Do you have any info on your Elias J. Fenton, siblings or where born? I have a Philo S. Fenton that lived in Macon Co., Illinois, but married a girl in Janesville in 1871. I believe, he had to be visiting relatives at some time to have met her. Philo was a school teacher in Decatur, IL at the time. Philo's father was a James C. Fenton born 1814/15 in NYC. James C. is my brick wall.
