If you are from Jefferson County we are most likely kin to each other... I had to go as far as Arkansas to marry someone I wasn't kin to hehe... Then I find out my wifes family all lived in Fairfield area of Illinois back in the oil field days - so who knows hehe... Family names are Braddys-Chesneys-Johnson-Johnstons-Williams-Wells-Allen to name a few... Dad's family is all buried at Mt Zion near the Wayne County line and Mom's family is all buried at Kirk at Ina Illinois...
