I am trying to trace my family lines. Most of my relatives live in Peoria county. However I can only go back so far and hit a dead end so to speak. On the Moates line I have only gotten to my great grandparents, William and Rose Moates, they had at least two children that I know of, Arthur, my gr.father and his sister Bertha. Arthur was born in 1885 and d. in 1952. He married Margaret Forney in Pontiac IL. On the Forney line, I have traced that back to my great great grandmother, Margaret Colwell Forney, however there is no husband listed for her, I am decended through her son Horace who married Bertha Weaklam they had five children, Bertha,Margaret,Grace,Earl, and Esther. Margaret is my grandmother, she married Arthur Moates and they had four daughters, Bertha,Betty, Lois and Ruth who is my mother. Any help would be appreciated.
