He's my 3xGgrandfather who may have been born in VA or WVa. He died very young and had 3 children with his wife, Isabelle Long. I did find the guardianship papers at the Records office in Danville, IL. I also found land records for him in Danville, IL. However, I have never been able to find parents or siblings across the many genealogy sites out there. Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you.

Hello Nannette,

David was born in Iowa according to the cert. of death of his son Benjamin:

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S3HY-DTN7-X95

Benjamin's two brothers were D. W. and Wm. M.

D. W. got married on 1863: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XRPD-MWP

Wm. M. got married on 1902: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XJN6-519

I hope the information above helps in your search.
I'm not real sure about the informants information. He is not a member of the family at all. Also, Isabelle Long was born in West Virginia in Kanawha City, Kanawha County. So I'm pretty sure this is just an informant filling in spaces on the certificate.

Thank you for looking this information up for me.

D.W. is the son of William David Stilwell and Rhoda Parr

Wm. M. is actually William David the son of David & Izabelle.

I already have this information, but appreciate the time and effort you took in helping me out. But I'm still not able to find David Stilwell born bet 1808-1811 nor any of his siblings or parents.
Nannette,

D. W.'s parents were David and Isabel Stillwell according to the record of marriage and Rhoda Parr his spouse.

Could both of the records of marriage be related to the same son of David and Isabel?. That is to say, would Rodha be his 1st. wife and Berillis Curry his 2nd. wife?
