   +HISTORY OF HANCOCK CO. IL, by Robert M. Cochran et al, (Carthage,
IL): Board of Supervisors of Hancock Co., c1968, [IL Sesquincentennial
ed.]. Bear Creek twp: "It was Mr. Pike and his sons who killed the last
bear in this region, and from this, Bear Creek took its name. Uncle
Billy Pike blazed the way and left a clean trail. Uncle Billy, as he was
familiarly called, was the embodiment of honor, and of old-time
hospitality. He once said that he was the first white settler on "Bar
Creek" by two years, and, as he talked, pointed to the spot where his
first cabin was built, saying. "Right over thar by that little pint of
timber". (sent by Jim Allison)
   +HISTORY OF HANCOCK COUNTY by Thomas Gregg (Chicago: Chas. C. Chapman
& Co., 1880). Pg 467 List of early pioneers of Hancock County - 1832,
Wm. Pike & sons, Ky.; Pg 530 Chili twp. "William Pike and his sons John,
Thomas, William and JAMES, who were settlers of 1832"; Pg 548 William
Pike is also mentioned as an early settler of St. Albans twp; Pg 559 Bio
on Joseph McKenzie ... first marriage to Miss Ellen Pike, daughter of
Wm. Pike, one of the pioneers of Hancock Co. He was a native of KY &
located in Hancock Co in 1830 when it took all the men in the county to
make a jury. At one time for eight weeks he never saw the face of a
white person except those of his family; Pg 593 Harmony twp, Wm. Pike
mentioned as an early settler; Pg 608 Bear Creek twp. Elijah & John Pike
mentioned as early settlers.
   +PIONEERS OF THE PRAIRIE by Wilma Brunenn, (Astoria, IL: Printed by
Stevens Pub., 198?) pgs 634-5: "PIKE, WILLIAM - born ca 1793 in
Kentucky, married (1) Lydia -----, born 1804, she died October 19, 1839,
buried in Bethel Cemetery in Bear Creek Township. On October 21, 1850,
Mr. Pike married (2) Sarah-----born ca. 1821c she died before 1858. On
December 3, 1858 at Stillwell, Illinois, Mr. Pike married (3) Elizabeth
Stillwell. They were married by Rev. George Jackson. She died July 13,
1859, age 58 yrs. The Pike children were: 1- James, born ca 1842, 2-
Jefferson, born ca 1844, 3- Ethelene, born ca 1845, 4- Ellen (Ellie)
born ca 1847 married Joseph McKenzie, 5- Washington, born ca 1849, 6-
Anna, 7- Nellie, 8- Lige." "Uncle Billie", as he was known, came to St
Albans Township in the early 1830ís. He claimed to be the first white
man on "Bar Creek by two years". "When he was nearly 80 years old and
still longing for pioneer life, he sold the farm and went with his son -
again headed west in a covered wagon, saying he wanted to get "one more
crack at a der!" This was a few years previous to the Civil War." He had
an eye and a love for fine horses. It was not uncommon for Uncle Billy
to cut a hole in the ice and go for a swim. +CAUTION STORY+ There are
many problems with this information. The 21 Oct 1850 marriage was
William Jr., not William Sr.! Lydia Pike was selling land with her
husband in 1841 and was listed in the 1850 census. The Holdings of the
Hancock Co Genealogical Society give her burial in Bethel Cemetery, but
in 1859 age 65. A William Pike married Elizabeth A. Stillwell 15 Dec
1859 in Hancock Co., IL (VR LDS). This is William Jr. too. William Pike
married Sarah Catherine Wright on 26 Jul 1861 in Hancock Co., IL (VR LDS
noted that wife was previously married). This is proved to be William Sr
by a deed in Hancock county Volume #57. The list of children attributed
to William Sr may not all be his, if any of them are. Some of them seem
to be Elijah's (James b 1842 & Washington b 1849). Thomas had a Nellie b
1849. Ellen was married to Joseph McKenzie 13 Jul 1848, so the above
Ellen b 1847 is not the same woman. I have not been able to account for
the other Pike children listed above; Jefferson 1844, Ethelene 1845,
Anna, & Lige. Probably the most valuable clue in this bio is the
information that William might have gone pioneering with his son in his
old age. That would explain why he nor any of his sons are listed in the
Hancock Co. Probate Index. The Civil War took place between 1861-1865.
William Sr. was selling land in Dec 1862 in Hancock Co.

  +NOTE: An ELIZABETH PIKE m George W. Wedding 19 Jan 1847, Hancock Co,
IL. (CD 228) Could she also be a daughter of William & Lydia? I have
added her to the children list provisionally. See her notes.

MRS. LYDIA (???) PIKE
   I don't consider it proved quite yet that her maiden name really was
Elizabeth Lydia Coffee as has been published in the Ancestral File* at
the LDS Family History Center. James told his daughter, Lydia Pike
Arnel, that she was named after his mother Lydia. The land sales,
census, & cemetery have only Lydia. The marriage cited in the Ancestral
File has only Elizabeth. Could William have been married twice?
Elizabeth Coffee could have died young and he married a second time,
Lydia ___. I think it is important to look closely at the Hardin
families, the Pikes certainly ran in tandum with Hardins and I don't
find them with Coffees. James went to Texas to join his cousin Joe
Hardin, and I realize that 'cousin' can be a loose term. I have not
listed a maiden name for her in my database. James was born in 1822 and
Lydia was his mother. I do not know if she was also the mother of the
first three sons, therefore I have put 'before 1822' in the space for
marriage date as my estimate.
1850 Oct 19: LYDIA PIKE, died 19 Oct 1850, Wife of William Pike, In her
65th year. [Bethel Cemetery Bear Creek Twp, IL. Partial copy of Bethel
Cemetery survey sent by Fred McKenzie] [b 1786]

PROBLEM: The stone may be worn & hard to read because these two records
do not agree. Using her age & the 1860 census, I think that the 1859
date is correct. Perhaps this can be confirmed by deeds, or I could find
someone to check the stone.
