Seeking information relating to Mary Flin b. abt. 1838, who m. Jesse C. Thomas in Macoupin Co., IL, 23 Dec 1852. She is believed to have been an orphan at the time of her marriage. In searching the IL records from this time period, I found a Mary Flin listed with [one would assume] her parents, William & Edith Flin, on the 1850 Census for Macoupin Co., IL. They were living in what may have been a boarding house with about 15 people with various last names, no relationships or places of birth listed. Mary Flin Thomas married at 14, gave birth to her first child at 15, [child died or was still born], second child, Louisa Jane Thomas born 1855, third child, Nancy M. Thomas b. 1857. Mother, Mary Flin Thomas, died shortly after the birth of third child. Any info regarding the family of Mary Flin will be greatly appreciated.
