Mystery Monday ~ William J. STEPHENS ~ RUSSELL ~ VAUGHAN/VAUGHN ~ MESSICK ~ TWILLEY ~ KIRBY ~ BENSON

Update: 4/30/2013 ~ 6/17/2013 ~ 6/18/2013 ~ 9/9/2013

I’ve been researching my third great-grandfather William J. STEPHENS for quite some time. He is my “needle in the haystack,” or “brick wall.”  He has one of the most generic names to research because there are many William J. STEPHENS in the time period I am researching. I have a tendency to post and ask about this subject in every aspect I can think of.  The last name has been misspelled in the census as STEAPHENS or STEVENS. Because I’ve been stuck on him, I was researching the people he had been living with in the 1860 census when he was 1o years old. I’ve been into researching hypothetical family trees lately. I started researching the VAUGHN family a while ago and I started again last week with adding an “A” to the name VAUGHAN. That made a difference.

I figured out last week that or am pretty sure that Elizabeth RUSSELL VAUGHAN/VAUGHN KIRBY is sister to James RUSSELL who married Nancy BENSON and also to Nancy Asbury RUSSELL TWILLEY (who is the mother of Mary TWILLEY VAUGHAN, who was the first wife on William Asbury VAUGHAN/VAUGHN) who married Samuel TWILLEY. They were all married in Dorchester, Maryland and all eventually lived in the area of Henderson, Illinois. James RUSSELL traveled with his son William G. RUSSELL and family from Ohio to Hancock, Illinois. Anna RUSSELL daughter of William J. RUSSELL married William J. STEPHENS who lived with William Asbury VAUGHAN/VAUGHN (and his mother was Elizabeth RUSSELL VAUGHAN/VAUGHN KIRBY)  in 1860 census in Henderson County, Illinois. William and Anna RUSSELL STEPHENS lived next door to William Asbury VAUGHAN/VAUGHN in the 1870 census. He would be cousin to Anna and her dad William. William J. STEPHENS and Anna RUSSELL met most likely because of family socials.

I’m looking for William J. STEPHENS who lived in Henderson County, Illinois in 1860, 1870, & 1880 2013-03-15

 William J STEPHENS b. 1850 Illinois – married Anna RUSSELL in 1870 ~Posted by Alena on September 22, 2011 ·

I posted on http://genforum.genealogy.com.

I’m looking for information on William J. STEPHENS. He was born abt. 1850 and married Anna RUSSELL in February 1870. They are listed in the Henderson County, IL 1870 and 1880 Census. I think I found William in the 1860 Census. William died, I believe sometime after 1894. Anna moved all her children to Lawrence County, Indiana by 1900 Census.

Who are William’s parents? If the census is correct, his dad was born in Pennslyvania and his mom was born in Ohio.

What year did William die?

Where is William buried? It could be in Southern Illinois. I guess they think Saline County, Illinois.  Of course, we thought they had always been in southern Illinois until I uncovered them in the 1880 Census in northern Illinois…Henderson County, Illinois. They could have moved to Southern Illinois because Anna had family that resided down there.

I have been researching my Kirby-Russell line and recently ran across Samuel Twilley/Nancy Russell in my research. They were enumerated right next to Thomas Kirby in the 1860 Henderson County, Illinois Census. Thomas Kirby was brother to Henry Kirby who married a Jane Russell. They were all from Dorchester County, Maryland. I’m guessing that Nancy and Jane were either sisters or cousins. Do you have any info on the Russell line? Furthermore, in this same census there was an Edward Russell married to an Elizabeth Twilley residing with a Spencer Wheatley (married Nancy Twilley). It would seem all these people are somehow connected. I do know that Nancy and Elizabeth were sisters….daughters of Samuel Twilley and Nancy Russell.

Surnames: RUSSELL, BENSON, JACKSON
HI,
I AM HELPING A LADY WITH THE RUSSELL NAME ALSO. SEEMS THE NAMES YOUR RESEARCHING AND THE LOCATIONS SEEMS THE SAME AS HERS. MAINLY THAT A JAMES RUSSELL AND HIS WIFE NANCY BENSON RUSSELL, MOVED FROM DORCHESTER CO., MARYLAND, TO HAMILTON CO., OHIO, WHICH IS VERY NEAR BUTLER. THEN JAMES RUSSELL WENT TO LIVE WITH A SON WILLIAM RUSSELL AND HIS WIFE AFTER NANCY DIED BETWEEN 1860 AND 1870. WILLIAM LIVED IN HANCOCK CO., ILL. AND LATER TO WHITE CO., ILL IN 1880, BY THAT TIME, JAMES HAD DIED ALSO.
HOWEVER, SOME OF THE OTHER RUSSELLS STAYED AWHILE IN THE HANCOCK CO., ILL. AREA. DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY INFO ON THIS LINE?
ELIZABETH RUSSELL, DAUGHTER OF JAMES AND NANCY, MARRIED RICHARD JACKSON ABOUT 1856 – 1857. ONE OF THEIR CHILDREN, JOHN HENRY JACKSON LIVED AWHILE WITH HIS UNCLE JOB RUSSELL IN HANCOCK CO., ILL.

William Asbury Vaughan, Dorchester Co. MD

Hi, I’m trying to find information regarding William Asbury VAUGHAN. I know he was born in Maryland and died in Illinois in 1840. I have found a marriage record at the USGWarchives showing he was married to Elizabeth RUSSELL in Dorchester Co, MD, 25 Dec 1827. They had at least 5 children (John T, William A, Samuel, Mary and Joseph). I would like any info regarding him, especially about his parents. William is my 4th great-grandfather. I have quite a bit of information regarding his descendants that I can share, but am absolutely stumped trying to discover his parents (and Elizabeth RUSSELL’s parents for that matter.)

  1. You have a lot of endurance to compile all this information. It’s so difficult to research common surnames. I realize there are some surname research groups out there for well-known surnames. There’s a Jones group, I believe, and a Williams group. Have you looked to see whether there is a Stephens or a Vaughan/Vaughn group?

    • I have looked and posted information or questions on different groups. I keep trying different places. I haven’t received any responses yet. I keep trying and hope somebody will be looking for or have the information.
