Hi, Laura--

You're quite correct. Benjamin Factor, son of Benjamin Factor and Catherine Ashbaker was the one who married Margaret Mullen in Brown Co., IL. She was his second wife. First wife Margaret Morgan (1866-1887) is buried at the Catholic Cem. in Brown Co., along with their infant son. He married Margaret MULLEN two years later. I have 6 children listed for them. By the 1920 census they were living in Alton, Madison Co., IL. In 1930 they were living in Wood River Twp., Alton, IL next door to one of their daughters. My records indicate that Benjamin died on 16 March 1937 in McLean Co., IL. I don't have a death date for Maggie, but believe it was probably after 1950. Neither are buried in Brown Co., IL. I've been to Mt. Sterling many times to visit my grandmother and have spent the last 20 years researching the descendants of Patrick Mullen and Sarah Mattingly. Made some good finds, found 'cousins' and hit some brick walls along the way. It's been a wonderful journey so far.
