I am seeking information on Cornelius Clayton Pettet b. 18 Sep 1824.

He married Susan Ann Applegate Branson (b. 6 Mar 1838/1841) after the death of her first husband Willam Branson (b. 1830 d. 1860) in New Jersey.
Cornelius and Susan came to Illinois between 1867 ( the birth of daughter Amelia Pettet in New Jersey) and 22 Dec 1869 ( the birth of son Jacob Pettet in Piatt Co. Illinois).
I have not been able to find a marriage record in New Jersey.
I am trying to figure out how they got together and what caused them to come to Illinois and where they may have stopped along the way.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
