I just found this message board and was pleasantly suprised.
I've just started researching my family tree and have hit my first dead end. Here's what I have on these two: Joshua: birth unknown (possibly in VA), d. 1874 in Madison County, IL Martha Smith: birth unknown (possibly VA), remarried William Hohn, died in Collinsville (Madison County), IL, date unknown.
They were married in 1859 in St. Louis and had at least one child, Andrew "Jackson" Scaggs, b. 12/1872, died 1918.
