Mystery Monday | February 21, 2011 – Asahel Cleveland

Today’s mystery involves my 3rd great grandfather, Asahel Cleveland.

Asahel was born in Worthington, Hampshire Co., MA on April 6, 1793. He was the youngest child of Newcomb Cleveland and Abigail Willis. Asahel and Priscilla Benjamin married on March 7, 1815 in Pierpont, OH.

The information I have states that Asahel died in Hancock County, IL on December 5, 1845. There is an Asahel Cleveland in the 1842 Illinois Tax Index for Nauvoo, which is in Hancock Co.

I would like to know where Asahel is buried. Priscilla is buried in the Old Burying Grounds in Pierpont.

Asahel is my 3rd great grandfather.
