You have, of course, ran the names of the various family members through Family Search www.familysearch.org? and you have checked Find A Grave www.findagrave.com for burials under that surname in that state?

If I wanted say John Price who married Cyntha Duggan in Arkansas and they migrated to Brown Co, IL and had their last five known children there of 11 children known to be born to them ... then I would be looking a John / Jack Price and spouse Cyntha / Cynthia / Syntha / Synthy / Cynthy (spellings do vary, so keep an eye open)

Depending on when John and Cyntha were born, there are the 1850 through 1940 census to examine for those name as well as any records in ILLINOIS for a John and a Cyntha (by whatever spelling)

And the best way to learn to use these two site is to jump right in and practice using them. It does take some careful reading of what the fields say (a field is where you enter a date or a name or a location) and if you mess up, dump out and try it again ... mistakes can be just as instructive as success

Also I looked at a number of the profiles you created -- it will be a much better genealogy if you will look for the census or death / marriage / birth / burial / divorce records at for instance familysearch.org and use that citation provided by familysearch.org as the source for the information you have provided. 

Here is an example I suggest

Citing this Record

"Illinois, Cook County, Birth Certificates, 1871-1940," database, FamilySearch(https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:NQRS-GDX : 18 May 2016), James Price in entry for Margery Price, 31 Jan 1904; Chicago, Cook, Illinois, United States, reference/certificate 12952, Cook County Clerk, Cook County Courthouse, Chicago; FHL microfilm 1,288,073.
