I am researching the Haags-Guthnecks connection and I have arrived at Jasper County, Illinois. My gg-grandfather, Michael Haag , married Julian Guthneck on May 12, 1841, in Jasper County ,Illinois. His son, Lewis, married Elizabeth Shirley on August 17, 1868 in Jasper County. I believe they were married at All Saints Church. Marie Guthneck married Louis Deshler on March 28, 1842 in Jasper County. I'm hoping Julian & Marie were daughters of Charles Guthneck who is shown as one of the original settlers of Newton (?) around 1835. Any help would be appreciated.

Frustrated with trying to find anyon ewho knows who John T. Land's parents were and where from. An old bible that I acquired shows he was born in 1832 in KY, died 1827 . His wife, Nancy Ellis, was born 1835 in IN and died in 1923. I think his father was William, b. 1807, but the bible does not confirm this.They had several children I think---one was Jennie who m. Cummins. My Land and Ellis families were in White CO., IL beginning in year 1809 and many descendants still in that area. Can anyone help. I have had several responses about the daughter Jennie and her family---but what I really want is to go backwards in time. Or if anyone knows of a living descendant that might be able to help I'd appreciate that.

I have been to the new web site,
and I am very impressed!! Unfortunately for me, I haven't had any
hits on my Butler's. I am hopeful though. It would be great if
ILL. had birth certificate info on line for our ancestors in the
mid 1800's. Boundries change, so my G, G, Grandfather was born 50
miles South of the City of Chicago, suppossibly, in Jasper , ILL.
However, no one seems to know where that is now. It was in 1849.
His name was Daniel Madison Butler. FA: William Butler MO: Nancy
Richmon(d). I am
still trying to get over that brick wall. LOL...that's what makes it fun!!
