Re: William Waples m/1Rebecca m/2 Mary Ann in Ohio family?
I am researching William Waples born in Ohio and who had a first wife named Rebecca. She too was from Ohio in the 1850 census.
William Waples ran a drug store in Homer Illinois (Champaign County), coming to Illinois in the late 1840's. Children: Elizabeth and Alice are in the 1850 census. Three year old Martha died in an epidemic on January 30, 1849, daughter of William and Rebecca. She is buried in the Old Homer Cemetery north of the village of Homer.
I know he remarried but I cannot find her name at this time. I will find more for you.
