Finally able to post. (forgot my password) I am descended from James McIlrath & Cynthia Wallace McIlrath through their daughter Sarah Elizabeth.
Have quite a bit of material and photos of: James McIlrath Cynthia McIlrath and John Claypool Sarah E. McIlrath and James Steward Sylvester Mcilrath (son of James) James Richie McIlrath (son of James)
Also discovered Cynthia's lineage (Wallace)along with burial sites of and photos of stones for: James & Cynthia McIlrath in Greenmoss Cemetery in Clarksville, Il John and Cynthia Claypool also in Greenmoss (no stone) Joseph And Cynthia Wallace on their farmsted.
Copies of James McIlrath civil war military service and pension file (rather thick) lineage back to Matthew Wallace(mid 1600's) Census records for Joseph Wallace (and Cynthia) in Shelby county, IN then in Clark co. IL Gravestone and court records (probate) for John McIlrath and his wife Rachael McIlrath.(not scanned yet)
rather stumpted from John who came from County Kerry Ireland in the early 1800's to PA then moved to Shelby County, IN where he got Typhoid Fever and died in the 1820'sthen in 1837 Rachael died leaving several children.
Girls ended up in Des Moines Iowa area and Robert and James moved to Clark Co. ILWilliam I believe moved to Mo. but haven't found him there yet.
My mother also has John Richie McIlrath's Bible with geneology lineage listed for Wallace, McIlrath and other branches of my family.
Probably much more than I can think of right now.I will make copies for you and other cousins, if so desired.
It will take some time as I have quite a bit of stuff.
I went to county Kerry last summer: no McIlrath's listed in phone books or geneology records????
