    • Name, birth & death dates from Patty Skaggs, www.tribalpages.com/tribes/pfskaggs.

      Patty Skaggs e-mail read: My information for Mary Jane Carner was taken from information that was copied from my grandmother's King Family Bible.I believe that Harriet (Montgomery) Flegle, sister to Emma Jane Montgomery (my great-grandmother) was the person that copied the entries from the bible. My Aunt Louise (my dad's youngest sister) in Indiana scanned and emailed to me when I was doing my research for the DAR for my Patriot John Thomas Brooks." Inasmuch as this Bible is a primary source and Patty's DAR application was accepted, I am considering this accurate information.

      The 1850 Census for Perry Co., IL shows the family of Joshua and Polly King and her son, William Carner. (Polly's second husband was Joshua King.)

      Posting by Jack North on GenForum.Genealogy.com, 2005:
      Polly (BROOKS) CARNER married #2 in Jackson Co,TN, Joshua John KING (07 NOV 1814 TN)-(06 JAN 1881 IL) on or about 25 DEC 1836.Her dates as shown in cemetery records were (28 APR 1812 TN)-(31 MAR 1891 IL).Polly and Joshua had at least nine, and perhaps 10 children, in addition to the children named above. You might find more information by browsing the CAMPBELLsurname board in this forum.

      Although Polly (BROOKS) CARNER-KING was a BROOKSdescendant I have no information at this time which might link her line to myown BROOKS ancestors. As noted elsewhere, my interest in Polly involves her 2ndmarriage, to Joshua John KING, who was a step-son of Jemima (MAXWELL) KING,who, in turn, was a co-heir with my ancestor, Solomon MAXWELL, et alia, to theestate of one Thomas MAXWELL, late of Bedford Co, TN. Four of Thomas MAXWELL'sseven known heirs moved to IL after the 1830 US Census, but no later than 1835.After completion of the dissolution of Thomas' estate, his name-sake son, Thos,also moved to IL, this occuring in the late 1830s.

      It is considered possible that the 1st child bn to Jemima (MAXWELL)KING, namely Thomas M KING (bn ca 1823) may have been delivered in the State ofKY. Jemima's husb, Jno KING, was known to have traveled frequently between TNand IL in the 1830s. However, Jemima's next five children appear to be nativesof Bedford Co, TN. Her last two known children were born in Perry Co, IL. She and Jonathan were last found in an 1865 Illinois State Census, at which time they were residing yet in Perry Co. That is my last record of them.
