Milligan family. I am researching a Milligan family that is found in Christian Co., IL. Postings on Ancestry suggest that the patriarch of this family is a David MILLIGAN who was born about 1760 and died about 1830 in Sparta, Randolph Co., IL. David Milligan had issue: Sarah; Fergus; James; David; Hezediah; William; Elvira; Mary; & Martha. My line is a David Milligan born about 1835 in IL; he spouse if found on the census as Rachel. David is the son of a widow named Sarah Milligan (born c1802; IL) and enumerated in the Mount Auburn District of Christian Co., IL in 1850. The only Milligan in Christian Co. in 1840 is a Forgus (i.e. Fergus) Milligan. I believe this is the same man who is the son of David Milligan of Randolph Co., IL and the same man who removed to Perry Co., IL by 1850; he died in 1857. Can anyone help?

Still searching for family of McKinsey Johnson in Randolph County. Now have a few new leads. He was living in a household in Randolph County headed by Henry Johnson from Delaware. Also in this home were James and Richard Duke Johnson aged five and six. Keeping house for them was Sarah Johnson Hindman, daughter of Brinkley Johnson of Delaware. The census lists McKinsey as twelve years old at the time, but of unknown relation. In searching for Brinkley Johnson in Delaware, I find that there were three men with that name at the same time in Delaware. At least two of them served in the War of 1812. One served in Saptain Stout's Company and another in the 9 Regiment, Delaware Militia in 1813. If any of these names ring a bell, please contact me. We were told that McKinsey was also related to the Steel or Steele family in some way. In searching the Johnson's in Delaware in search of Henry, Sarah or Brinkley, I found several instances of Johnson and Steel marriages. Did both families come to Randolph County together? Would like to know if anyone else knows of any of these marriages.

I am interested in information about James THOMPSON. I am working on my Master’s thesis, which has to do with people who worked as surveyors for the General Land Office during the years 1837-1841. Thompson was a resident of Randolph County (presumably Kaskaskia) during this time period, and also served as probate judge and county surveyor. His son John P. Thompson worked with him, along with an Archibald C. Thompson who may or may not be his son. I am hoping to find the following information: year and place of birth; year of arrival in Illinois; what other work he did; year and place of death; and where buried. What I would consider a goldmine is if I locate a descendent who may be in possession of letters written by him which refer to his work as a surveyor. In return, I would be happy to share any information I have gathered so far on him, and can send along photocopies from the field notes he kept as surveyor (available on microfilm at the Illinois State Archives).

Submitter: Brian McLaughlin (famtree1@aol.com)
Date: 15 Mar 1999
 

My McLaughlins in Randolph were there for a very short time, but I think they may be majorly linked through this county. My James C. McLaughlin was born in Ireland in 1816, and his wife Anne Eliza Lyons was born in Ireland in 1815. They were married in 1840, probably in Ireland, and they came to the United States apparently around 1845, although I haven't proven that through ship records. Their stay in Randolph supposedly was from 1845-48. Their only three children at the time all died in the year 1847, according to family bible records I found at the LDS in Salt Lake City, so I suppose they would be buried in Randolph Co. somewhere. This family moved to Marion County, Illinois in 1848, where the rest of their children were born from 1849 on. Their children married into the Morton and Parkinson, Storment families, with Blairs in the backgrounds of these families too. My family was of the Scotch Covenenter faith. Now, the reason I have posted this query is not really because this family spent alot of time in Randolph, but because I know of the background of Randolph coming from Chester County, SC and Tennessee in the earlier 1800s. I have heard that there were a few other Randolph County McLaughlins and I'm hoping to find the links to them some how. I have a feeling that with the religious connection with so many of these families, that any McLaughlin is probably somehow related to me. I do not, however, know the name of any of James C. McLaughlin's siblings or parents, although there is a strong possibility that his mother's name was Eliza. Anyway, if any of you have McLaughlins in Randolph, please, let's share info.

Looking for any information regarding MARGARET REDPATH LIVELY. Her parents are JOHN LIVELY and MOLLY ROBINSON. I have reason to suspect that Margaret was adopted: (1) In 1822, a James Redpath settled in Heacock Prairie, Randolph County, Illinois. This could be her father. (2) In the 1850 Sparta-Eden census, there is a Maria Redpath, age 11, living with the BURLINGAME family, along with three blacksmiths (Mr. Burlingame was also a blacksmith). Maria Redpath could be a sister. I do not know the age of Margaret Redpath Lively, but I am very curious as to her heritage. Any information is appreciated.
