Re: Nathaniel Worden III, 3rd Generation
Hello! Hope you are still online!! I THINK I have figured it out-knock on wood!!
Silas and Jane had a son named Smith Adelbert.He went to live with the John Jefferson Bell family in Menard Co.,Illinois as a youngster-I don't know why.Then the Bells and S.Adelbert moved to BENTON COUNTY MO.
Silas' brother was Solomon Worden who married Betsey Unknown.They had a daughter named Sarah Jane born in 1837.I believe Sarah Jane was the same person as the one I've been calling Julia,or else Sarah Jane's sister Juliet was my Julia.Still haven't worked this out.Anyhow, "Julia" married in LaSalle Co.,Illinois in 1864,and later lived in BENTON COUNTY MO. So if I'm right Smith Adelbert and my "Julia" were first cousins. My "Julia" named a son Adelbert. Smith Adelbert ,( Menard Co.,Illinois to Benton County Mo.),died in abt 1890 in the Mo.State Pen.Julia my ggrandmother(LaSalle Co.,Illinois to BENTON COUNTY,MO.) died in Benton Co.,Mo. in 1886. Julia's son Adelbert (Elias Adelbert) was known as Del Burns-my grandfather.Does this sound about right to you????? Pat
