I am researching my Barclay line and am looking for information about Sylvester Peasley who married Susan Crosby (nee Barclay - she was married twice).I have census records from 1860 in McLean Co., IL that show her living with her children as head of household near her Barclay family and a Peasley family. Then in 1880 she is listed with Sylvester Peasley and one of her children from her first marriage and children from his first marriage (I believe his first wife was Mary Stillman).That is where I lose her.I find a Sylvester Peasley living in IA with another wife Betsy in the 1920 census, age 80 but don't know if this is the same Peasley as birthdates are wrong.Below is what I have.
