Tozer in Menard & other counties--1817-1921 range
1. David Tozer died Sept. 13, 1864 and is buried at Farmers Point in Menard County, IL. I am interested in him and wife Rebecca A. (died 1889) because the Census shows they were in NJ until about 1840. Rebecca's maiden name may be Dickson, Dickeson or Dickinson. My Wm. Tozer 1804-88 married Hannah Dickinson, so MAYBE he and David are brothers who md. sisters.
2. John H. Tozier and Anna A. Nolting married 11/24/1887. He appears to be from NJ also; does he relate to David? A death cert for Tozier, John Howard said he died 1 Jun 1921 at age 66.
3. There were three Tozers getting some kind of land grant in other Illinois counties, as early as 1817-18. Did they also have NJ or Philadelphia origins, and how did they merit the land?
