My REASOR family lived in Mississippi County between 1850 and 1860 at least. William Reasor was listed in the 1850 census as age 27, married to Martha E.(Adams) Reasor, age 25. In the 1860 census he is listed as being married to Mary J.(Marshall) Reasor, a Scottish lass, age 30. I know my grandfather is descended from Martha E. Records I have found list his marriage to Mary J. Marshall on Jan 10, 1956. In the 1850 census, William's Mother, Dorothy Smith Reasor also lived with them. She may have died in Mississippi County also before 1860. William had two sons by Martha E. in ca. 1852 and 1853. They were William and Jeremiah. Martha must have died, but I have no record of her death. Can anyone find a grave or obituary for her? She was born in 1825. In 1860, William and Mary live in Ohio Township.
Thank-you. Beverly Rich

I am seeking information on my grandparents, Harry and Nettie Jane Lowery. I have very little information. They died shortly after my father, James Franklin Rodgers (7/31/1934 - 9/1991) was born in Bluffington. They had several children. My aunt, Della Payne, thinks they came from Harrisburg, IL. My father's aunt, Bessie Harmon, raised him, but I don't know if she was Harry's or Nettie's sister. Does anyone have any information on the Rodgers/Lowery/Harmon families?
