Subject: BARNEY, BESLEY Genealogy

I would like to find the grave of my ancestor James BARNEY, born ca 1803 and living in Salem TWP (Edwards), IL in the 1860 census. His wife Susan was buried without him in 1886 in Clay County so presumably he died not too long after 1860. I would also like to find graves (if they exist) of his parents William & Jerusha (JEFFERSON) BARNEY and his in-laws Samuel Coles & Elizabeth (BAGS) BESLEY), all of Friendsville. William probably died 1826 and his wife after. The BESLEY couple were both born ca 1780 so probably died closer to 1850.

On 15 Nov 1894 Karl Wilhelm Strauss (4 Oct 1869 - ?) married Hannah Louise Gertraud Bosecker (3 Jan 1873 - 26 Jul 1895) at St John Lutheran Church near Cowling, IL. Karl & Hannah had one child, Fred Matthew Strauss (19 Mar 1895 - 11 Dec 1975). Fred was raised by his maternal grandparents. I am trying to determine what became of Karl Wilhelm Strauss. I believe that Karl was the son of Karl Frederick & Elizabeth (Klepper) Strauss. I believe that Karl had the following siblings: Christian (20 Jun 1865 - 13 May 1948), Louise Gottliebe (28 Aug 1874 - 19 Feb 1895), Gotthold Johann (13 Nov 1875 - ) & Christian Friedrich (Jan 1858 - ?).
