John Blair Dewees 1829 IL.
Posted by: Rod Derienzo (ID *****6554) Date: January 24, 2006 at 16:03:23
  of 192

Hello all,
I need help in finding the parents and beyond of..

John Blair Dewees
Born Sept. 11, 1829 in Gallitin Co. IL.
Died Jan. 18, 1892 in Rector Twp., Saline Co. IL.

Married Margaret Jane Wilson in Hamilton Co. Aug. 29, 1863 b. 1833 in Hamilton Co. IL Died 1914

Their son Thomas Jefferson Dewees b. 1868 d. 1942+ was my GGGrandfather.

We know John Blair Dewees' Father died when JBD was 7 (1836?) and his Mother when he was 14 (1843?) leaving him to care for two sisters. An 1880 census states his father was from Kentucky and Mother from Tennessee. An earlier, 1860 census has him listed as John Blair Dewees/Davis. These names sound similar in German/Dutch. Was his father a Dewees or a Davis???
If anyone has any info on John Blair Dewees' parents please write. Thanks
Rod
