__________
Notes:
Dr. Lorenzo Rathbone was educated in the State of New York and emigrated to Illinois about the year 1822.  He continued in the practice of medicine and surgery until 1878 when, from the effects of impaired vision and the effects of old age, he was compelled to desist, having been actively engaged in his profession for fifty-six years.

Soon after Lorenzo and Permelia were married, an interesting disclaimer was placed in the Illinois Gazette on March 19, 1825: "I hereby forbid all persons harbouring or trusting my wife, Pamela (sic), on my account, as I will pay no debts for her contracting after this date, February 16, 1825."
