Am hoping that since 1999 you have had some fortune in finding family information and that you may help me solve some mystery or I may have some new leads for you. I am very interested in your Weaver - Applegate history.
I have Weaver - Yoakum history of which the a daughter Nancy Yoakum married Gilber Mackey, but Gilbert's sister Elizabeth married a Joseph Applegate and one of their ?? daughters in a census is listed as a Weaver.Sound confusing.. sorry it kind of is.
But any way.. John Yoakum and Rachel Weaver, along with Gilbert Mackey and Nancy Yoakum (John and Rachel's daughter) were all living in Montgomery County, Illinois at least in 1830.some time later they moved to Missouri and there are Applegates there as well who are part of this picture.
Do you know if your William was related to any of the following Applegates: Joseph, Jacob Henry, Daniel, Bartholomew or Thomas?
