Looking for information on William and Matilda Bright of Cumberland County Illinois.
In 1860, they were in the Prairie City precinct, listed as W. Bright, age 25, born in Illinois;Matilda, age 20, born in Indiana and a two year boy, Anderson. In the preceding household was the family of E[lizabeth] Branson who may have been Matilda?s mother.In the following household was H. Bright , age 28, born Illinois and his wife Nancy, age 20, born in Indiana.
In the 1870 census, William and Matilda were listed in Greenup in Cumberland County. William was listed as 40, born Illinois and ?works on rr?. Matilda was listed as age 26, born Indiana. Children were Andrew, age 11; George , age 9, Lorenzo D., age 7 and Elkand, age 5.
A Henson Bright and wife Nancy E. were listed a few pages away who I think was the H. Henson in the 1860 census. A Kane Bright, age 50, was living in the Woodbury area in 1860. I have not been able to establish any relationships between these Bright families.
William and Matilda do not show up in the 1880 census but their children were in various households in Shelby Cumberland and Effingham Counties which leads me to be believe that William and Matilda died in the period 1870 ? 1880.
Any information about William and Matilda or their children will be appreciated.
