Their migration path was far more complicated than the above title suggests, but they always seemed to move en masse. This page is extremely rough, an initial attempt at putting together the pieces of the puzzle collected by researchers of several different lines.

Tradition has it that the FRIENDs moved from Elizabethville KY to southern IL with HANKS and LINCOLN relatives. The births of Thomas and Jane place this between 1833 and 1836.
The births of Jane, Harriet, and Lydia place the family in Madison Co. IL from 1836 through 1848.
Thomas Chelton FRIEND's obituary states that he "grew to manhood" in KY and then moved to Howard Co. MO. This contradicts information from other branches of the family, but may provide a clue as to where the family moved from IL.
T. C. married Malinda FILBERT on March 16, 1854 in Worth Co., MO. Their first child was born in Gentry Co., the following December.
When the Unassigned Lands were opened in 1889, several members of this family settled in Deep Fork Township, in what is now Oklahoma County, OK.
A tradition persists among the descendants of both Harriet and T.C. FRIEND that their mother's name was Catherine. Was this Elizabeth's middle name?
What happened to Charles Matthews FRIEND and his descendants? We know that he moved to Pratt, KS sometime after Florence died and before his father died.
Where did Marinda Louisa FRIEND die? Did she marry -- perhaps while the family was in Nebraska? One source places her death in 1890, but the she does not appear with her parents on the Territorial census and if she was buried in the family cemetery her grave is unmarked.
