Looking for information on the above posted names, who were in Illinois before the Civil War.

James H. Johnson -m- Eleanor "Ellen" Madden, lived, Madison Co., Il.
James was born in in Virginia circa 1812. Ellen was born in Missouri, circa 1820. Ellen claimed her father was born in Ireland and her mother in Virginia. James and Ellen were in Madison Co., Il as early as 1860. Their daughter Margaret appears to have been their first Illinois born child, born circa 1846. Their older children were born in Missouri.

William Fields and his wife Maria (possibly Coons) were in McLean Co., Illinois by 1860. He was born in Virginia circa 1810, and she was born in Kentucky circa 1820. Their last known child born in Kentucky was Maria, born circa 1856. In 1860 a woman called Celia Coon lived with them,her age is recorded as 60. Celia listed her pob as Kentucky--and is possibly the mother of Maria wife of William Fields.

Henry Marley married Maira P. Fields 5/14/1879 in Illinois. Nothing is known about Marley.

Would like to make contact with anyone researching these lines.
