Ernest,

I am moving to a new house so do not have ready access to my records. The Lortons who descended from Rev. War Robert Lorton lived in Fayette County, Illinois (Made from Bond County) and then several moved on to Greene County, Illinois, including Rev. War Robert, sons Thomas, John, Robert, William, Joseph and daughter Mary. Those staying were Henry (my ancestor), Susannah, and Mordecai. Of course there was more than one William Lorton. Try this: Go to USGenWeb.com. Select Illinois. When you get to Illinois, select the Illinois IRAD archives database. All marriage records are listed. Maybe that will give you some clues. When I get to my information in about a week, I'll see what I can find for you. Do you know the wife's name? The one you mention born 1833 is about the fourth generation from Rev War Robert. Mine goes Rev War Robert, Henry, John Marion, and William Granville Lorton born 1850s or so.
