Re: Charles Dunsworth died 1842 McDonough Illinois

In Reply to: Charles Dunsworth died 1842 McDonough Illinois by Doris Dickerson of 43

The History of McDonough Co., IL published in 1885 by Centennial Publishing Co. is in error in stating Charles Dunsworth came to McDonough Co., IL in 1832 and died there in 1842. This was actually Thomas Melvin Dunsworth, son of Charles Dunsworth, who lived with his son, James H. Dunsworth in 1832 and died in McDonough Co., IL in 1842. That Thomas was the father of James H. is proved by a letter written by James Dunsworth to his father in 1828 and is cited and reprinted in the book, "Some Southern Colonial Families" Vol. 4, by David A. Avant, Jr. Avant cites his source as "The Henry Hebard West Papers", Los Angeles Public Library, MS#62-540. Also cited was the sketch on James H. Dunsworth found in the 1871 Atlas of McDonough Co., IL, McDonough County Court File #137, and the Bethel Baptist Cemetery records. This information was provided to me by Deborah Cook, who (like me) is also a descendent of James H. Dunsworth.
