Re: Winters in Ohio & Ill
I am looking for parents of William Harrison WINTERS, who was born abt 1848 in OHIO. He married Alpha Jane CLAYTON on Nov 16, 1871 in Morgan Co., IL.
They are in the 1880 census of Virden, Macoupin co., IL with daughters Georgeann age 8, Mary E. age 6, Myrtle age 4 and Mamie age 1.Mamie's name should be Minnie.
William was not in the 1900 census, and Alpha said she was a widow. Enumerated with Alpha in the 1900 census of Virden are her daughters Minnie born Aug 1878, Ethel E. born March 1887, and son-in-law John O'Neil? and his wife Myrtle born Aug 1876 and their child Mary E. O'Neil age 1.Their last name is smudged, but looks like O'Neil.
Cemetery records from Franklin City Cemetery in Morgan Co., IL say that William H. WINTERS died in 1905. I believe this must be an error, since Alpha was a widow in 1900.
Alpha Jane CLAYTON was born in FEB of 1848 to Francis and Phoebe CLAYTON. She died in 1923, and is also buried in Franklin City Cemetery in Morgan Co., IL.
I have not been able to find William in any census except for the 1880 one.I could really use some help finding him with his parents!Email me at: email@example.com Thanks!
