  Deb Davis - I am researching this African American family and connecting lines.  I am looking for birth, marriage, and death records.  I would also like to know additional family members and parents where unknown is listed.  This family came from Pope county, Illinois to Pulaski County, Illinois.  If you have information, please email me.  Besides the family below, I am also in search of information on Mary Ward born December 1864 in Illinois.  She married Peter Anderson July 04, 1897 in Grand Chain, Pulaski County, Illinois.
