I am seeking to find the family history of Benjamin Franklin Clarke borh July 17, 1777; died April 3, 1853 in McDonough County, Illinois; married Mary "Polly" Head on March 25, 1807 in Washington County, KY.

Father, mother, sibling are unknown.

 

If you know how, when and why they left VA for KY, and left KY for IL that would be a bonus.
