It's a neat letter and most of the names are correct (except for spelling as mentioned). However we know Churchwell Sr, was born in 1758 in Virginia. So they were in US before the Rev War. Also to my knowledge Churchwell, Jr, did not go to Illinois, he and Mary Ann Coffelt were married in Tennessee and lived there. Some of their children moved to IL, however, my direct ancestor Wilson went there for a very short time then to MO, TX, and ended up in OK where he participated in the Land Run of 1889, built the first hotel in Edmond, OK.
