Re: Rednour/Ball in TN, KY, IL
My grandfather fits in here somewhere.He was Thomas Rednour (born in Green Co. TN, dod 12/23/1903 in IL) married Lura Bell or Ball Jackson (born in IL, dod 1/11/1917) in Steeleville IL Sept. 1878.They had 9 children, 2 girls, Lela May (my mother) and Lula Bell. 7 boys, John, Ralph, Theodore, Matthew, Thomas, Walter, and Nelson.I don't know who my great grandfather was.
I spoke to a Rednour in S. IL a few weeks ago and he gave me some names and dates, but I don't know how they all fit.He is supposed to send me the info and documentation.Hope he does.
Here is what he gave me.
Nicholas Ritinour, Ritnaur Switzerland
Johanan Ritenou, Tiffin France 1690
Johanan Titinaour Jr. 1718
John Ritenour NC 1752
Nicolas Ritnour married Elizzbeth Jefferin in NC 1810
Grandfather-John Martin Rednour 1805 Green Co. TN
Lazarus Rednour 1828 married Marina Moore
Hope this makes some sense.
He said the family split over the Civil War and 5 of the brothers moved north to Ky and IL.
