Sorry, Joyce about the private response. The only reason I have is it's easier. I can not click on reply to the list as apparently it messes everything up and rootsweb tells me the script is not right or something. So, sometimes it's easier to e-mail direct. No other reason.

Arbell Eliza R. Neber is the daughter of James Neber and Mary Caroline Rushing. She was born 20 Oct. 1856 in Benton County, Tennessee. She married Calvin M. Escue on 27 Sep 1877 in Jackson County, IL.The name on their marriage license is Eliza R Nebughr. The children I have listed for them taken from the 1900 cs is Thomas J, Dec. 1879, Mary E May 1884 and James E Mar 1888. I believe she died giving birth to James E. as her death date is 30 Mar 1888. (I have a picture of Eliza R. when she was about 14-a photocopy.
Just now going through my files I find a letter written by Arbell Escue, written shortly before her death. It reads:
Oakville, Union Co. Ills Feb 25th 1888
Dear Mother
I take the opportunity of dropping you a line to let you know that I am not well. I have bin up and down now for two weeks With the Nieuralgied and bad cold I have had a verry severe cough but my cough is some better now The ballance are all well Hoping this may come safe To hand and find you all well
I Remain As Ever
your Daughter
Arbell Escue


Who are W. Escue and Marie Escue - children who died young? Of the first marriage?

He then married Nettie J. Hopkins dau of Marion F. Hopkins and I have children listed as Harriet A., Nov. 1898, Eva L. 1902, Bonnie M 1906 and Cleo 2 Oct. 1907. Cleo died May 1984 in Carbondale, Jackson Co., IL

James Neber is a brother to my gg-grandfather, Simpson Neber.

That is about all I have as my research was mainly on the Neber/Nebughr line.

Sincerely,
Betty Capps

Betty- Hi Cuz!
Calvin Monroe Escue was 1/2 brother to my ggf Edmond Green Escue. Edmond's
parents were William Edmond Escue & Margaret Smith. Your Mary was Mary
Damron, by the way-- William E. 2nd wife. William E. Escue's father was also
a William Escue, moth, Nancy Jane McDonald.

Can you tell me any more about the Calvin Escue line? I'm including an
outline of what I have on that line. Also, do you know who's child George W.
Damron, gs to William Escue in the 1880 census was? Obviously must have been
a daughter who married a Damron (probably related to Mary Damron, Wm's 2nd
wife) Also, did you notice that Margaret Escue, William Escue's daughter had
2 children, at least 1 of them by John B. Phillips? I think he may have been
a step brother, from Mary's first marriage. Also, I believe he was married
at least part of that time. Interestingly enough, William did not kick her
out, as so many would have done back then. Tells us something about him,
doesn't it?

I have been unable to find an obit for Edmond Green Escue, who died 2/!3/1918
in Johnson Co. He married Sophronia Isabel Coleman.

One difference I notice on this list, is people answer privately, instead of
on the list. Is this a rule with this one? Or just the way it happens?
Unless it's a personal response, the other lists I'm on are all on the list.
