Looking for info. on John & Mary NICHOLS who were married 19 May 1839 in Madison Co., IL. Mary (born abt. 1822) was the daughter of Martin B. and Susanna SCARLET CHANDLER. John (born abt. 1817) & Mary or "Polly" were living in Fosterburg, Madison Co., IL in 1850. Their children were: Edward, Ally or Alice, Sarah, Medora, John, Ransom, Mary & Martha. In 1860 they were in Lincoln Twp, Logan Co. By 1870, Mary might have died, because the census lists only John living with some of his kids in Turnbridge Twp, DeWitt Co, IL. The census indicates that Alice may have married George Hammaker (Homaker) and Madora may have married a Hammond.
Where are John and Mary NICHOLS and their children buried? Who did the children marry? Where are they in 1880?
Who are John's parents? Is John the brother of Thomas NICHOLS who married Rachael DECK 10 Nov 1839 in Madison Co., IL?
Any help greatly appreciated.
