Hannah Elisabeth CLODFELTER was born 28 Nov 1807 at Rowan (now Davidson) County, North Carolina. She married Jacob CRAVER Jr. on 13 Apr 1796 at Davidson Co., NC. She died 04 Jan 1881 at Edwards Co., IL. Jacob was born 13 Apr 1796 at NC and died 15 Apr 1881 in Illinois. Both are buried at the West Salem Moravian Cemetery, at West Salem, Edwards County, Illinois. They moved from Davidson Co., NC to Edwards Co., IL in 1838. They are listed in the 1850 to 1880 Federal Censuses for Edwards County. Hannah was the second of seven (or six?) children of Maria Magdalena WALK CLODFELTER (1783-1822) and JOHN GLADFELTER (CLODFELTER) Jr. (1780-1845). Maria is buried at the Moravian Cemetery at Friedberg, Forsyth Co., NC and John moved to Edwards Co., IL where he is buried. After Maria died John remarried to Maria's elder widowed sister, Johanna. Hannah's birth and Baptismal Certificate is on display at The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Center in Williamsburg, Virginia. The Certificate reads as follows: Jesus My Joy Hanna Elisabetha CLODFELTER is born in North Carolina in Rowan County in the year 1807 the 28th November. Her parents are Johannes CLODFELTER and his Christian wife Maria Magdalena, born WALK. She was brought to Holy Baptism by Mr. RIDI, the preacher. Her baptismal sponsors were Hanna WALK and Georg FREY. Jacob CRAVER was the son of JACOB CRAVER Sr. I know nothing else of the JACOB CRAVER Sr. family. Can anyone help? Jacob CRAVER Jr. and Hannah CLODFELTER CRAVER were the parents of 12 known children: 1. Philip CRAVER (1834-???), nothing known. 2. Mary CRAVER (1835-???), nothing known. 3. Susan CRAVER (1837-???), nothing known. 4. Jacob CRAVER (1840-1914) married Alice T. (???-???), buried at W. Salem Moravian 5.

I am looking for information on a Anna EWING who married a James CROUCH 2-29-1846 in Edwards Co, IL. In the 1850 Edwards Co, Census we find James CROUCH 40 from England, Anna Crouch, 40 KY, and 2 girls Jane Ewing 14 from IN and Nancy 9 from IN. I am trying to find any other information on James Crouch and Anna Ewing Crouch. I know that in 1860 her 2 daughters were living in Wayne Co, IL Jane was married to a Elijah Garner and Nancy was living with them and near them was a Moses Ewing. (dont know if he is related). Would love to connect with anyone researching the Ewing line in Edwards or Wayne Co in Illinois. I am trying to find out who her husband was named Ewing. I know he had to have died somewhere between 1840 and 1846 either in Indiana or Illinois. Where are Ewing, or James Crouch or Anna Ewing Crouch buried or anything I can find out. Thanks

I am looking for information on the parents of Pallas MOORE who married Sarah W. KING in Richland Co, IL. I have from his death record that he was born in Edwards Co., IL in 1845. His parents MAY be Pallas MOORE, Sr. and Jane MUSGRAVE. I have found information on a Pallas MOORE, Sr. (although it is not certain that he is a senior. I was told it just looks like a mark after his name) in Lawrence Co., IL, but he was then married to someone else and has been researched back to 1850 census that shows he was living with someone totally different from Jane and his wife which showed up on the 1860 census and from there on. I have no information on Jane MUSGRAVE. I would like to find a birth record for Pallas MOORE (the younger one)and perhaps be able to verify who his parents were.

I am trying to find more information on James P. Lincoln. He was born about 1843 and died after 1900. I have found an index on guardianship for James in Edwards County, IL. He also enlisted in the army for the Civil War. He was living in Maple Grove when he enlisted. James married Malissa Wiley about 1870. They were in Wayne County, IL at that time. His children's names are, William Edgar, Simon, Charles, Oscar and possibly Samuel Hershel. Can anyone tell me who was his guardian and/or parents? Thank you.
