John Kingery,son of Samuel and Catherine Spong Kingery, born 1821 in Madison County, Ohio, died in 1860 at age of 39. Family on 1860 census, Cumberland County, Illinois: John, Nancy, Sophronia Jones-age 13, and Neoma Kingery-age 11. This is the last record found of this family. John passed away in 1860, and Nancy & Sophronia vanished.
Neoma (my gggrandmother) apparently went to live with Jonathan and Amanda Kingery Ellison, John's sister's family, and took the last name Ellison. She later married 1st cousin, Willet Kingery.
What happened to John, Nancy, and Sophronia? Did all three die in 1860, and if so, where are they buried? Who was Sophronia? Any information on this family would be appreciated.
