Classification: Query
Surnames: WHITE, JONES, WATSON, BARLOW, GLENN
I have a Henry White and Susannah Glenn who were parents to Henry White Jr, Nancy, Mary Polly who married Jeremiah Barlow ( or have seen it listed as Barger or possible Barbour?), Susannah who married Andrew Wolfe, and Elizabeth "Betsey" white who married James Jones in October of 1806 or 07 in Adair Co., KY.
Elizabeth was born in 1789 and after her marriage to James (who was a widower with children) they can be found in the early Tax records for Adair Co., KY in 1810. By 1818 this family is in early records for Johnson Co., IL and in 1820 the same place in the census.
Some of James and Betsey's children left the state of IL and went to Laclede Co., MO where there are still descendants today. There are a lot of descendants in and from the line that stayed in IL as well.
James Jones and first wife Matilda Watson had at least 3 known children that grew to maturity and 2 of them died in Johnson and Massac Counties in IL. James and second wife Betsey had about 12 children. It was 2 of their children along with an older brother that left and settled in MO. William Jones,a son, was most noted for his service in the Civil War.
I have a copy of the Will of Henry White SR which names his children and wife Susannah. I found this in Adair Co., Ky several years ago.
