Hugh CARR (b ca 1828 KY) and Matilda Smith (Mayfield?) (b ca 1826), married abt 1843, probably in KY. They had children Eliza, Matison (Matt), John M Ellet (John M E), Almeda, Samuel Hugh, and Martha (Patsy) CARR, some born in KY, some born in Union Co IL. The family is in KY in 1850 and 1870, and in Union Co IL in 1860 and probably 1880. Hugh CARR dies
abt 1871-1873, and widow Matilda (Tilda) marries again to Michael PEELER in Union Co IL on 11 Feb 1882. Son John M E married Adeline JORDAN on 11 Jun 1880 in Alexander or Union Co IL. John dies, or they divorce, because Adeline is married to Frank CARTER by the 1900 Alexander Co IL census.
Daughter Martha "Patsy" CARR marries Levi Jordan in Union Co IL on 22 Feb 1882. Can provide a lot of KY info to any descendants of this line in the Union Co IL area.

Who were the parents of the Levi Jordan who married Martha "Patsy" CARR in Union Co. IL on 22 Feb 1882. Patsy's mother, Adeline JORDAN, fathers name was also Levi JORDAN. Curious about the connection between the two. My JORDAN connection is through Adeline's uncle (Levi's brother) Soleman JORDAN.

Levi Jordan's parents are shown as John Jordan and Mary Yost on his marriage certificate to Martha "Patsy" Kerr (Carr/Karr) on 2/22/1882 in Union Co IL. The certificate also shows Levi born in Rowan Co NC, and age 45 at the marriage, his second marriage.

There's a really good web page on the Jordans done by davidlisa@www.cntwk.net with web address http://www.my-ged.com/db/page/hendersn/15

Peeler Inquiry

Re inquiry on Ellen Peeler (Union County Illinois).

My grandmother was Oma Peeler Moore who was born in the 1870s at a place called West Eden Illinois in Johnson County. Cypress is in Johnson County not Union.

Oma's parents were Jacob Calvin Peeler and Nancy Evers Peeler. I believe Jacob Calvin and his parents moved to Illinois from North Carolina where Jacob Calvin was born in the 1840s.

Oma married John William Moore and moved to Anna in Union County Illinois wher she lived until the 1950s. She died in Indianapolis Indiana in 1960 or 1961. For those familiar with Anna, she ran "Mrs. Moore's Flower Shop and Greenhouse"
from 1929 until the late 1950s.

I would not be surprised if your Ellen Peeler's grave were to be found in the West Eden Cemetery, near Cypress in Johnson County Illinois. This cemetery has been very well kept and most of the stones are quite readable. Jacob Calvin Peeler, Nancy Peeler, many of their children and a couple of other Peeler lines are all buried there.

The small Methodist Church at West Eden has a "roll of honor" of veterans from WWI and WWII. These lists are filled with Peelers!

Hope this information helps!

My husband's grandmother was Essie Peeler. She was born a Peeler, then married a Bost and then after his death married I believe it was an Owen Bost.

I remember Oma Moore's greenhouse very well. We lived on south street and when my brother graduated from high school in 1940 he went to her florist shop and she made him a corsage for his date for the prom. I was younger and we used to go to the high school and watch them come to the prom. I always thought I would do that some day but we moved in 1943 and I never did go to the prom in Anna.
Jacob Calvin Peeler was a son of Abraham and Amy Poole Peeler. Abraham came to Johnson Co. around 1840 as you said. He was a brother of my gr gr grandfather, John Peeler, who came to Johnson Co a little later.Olive Wilhelm
