MUSGRAVE, NELSON posted by Whitney McLaughlin on Monday, March 4, 2002

Am looking for anyone who has information about the Quinby MUSGRAVE who married Elizabeth NELSON in Greene County on Aug. 11, 1831. The 1830 Greene County census shows 2 MUSGRAVES, neither of which appear to be Quinby or a household that includes Quinby. I did not find any Nelsons living in Greene Co. in 1830 but noticed some were living in neighboring Macoupin Co. Perhaps Elizabeth's family lived there instead of Greene. My Quimby MUSGRAVE married and had first child born about 1833 in Tennessee. He moved to Mississippi then eventually to Arkansas in the late 1840's. I would like to establish whether or not there is any possibility that this marriage was my Quimby. Thanks in advance!

I am researching two Berry lines in Macoupin. (They may at some point merge...) There is a message from David Bruner on this site and I repeat it here as these are my same people. (We haven't been able to contact him again) ____________________ Looking for information on the following family: Husband: John BERRY Birth: 24 Jun 1766 Place: Augusta Co., Virginia Death: 20 Aug 1845 Place: Macoupin Co., Illinois Other Spouses Marriage: 17 Jun 1802 Place: Bourbon CO., Kentucky Wife: Margaret CLAYPOOLE Birth: 4 Feb 1776 Place: Augusta CO., Virginia Death: 5 Jul 1843 Place: Macoupin Co., Illinois Father: Jesse CLAYPOOLE Sr (1752-1833) Mother: Elizabeth MILLER (1757-1834). _______ John and Margaret Berry's son, Jesse Berry was my ancestor and all these people lived around what is now Palmyra and Modesto, IL. Jesse's land sits on what is now Terry Park lake. Now, my husband has a John and Elizabeth RAYWOOD BERRY who are his ancestors. They were living in Macoupin County at the same time, I am assuming around the Palmyra/Scottville area. This John Berry died about 1855 and I believe is the John Berry buried in Old Union Cemetery in Palmyra. John & Elizabeth's daughters, Chloe and Elizabeth Berry married James and George ROHRER, respectively. SO, if you have any Berry connections, let me know! Julie Clark Close

BACON, KING posted by Terri Casteel on Wednesday, December 4, 2002

Hello, I am searching for someone familiar with Miller Cemetery in Macoupin Co. IL (Barr Township). Our ancestors are buried there. Jeremiah Bacon b. 7 mar 1824 & Susan S. Bacon ( b.4 mar 1825 - 20 Jun 1904), They should be buried together. I purchased some tombstone transcription books but it did not have the info I need. The book transcription had an incorrect date of death for Jeremiah. We know he died between 1860 - 1880 census. Most likely before 1876. His wife Susan S. Bacon is buried with him. According to the transcription the tombstone reads: daughter of _____ King. Apparently the first name was hard to make out. We strongly suspect her to be the daughter of William I. & Martha King. The county clerk could not find a death record for her. If someone could take a closer look at these stones, I would greatly appreciate it. Or maybe point me in the direction of the maker of the headstones...possibly locate records that way? Thank for any assistance you might be able to provide. Terri Casteel
