I am researching several African American families in Madison and adjoining counties--Clinton, Washington, and Bond. My Madison County family is the Henry Curtis family. Henry, born circa 1780 in Orange County, North Carolina was a free person of color; listed as mulatto or white. Henry first appeared on the 1820 Bond County, Illinois census; 2nd on the 1825 Clinton County, Illinois state census; next on the 1830 Clinton County, federal census; and the 1840 Madison County, Illinois census. I am unsure if he is the 69 year old listed on the 1850 Washington County census. Other families: Mayhew, Hickman, Pendergrass, Burns and Goins.

Contact for these ancestors is Lyle Gibson, if you can add to this family history please send email.
