Re: Thomas J. Bilyeu
In the history sheets of Christian county in Illinois, there is reference to the oldest son of John S. Bilyeu, a John H.J. who lived in Kansas.The same John H.J. sold his farm to his brother Josiah around 1900.Census records of 1880 show a Clarissa (1/2) and records of 1900 show a Eugene (16) as members of the family of John H.J. and Ida (Tilley) Bilyeu.If this is the correct line, Eugene (1883-1963), would be Thomas J. Bilyeu's older brother.
