Bio and Links
My name is Patricia Anne Henson Napier. I was born in Bloomington, Illinois, raised in LeRoy, Illinois and now live in Oklahoma. My main interest is genealogy. The names I am researching are Henson, Godsell, Seniff, Craig, Koontz, Spangler, Brittin, Peavler among others. Having grown up in LeRoy, McLean County, Illinois, I have many relatives buried in Oak Grove Cemetery and Gilmore Cemetery in McLean County; Walters, Rucker Chapel and Willmore Cemetery in DeWitt County, Illinois. I also have relatives in Piatt County,Illinois that I would love to find how to get some information about so I can complete my direct line of genealogy. Until I can get that information, I cannot complete my direct line. I welcome information on all families and am very happy to share information with others.

Sorry for the blank one.

Do you know who the parents of Marcus Peavler are? He is buried in Rucker Chapel Cemetery, in rural Wapella?

RE: Obituaries
Did Malassa Peavler marry Thomas Runyon in Dec. 1885? I found a marriage record for her in the state archives marriage index.
Her findagrave said she married a Sigler- I found a William Sigler in 1910-1930 census in Illinois census. It said in 1910-married 5-with three children; just one child listed.
Found a death record for Wm Sigler in d. i935 in Wilson Twp. DeWitt County. Says he was buried in Gilmore Cemetery; so I entered him in there- already 2 Wm. Siglers there but dates were different.

RE: Bessie M. O'Neal Brittin (1888-1970)
Thanks, Patricia. It's a branch of the family we know almost nothing about. I found a record of Lillian Brittin Everett's death in Kansas (Edgar Co.) in 1988; would you happen to know who Jessie Brittin married or what her children's names were? I tried to find all the O'Neal, Brittin, Crowe, Anderson, Borchers, Parker, and Ruck graves while I was in Gibson City and am slowly entering them. It was a really hot day though, and I probably missed a few (some smaller stones were dislodged, upside-down, etc., probably having been knocked around by the big lawnmower they use there).

Hi Patricia,

I've added a memorial and link for your grandfather's John M. Godsell's second wife (and my wife's great-great aunt), Bessie M. O'Neal Brittin (1888-1970).

Best wishes, Don

Melbourne Johns
Some info on parents of Mary Ann Johns Knight (ID 43443817) and Melbourne Johns (ID 38603012), which my Dad had gleaned from military records. Their father had served with Ohio infantry in the Civil War. I haven't found out where they are buried or I would create an article for them myself: William H. John, born Oct 2, 1847, Wayne County, Ohio. Married Clarice McFarlin on Oct 1, 1870, in Green Valley, Tazewell County, Illinois. Later moved to LeRoy in McLean County. Names and birthdates of children: Mary (Aug 28, 1871); Lauretta (Dec 4, 1872); Melbourne (Nov 18, 1874); Alice (Dec 27, 1880); Lena (Nov 2, 1882); Reuben (Sep 16, 1887); Fred (Dec 12, 1890). Mary Ann Johns Knight was my great-grandmother on my Mom's Mom's side.
