I am researching the West family from Illinois. William West has lived in the Shelby and Moultrie Counties of Illinois.He married Myrtle Ivory Webb in 1906 and they had three daughters: Mary Ann, Dorothy Elizabeth and Letha Carol and five sons:Ancel A., Carl O., Charles W., James L. and Venneth. William died in 1943 in Edgar County, Illinois.
In addition, I'm researching the John Martin Ruff family of Strasburg, Illinois (originally from Hocking County, Ohio).He was born in Germany around 10 December 1813 and came to the United States as an 18 year old in about 1830. He married Anna Barbara Weidner in the 1836 and they eventually had three daughters, Christine, Kathryn, and Phoebe C., plus six sons, John, Frederick, George, William M., Solomon and Tobias
As well as the above names, I am also looking into the Cox family.In particular, I am looking into Loren Dale Cox, son of Everett and Bessie Gertrude (Doty) Cox.
Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have
