I am looking for the Joseph and Cynthia Limb branch.

I started off knowing only of 2 of their children since both married into my Harpel kin but thanks to Census records, I learned of Luda's and Josephine's siblings and parents. Of course, I'm stuck yet again since I do not live in Illinois nor in Kansas. So here is what I know. :)

I just now found a listing for Joseph in 1850 in Ellington, Adams Co., IL at age 18 tho I couldn't get the image at this time.

In 1860, Joseph was still in Ellington and married with children. Cynthia was born in Ohio about 1830. Children are Lane (4), James (3), and Luda (7/12).

In 1870, I couldn't read the Census taker's writing for the town but he was still in Adam's County. Joseph had more children. Lane (14), James (13), Luda (10), Hannah (8), David (7), L *can't read the name* (dau) (4), and Josephine (1).

In 1880, these Limbs moved to Pawnee, Pawnee Co., KS.
Joseph (49), Cynthia (50), Luda (20), David (16), L-dau (14), Josephine (11), and John (7). All of the children were born in IL.

Then in 1900, Joseph is seen on the Washington Twp., De Kalb Co., MO census living with Thomas Warrall b. England in Nov 1827, immigrated in 1840 and married to Sallie Warral b. England in Dec 1826, immigrated in 1838. Joseph was born in 1832, listed as Brother-in-law, and also immigrated in 1838.

Luda Limb - 4 Feb 1860 to 24 Oct 1939 married on 5 Sept 1886 in Larneed, KS to Philip Roderick Harpel 1 April 1842 to 14 Dec 1925 They are my 2nd Great Grandparents and lived in Pueblo, CO and had 4 children.

Josephine Limb - 30 July 1869 to abt 9 Feb 1936 married Oscar Philp Haprel 3 Aug 1871 to 16 Jan 1957. They lived in Pueblo, CO and had 3 children.
