    Best genealogy moment After about 10 years of searching the old fashioned way...I finally found my ancestors for the first time on the 1850 census. I was looking for a Britton Yarbrough and sure enough there on the census in Williamson CO. IL was my GGGrandfather Britton Zarbourn... Thank goodnes someone had told me to look at any and all spellings

    Hi! I would love it if there was a connection but I’m doubtful that there is. The only Illinois connection that I'm aware of is my Williams line. My 2nd Great Grandmother Elizabeth Ann Williams was born in Williamsburg, IL but her parents had originated in other states (KY and IN), although they did marry in Shelbyville, Shelby County, IL, and her grandfather Bayliss Williams (born in VA) died in Shelbyville. By the time Elizabeth Williams married, she and her family had moved on to Kansas. That branch of my family didn't stay put for very long!

    Kim Isn't it funny how people from the same county almost feel related just knowing the areas and names we talk about. I have read the census so many times, that I wish some of them were related...(left good paper trail) In 1881 Mary Lancaster married William Yarber. Mary Lancaster had previous children. Albert Lancaster is believed to be the son of a Smyth who lived in Bowlesville. Cora married a George Biggs. Frank married Mattie Heffington from Union CO. KY. Mary is suppose to be buried at Gold Hill. Mary's brother Joseph moved to White CO. and married a Jamerson and sister Rosa married her brother. Frank married Lutitia Jane Gossett Roark. Jane had two boys Wm. and Oscar Roark. Frank then married Mollie Nevels. Frank died in 1899, I would like to know if he has a stone. William's mother was Amanda Parrott b.1838 Franklin CO.NC After William's father died 1863 in Pope CO.IL Amanda married Thomas Clark. Thomas in buried in Hogan cemetary. Their son Tom Clark married Dora Johnson. Daughter Jennie married George McClusky. And Lou married George Vaughn.A daughter Rachael married Adam Evans. Amanda and Rachael died in 1902. A cousin married Tom and Susie Hyatt's son Marvin

    Hi Ramona. My sister and I have made the jaunt to Gallatin County, IL, being nosey what names do you have there? and as you stated they do like to slide into Ky, have had some experience with Union County Ky as well, although we didn't make the run. If I remember correctly the court house in Gallatin only releases certified copies of documents, costs a little more. I have a few pictures of cemeteries there, most from St. Patricks, if our names cross maybe I have some that will help. I don't know how close you are to Carbondale Il but Irad has several original documents, we were there a few years ago and found some marriage records.
