I am seeking information about my great, great grandparents J.J. (John Jay) and Christina (Neeley) Hathaway and their ancestors, especially on the Hathaway side. Particulars are: J.J. born c.1849 in Sandoval, Marion Co, IL, d. 15 Aug 1908 Murphysboro, Jackson Co, IL, m. Christina "Tina" Neeley born c.1854 OH, d. 14 Nov 1882, Warrensburg, Johnson Co, MO; two children, one of whom was my great grandfather.
I do not know when or where they met or were married, but were residing in Warrensburg, MO at least by 1875 and until she died in 1882.Upon her death J.J. returned to IL, remarried (Hattie) and started a second family (Ray, May, Robert, Dan, Pearl, Zulu, and Virgil).
I believe that J.J.'s (John's) parents were James Christopher (b. abt 1825 DeKalb Co TN)and Susan (b. abt 1827 DeKalb Co TN, maiden name unkn) Hathaway, and that his sibs were Richard b. abt 1851, Christian, b. abt 1854 and Polly b. abt 1860 all in IL.
Any information about, or confirmation of, this info would be greatly appreciated.
