Francis and Phebe Coleman Family I have come across an article about my great grandmother's sister Nellie May Coleman, in the article it states that as a child (around 1895) she was treated by a doctor in Sandoval, Illinois for worm spasm, and the prescription was Chloroform daily for a period of 6 days? When Nellie came out of this stupor she was brain damaged, the family moved to Pana, Il where she died in 1909, after being institutionalized and being kept at home in an iron cage. Most of the article is legible except for the Dr.'s name, all I can make out is Dr.....age. Apparently he became so worried over this he died. Any information about this or any of the Coleman's would be greatly appreciated. Cindy Ennen

I am looking for the sisters of Charles Wayne Hill.Born: 1915 in Mattoon. One sister lived in Centralia, in Marion Co. and the other lived in Lichfield, in Montgomery co. in 1933. Their maiden names may have been Hill or Cowger. Charles had two half brothers named James and Roscoe(I think Cowger),they lived in Mattoon, Coles Co. Charles's mother died about 1932, her name was May Nadine or Mamie (maiden name Cordes) His fathers name was Charles Hill. He died about 1929. His mother married again to a Cowger,I think. When she died the step-father married once more. I think James may have married a lady named Frieda, and was living in Mattoon as late as 1950.Roscoe may be living in Paradise Township in Mattoon. I am the only child of Charles W. Hill and would like to find relatives.
