Does anyone know anything about Rudolph Stinson and Ida Mae Watson? They are my gggrandparents, married in abt.1888, I think in Clark Co. IL. I had evidence putting Rudolph as a decendant of Aaron Stinson (Aaron Jr, then George was father to a Rudolph b.1848), and having gone to Clark Co. IL from Madison Co. IN in about 1865, then I found conflicting evidence stating that my Rudolph was born 1869, so I thought I either had the wrong line, or at least the wrong connection to it, but then I received a letter from my Rudolph's granddaughter, and she said he was born in 1848 and died in 1921.
I just learned Ida Mae's maiden name, and she was born in 1870 in IL and died in 1945 in IL. I will be happy to discuss my evidence, I just did not want to turn this post into a book. The evidence so far has come from the following sources:
History of Clark County pub.1883 census fr. Madison Co. Indiana for 1850, 1860 and 1870 census fr. Clark Co. Illinois for 1880, 1910 and 1920 a letter fr. one of Rudolph's grandaughters
Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated-----------Thank-you
