My grandfather was Abner Hamilton. His mother was Lucy Eliza Covey b 1861. She was the daughter of Abner V. Covey
m Margaret F. Carey. 1880 Census list them Maroa, Macon, Illinois. I have never seen Lucy connected with the Funk last name but that could be right. I did find her marriage to Francis Hamilton 7/5/1880 Macon Co. Illinois. Illinois Marriage Index.
I am trying to find out the parents of Francis Hamilton.
There are many Abner Covey's in this family line. There is also another Covey family with similar names. I haven't been on this family research for several months or I would of answered you sooner. I also changed my provider.Most of my information came from the Covey-L@roostweb.com
