I am looking for information on the daughter and granddaughters of Edwin(1836-1910) and Margaret(1857-1942) (Wilton) Burnell. (After Edwin's death, Margaret married Emil Schumacher and then Elbert Martin)

Edwin and Margaret's daughter, Mabel Rose Burnell was born 1880 in Macoupin co Illinois and died 1976 in Cobden, Union co Illinois. She married Edson Pound about 1901.

They had 3 daughters - Dorothy, Mary and Margaret Pound.

Margaret Wilton Burnell's grandfather was John Wilton, who was a brother to my great grandfather, William Wilton. I am looking for information contained in a family Bible that belonged to John Wilton. This Bible was purchased at John's estate sale by his son, James (who was Margaret's father). I am looking for any clues as to what happened to this Bible.
