In Response To: Re: UGR in Northern Illinois 1850 ()
This was a really good thought. As far as I can tell, the family moved from New York to Illinois in 1833. Much of Mortimer's father's family...and possibly Maryette (Reed) Minkler's family stayed behind in New York. The 1840 census for LaSalle, Illinois, where the family was living, shows no free black individuals living with the family. I'll keep following this idea, though. Thanks.
