From the Saline County, Illinois, message board:
The mother was born about 1844 to Daniel P. Wilbanks and Margaret E. Campbell, a sister to a Dr. Campbell of Equality. Wilbanks was at one point a partner with John Hart Crenshaw during the time period the school trustees controlled the saline lands and leased them to Wilbanks and Crenshaw. After Daniel died, his widow Margaret married Crenshaw's son, William T. Crenshaw, himself a widower. 

The Wilbanks and Crenshaws were mentioned letters transcribed here.
