HAAS, HERB, KRINARD, STUMBERG posted by Linda Garrett on Saturday, November 4, 2000

I am researching a Herb family that was known to have connections in Bunker Hill, Macoupin Co, IL. From an obit from Madison Co, IL on a Jacob Herb it states he died Feb. 21, 1898 while visiting his daughter, Mary Krinard who lived at Bunker Hill. He was from Wuttemburg, Germany and came to US in 1854. He also had a son, C.A. Herb who was a Senator and preceeded him in death. His son, Charles F. Herb lived in Alton at the time of his father's death. I found there was a William Herb listed on the 1860 census living in Bunker Hill, Macoupin Co, IL and was 21 and also came from Germany. I'm trying to establish that William was also a son of Jacob and that he was the same William that married my g-grandmother, Wilhelmena Haas and lived in Alton. My grandmother, Amelia Herb was born in 1876 and her father had died by 1879 when her mother re-married to Frederick Stumberg. Any help would be much appreciated. Linda Garrett

BUTCHER, CAUDLE, LAND, RENTFRO posted by Betty Kehl Richardson on Saturday, November 11, 2000

The 1830 census index on the site is wonderful. I found several of my Caudles spelled Coddle as usual on the census. Joshua who was born in 1770 in Chatham NC. shows on the 1830 as being 60-70 which is correct. Also on the census are his sons Isham and John. There is also a Jarves Coddle who must be related and I am wondering if anyone knows who he is. Fountain Land shows on the 1830. He was a half brother to one of my direct ancestors Hester Ann Butcher who married Thomas parish Caudle. Her mother was Rebecca Narcissus Rentfro who m. first John Land and second Isaac Butcher. Some of the Caudles are buried in Land Cemetery in Macoupin County. The Land family who donated the land for the cemetery must be the same family as John Land and his son Fountain Land.
