If dates are correct, Ignatius could not have married Elizabeth ANDERSON. She was born 1782 and he was born 1809, I have a marriage date for them of 1814. However, there is another Ignatius who is older that could be her husband.
I have Ignatius who married Elizabeth MURDEN Oct. 28, 1836 [born Jan. 26, 1814 d. Feb. 5, 1856 ILL.] with these children: Agnus b. 1838; Martha 1839; Aaron b. 1841; James Harvey b. 1843; Jasper b. 1845; Mary Telephis b. 1847; Clara b. 1848; Elizabeth b. 1850; Eletha [Letha] b. 1852 and Nancy b. 1854. This is the daughter my grand daughter descends from.
His other marriage was to Elizabeth CARTER in Nov. 3, 1856 and her children are; William b. 1858; Sarah b. 1859; Henry H. b. 1862 and John Logan b. 1864.
Ignatius was in the Civil War, enlisted 29 Feb. 1864 from ILL. His father was Michael O'Daniel b. [1780 Maryland] and mother Elizabeth. They were married 1800 in Tenn. If this is correct then they moved to Alabama before Ignatius was born. I have James b. 1801 TN, John b. 1803 TN; Nancy B. b. 1806 TN; Ignatius 1809 AL; Aaron b. 1810 AL.
I am trying to locate Elizabeth Murden's parents. Have a possible of John or William. Either could be father or brother, as both sold land [Federal Sale] in Illinoi in 1837, 1848 [John] and William sold land in 1849 twice [Federal Sales].
I have found a O'Daniel website which lists William O'Daniel b. late 1690's, his son's William, James, John, and their children. But none of them mention son Michael. However, there is another generation which might be accounted for but not listed on some of their sons. William was born in Virginia. At one time wasn't Virginia and Maryland part of the same area?
