George/John, ca1810-80, NC/IL
Would like any info on either George or John McGuire of Buncombe Co., NC, or Jefferson/Marion cos., IL. My ggg grandmother was Mary Poston (1806-1867), wife of William Poston; she reputedly was a McGuire before their marriage (ca1825?). They moved from Buncombe Co. to Jefferson-Marion line ca1829/30. I suspect her father was GEORGE McGUIRE (who was in contemporary censuses, those states/counties) and her brother was JOHN McGUIRE (1840-80 Jeff. Co. censuses). Anything on Buncombe NC or Jefferson-Marion IL McGUIREs greatly appreciated.
