    3. I did have relatives in Mason County for about 20 years but most moved away. Surnames were Davis, and Eveland. A couple of them are buried in the cemetery in Bath. The one I'm curious about is Alexander T. Davis, buried in Bath, who died in the Civil War. I never could learn if he had married and had a family, and that would be my question. Otherwise that was all I really wanted to know.

    1. ([ILMASON])Re: Surname Shout Out
    2. I was stumped on Michael Martzluf for thirty years, until one year ago.  Michael was born 1821 and died in 1897.  He and his wife Barbara (or Barbary) are buried in Walkers Grove Cemetery near Easton.  I discovered that Michael was born in Altenheim, which at that time was a part of the State of Baden, in Germany.  It is now in  the State of Baden-Württemberg.  For many years I was misled by my grandmother's youngest sister who said that Michael was born in Baden-Baden, a town, not a State.  Through Family Search I was able to go back to Michael's fifth great grandfather (three ways) who died in Altenheim in 1635.   While I'm no longer stumped on Michael's ancestry I'm posting this in case if there is anyone else out there who is searching this line.  In Germany the name tended to be spelled Marzloff.   Michael and Barbara married late and had only one child, John Martzluf 1860-1921.  John married Amanda Jane Sarff 1861-1944 and they had eight children.   Michael and his youngest sister Eva came to America together in 1854 on the Havre.  I don't know where Eva ended up, but I may have a tintype photo of her with two young girls.  Another descendant has a copy of the same photo so we believe it is someone we are both related to.   Eva's name on the immigration passenger list was spelled Eva Mayloff and the ship was called Aurre, both misspelled in trying to read the handwriting.   I hope this helps someone on this list.   Debby Bliss   In a message dated 5/30/2018 7:53:42 PM Mountain Standard Time, ricksbookshelf@gmail.com writes:   Hi everyone!

    1. [ILMASON] STEVENSON Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Laura A. STEVENSON which was taken at the Shively Studio in Decatur, IL. The photograph is dated 26 Apr 1887 and notes that Laura is 3 years old at the time. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Laura and her family: Laura STEVENSON was b. Apr 1884 in Monticello, IL to parents Wilbur F. STEVENSON (1842-1920) and Alice TALLMAN (1850-1929). Laura was one of 5 children born to this couple including, Evan; Ida Schalk; Lydia; Laura; and Mary Elizabeth STEVENSON, all born between 1872 and 1889. Laura married Jonas Joseph William AYRE (1882-1944) and together they had a son, Robert Stevenson AYRE (1912-1997). Her sister Lydia married into the BOGGS Family and died in 1931 in Morgan County, IL and her sister Ida died in 1971 in Scottsdale, AZ. Census records provide the following details: 1900 census of Monticello, IL: Wilber F. STEVENSON, age 51, born Nov 1842, married 29 years, born KY, parents born KY/OH, a Landlord Allie T. STEVENSON, wife, age 49, born Dec 1850, married 29 years, 5 children/5 living, born OH, parents born OH Evan STEVENSON, son, age 27, born Sept 1872, born IL, a Lawyer Lydia STEVENSON, dau, age 18, born Feb 1882, born IL, at School Laura STEVENSON, dau, age 16, born Apr 1884, born IL, at School Mary STEVENSON, dau, age 10, born Jun 1889, born IL, at School Susan FASOA, Mother, age 70, born Feb 1830, a widow, 5 children/3 living, born OH, parents born OH I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to its rightful place, with a family member. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

    3. Hi, Is their someone in Mason County who will be going to the court house and could look up a divorce record for me? The man would have been Henry C. Davis and the wife Charlotte Coryell Davis. They were married in Jan 1875 in Tazewell County Illinois but then he married again Feb 1888 in Tazewell County Illinois and Charlotte married William E. Brown 1888 in Mason County. She was from Mason County. Am really curious as to how this all works out and to see if I am on the right track. Thanks to all and I hope someone can help. Haven't had anything from Mason County mail list in a long time so I hope its still active. Roberta Summers

    3. Studying the pictures further I think I have the dates and her name. “Baby Girl, Born Dec 1880, Died Nov 11 1881”. Her name appears to be Joy Shock. The birth date is not clear. The D doesn’t show but the “ec” is fairly clear so it has to be December. She must have been born after the 1880 census was taken since she is not listed in it. As far as I know the only adult male Shocks in Mason County at that time were Adam and Jefferson so one of them must be the father. The grave is also grouped with that family.

    1. [ILMASON] Whose child is in this grave.
    2. Alison McIntyre via
    3. I had earlier found the grave of Mary Ann Myers Shock, wife of Adam Shock and mother of Catherine Shock Himmel, Jefferson Shock, Lucas Shock, and Eliza Ann Shock Neikirk. This spring I realized that Adam’s grave was next to hers, and that Jefferson was next to Adam’s. They are all lying on the ground and very hard to read. I took some pictures although the light was not ideal and was ready to leave when I realized that there was a fourth grave in the series. Fortunately it had rained the day before and the ground was very soft. I brushed the sand away and realized that it said “Baby Girl , Died Nov ? 1881, Born May ? ? ” I’m not sure of the dates. I first thought that she was Jefferson’s child and thought what a terrible winter that would have been since Jefferson died in January, 1881. However since Adam’s second wife was much younger than he was, she could have been her child. Looking at census records for Vrylina gave me a shock. In 1900 she is the widow of John Gerhard Wessling and had three children, two of whom are still alive (Ada is married to Charles Henry Gumbel, Louella is married to George Washington Wessling, the son of her third husband, I don’t know when or where her son Matt died.) In 1910 she is the wife of George W. Rogers, the mother of her first three children! The last census where they were together was 1860 in New York. In 1870 she is living with her mother and an aunt in Mason County. All three children were alive then. She now says she had four children one of whom is alive. (Ada died in 1909.) I don’t know if she and George Rogers divorced and then got back together or if she was married to him the whole time. I haven’t found a divorce record but I don’t know if it would be in New York or Illinois. (It makes me a bit suspicious about the deaths of her second and third husbands.) I know that there are probably not birth or death records, but there might have been something in the newspaper. If anyone can shed light on this child I would like to know. Thanks for any help. It is an interesting problem.

    3. Joanne I hope you are on the list. I need some help looking for a death record from Mason County or maybe even an obituary. The person I am looking for is William Goben and he was born in 1851 in Mason County. Some say he died in June 1919 and some say June 1920 and I am not sure either one is correct. I do know he was on the 1910 census living with his son, Charlie D. Goben in Kilbourne. He has a tombstone in Bethel but it doesn't have a death date. He was married first to Nancy Scholes and 2nd. to Nancy Kirk and both in Mason County. If you or anyone can help I would really appreciate it. Thanks. Roberta Summers

    1. [ILMASON] Question
    2. Hi All, Does anyone on the list know anything about George W. Auxier and Mary Rodgers/Rogers? I found they were married in Mason County on 4 July 1868 . I also found a George W. Auxier died 4 August 1873 in Mason County and was buried in Big Grove cemetery and he was born 9 March 1852. Would this be the same George who married Mary? They also had one child William Bernard Auxier who was born 17 July 1869 in Mason County and he died 1 June 1870. This information I don't know how correct it is. Mary's parents were Bernard Rogers/Rodgers and Elizabeth Finch. I need to find Mary and see if she remarried and had more children. I found a Mary Auxier married and Alvin Dowell in Mason County but I don't believe this is the right Mary because they married in 1870 unless her and William were divorced. If someone could help me I would really appreciate it. Thanks. Roberta Summers
