Hello to all Kingery researchers. I'm writing in hope that someone will point me in the right direction to find my Kingery family lines.
Here is the information I have: My Great Great Grandfather, Samuel Kingery was born in Ohio around 1823. He eventually came to Coles County, Illinois. There Samuel marrried Mary Elizabeth Rice, August 30, 1853. They appear in Douglas County, Illinois in the 1860 Federal Census. Samuel Kingery is 36, Mary 25. They have children Melvina 6, William 4, and Amanda 2. The family lived in Township 16N, Range 7 East, of Douglas County, Illinois.
We know Samuel Kingery passed away in St. Louis, Missouri, Decemember 25, 1861.
By the 1880 Federal Census, Mary E. Kingery is now 44, living alone in Garrett Township of Douglas County.
My Great Grandmother, Melvina Kingery married Joseph White Smith, November 14, 1875 in Tuscola, Douglas County, Illinois. Great Grandma Melvina lived until 1914, Great Grandpa Smith lived until 1919.
I haven't any information on William Kingery at this time.
Amanda S. Kingery married Thomas J. Burtner, December 08, 1878 in Douglas County, Illinois. Mary D. Kingery born 1860, married James A. Lindsay, October 20, 1879 also in Douglas County, Illinois.
So my questions are, who are Samuel's parents and who are his siblings? Any information will be appreciated.
