Harold--Thank you!

I was aware that there was a large Marsh family in Piatt Co. but I was
unsure if there was any relation. I didn't think so. But now I will
definately reevaluate the situation. Daniel could easily be the father
of my John Wesley Marsh (b. 3-28-1856; d. 5-6-1909). Illiopolis, where
John Wesley's son raised his family, is just outside of Springfield.
The Marsh line is from my paternal grandmother, who died long before I
was born. But my paternal grandfather is still living (96yr and still
as sharp as a tack) and when questioned about his wife's family he was
at firt unsure whether she was born in Springfield or Illiopolis. So
this lead gives me great hope!!! Whether this is the missing link or
this lead gets ruled out, it eliminates a LOT of random searching!
Thank you SO much!

Happy Hunting to All,

Debbie Loveless :)
