I have to quit leaving messages at 3AM. My brain wasn't working last night. Matilda was b. about 1829 in NC, perhaps Iredell Co. Her fam. came to IL in 1839. The only children I know of for Matilda and John Starr were 3 girls - Martha Ella, Mary, and Laura who died at age 17. Ella mrd a Johnson, and Mary (Mollie) mrd a Watson. I'll check a few census reports to see if others my aunt hadn't heard of. Most of Matilda's sisters are buried in Clear Springs Cemetery outside of Hillsboro, Ill. by Litchfield. There's a person (I'll look up her name/#) who has list of everybody buried there.I thought I saw a Starr stone or 2 when I went there end of May.I go to Mont. County a few times a year for research. I'll be back there again in a couple weeks. Are you in Illinois? What do you have on Matilda?How does she figure in your line? You can Email me at FamilyJan1@AOL.com.
