Not everyone in the state supported the war and there were calls for secession in Southern Illinois several residents. However, the movement for secession soon died after the proposal was blocked.

    History: The American Dabneys are mostly descended from Théodore Agrippa d'Aubigné (1552–1630), a French Huguenot poet and soldier, whose grandson Agrippa Théodore emigrated with his children to England in the early 17th century. It were Agrippa Théodore's sons and grandsons, including a son and a grandson named Cornelius, who established the Dabney families in North America in the 17th and early 18th centuries. Théodore Agrippa d'Aubigné is listed in the (US) National Huguenot Society's register of qualified Huguenot ancestors, while in the similar register of the Huguenot Society of America his sons Cornelius, Jean, and Robert d'Aubigné, the actual settlers in North America, are listed as Huguenot ancestors.
