Sorry you were bored with my Plummer Expedition treatise. (-:
No, Simeon was not part of the 1817 Plummer group, and that is stated in the essay and in his notes. However, his wife Elizabeth Milliken was the daughter to one of the Plummer Expedition folks, Elias Milliken. Elias' other children migrated with him. One married my wife's Heustis 4G-aunts.
Joseph's move to Bureau County was in the company of Runnels family members who were also in the 1817 migration. Joseph's brother Rollin married Mary True Runnels, who is in Bureau County in 1850 as Mary Tozier. Sister Almira married David Runnels in Dearborn County and he is also in Bureau County in 1850, although Almira has passed, and he has married Sarah Clark.
Many of the "Plummer families" married into the Clark(e)s from Rhode Island, and some of that family moved to Illinois at the same time.There are links to my wife's Heustis relatives in Henry, Marshall County; Peoria County; and Bureau County as well. I found it interesting how the families migrated together and maintained relationships. The Albees obviously did the same.The Toziers in Lake County, Indiana were a revelation for me, as I didn't have any previous movement in that direction from Dearborn County.
Thanks for the interesting family history in the note above. Waldo's place of birth changed with every Census seemingly.
I wonder why the IL Secretary of State database shows Emilene and Joseph marrying in Peoria in 1851? I have their four children from later Census records: Franklin, Joseph, Della and Flora. I also assume that the Benjamin Tosier living with "James Tozier" and the Albees in 1850, and the Albees in 1860, is Eliza and Joseph's son.
So is that Simeon in Pottawattamie County, Iowa in 1850, with Waldo? (-:
