Yearwood Family Genealogy Forum
I saw your message and looked up an old source of mine: Perrin, William H., History of Jefferson County, Illinois, Globe Publishing Co., Chicago, 1883, p. 299. He states: "The next fal after Aaron's [Yearwood] arrival, 1827, James Sursa, whose wife was sister to his wife and to Ward Webber, came out with his brother Jack Sursa. These men and one daughter were the children of Richard Sursa, who died in the war of 1812. Benjamin Webber came with the Yearwoods, married a Wilkerson and settled at the Jordan or Coley Smith place....Daniel [Webber] was stepson to James Sursa.
Perrin, op.cit., p. 300. "James Sursa built a mill, which was extensively useful in its day; he was also County Commissioner for several terms. He died December 27, 1852, and Jack had been ten years the past August."
Hope this helps. Suggest you contact library for interlibrary loan or if that doesn't work, you can perhaps contact University Micofilms, Inc., Ann Arbor, Michigan to see if they have this book on microfilm. Incidentally, there is a Sursa Cemetery in Jefferson County Illinois (near Mt. Vernon, Ill.) where many of my Yearwood ancestors are buried.
