I am the G-granddaughter of the John Jellings mentioned in the above obituary.

He was born in England and came to the US about 1848 settling in Indiana first then appearing in Marquette Co. around 1861 and Columbia Co. around 1875.

I can find very little information about John Jellings and have always wondered if perhaps the spelling of his name was changed when he came to the US?

Any information you may have would be appreciated.

I have very little information on the John Jellings that you mention in the obituary.

Do you have any more information on him? The other names I have posted are the surnames of his wives.

He died in Columbia Co., but previously lived in Marquette Co. Before that he was in LaGrange Co., IN.

That's about all I know about him except that he was born in 1828 somewhere in England.

I'm trying to find Jillings... and the census in England misspelled it to Jellings and Gellings...
Have you found a connection to Jillings? My gggrandmother was Elizabeth Jillings, married to Thomas Henry Appleby and moved to Texas. I live in Wisconsin.

I have no record of an Elizabeth Jillings in my family line. I have found the surname spelled several ways: Jellings, Jillings, Gellings and Gillings.

John Jellings has been my brick wall for years. I can't seem to find proof of his parents or even his exact place of birth.

Greetings.
I believe someone emailed that Jellings is a mistake on the census in England. Certainly, I've run into plenty of typos in other lines I'm following.
Jillings is the way my ggrandmother spelled her name...

I'm curious about your John Jellings. Where is he from and when?

I have very little information on him. He was born in England (I am not sure where) Sept. 2, 1828 and came to the US about 1848 settling in Indiana first then appearing in Marquette Co. around 1861 and Columbia Co. around 1875.

He married Elizabeth Westlake in Marquette Co. Wisconsin on April 1, 1861. They had two sons, Charles Henry (1862)and William Sumner (1868). He died in Poynette, Wisconsin on Aug. 1, 1916.

His parents were listed as James and Mary Jillings on his marriage record.

These are interesting facts.

Eliz Jillings is a great grandmother who came in about 1884 to Texas. I may have the year a little off.
It would be interesting if they were related.

I'm in Wisconsin. Tonight the windchill is supposed to be
-35 F. That doesn't last long, and lets us use some of our winter clothing, I guess.
