I am researching my family tree and have hit a "brick wall" in my research so I'm trying every avenue I can think of to locate an ancestor of mine.
I am searching for any information on JOHN JELLINGS. I think he was born in Kingston Upon Hull on 09/02/1828. He left Hull around 1848 (maybe earlier, maybe later) and came to the US.
He first settled in LaGrange Co. Indiana and was married twice there -Ann CUTSFORTH & Sarah ROBSON (Both wives died.) I've had no luck finding information there as I was told that many La Grange Co. records for the time period he was there were destroyed by fire.
He first appears in Wisconsin in the 1870 census, although he was married in Harrisville, Marquette Co. Wisconsin on 04/01/1861 to Elizabeth Westlake. On that marriage certificate he listed his parents names as JAMES JILLINGS and MARY (no last name).
I have no names of siblings, although I believe he had at least a brother and a sister.
If anyone has any information on the names JELLINGS/JILLINGS/CUTSFORTH/ROBSON, I'd love to hear from you!
