Surnames: PEARSON MARTIN TURNER WILLIAMSON CAMMACK SIOMONTON
Submitter: Jim Pearson ([email protected])
Date: 05 Apr 2001

My PEARSON line also had strong ties to Illinois and La Salle County at about the same time. Henry and Delilah (WILLIAMSON) PEARSON, my gg-grandparents, were married in Ohio in 1844 but moved to La Salle County. Their second through eighth children (Sarah, Angeline S, Evander W, Ellen J, James L, Dellra, and Louis U) were all born in Mendota, La Salle IL between 1847 and 1866 where Henry died on 10/27/1870. Delilah died 12/5/1912 in Sulphur Springs, Cloud, KS. Henry was one of 9 siblings born in Ohio to James PEARSON of South Carolina and Tamer Jane (CAMMACK) JAY her second husband. Henry and Delilah's first-born son, my g-grandfather Michael Cover PEARSON (b 8/3/1845 Ohio d 1912?) married Anna TURNER (b 1848) in La Salle County on 12/25/1866. Michael and Anna appear in Meridian KS in 1870. I know from family stories Michael was a traveling minister and he and Anna were said to have had 11 children. I have been able to identify some of the 11 names but am not sure of birth dates or locations except for a few. My grandfather, James Mark PEARSON was born in Sulphur Springs Kansas in 1879 maybe Michael and Anna moved there to visit his widowed mother who may have moved there after Henry's death in 1870 or the other way around since Michael and Anna were in KS in 1870 also. There are several WILLIAMSON's listed in Cloud County KS. A daughter, Lillie D. PEARSON Married E. ALLEN MARTIN on 5/4/1892 (his 2nd, her 1st) in La Salle that was witnessed by a sister Belle PEARSON. Lillie and E. A. Martin raised James Mark Pearson as an orphan for some number of years. E. ALLEN MARTIN's parents Richard MARTIN and Minerva ALLEN were also married in La Salle County Illinois on 5/5/1861. Other siblings of Michael and Anna may have been Nathan (b 1883/5 Miltonvale, Cloud, KS) Inez, Hattie/Hallie, Floe, Winnie and Hazel (KAYS). James moved to Idaho in about 1903/4 after serving in the Navy from 1900 - 1903/4 and was married there in 1905 to Myrtle (Pearson) and in 1908/9 to Zilpha (SIMONTON) daughter of William L SIMONTON and granddaughter to Benjamin and Anne SIMONTON. His brother Nathan joined him for awhile at some time after 1905 so I am not sure how many siblings were born or married in La Salle IL or Cloud KS Counties.

This is not really a query. I purchased a small photograph and an old work ID card at a flea market in Tampa FL which I would like to reunite with the family. The photograph is of two young boys named Fred and John ELLIOTT and is marked "P.W.S. Rawson Photographer in Peru and La Salle Illinois" The work ID card shows a much older John C. Elliott working at Firecraft Door Company in Chicago and contains a photo of Mr. Elliott, his date and place of birth, plus height, weight, hair color, eye color and Social Security number. Will gladly return this item to someone who can show me that they are closely related to this family
