My ggrandfather was married to a Rebecca Spil(l)man who was born abt 1845 and married to my ggrandfather, James Beat(t)y Hill in Franklin County IL on 8 Aug 1870. It looks like she may have been born in Shelby County IN. Not sure where she is buried, but her father (my gggrandfather) died in Duquion, IL (not sure whether that is a town, or county or even whether it still exists). Obviously I have much info to find about my IL ancestors!
HI Michele, My Spilman's are located in Southern Eastern Iowa, mostly around Ottumawa. It is interesting that we are both living in the same town. If you would like E-mail me direct at GMGT45CA@yahoo.com
I am the G-GD of James Harvy Riley Spilman and one of his sons (William I believe) lived in Los Angeles and worked on the transit system down there for years, I could confirm which son, but I have a rather large all in one scanner sitting on the binder with that information. My HP printer/scanner decided to start communicating in some strange language last night and I have been fussing with in for about 7 hours off and on now. I have another one, but I don't want to have to hook it up if I can get the HP working again. Looking forwardto talking to you about the family. Hope to hear from you soon.

You probably have used this site, but I cann't tell. Try "USGenWeb . org>Illinois>Kendall Co." Even though Sandwich IL is in DeKalb Co, ther is a small portion in Kendall and LaSalle. Also try "rootsweb" Families of DU PAGE, GRUNDY, KENDALL, LA SALLE, and WILL Counties in northeastern Illinois
