It is reported that Richard died in 1837 in Montgomery Co., Ellender died before him also in Montgomery Co. IL.
Does anyone have information on this family?
They would have been one of the first settlers in the area.
Appreciate any information.

The house in which the church was organized belongs to Elisha Freeman and stood in the southeast part of that township.

I am looking for my great-great grandparents, and I'm wondering if they could be either: (1) Mary Anna and Edward Beck, or (2) Lucinda and William Beck.

My great-grandfather was James Marshall Beck. He was born 22 Dec 1883 in Litchfield, Montgomery County, Illinois. He died June of 1959 in Elko County, Nevada.

Does anyone know?
