Re: Alton Family Research - MO or IL

Late 1860s to present in both Missouri and Illinois. There is a connection between my "Devan" ancestors and the "Altons". As a generous member of this form pointed out, A Harriet Alton with (2) children were living next door to Richard Devan. This same Harriet Alton also moved to Perry, Illinois where my Devans moved sometime after 1874. They lived in Lost Prairie, Perry County Illinios. Right next to Randolph, Illinois. they (the families) were coal miners. Emma Alton, Harriets daughter died 4/23/1939 in McHenry County Illinois. I can't find William anywhere.

Harriet was born in 1830. I think she may be Richard Devan's daughter because of her age. I am thinking maybe there are some Altons that would know the relationship........
