elias whitmarsh is listed on 1870 ill census index age 36 birth place canacounty ogle locality pine rock twp m593-roll 265 page 459. same census gave theresa age 40 and delmar age 11. i have been unable to find ogle county or pine rock twp. i am of the opinion elias was born in new york state, but have found no evidence to support that. i have gone through a lot of ship registries and whitmarsh ancestry came before records were very accurate so they were of no help. i have contracted with an gency in utah for help after coming to a dead end. i hope i have been of help to you in your search/ please keep me posted of future finds about elias.
