Does anyone out there know how LANCASTER got it's name - I'm curious if maybe it was started by people who came from Lancaster PA.
(Webmaster's Note: Yes, "Its name was derived from Lancaster, the county seat of Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, from which locality many emigrated to this vicinity." from History of Edwards, Lawrence and Wabash Counties, Illinois, 1883)

Also can anyone give me directions to some of the older cemetaries in the Lancaster area. My mother says that she can remember going to several when she was younger - but she can't remember where they are located
(Webmaster's Note: There are quite a few smaller ones.  The main ones are the Old Lancster Cemetary (on the west side along the Lancaster-West Salem road), the New Lancaster Cemetary (on the north side along the Lancaster-Sumner road), and Jordan Creek or Old Brick Cemetary (which my family takes care of, about 2 miles sw of Lancaster).  There are several other small family cemetaries around the area (one being about two miles west on a curve of the Lancaster-West Salem road).  If you are visiting you might check at the Mt.

Looking for any information on the Ayers line between 1800-1890. Family moved to Gibson Co, IN in abt 1810, believed to have conducted some commerce on the Wabash. Looking for any information, related lines, etc. Believe this line from John Ayer, who arrived in the new world in 1635. Azariah Ayers was patriarch of Gibson family.
