SIMCOX reply to Susan McLuckie
December 1998
I am looking for the date of death for Josephine Whitley SIMCOX. All I know about her is that she was born 2 DEC 1862, died early in June 1942, and is buried in Patoka (I don't know which cemetery). I have a piece of coverlet she stitched that I would like to give her great-great granddaughter, and with it a list of the relatives that have owned it. All I am looking for is the actual date she died in June 1942. Any help would be appreciated. I need this for Christmas, so I think snail-mail wouldn't help at this late date. I would have posted this earlier, but I just found this web-site. My address is either [email protected] or [email protected] Again, thank you.

CORNELIUS reply to Thomas J. McBryde
December 1998
ILLINOIS CORNELIUS from late 1700s to mid 1800s. Seeking anyone with knowledge of IL CORNELIUS. During the years of about 1790 to around 1875. I have CORNELIUS ancestors that were born, married or buried in one or more of the following IL counties. Scott, Greene, Jersey, Calhoun, Menard, Sangamon, Macoupin, Madison, St. Clair, Bond Marion, Jefferson, Clay and last Macon Co. Joseph CORNELIUS b 1775, Kent Co. MD, was among the first to come to IL in St Clair Co, but most of his children were b in Jersey Co IL between 1807 to 1820. Two of Joseph’s nephews, Daniel Smith CORNELIUS b 1793 MD and Daniel’s brother Zachariah CORNELIUS b 1795, Kent Co MD. Daniel Smith fought in War 1812 in Macoupin Co IL and was in TX by 1817 in Red River Co. Zachariah stayed in Bond Co. and had two large families of children. There is a reported of another John of this line reported to have come to IL , but I do not have proof as yet. I have been able to find living descendants of these CORNELIUS, one living in IL, one and KS, another in Dumas TX and my wife in Austin TX, and finally one in FL. But I have many unanswered questions and if anyone is willing to share data with me perhaps both of us can expand our lines. Tom Thomas J.
