Looking for information on Frederick G. (George?) Appleton. Frederick was born on 12 Feb 1825 in Pennsylvania, married L. Josephine Wilburn on 25 Oct 1856 in California, and died on 27 Dec 1892 in Hyde Park, Illinois. They lived in Aurora, Dearborn County, Illinois in 1880 (as listed on the 1880 US Federal Census). Frederick lists both his parents as having been born in England. I THINK, but cannot find proof, that Frederick's parents were Christopher Appleton and Elizabeth Hewetson. Does anyone know for sure, and if so, where can I find the proof?
I have information on the Appleton line from Frederick and L. Josephine on down that I can share. I am an Appleton and live in Texas, with most of my Appleton line coming from McCulloch County, Texas.
Please email me at Leslie.Appleton@park.edu if you can offer any insight, and thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
