I am looking for any records of George Eleman. I beleive he was born in Wilson County around 1827. I have records of him in a census of 1870 in Cave township, Franklin county Illinois. The spelling of the last name could be a variation. It has been mispelled more than once and I am not sure which is correct. Today it is spelled Elimon. Thank you for anything you might find.

several months ago I saw an old query(mid 1970's) in the River County Journals. It was posted by a Mrs. Mildred Crow. She was asking for info about ELLIS, BOBBITT, PHIPS(FIPS). She stated some info about the Ellis thatwe have been unable to find anywhere. I would appreciate a contact if anyone knows Mrs. Crow or any of her decendants that might have access to this info. Thanks so much, Debby Sullins

They had 11 children that I know of. Lucinda may have come from TN, but this is uncertain, as a different birth state is on each census. I would love to hear from anyone familiar with these names, and these individuals in particular. I am trying to learn W. W. SPEARS and Lucinda ESCUE's parents and their birth places.
