My father, A.R.Atherton, was born 1879 Fulton Co., IL to John Atherton, born 1853, married 1876 in Fulton Co. to Mary Wise, whose parents immigrated from Germany. A.R.Atherton was the oldest son and Clarence Atherton the youngest son of 6 who survived infancy. My research found Reuben Ross Atherton to be the father of John and Jane McClure Hilton, the mother. Anyone close enough might look in Ipava Cemetery, Sec.6, Pleasant Twp., Illinois. Please share info if you find any.
