researching Stephen Northrup/up who married a Caroline Bright in Griggsville, Pike Co., IL in early 1800. Caroline died in Griggsville, Pike Co., IL in 1865. I believe they had 6 children. Stephen then married a Sarah Jane McCuen Smith who had one daughter, I believe her name was Jesse. Stephen and Sarah had three sons, Ashley, Anson, and Arden.
I am also researching the Hiram Rader family. Hiram Rader and Rebecca Hankins daughter Lillie Jane Rader married Ashley Bentley Northup.
Also doing research on David Cook, I believe of either Valley City or Detroit.
Other Surnames: Hankins, Wilson, Dunniway, Ross, Hawley, Butcher.
