I have now completed the biography for Albert Rodman Kemps who was born in Oakdale, Illinois in 1870. Also included is his wife, Clara Mae Rountree Kemps. I also added a link to Albert on seven other pages. This is the last of the Washington County, Illinois biographies. It also completes all of the Kemps and McClurken biographies that will be posted.

I have now posted the biography for Elizabeth Smith McClurken who arrived in South Carolina, at the age of 5, in 1772. I also updated four other files to provide a link to this biography. I plan to search for additional information in the South Carolina Archives.

I followed a link to the Illinois State Archives and ended up at a higher level that showed more collections. I went to the marriage section and very quickly found the dates for eleven McClurken or McClurkin marriages in my Family Tree Maker file. This also identified two spouses and the last name of a third. These archives did not include all the McClurken marriages. A few, that are on file in Washington County, were not in these archives. However, I will be revisiting the Illinois State Archives to see what other information I can locate.
