Dear Marie,

Here are the census records you requested, and one marriage for the
couple with whom Lafayette Sallers is living in 1860:
(Jackson, Thomas  md. Sullens, Eliza, Brown County, IL,  8 Mar1853 Book
A&B,  lic# 000002) I believe this marriage may
be Sallers, rather than Sullens. In our years of working with Brown
County surnames we have never seen the name Sullens,
and it does seem very likely that Lafayette and the other siblings would
be in their older sister's home. Also note that "Mrs. E."
is born in Missouri, as are the Sallers siblings.

We have found some interesting material on this couple in the Cemeteries
of Brown County book. It appears Thomas Jackson
was murdered Oct. 1, 1861. The ages of Thomas and his wife differ
somewhat from the census, but that is very common, and
the cemetery record would be more accurate.

NOTE: Cemeteries of Brown County, IL p. 45, Hulett Cemetery:

    "Thomas Jackson, age 25, who is buried (Hulett Cem) was murdered in
LaGrange (Brown County) in 1861 by an individual
named Pleasant Redick. Jackson seemed to have been quite a bad character
and a dispute came about because of the
proposed bringing of some of his friends to a dance."

Thomas Jackson (d. 1 Oct 1861, age 25 yrs)
Eliza Jackson (d. 5 Oct 1865, age 26 yrs)

No mention is found of what happened to the couple's two sons after
their deaths.

There are other Thomas Jacksons in the cemetery book, but none match the
age.

I hope these will be of help to you. Please let me know if we can be of
any further assistance.

Laurie Huffman

Cemeteries of Brown County, IL., page 45, Hulett Cemetery: Thomas JACKSON, (died 1 Oct, 1861, age 25 yrs.) Eliza JACKSON (died 5 Oct. 1865, age 26 yrs)

No mention is found of what happened to that couple's two sons after their deaths.

I found this information in an old History of Schuyler County, Illinois: In November 1861, the grand jury returned an indictment against Pleasant REDICK for the murder of Thomas JACKSON. It seems Thomas JACKSON attacked Pleasant REDICK at his boarding house during a dance, when a fight broke out, over a dispute between the two men after JACKSON brought some of his friends to a dance. ( LaGrange, Brown County, Illinois ). Pleasant REDICK drew a knife and stabbed Thomas JACKSON, killing him instantly. Mr. REDICK was found guilty of manslaughter, sentenced to confinement in the penitentiary for his entire life. However, after serving a few years he was pardoned.
