Need lookup, 1878 court action involving BOWMAN, WALTERS/WATERS
In 1878, considerable legal action in Morgan Co., IL court centered on issues surrounding land claimed to have been transferred to Richard WALTERS in 1840. Information in the lawsuit involves children of Malinda WALTERS and William BOWMAN, to wit: John BOWMAN, George BOWMAN, Mitchell BOWMAN, Lydia BOWMAN, Frances BOWMAN, and Sarah BOWMAN married to John LANGWELL in 1844 in Pike Co., IL. Malinda WALTERS/WATERS' father was Robert (Old Robert) WALTERS, Sr., born 1751 in Prince George Co., VA, with wife, Frances (Frankey) UNKNOWN. I have lots of other info to share, if you are interested.
I know that researcher Kathryn Walters Hughes had transcribed this lawsuit before 2000, since Ruth Langwell Walker sent some information about it to me about that time, but none of these wonderful ladies--nor another researcher of that time--Nell Gronberg--have posted anything since then, and e-mails to them bounce back.
Can anyone in Morgan Co., IL, help me out or can any WALTERS/WATERS researcher supply me this information? I think it will topple my brick wall.
Kind regards and Peaceful Holidays,
Bonnie Bowman Henson
