Marriage Notes for Margaret Zeigler and Levi Bissell:
I had information that Margaret Zeigler was married to Stephen Webster on 3l March 1892 (source??)  Since she would have been 60 at the time, if she did marry him, it is likely that it was a second marriage.  No record in the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index. More research needed.

The 1888 book states he was born about 1768, the other says he died April 27, 1847 aged 75 years, l month and 11 days, which would put his birthdate in March, 1772.

Came to Illinois about 1836 from Ohio, traveling by wagon.  Stopped first on West Bureau Creek for about nine months, then settled where his son Jacob later lived, at Smithdale. "Mr. P. states that when his father arrived in this State he owned a team of horses and wagon; he also had $50. in silver half-dollars; one of horses died soon after his arrival; his father was a native of Maryland, and after his marriage removed from there to Ohio with a two-wheeled cart, taking his family with him, which consisted of a wife and four children; he states that his father remembers the battles of the Revolution very distinctly; the first piece of land that he entered was on Sec. 7 and consisted of 80 acres; Levi Templin went to Danville on foot, wearing a handkerchief on his head, and carrying his provisions with him and performed the errand; the Land Office being situated at that place at that time."

Came to Ohio with his first wife (unknown) and 7 children.  His wife died and he married Mrs. Barbara Welsh Lomann whom he had known in Maryland.  Her husband, James Loman, had died 6 weeks after reaching Ohio.  Mrs. Loman had 8 children.  Edward and Barbara had 4 children together.

Ottawa Fair Dealer, Ottawa, Illinois, February 17, 1866:
    SUDDEN DEATH. - We announce with pain the sudden death, on Monday evening, of Joseph Kleiber, one of the oldest settlers, and a highly respectable farmer, in the town of Rutland, in this county.  He had attended to feeding his cattle and "chores" as usual in the evening, and coming into the house, complained of a sudden pain in his limbs, we believe, and then exclaiming, "Oh, it is going to my head!" dropped into a chair, and in a few moments was dead.  He was a large man, of stout and vigorous frame, and apparently of iron constitution.  He was 71 years of age.

Per 1860 Census, Joseph was born in Pennsylvania.

Notes for Elizabeth Daniels:
Ottawa Fair Dealer, Ottawa, Illinois, April 13, 1861:
    DIED: Of erysipelas, March 26, 1861, in the town of Rutland, LaSalle co., Ill., Mrs. Elizabeth Kleiber, in the fifty-sixth year of her age.
    She departed this life after a few days illiness, during which she was never heard to murmur or complain, but meekly bore her sufferings as our sweet Savior, knowing that it was her Father in Heaven calling her home from the sufferings of this world to reap her reward in that land of bliss, where the weary are at rest.  She has left a bereaved husband and children, besides many friends, who mourn her as an affectionate wife and mother; and being one of the first settlers of the State, her acquaintance is very extensive, many of whom have reason ever to remember her kindness in an hour of trouble.
    She has been a member of the Methodist church a number of years, during which time she has ever manifested a deep interest in Christ.  She has regularly attended the class and prayer meetings, and within the last few months of her existence, she seemed to manifest a deeper interest, if possible, than usual, as she went around performing her little errands of kindness.  She seemed to be conscious that she would soon be called to the realities of that better world.  When last she spoke in class, she said that she felt prepared to meet her dear parents and children in Heaven, and wear that crown of glory which was prepared for her.  She felt that the time was very near.  But a few hours before she died, she exclaimed, "Jesus is waiting for me;" then calling her husband by name twice, she clasped his hand, but said no more, and slept.
    Asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep,
    From which non ever wake to weep;
    A calm and undisturbed respose,
    Unbroken by the sounds of foes.


Per 1860 census, Elizabeth was born in Virginia.

Notes for Candace M. McKernan:
Undated newspaper article notes that Candace Ackerman, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. J. McKernan, died at Long Beach, California.  She had moved to North Dakota a number of years previously and was spending the winter in California when she contacted pneumonia and died.  The remains were to be shipped to Atlantic to be buried by her parents (her parents are buried in Streator).  Since her sister Augusta was living in California and died there in 1927, it is likely that Candace was visiting her.

Notes for Augusta Elma McKernan:
Information about Augusta McKernan from Rozelle Trainer, who said she had gotten this info from Bob Lockwood (both descendants of Salanda McKernan Lockwood, sister to Augusta):
Augusta was married to Byron Henderon and then divorced.  She later married Thomas McCoy, a younger man, and moved to California.  They lived on the beach (possibly Malibu).  Gussie was in the real estate business and owned real estate and was supposedly quite successful.  One day her husband just disappeared.  Salanda went back to Illinois to live with her sister Salanda.  Some time later, there was a knock on the door one day.  The woman standing there told Gussie she could tell her where her husband was.  The woman was invited to spend the night.  In the morning, she was gone and Gussie was dead.  The family may have suspected foul play, but since Gussie was in her 60's, it could have been natural causes. 
The previous story may have some elements of truth - but has not been proven.  Augusta died and is buried in Long Beach, California. (Streator Daily Times Press, March 9, 1927)
At one time Gussie also worked as a milliner for Marshall Field's in Chicago.  On one visit from the Lockwood family, Gussie supposedly asked someone to hand her the medicine - and it was hashish.

Streator Daily Time-Press, March 5, 1927:  word received that Mrs. Gussie McKernan McCoy died yesterday in Long Beach, California.  Had moved to California about 7 years ago. 

Streator Daily Times-Press, April 21, 1927:  Mrs. McCoy had been visited by her niece, Mrs. Ammonette of San Diego. They had been out for the evening with friends. In the early morning, Mrs. Ammonette was shocked to discover that Gussie had died - apparently of an unknown heart ailment. (so the family story was not quite true!)

History of Licking Co., Ohio, compiled by N.N. Hills, Jr., Newark, Ohio; A. A. Graham & Co., Publisher, 1881 (online at www.heritagepursuit.com):

The two families of Hughes and Ratliff, and that of a man named John Carpenter, of which little or nothing is known, were the sole occupants of the territory now constituting this county, at the close of the last century. Early in the spring of the opening year (1800) of the present century, three more families, Greens, Pitzers and Van Buskirks were added to the number. In August, Isaac Stadden and family came, making the seventh; and in September, Captain Samuel Elliott and family arrived, constituting the eighth. The marriage of Colonel John Stadden and Betsey, daughter of the aforesaid Green, which took place on Christmas day, 1800, made the ninth family, which was the whole number in this territory when the year closed.  (pg. 215)

Isaac Stadden and Colonel John Stadden were also pioneer settlers in the Licking valley this year (1800). They came from Northumberland county, Pennsylvania. John was a widower, and had been in the service of some surveying party, this, probably, being the means of bringing to his notice the beautiful valley of the Licking. It was, probably, the same part to which he was attached as axeman, or chain-carrier, that Captain Elias Hughes served as hunter. Isaac Stadden had a wife and two children.

In the spring of 1800, these veteran pioneers came up the Licking valley, entered some bottom land, partially cleared, a mile below Newark, now on the Jones farm, built a cabin, prepared some ground and put in a crop.
(pg. 216-217)

Mrs. Isaac Stadden related to Hon. Isaac Smucker that late in October, 1800, her husband went into Cherry valley to hunt deer, that being better hunting ground than the Licking valley; and that he came home in the evening greatly excited, having discovered the "Old Fort," of which he had not before heard. The next morning they mounted their horses, and took a good look at this great curiosity, riding all around it on the top of the embankment. So far as known, they were the first white persons who saw this great work of antiquity.  (pg. 217)

Mr. Isaac Stadden was a carpenter by trade, and brought his tools when he came to the county, which he used to the great convenience of the neighborhood. Especially was he useful in making all the cofns needed by the early settlers, for a number of years. The coffin for Mrs. Ratliff, who died in 1802, was made by him, and so were inany others. They were at first made out of puncheons split out, then hewed and planed.

Isaac Stadden built a "hand-mill" during the winter after he came, for the purpose of grinding the corn grists of a few neighbors, as well as for his own accommodation. This was the first effort at mill building, with the possible exception of one, a "make shift," previously erected by Elias Hughes He raised a crop in 1801, and in the spring of 1802 moved upon land he had purchased further down the valley, upon which he lived until his death, which occurred in 1841. His wife continued to reside upon the same place until she died, July, 1870, at the ripe age of ninety years.
(PG. 218)

Mrs. Catharine Stadden was born in Northumberland county, Pennsylvania, in June, 1780. Her father, Mr. Kleiber was a German by birth. She and her husband, Isaac Stadden, were also pioneers of the Licking valley in 1800, arriving shortly before Mr. Samuel Elliott, and locating about a mile below where Newark was laid out two years after their arrival. Mrs. Stadden lived here seventy years, nearly all the years of her adult life, and they were eventful years-eventful in her own life, eventful in the history of the west, and the history of the world. She died July 3, 1870, in the ninety-first year of her age. She was one of the best of the pioneer mothers; a woman of rare frankness and candor; of integrity of character and fidelity to her convictions, and one whose aim it was to discharge her duty in all the varied relations of life. She cherished the Christian religion during the last sixty years of her life, adopting views known as Socinian, during the latter half of her life, and to which she adhered until her death. Her memory was always well stored with history and incidents of pioneer life, much of which has found its way into other parts of this work.  (PG. 221)

Notes for Aaron Daniels:
Aaron Daniels lost his first child Cecelia when she was only 4.  In August of 1854, cholera struck the Daniels family and in less than a week, Aaron's wife Maria and 6 of their children all died of the disease.  One possible cause for the cholera was that the family had recently eaten fresh pork, which might have been tainted because the weather had been hot.  (See Ottawa Free Trader, August 19, 1854).  Also losing their lives were George Head, Louisa Parker (child of Mrs. Parker, daughter of Aaron Daniels) aged 4; Mrs B. Fleming, sister of Maria Daniels; Alvah Channel, living with Aaron; Miss Kingsley, school teacher who had been boarding with the Daniels family; and Garrett Galvin, who had been assisting in burying of the dead.  The August 26th edition of the paper also lists Thomas J. Head, Sarah Loy, and a child of Mr. B. Fleming, but the cholera had subsided with no other deaths.

Death dates for Maria and the children are listed as August 14, but may be slightly different.

Names and dates of all children from newspaper account of the cholera account, Daniels Cemetery records, and 1850 and 1860 U.S. census records - LaSalle Co., Rutland Twp.

    28.  John McKernan, born Abt. 1790 in <Cork, Ireland>; died January 01, 1832 in Illinois.  He married 29. Polly Stowder Abt. June 1814.
    29.  Polly Stowder, born Bet. April 05, 1794 - 1795 in <South Carolina or Virginia>; died November 15, 1865 in Mason Farm, Streator, LaSalle Co., Illinois.

Notes for John McKernan:
John came to LaSalle Co., IL from Kentucky in the fall of 1828, settling at Covell Creek (LaSalle Co. History, 1886). 

John drowned January 1, 1832 in trying to cross the Illinois River.  From "Pioneer Adventures of Rosann Slater" in "Stories of Pioneer Days":
    Not long after they had reached their new home, Rosann's father went across the Illinois River to Ottawa to get supplies, but never returned.  One day they saw some Indians washing his stockings.  Later his body was found along the shore where he had been drowned, and in his coat pocket was a red silk dress for his daughter Peggy.

Although no records exist to show where John was buried, it is reasonable to assume that he was buried in the cemetery on his farm which came to be known as Ebersol's Grove Cemetery.  This was an old pioneer cemetery which has long since been abandoned.

"Henry Hibbard made a claim on S.5, T. 33, R. 4 and sold to Disney, and he to McKernans in 1831, and they sold to Ebersol in 1834."  - Elmer Baldwin, History of LaSalle Co., Ill., 1877 pg. 257

"John McKernan, from Kentucky, settled on Covell Creek, in the fall of 1828; lived there one year, and then went to Brown's Point, and made a claim on S. 32, T. 33, R. 3; in 1831 sold the claim to Charles Brown, and bought a claim of Disney, on S. 5, T. 33, R. 4.  In 1832, Mr. McKernan was drowned in the Illinois river.  In 1834 the widow sold the claim to Joseph Ebersol, and with the family, removed to S. 22, T. 31, R. 4, at the head of Otter creek, where she died, in 1872.  Two sons, Hugh and Patrick, died previously." - Baldwin, pg. 259

 Sketch of Settlers - Grand Rapids
"Henry Hibbard came from Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1827, and made a claim on S. 5, in 1829, on what has been called the Ebersol farm.  John McKernan bought the claim of Disney, in 1831, who must have purchased of Hibbard.  McKernan settled there in 1831, and sold to Ebersol in 1834.
  Joseph Ebersol, with Elizabeth Shuey, his wife, and family, came from Harrisburg, PA., and in August, 1834, purchased of Mrs. McKernan, her claim on S. 5, and made that his home, till he died in 1873."  - Baldwin, pg. 451

Sketch of Settlers - Waltham
"James, McKernan, son of John McKernan, of South Ottawa, with this mother, settled on S. 22 , at the head of the creek timber in 1834, where he still resides; his mother died there in 1872….." - Baldwin, pg. 462

Grand Rapids Township, Joseph Ebersol
"…the county was explored for a suitable location, which was chosen on the head of Covel Creek, on the border of the prairie, near what has since been known as Island Grove, Secs. 5 and 6, Range 4 E, Grand Rapids Township.  Paying the Widow McKernan $500. for her claim…they began here August 1, 1834." - The Past & Present of LaSalle Co., 1877 , pg. 622.


Although John McKernan's place of burial is not known, it is likely the Ebersol Grove Cemetery, Grand Rapids Twp., LaSalle Co., Illinois.  This is an early pioneer cemetery, long abandoned.  However, John McKernan owned the farm on which it is located at the time of his death.  His wife sold it to Ebersol in 1834, two years after his death.

Notes for Henry Cramer:
Henry's brother Benjamin Cramer married Elizabeth's sister, Anna Speck (two brothers married two sisters)

Many stories of Henry's death talk about how he died during the summer of the Black Hawk War - implying perhaps that he died in the fighting.  This is not so.  At the time of his death, there was no fighting in Illinois - it was taking place in Wisconsin.  Also, the obituary of his daughter, Mary Cramer McKernan in the March 14, 1908 issue of the Streator Weekly Monitor states that "When a child of eleven she came to Illinois with her parents who settled near Bloomington, where Mr. Cramer took sick and died and at which place he was buried.  This was in the year of the Black Hawk war."

From History of LaSalle Co., Henry came to Illinois from Richland Co., Ohio in 1831and died in 1832.

Generation No. 6

    36.  Johannes (John) Hoobler, born Bet. 1735 - 1739 in <Colony of Pennsylvania>; died Bet. 1815 - 1820.  He was the son of 72. Jacob Hubler and 73. Anna Barbara.  He married 37. Anna Margaretha.
    37.  Anna Margaretha, died Abt. 1799.

Notes for Johannes (John) Hoobler:
www.hoobler.com, 8/26/99:  "During the American Revolution, Johannes was a volunteer from Tulpehocken in the Pennsylvania Militia, 6th Battlion, 3rd Company from Berks County.  The Militia was not part of the Continental Army of George Washington, but a reserve force much like today's National Guard, called into active duty only when needed.  Johannes' name appears on the muster roll of this company on duty at the Battle of South Amboy, Long Island in September of 1776.  This was the first battle that the British got serious with the colonials after the Declaration of Independence in July earlier that year.  George Washington called up all the Militia forces in the area of New York to repel the British reinforcements that landed at Long Island.  This proved to be unsuccessful as this initial British advancement went through New York City all the way to Philadelphia by the spring of 1777.  But Johannes volunteered again in June of 1780 to serve until July of 1781.  Unfortunately, many revolutionary war records are missing today.  And for Johannes, no other records have survived about his service during the war.  Consequently, the Pennsylvania State Archives in Harrisburg list his record as 'inactive.'"

Based on 1790 census, Johannes had at least 9 children, although not all names are known.

Isom, the father of the subject of this notice, was one of the sixteen children. He enlisted three times in the War of 1812.. His first and second terms of service were of short duration. He served seven months in the last enlistment.

Notes for John Channell:
John Channel, a great hunter, Thomas Deweese and Henry Smith, were pioneers of this township in 1804. They were Virginians. Smith was one of the early magistrates of the township, also associate judge of the common pleas court from 1809 to 1823.

John Channel was a somewhat remarkable pioneer, on account of his hunting exploits, a recital of which would make a volume. Some idea may be gleaned of his prowess in this direction by the single statement that he once informed Mr. Thomas Taylor that he killed nine bears one day before noon. These animals were very plenty on the bluffs lining the Licking valley. Channel had a been raised among the Indians; was tall, straight as an Indian, black hair and swarthy complexion; indeed, looked and acted more like an Indian than a white man. He raised quite a family and his boys were mostly hunters.
