I'm searching for information about Mary N. Loomis who married John J. Hicok in Hancock Co, IL, on June 15, 1843. My second great grandfather, WILLIAM LOOMIS, may have had a sister named Mary. They were born in N.Y. and emigrated to Hancock Co, I believe. After William's wife, Elvira Van Tassel Loomis, died in May of 1850, a Mary, born in NY, was listed in the household. She probably was there to care for William's small children. Do you have any information concerning Mary? I'm hoping this will help me trace William's ancestry. Thanks so much for any help you can provide.
