Most of my information was gleaned from military pension records. After the government established the pension for Civil War veterans and their families; Wesley's widow tried hard to obtain a pension for herself and her children. The pension file is about a foot thick. I have all of Wesley's descendants to present, most of us have stayed in Illinois. Now for the kicker, which I can't connect. At the same time as Wesley's stay in Emmet Twp., there was an ALEXANDER G. HERRON living there, he was from Knox Co., OHIO, he (by written record) married, in Knox Co., Margaret SAPP also of Knox Co., June 9, 1836. Her family is well documented in the area of Knox Co. I find Alexander and Margaret in the 1840 and 1860 census of FAYETTE AND McDONOUGH COUNTIES, IL., but not in the 1850 census. Also their youngest child, a daughter, is buried in the Stickle family cemetery, not far from, Wesley's child. I have researched Alexander's children in hopes of a connection to Wesley, so far not connecting to them. Has anyone ever come accross the name WESLEY CLARK HERRON in their research? This is my brick wall. Thank you, David Herron in Peoria County, Illinois

Their children were Pitt, DeWitt, Ray, D.V.T (a male), and Mary. I believe that DeWitt married Lucey O.

Actually, I am looking for a possible daughter, Elzabeth, that was born around 1863 or 1864.
