Mark Dempsey and Edward Dempsey


Mark Edward Dempsey

Two of the five Dempsey brothers who first came to Adams County back in the late 1850's or early 1860's. It is thought that Mark farmed in Fowler and Edward farmed in Ellington. It is also thought that Mark did not own his land, but he and his brother Patrick, wored for and lived on other Dempsey farms. The old Dempsey farm in Mendon was Patrick Demsey's home, but he didn't own the land.

  • ILGenWeb

    ILGenWeb isn’t an ordinary genealogy website. Ordinary websites are those where text and sometimes pretty pictures are present, but trying to get in touch with a real person to help you with your research… impossible. The strength of ILGenWeb is its many volunteers, some of whom have spent over a decade assisting others with their Illinois research.
