In 1853 a James Conner who already owned two tracts of land in Fayette Co. Il received a free land grant of 40 acres in Fayette Co. It was a military grant. I am looking for more information on this James Conner. Where did he come from, when was he born, etc. I have a James Conner who was born in 1787-1794 time period in VA who served in the War of 1812 and would have been eligable for a 40 acre land grant. The James born in VA lived in Cumberland Co. KY with his family until he returned from the War of 1812 and he disappeared after that. We do know that he allegedly died in IL. James had a sister "Betsy" that married Benjamin Wilson in 1805. We think that James Conner and Benjamin Wilson may have come to Fayette Co. IL. Any help on either of these will be appreciated.

Does anyone have information on a Dr. George A. Martin. As he was a doctor in a rural area, perhaps he is listed in a history of Fayette County, Brownstown or Vandalia,Illinois. I'm searching the Martin family. Dr. George A. Martin (b. Jun 1867, d. unknown)was a physician in Fayette County at least until 1901, when his son Delmar I. Martin was born (May 29, 1901). In the 1900 census, he & his wife, Ella J. Dillingham, had two children, Jesse born Sept. 1897 and Paul born April 1896. Also, living with them was a 22 year old dauhter, Mary B. from an earlier marrage. In the 1880 census, George is listed as married to a J.E. Martin with dauhter Mary and another dauhter w/ initials M.H.
Any info. or advice on where to search for George will be appreciated.
