Inman Family ResearchBy
The earliest record I have of my Inman family is in Rock Island County, Illinois in 1883. Ammi William "Will" Inman married Kittie Deyoe on March 14, 1883 in Rock Island County. They lived in Cordova and Moline in Rock Island County. They eventually moved west to Iowa and Washington. My research has focussed on Illinois and Pennsylvania. Although I have not found my Inmans in Illinois or Pennsylvania, perhaps this information would be helpful to others.

Worthington Inman, My Grandfather, Where Was He From 1845 to 1910? Resa Inman Milner P.O. Box 060262, Palm Bay, FL 32906
I knew from family stories that my father, Paul Inman, had lived in Missouri, I located him with his father, Worthington Inman and his mother, Clara Ohde Inman, in the 1910 census in Joachim Township (Sulphur Springs), Jefferson Conty, Missouri. I later obtained a death certificate for Worthington who died in St. Louis, MO in 1912 from lockjaw. According to his death certificate, Worthington was born in Peoria, Illinois in January 1845. His father is listed as William Inman of Scotland and his mother as Matilda Green of Tennessee. In researching Peoria and surrounding counties 1850-1870, and the 1900 census, I cannot find any trace of my family. The one and only time I can locate any known member so my family is in the 1910 census! Where did William and Matilda go after Worthington was born? Were they just passing through Peoria? I have a letter addressed to Wm. Inman, Agent of Metropolitan Accident Association, Peoria, Illinois dated 11 Mar 1896, but all research on that has led to deadends also.. Supposedly, Worthington had two brothers, Obadiah and Ezekiel. If so, where are their families now? Where was Worthington from 1845 until 1910? Did he have another wife, where their other children besides my father, Paul? According to my birth certificate, Paul was born in 1904. However research in that locality aso was fruitless. Was Paul born in Iowa? Both of my parents have been deceased for a long time and I have no one buy my immediate sibling son my fathers side. After four years of research all I have is a lot of unanswered questions. Does anyone know the answers? If so, I would love to hear from you.
