SEEHORN, John G BEAN, Almira 12/16/1852 Adams
BEAN, Charles SEAHORN, Josephine 01/31/1858 Adams
Almira BEAN and Charles BEAN are siblings.  Can't find Eli's marriages, and Adams County (1825-1900) is in the database.  Are the patron submissions to the IGI wrong as to location?

Listed four lines below Elihu R. SEEHORN, who is two lines below James M. SEEHORN.  Of the three, only James is indexed.

3.  1850 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com; Image #7-8 of 23 mis-linked to Image #9, p. 87A):  Town of Fall Creek, Adams Co., IL, Roll M432_97, pp. 86A-86B, 55/57, enumerated 26 Nov 1850, official enumeration date 1 Jun 1850 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):

A bracket connects Mary and Ellen with the word, "twins."  William HIGGINS is probably Margaret's father.  Listed next to widow Mary SEEHORN (æ 65, b. TN), who is probably Eli's mother.

Eli appears to have been enumerated twice, apparently because he had a second abode in town which he could well afford!  (See next Source.)

Moses M. BEAN and Margaret Josephine BEAN are our subjects' grandchildren, whose mother, Josephine (SEEHORN) BEAN, has apparenly died.  There doesn't appear to be any family connection to Theodore CUPP.
