I am on a hunt. My great Grandfather James Henry Brown, died in May 8, 1903, in Oregon City, Oregon, Clackamas County. He was born June 6, 1844 in McDonough County, Illinois. According to the information we have. He was put into the home of J.W.and Lucy Gibson to raise, by his mother, when he was just 2 years of age. We were told it was because his father had died. When James was 9 years of age he ran away and hooked up with the Samuel and Elizabeth(Gibson)Ritchey family. James helped herd cattle to Oregon. When James died in 1903, besides being survived by his wife and children, he was survived by a sister Mrs. Rachel Burrows and Mrs.Chloe of Joetta, Illinois.
What I am looking for is a bit of help in locating a 1900 census of Hancock County. Can someone do a look up for me? Thanks, Rusty Brown
