I am trying to find descendants of a John McGuire (McGyer) (1813-1854) who married an Aletha Seale (widow of Soloman Seale) (1811-1864).John was killed working on the railroad near Dismal Creek in Effingham Co., Ill. They had several children: Rhoda b. 1831 md. Wm Gillmore Patsy b. 1834 Green Gillmore Matilda b.1835 Wm Reese Samantha b. 1837 George McElroy Angeline b. 1840 m. Mr. Gordon Elizabeth b.1841 m. George Gilmore John b. 1847 m. Mary Hickle
I know very little about this family and would like to exchange further information.Aletha's first husband may have died in Smith Co., TN prior to 1829.
