The information on Matilda Heilman is correct as far as her parentage is concerned.  Eli Hileman was indeed her father and he did die of small pox in the Civil War.  Mary Ann Reitzel Hileman was her mother. However, Matilda was born on the family farm in Union County, Illinois on March 11,1958, lived her whole life in Anna, Illinois, and died there on June 29, 1930.  She never married so has no descendents. The family spelled their name "Hileman".  Matilda is buried in St. John's cemetery outside Jonsboro, Illinois along with her parents Eli and Mary Ann Hileman (nee Reitzel)and siblings Frances and Alphonso Hileman.  Her other siblings were Jerome, Philetus, and Jairus who was my father.  Matilda was my "Aunt Mattie." If there appears to be a generation missing here, it is because my father married so late in life. I, myself, am elderly.  I was very pleased and astonished to find your information about Matilda in the genealogy Genera Forum message board. Thank you.  Marguerite Hileman Johnson.
