Father's section (earlier on same page):
COUNCIL, HARDY, born Sept. 20, 1793, near Tarboro, N. C., was taken by his parents to Tennessee, thence to Barren county, Ky., and from there to White county, near Carmi, Ill. He was there married, in 1818, to Jane Hanna, who was born Feb. 25, 1795, in Kentucky.  They moved on horseback the next year to Sangamon county, Ill., arriving in August, 1819, in what is now Fancy Creek township, preceding his brother William two years. Mrs. Council carried a sack of wheat on the horse she rode, besides many household implements.  Mr. Council carried all he could in the way of tools and other articles necessary for farming.

He could only enter one piece, and he chose that with the house on it.  The land where the wheat grew was entered bv another person, who never cultivated it, but allowed a growth of young cottonwood trees to start on it, which has made quite a grove, that can be seen for several miles; many of the trees are more than two feet in diameter each. Mr. Council and Robert McClelland came together, and they cut an ample supply of grass, and stacked it for their horses and cattle. They knew nothing of the danger of prairie fires, and before they were aware of the importance of protecting it, their hay was all burned. They kept their stock alive by cutting down elm trees, so that they could eat the buds. Mr. and Mrs. Council had seven sons born at that place, two of whom died in infancy. Of the other five ___

Mrs. Jane Council died March 30, 1863, and Hardy Council died July 26, 1873, both in Sangamon county, Ill.
