The last account I have on George Jones McCorkle, b 1832 Delaware, is that he was living in 1900 with his son Joseph, b 1857 , b. West Va, and Josephs wife Lefa. They had children Earl, Wrna, and Fred. D. I would very much like to know if there is mention of this family in any Henry County material. I am really in need of George's death place and date of death. I've searched the Illinois death records online, but can not find him. I've tried alternate spellings.



I would like to know where Joshua and Mary Stewart died and were buried. They are in the 1860 Census in Wethersfield Township along with their children John W, Mary, Ellen, Susan, Sarah and Thomas. The parents are gone in 1870, probably died, and the children are living in S.W. Weller Township at different farms. Family stories say they settled in the Red Oak area around 1857. Any help would be appreciated.
