I have a Peter McQuire (possibly Peter McGuire) b. abt 1834 NY married to Elizabeth Smelser (Smeltzer) b. abt 1832 Hart County, KY. They were married in Illinois in 1858 and are living in Floyd Township, Warren County, Illinois during the 1860 federal census. It appears that they have one child, seemingly a William McQuire or McGuire age 1, born about 1859 IL. Also living with the family is James Smelser b. abt 1839, brother of Elizabeth Smelser. And that's about all I have at the moment on this family group of Peter and Elizabeth. Elizabeth is living at home with parents in Knox County, Galesburg, Illinois during the 1850 federal census. Any ideas?
