My great grandparents were listed on both the 1880 and 1900 census as being in Stonefort, Saline, Illinois. Names were Charles ENLOW and wife Mary. I am looking for information on Charles ENLOW. On the 1900 census he stated he was b 44, was 58 years old, had immigrated in 1852, was a naturalized citizen and had been unemployed for 12 months. He is listed as being born in France and the oldest child is listed as being born in 1877 in Kentucky, all the rest born in Illinois, up to my grandmother, Emma Elizabeth b in Stonefort in 1897. Charles died in September of 1900. I have been unable to find him in any death records or obits for Saline County, nor have I found him in the Naturalization records yet. I don't know if he came to America alone (he would have been 8-10 years old) or if he came with family or who they were. Mary ROBERTSON was born in Hart Co., KY and was there in the 1860 census. I don't know if she and Charles met and married in Hart Co., but based on the birth of their first child in 1877 at least they probably married (in 1875) in Kentucky somewhere. Any help would be much appreciated. I have info to share on their descendents.

Looking for anyone with information on Land family that I found in 1850 Saline Co.Fed.Census. Father is Reuben, mother Rhoda, children are Thomas, William, etc. What brought me to Saline County was the fact that these same people are listed in the 1870 Il.Census Index as being Lands, not Land. My interest is because my husband's greatgrandfather was William Lands who died in Farmington, Mo. and was the son of Nancy Barton from Clark Co., Il and William Lands from Il.or Ind.(seen both ways). My husband's gggrandfather has been very difficult to find and document. Wonder if somewhere along the line his name was ever Land, not Lands. My Wm.Lands would have been born around 1840 or so, just like the William Lands in the 1850 Saline co.census. If anyone is familiar with this family's descendants, and the proper spelling, please contact me. It could be my link to William Lands, so far the most difficult ancestor to find, even though it wouldn't seem that difficult. Thank you.

I am looking for information on a Heli or Eli Herring that was married to a Nancy Renshaw?. They had several children, William E. Nancy P, and a Sarah E. There may have been more. Heli and Nancy lived in Hopkins Co. KY till about 1832 and then moved to Gallatin Co., IL which is not Saline. I have come across a article where Heli was running for a seat in the Illinois Senate. If anyone has any information on Heli or where I can find additional information about his campaign, I would like to hear from you.

Can anyone assist in identifying the parents of Mary Catherine Empson, who married Michael Abney in Gallatin (now Salin) County on 4 AUG 1844 (They were the parents of George W. Abney). Catherine was born in Tennessee ca 1822. She married John H. Carson and had three children by him following Michael's death in 1855. Catherine died 6 JAN 1870. The only Empson I have found on the 1840 Illinois census is Jonathan in Williamson County, and he is too young to be her father.

Looking for the parents of Martha J. Jones, who married George W. Abney in Saline County on 30 DEC 1867. Various census returns consistently list Martha's place of birth as Tennessee; however, her birthdates vary between 1848 and 1852. The photocopy of their marriage license does not list the parents nor the bondsman. The widow Bathena Jones listed on page 43 of the 1865 Saline County census is a likely possibility. Unfortunately that Jones family does not appear on the 1860 census; so that lead cannot be verified.

I know that these records sometimes have errors but all other records for the family were correct. Would someone with access to the 1900 census for Saline County Raleigh District verify which of these years should be correct. Her father was John Pinkney Wesley.
