William Coates Smith
I am researching the family of William Coates & Sarah Jane (Liming) Smith. William was born in Burlington County, New Jersey 24 Feb 1804. Sarah was born 8 Dec 1803 in Monmouth County, New Jersey. Their children are, John B., Louisa P, Charles S. K., William F, Emily J, Laura J. There was possibly a Thomas or a Martha as well, Not sure on that. John was born in Burlington, NJ and the others were born in Wayne Township, Warren Co, Ohio where they are in the 1840 census. About 1857 they move to Henry County, IL.
I have most of the information after they get to Illinois but need to find William's parents and place of birth. Census records state that William and Sarah's parents were born in New Jersey. There is a lot of information on the Limings with various spellings but I have found nothing on Williams folks.
