James Miller Redfern (1830-1881) parents and grandparents search

Searching for James Miller Redfern's parents and grandparents. James Miller was born in Macoupin County, IL and died in Labette, KS. James Miller married Eliza Jane Minnis in 1857 in Illinois.

Some records indicate John Redfern (1797-1864) and Matilda Miller (1808-1850). It is unclear to me if John Redfern is from North Carolina or South Carolina?

John Redfern's parents are also unclear and hard to muddle through. Any info is appreciated!!

The grandfather of James Miller Redfern was Solomon Redfern, who was born circa 1765 supposedly in NC . He married Mary Elizabeth Johns , apparently in Macoupin Co. She was born there in 1777 and later died there. They had several children, including Solomon Jr., Eli, and John.

Son JOhn was James' father. . He was born 1797, supposedly in Chesterfield Co., S.C. , His wife (supposedly) was Polly Richardson, who he married ca 1829. Also, his wife was Matilda Miller. Possibly Polly was James mother, with Matilda having died about 1850.

These people rarely were on census", so the years might not be perfect. Bob Eddings.
