Looking for relatives of William Hathaway & his wife Mary Elizabeth "Lizzie" Robertson (Robinson). In 1900 Wm. Hathaway was a Hotel Landlord in Sandoval, Il. He is shown as a neighbor of John Robertson, Lizzie's father, on the 1900 census for Sandoval. In 1910 Wm. Hathaway was City Marshal of Sandoval. They had a large family: Halvern "Hally", Catherine Louise my gg grandmother (b. 1886), Clare wife of Karl Moody, Fay & Lavon. Catherine Louise married James E. Burke, a railroad man ca. 1907 and had my grandfather William Edward Burke born Sept. 1908. James E. Burke was born in Portsmouth, Ohio in 1884. Don't know what ever happened to Jasmes Burke as Catherine later remarried to James Ernest Richard (b. Sandoval 1885) son of Joseph Franklin Richard and Mariann Susan Smith. If you are related or have some information on these families I would like to talk to you. Thanks, Skip Warren

My ggf and ggm, Wilhelm and Caroline ZACHARIAS MUELLER came to IL, near Farina in 1872. They came from Siegen, Westfalen, Purssia, where his father was Johann Englebert MUELLER. I believe they came to IL because of some MUELLER relatives there. (In Prussia the name was spelled Muller with an umlaut over the U.) They moved to ND where my gm, a daughter named Maria married Louis MISCHE. Recently I came in possession of an old photo album with several pictures from Eclipse Studio in Kinmundy, IL and some from Lynder Studio in Monee, IL. They look about 1890 to 1900 vintage. Are there still some Mueller relatives in IL, and if so, perhaps I could email/scan the pictures to them for ID.

We have been looking for Harold for many years. Harold was a musician who left home to pursue he love of music as his father was totally against this profession and Harold felt he had to leave. he left at home a wife and 2 children, a boy, Harold, Jr. and a daughter Madelyn who married a sailor either right before the end of WWII or right after. Harold's father was Stephen Cilley Currier, Jr. and Mary Eliza Evans from Everett, Massachusetts. Harold was born June 21, 1891 in Everett, Massachusetts.Harold obtained his Social Security card in California before 1951. Harold had a brother, Allen Dale Currier, an artist who also delayed his career in art till later in life. Allen was my grandfather. Allen died in 1976 in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Hoping someone out there in Marion County will recognize the name and my story. This has been a family mystery we would love to solve. Thank you in advance. jinny
