I recently heard from Lyn S. who has been researching the family of David Alcorn, 1827-1903. David married Lyn's great-grandmother's sister Louisa Englis in 1862 in Cass County, Illinois. According to the 1880 and 1900 census, David Alcorn's father was born in Scotland and his mother in Ireland.
Lyn noted that a great resource for David Alcorn researchers is the Find-A-Grave website where you can access more than 57 million grave records. To find out more about David's descendents, just type Alcorn and Cass County, Illinois in the search fields.
If you more information concerning David's ancestors, we'd love to hear from you.
