I am researching my ancestors from Illinois.
The four primary surnames are;Ashurst,Hare,Landes,Richards.
My mother's maiden name was Ashurst.Her father was Elijah Britton Ashurst b.Dec.15,1856 in Salisbury,Sangamon County,Ill.and d.Nov.19,1922 in Havana,Mason County,Il.He is buried in Bethel Cemetery,Bath,Ill.He married Sarah Elizabeth Hare who was b.Nov.19,1856 in Louisville,Jefferson County,Ky and d.April 17, 1906 in Virginia,Cass County,Il. She is buried in Bethel Cemetery,Bath,Il.also.
My father's surname was Richards.His father was Milas Hardin Richards b.May 30,1864 in Winchester,Ill.and d.Oct.3,1932 in Jacksonville,Ill.Milas married Savilla Ann Landes. Savilla was b.Oct.19,1865 in Edinburg,Christian County,Il. Both Milas and Savilla are buried in Jacksonville East Cemetery.
I was born in Jacksonville,Ill.My parents were Herbert D. Richards and Sarah Elizabeth Ashurst.
My paternal grandfather,Milas,operated a grocery store on North Main Jacksonville,Ill.until 1929.
My maternal grandfather,Elijah,was a farmer in Mason County,Il and he was also an ordained Baptist minister who preached on Sundays in the Bethel Baptist Church,Bath,Il.
