I am researching the Donaho's of Saline Co.,IL also, but I have Elbert Milton Stiff marrying Minerva Holmes 24 Mar 1831 in Gallatin Co.,IL. What makes you think she was a Donaho? The Holmes and the Donahos were connected in Sumner Co.,TN where my Noah comes from. I am at a brick wall on Noah as far as who his parents were. If you have any leads I would appreciate them.
