This post is in response to information I found in the Archive of this Forum about Abraham Pease Sangamon Co, IL by Rick Bart.
Allow me to introduce myself.
My name is David Jackson.I live in central Illinois and am descended
from the Abram (Abraham) Pease that you have mentioned in the email
below that I found on Rootsweb yesterday.My line is Abram (Abraham)
Pease, Shaw Pease, Leslie Pease, Clarence Pease, William Handy Pease, Ruth
Ann (Pease) Jackson.I am also related to Mary Albert and Stephanie
Lynge who have inquired about this line of the Pease family in the past.
I don't know, but you probably have, if you have seen the following file before (http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/ny/seneca/census/1810/pg0012.txt), but it could support your idea that our Abram is Abraham
and Sarah's (Dunham) son.I say this because it puts Abraham and
Sarah's family in Junius, NY in 1810.There is also a male that is between
16 and 25 yrs of age that could be my Abram (Abraham).
1810 - Abraham and Sarah (Dunham) Pease and family are recorded in
the Census for Junius, Seneca Co., NY
1811 - Abram (Abraham) Pease marries Orpha Southwick (dau. of Jesse
and Nancy (Moore) Southwick)
1812 - Abram (Abraham) Pease joins the militia in Cayuga Co., NY
(adjoins Seneca Co., NY on the east) to fight in the War of 1812
1818 - Abram (Abraham) and Orpha (Southwick) Pease arrive in Ball
Twp., Sangamon Co., IL
1819 Jesse and Nancy (Moore) Southwick arrive in Shawneetown, IL.
and end up in Woodside Twp., Sangamon Co., IL (adjoins Ball Twp. on the
1820 - Orpha (Southwick) Pease dies.
Based on these items, I think you may be correct in your idea.If so,
this is a great discovery for our side of the Pease line.Could you
direct me, or send me the information you have on the Abraham and Sarah
Thanks for your help!!!

I recently found some info on a Sherwood-Pease relationship. From
"Search Thingy" Family Search, and Ancestry, I am able to put this
According to the submitter in Rootsweb, (some of) the Sherwood info was
copied from "Biographical Record of Kane Co, IL 1898 by S.J. Clarke
Publishing Co.It mainly dealt with the son of John and Sarah (Pease),
Abraham P. Sherwood.I got other info from Family Search.

>From my unattached file:
Abram or Abraham Pease; b. Jul 22, 1791 on Martha's Vineyard; d. Sep
1843 in Sangamon Co, IL; m. (1) Aug 18, 1811 in New York, Orpha
b. 1794 in NY; d. Feb 22, 1820 in Sangamon Co. She was the daughter of
Southwick; b. 1758 near Lebanon, CT; d. Sep 1826, and Nancy Moore; b.
17, 1770 in CT. Jesse and Nancy moved to Oneida Co, NY where all four
their children died from the "cold plague". They removed to Junius, NY,
had seven children. At Olean, NY, they embarked on the Allegheny River,
arrived at Shawneetown, IL Dec 1819. By wagon, the family wound up in
Woodside Twp, Sangamon Co. Abram Pease moved to New York, was a soldier
the War of 1812, and removed to Ball Township, Sangamon County,
What are the chances, given the times and locations of the above, that
unattached Abram (Abraham) is the son of Abraham and Sarah (Dunham)
