One thought on “Marriages from The Schuyler Citizen”

  1. Tidbits abt the Speeds. The Speeds were an illustrious family in Louisville’s early years. (distant kin of mine). Was it JOSHUA Speed (of Louisville) who was very close friends of Abe Lincoln? (Interesting how Lincoln maintained friendships in Ky throughout his life).

    Wonder how Mary Speed (above) ended up in Illinois, same as Abe did. Wonder what the allure was abt Illinois at that time. Migration patterns, also as connected to genealogy, are of huge interest to me. Anybody else?

Any thoughts?
