Would appreciate contacting any one with a 1860 census listing for LaSalle County. The family I am looking for lived in Sandwich which I understand could be found in DeKalb and La Salle Counties. They are not found in the DeKalb listings. The family consisted of: Leonhard Scheurich born 1820 in Baden, Prussia, Anna his wife born 1828 in Sachsen, Mary a daughter born 1845 in Prussia, Lui a son born 1857 in Toledo, Ohio, and a baby Anna born April 30, 1860 in Sandwich. She may have died shortly after birth. Any details about this family would be appreciated as all I have now is taken from a bible. Thank you very much. John in California

Stohr, Myers, Singer John Stohr lived in LaSalle Co. around 1850. He may have married Sarah Jane Myers there. I know the Henry Myers family lived there starting in the 1840's and left for IA in the 1850's. Henry Myers and wife, Sarah Ann had several children born there, 1842, 1845, 1852, 1857 and a couple more that I'm not sure of the date. John Stohr's sister, Victoria married Frank Singer there. It tells this in the old family Bible that records John and Sarah Jane's marriage. A daughter, Elizabeth Singer wrote to her cousins and sent a lock of hair. This was saved in the Bible. I can find no records of their ever having lived there. Can you help?

From what I have seen, many other families from Susquehanna County, PA especially the towns of Harmony and Great Bend settled in the parts of Illinois where my Skinners settled.All were sons and daughters of Jacob Skinner (1778) and Rhoda McDowell (1881). This is an old family, arriving in the U.S around 1650.Lee County; China Twp.Alpheus G. Skinner (1/1817) m. Olive Lewis (1824). They had one son David (1849) as of 1850.

He had 2 boys that were not living with them (not sure if they stayed in PA or came to IL, no names in 1830/40 census). Laura and Eli Kinney were living with them. My guess is Laura is their daughter. Eli Kinney was borni in NY as was Laura.Cook Co., Town of ThorntonJosiah Skinner (1824) was an innkeeper in Thornton, Cook, IL in 1870. He may have came west after the four mentioned above. He married Hannah ? and had in 1870: Fayette (boy) (1849), Ambrosia (1854, in IL), Emert (1862), Bertha (1864), Mary (1867) and Jessie (10/1869).

March 3, 1999Wednesday I'm looking for the family of William and Mary Ann Clark Madden, in LaSalle County, Ill. Their two older girls Sarah (Sally) was born abt. 1845 in Ill., and Jane Waddle born in 1847 in Ill. Don't know about other children Tom born abt. 1855, Tressa Lee, Ann, Maggie,(poss. Maragret), and Charles(Charlie), these children was born between 1860 and 1865, the youngest was born in June of 1865, his obit say he was born in Saline, Mo.; however, don't know if this is right. Jane Waddle Madden married John Porterfield in 1865 in Ill., she told her family that is still living that the family was originally from Ill. Sarah (Sally), married William Jennings, and was in Charition County, Mo. by 1870; her family that is still living doesn't know if they married in Mo., or in Ill. as did her sister Jane. Tressa Lee married a Stephenson but I think the family had moved to Missouri by this time. Ann died when she was about 14 years old, as what I have shows her to be one of the younger children that was born between 1860-1865. Maggie married a Jennings also, that was suppose to be related to William Jennings. Charles moved to Dade County, Missouri in about 1886, he married and raised his family here, his two sisters Jane and Sally also came to Dade County around this time. Tessa Lee stayed in the norhtern part of Mo., around the Charition and Saline County area, raising her family there. When Charles died in October 1936 his obit had the other 3 children that didn't come to Dade County in the following towns, Tessa Lee Stephenson in Snyder, Mo. Tom in Everret, Wash., and Maggie Jennings in Prague, Ok. I have a birthdate and death date on William Madden b. 1802, died in 1882, don't have any dates on Mary Ann Clark Madden, both William and Mary Ann was born in Ohio according to the census records. What I do know about the family is sketchy as it has been handed down by the family. One thing that they all agree about is that the family was suppose to have come to Missouri from Ill. I ask my Grandmother who was the daughter of Charles Albert Madden if it was possible that the two older girls was half sisters to the younger kids, since they was born in 1840's and the others in the 1860's. She didn't think that was, she seemed to think that all of the children had the same two parents.

My greatgrandfather,Christ Hausmann Sr.,and his family came to LaSalle county from Germany at 1865 and lived in LaSalle county until 1871 when they moved to Carroll county, Iowa. Any information about the Hausmann's or Mendota or Troy Grove during this time period would be greatly appreciated. They were Catholic and my great-greatgrandmother, Catherine,died and was buried near the Catholic church near Troy Grove.
