I am looking for any information on EDWARD or EMMA DAVIS of Pike County, IL. They were my paternal grandparents. EDWARD born 06-18-1880 and passed away in a nursing home in Pittsfield. EMMA was born 07-26-1884 and lived most of the time in Pearl. She passed away 10-1967. They had two living children, 1)WILLIAM E. DAVIS, born 08-09-1922 and 2)VERA (DAVIS) CAMERER, born 01-27-? and passed away 1994?. EMMA's father was HENRY SILKWOOD, but I do not have a name for her mother. EDWARD's father was WILLIS DAVIS, and I do not have a name for his mother. I do know EMMA's grandparent's surname was LITTLE and came from Kentucky. I know EDWARD and EMMA DAVIS are buried at Greenpond Cemetery. Likewise, I am looking for any information on MARY LEONA (WILSON, MCBRIAN) WOODS and WILLIAM or BILL WEISE of Pike County, IL. They were my maternal grandparents. MARY LEONA was born 07-11-1906 and passed away at Pittsfield hospital. WILLIAM or BILL WEISE, I know nothing about, except he lived in Bee Creek. MARY LEONA had three living children, MABLE (MCBRIAN) CARTER, JOHN MCBRIAN, and PEARL (MCBRIAN) DAVIS. MARY LEONA's mother was ADA MAE (DAVIS) WILSON and her father was ALBERT VINCENT WILSON who was born in Philadelphia, PA. Little else is known about this side of the family. Many pieces missing. I know that MARY LEONA was buried at Greenpond Cemetery. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
