Robert and Susan...I do not know if you are familiar with a book that was
complied by Emra Stuckey ( deceased) that is Darnall Spence Steers Spangler
Stuckey Sill and brief accounts of families into which member married. There
was a copy in the the Dominy Memorial Library at Fairbury, Ill. When I first
started researching my family, I was informed that this book existed and
bought a copy from the Mrs. Stuckey's daughter. It was so helpful I
immediately ordered the 2nd copy so each of my children would have it.
Though it and a researcher I located a 3rd cousin of mine in Fairbury that
was just a joy and full of info. We visited this cousin last year and spent a
week in Livingston Co, including the Spence cemetery and the Cooper cemetery.
It was a wonderful week.
Supposedly Mrs. Stuckey had given all her notes on from the writing of this
book to the lady at the THE FORT but I have not been able to really get any
help from them.
I do not have the time right now before the holidays to look in the book to
see if any of the people you have mentioned are in this book but will be glad
to do so when the time prevails. This is a very large family and some of the
info goes quite away back. Also there is a huge quantity of descendants
still living in the Livingston area. Believe the Darnalls had a great
family reunion there this summer.
If either of you would like to contact me, email is
