BOLTON: I am looking for the parentage of Davilia and Charity Bolton. They moved to Stephenson county about 1850. They came from Delaware county, New York. Their daughter Loretta Amanda married William R VAN BROCKLIN. Also need the maiden name of Charity. The station of Bolton was named after this Bolton Family as the land was owned by them. William was the nephew of Conrad VAN BROCKLIN.

Hello, my name is Jonathan and I've been searching for information on a family member who fought in the civil war as a union soldier. All I have been able to come up with is that his name was Frederick W STEGNER. He was in company I of the 74 INF. I think he lived in the township of Davis or Freeport in Stephenson County.

I found my g-grandparents on the 1920 census in Silver Creek Twp. Their names were Lewis and Estella BURGESS. My Grandfather Walter married my grandmother Lillian Neal in Freeport on Jan. 3, 1924. I don't know when or where my g-grandparents died, but I'm assuming it was in Stephenson Co. Lewis was born April 1, 1867 in Wayne Co. and is said to have lived to be 80 or 90 years old. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

I've been searching and searching for some sort of history to my family name for years now. The surname is MACHAMER. I've traced it back from an old birth certificate to Stephenson County. The year is around 1864. The names that pop up are Aaron, Robert and Daniel MACHAMER. These people would be my father's grandfather and⁄or great grandfather. if you have any information or suggestions on where to go from here, I'd appreciate it.
I've looked and found land sales records and Civil War enlistment but would just like to find some census information that lists residency, wife, children etc. This way I can then see if these are the people I've needed to track down or if I should move on to another state.

In the census of 1880 he resided in Freeport on Jackson Street with wife ANNA LOY PARKER, baby SARAH BLANCHE also born in Freeport in November 4, 1876, and father-in-law JOHN PARKER.
