I am the daughter of the matriarch and eldest living relative of Larkin Rutherford (William Larkin Rutherford, Sr.) who was one of the five original American Settlers in what later became our great state of Illinois.  She was born  in Lebanon, Illinois (St. Clair County) July 5, 1913 and will celebrate her 91st birthday in a couple of weeks.  She married my father in Waterloo, Illinois January 14, 1932. She had no idea of her heritage or anything about her 3rd great grandfather until I started working on her genealogy.   I new he settled in Bellefontaine and lost his first  three wives, Nancy Ogle, Margaret Peggy Hamilton, and Marianne Davis there.  Have no idea where they were buried.  He removed to Shiloh some time after an altercation with Rev. James Lemon 1809 and joined with his former father-in-law, Joseph Ogle in the formation of the Shiloh Methodist Church.  His children and their offspring located in Ridge Prairie.  Most of the family is buried in the Shiloh Cemetery and College Hill Cemetery in Lebanon.  There are still Rutherford kin residing in Lebanon, Illinois who are offspring of Larkins line.  I have heard that Larkin's Name is on a plaque in the City Hall and I have been wondering if this is true.

I am looking for information on
Margaret Schmidt came to Monroe County from Germany about 1881 with her
three children Maggie, Katie, and Casper.  Her brother, who owned a farm
supposedly  payed their passage to America.  I think his last name was
HERBST.  Within five years Margaret Schmidt had died (1886).  She died
in the home of Peter FRIERDICH.  The children were separated.  Maggie
Schmidt supposedly went to live with a FRANK family, who were relatives.
She was marred in 1888 to William CROWDER.  Within two years she was a
widow (with two children)  and I think moved from the area.  From death
certificates I know both Margaret Schmidt and William Crowder are buried
in Miles Cemetery.  I believe they each lived in the Merrimac
Point/Moredock Precinct area.
I am especially interested in who the relatives of Maggie were.  She is
my paternal grandmother.  I am not a Crowder grandchild.  My grandfather
was a later husband, John Weber, from St Louis.
I would appreciate any information and will be happy to pay postage.
Thank you.

I found them on the  Federal Census of 1880 and 1900 in Monroe Co, New Design Pct.

On the 1900 Census I can't read the names other than Charles and Rosina; I can make out that they immigrated in 1855 from Germany.

I am looking for information on the Konrad RUECK family who emigrated to

My name: Edward J. Keil.  My wife's name is Nancy Keil (Mohrmann).
Surnames: MOHRMANN (some times MOHRMAN) , VOSS
Details of information desired: Naturalization, birth, death, marriage
Information available:
   1860 census for Henry Mohrmann family in Waterloo, IL, Monroe County
   (can't interpret all names of children).
     1870 census for Fred Mohrman family in St. Louis, MO
   (same family based on names, ages and surviving children's names)
   Naturilzation of Henry Mohrman from Monroe County Circuit Court telephone
inquiry indicating
   citizenship was granted in September 1855.  He had immigrated from
Hanover, Germany.
   Henry was a registered voter in Monroe County (Fountain Precinct)
10/17/1865. His Name was
   mispelled as Henry Mohrmath)
It is believed that Henry came to America in 1842 (passenger listing
unknown) at age 13 with his parents (names of parents and siblings unknown).
He married Elizabeth Voss (date unknown).  Their first child (Ernst) was
born in 1857.  It is believed that Henry and Elizabeth had 9 children.
census data indicates that the last three (Elizabeth, Katherine and John)
were born in Missouri.  The first six (Ernst, ?, ?, Frank, ?, Mary or Marie)
were born in Illinois.  Henry and Elizabeth probably left Monroe County in
We believe that Henry and Elizabeth were Catholic.  An examination of
microfilm records at the St. Louis County Library of Sts. Peter and Paul
church records proved unhelpful due to the poor quality of the copies of the
original records (most are unreadable).
I have noted that in the M.S.G.S. surname query (VOSS #E05) is listed.
Any help you can give in this search would be much appreciated.

I want to thank everyone who responded to my inquiry regarding the Kissel
family. I'm excited to say I have identified my family photo's. I have been
in contact with a descendant of the Kissel family who has identified the
individuals, plus has given me a lot more on my Kissel / Theobald
connection. A special thank you to "Rich". This would still be my "brick
wall" without  help from the list.

I believe I was the one who responded to an inquiry on the EBEL name in
Monroe County, IL.  I recognized it as the name of the name of the person my
ancestor married in the 1880's. Amalia/Emilie Kempf married Philip Ebel.  Philip may
have been a son or grandson of your Ebel.  Janet McLain

Does anyone know if St. Paul's Ev Church in Harrisonville, IL had a confirmation class in 1905? The church records has entries for the 1903 and 1907 confirmation classes, but there are no entries for 1905. I believe that my grandfather, Walter F. Pieper, was confirmed at St. Paul's in the year 1905. If there was a class that year, does anyone have a list of the confirmands?
