Greetings All~
I am new to the group and would like to take a moment to share the families that I am working on that were/are in Illinois:

Samuels. Have the family back to Alfred/Alford Samuels who was owned by Mary Samuels. Alfred's first wife was Jane -?- and his second wife was Rebecca Grisson/Grissom (Alfred was her second husband, Grisson/Grissom was her maiden surname). They were from Kentucky and had relocated to Illinois by 1870. They lived the majority of their time in Illinois in McLean County (city of Bloomington).

Monroe. This family was headed by James Monroe and Permilla/Cornelia (Miller) Monroe. They lived in Washington County (city of Richview).

Kimbrough. Headed by Thomas Gaines Kimbrough and Melinda Snordan. Orginially from Kentucky, they first moved to Massac County, Illinois. Others eventually settled in Knox County (city of Galesburg) as well as other states.
