Descendants of Charles E. BARBER, born 9 Aug 1836 in Oneida County, New
York, and who died in Watseka on 26 Apr 1918. His family moved from Windsor, Berkshire
County, MA, to Oneida County, New York in the 1820s, and located there in Lee, Lee
Center and Taberg. In New York, his family consisted of his father, Hiram Barber,
mother Lorinda KELLOGG , and siblings Czarrina (Zarina?), Quincy, Lorenzo,

and 2 brothers where they were farmers. Charles E. Barber came to Crescent City,
Illinois in 1870. He was first in charge of the R. R. office and afterward engaged
in the lumber business for five years. He then was in the flax seed and farm implement
business. He was postmaster at Crescent City and also served as township treasurer,
justice of the peace and assessor during the decade in which he resided there. He
moved to Watseka in the year 1880 and was closely identified with the politics
of Middleport township, holding many township officest. He was sheriff of Iroquois
county three terms and county treasurer one term. He was a Master Mason, and was
a member of Mary Commandery of Watseka Knights Templar. In 1860, he married Adaline
DICKERSON of Rome, N.Y., and they had three children. He was survived by one

CURRY: When I was at the Courthouse I did find my greatgrandparents Robert and Nancy
(IREY) CURRY in the 1860 census. No problem. However, I noted a William and
Margaret Curry in the 1860 census, and a William Curry and family in the 1830
census, and an Isaiah Curry in the 1830 census. Was the William Curry in the
1860 census (died of pneumonia in the Civil War) the son of the William in the
1830 census? Another source has William being the son of Andrew Curry, and
being from Washington County, PA. Or could it be that the William Curry in the 1830
census is a brother of Andrew, or is there no connection? If I had checked out the
1840 and 1850 census records I may have got my answer as these would have listed
names of the children. The 1830 census just shows that there was one male child between
the age of 0-5 which would fit the William of the 1860 census, as he was born in
1827.R. Dunn firstname.lastname@example.org

He died on April 22, 1906 in Grand Island, and is buried there. He was already a

George got around a lot. Would love to know his story. His occupation listed on the

KAISER I am looking for information
on Emil and Anna (HEUBERGER) KAISER. They lived in Cissna Park prior to moving
to Milford, In in 1904. They had 11 children. I am looking for birth dates for the
oldest child Ida , and any
other infomation on her siblings or parents.
The other siblingsare :Sarah,William,John,Joe,Benjamin, Anna Mary, Pricilla, Bertha,Emil,
and Ezra. Jeffery L. Peterson email@example.com
The GNIS does not show any cemeteries in the Cissna Park area , what are the
closest cemeteries to this town. There was a Polish immigrant family named KNOPINSKI ,
that settled in this area around 1886. One son known to have stayed in the area was
named Stanis . We think his father was named John and is known to have been
alive in the early 1920's. If anyone knows what cemetery these people are buried
in, or has any other info on this family, I would certainly appreciate any help.
We believe there are only three remaining descendants of John Knopinski . The
spelling is anglecized and we are not sure of the original spelling. Thanks.

Looking for information on Danish immigrants to Kankakee/ Iroquois County - Kankakee,
Chebanse, and Clifton areas. Two sisters, Maren and Jensine Christiane LANGFELDT ,
both immigrated to the US in the 1887-1889 timeframe. They were both married to other
Danes in Kankakee, Maren to Jens Peter CHRISTENSEN, and Jensine Christiane
to Larsen Christian JEPSEN. According to their marriage licenses, the sisters
changed (or immigration changed) their last name to LONGFIELD. The sisters and Lars
Christ JEPSEN, all came from Haderslev County, in Denmark. It is thought that Jens
Peter CHRISTENSEN came from Aarhus County, Denmark... both men immigrated in about
the same timeframe. Maren and Christiane also had a brother named Hartvig
LANGFELDT and a sister Marie Nicoline LANGFELDT . We think Marie may have
remained in Denmark/Germany, but know that Hartvig immigrated to the US, and even
listed his destination as Kankakee County, IL. He ended up as a sheep rancher in
Montana, under the name Harry P. LONGFIELD, married to a woman named Louella ?
was from Minnesota. They had a daughter, Danna, also born in Minnesota.
There are still JEPSENS and CHRISTENSENS in Kankakee and Iroquois County. I would
love to get any information anyone has on either the ancestors or descendants of
any of these people. According to family story, they all immigrated to Kankakee to
be near relatives. Possibly the surname SORENSEN may be related. Thanks in
advance! I have a lot of info to share.

Information on Frank & Joseph C. McKee : Immigrated from Ireland and settled
in Chebanse probably in the 1850's. There was probably a 3rd brother, John Devere
McKee but he may have settled elsewhere.
Joseph (my g.grandfather)

Returned home and married Isabelle (Belle) WILLSON who was born in Corinth,
Ontario, Canada. Their first son, Bert, was born in Chebanse. In 1878 they
left Illinois and settled in Colorado. Isabelle's brother, Joe Willson moved
to Colorado with them but seeminly left other family members in Chebanse. Their mother
Anne VEITCH WILLSON moved to Colorado in her later years. Frank was
a part owner in a mercantile store, McKee & Bard in Chebanse with a branch
in Cabery. His wife's name was Jennie and they had at least one child,
a son named Ray . In his letters he spoke often of selling out and moving west
but I don't know if he ever did. . Would like to know if there is any record of the
McKee & Bard Mercantile.

OGLE Am looking for any information on a Harry OGLE born ca 1867-69
who was the father of a child Horace M. Augustine born to my grandmother Antoinette
"Nettie" PONSLER AUGUSTINE/AUGENSTEIN on November 17, 1896 or if anyone
knows what happened to the baby Horace. My grandmother had been adopted by the Augenstein
family in 1873 when her mother died in childbirth at the age of 17, and unmarried
herself. No information has ever been known of the father of Antoinette Ponsler.
Her mother was Caroline Ponsler, daughter of Solomon & Chloe Malinda (nee
BRECKENRIDGE) Ponsler. The baby Horace M. Augustine was
born in Piatt County at Alms House. My grandmother was admitted by the Dr in September
1896, had the baby in November 1896 and discharged in January 1897. The father
of the baby was Harry Ogle according to the birth record I have. The baby
was named on the Alms House records, but not on the birth record but all the other
information was correct.I don't know what happened to the baby. On the release from Alms House, the baby is listed on the
4th line under my grandmother. Sounds like they may have left separately? In
September 1897 in Onarga my grandmother married a George Bertrom ROBERTS ;
I do have the marriage record. What really gets me though is while she
was at ALMS HOUSE the girl listed directly under her was a ROBERTS from
Onarga. I like to think this other unwed girl took a liking to my grandmother, introduced
her to a relative (brother maybe?) and they married. They left Onarga and
eventually wound up in Wyoming. She later divorced him and married my grandfather.
They (she & her second husband) were the parents of my father - their only child.
I do not believe my grandfather every knew of this first baby. I would
very much like to find what happened to this baby, as he would be my father's
half brother and an uncle to me. His children would be my cousins. . I did not know
of this baby until two years ago when I got my grandfather's Spanish American War
Records, and followed through on my grandmother's first marriage (which was in the
records but of course I had known of it and they never had any children in their
8 years of marriage) and wrote for the records and the clerk back there (in Illinois)
brought some things to my attention and of course I could not leave well enough alone,
I had to write and find out "why" and this is what I found.

WILKEN -- Ashkum Cemetery records?? There is a marker for my grandfather's uncle,
Hermann Janssen Wilken in the Ashkum cemetery, with his name and dates 1828-1872. However, there is a bit of a mystery surrounding it. He was born Aug.13,
1828, in Ostochtersum, Ostfriesland, Germany, and came to the US in 1854 with his younger brother, Schwittert Wilken (and a cousin, Hermann Claassen, and
his wife and child ). They all lived near Peoria until about 1870-72. Hermann never married, but lived at least part of the time with Schwittert and his growing
family. Schwittert came to Iroquois County some time between 1870-72 . (They were both in Woodford County in the 1870 census). There are two "family stories"
about what happened to Hermann: 1. One story says that he died in 1872 and is buried in the Ashkum cemetery -- thus, the marker. We even have a "weather report"
for the night he died .. it was especially stormy. 2. Another story says that he disappeared about 1872 and was never heard from again. Many years later two of his
nephews -- who were born after 1872, so never knew him -- decided that there should be some trace of their uncle and went together and had the marker put in the cemetery.
One of these men was my grandfather, a later Herman Wilken. This would have probably been in the early - mid 1900's. The marker DOES look too new to have been there since
1872. My problem is that there aren't many records from 1872. As I understand it, Ashkum didn't have a Lutheran church then .. I've looked in the Danforth church records,
but found nothing. DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THERE ARE RECORDS OF BURIALS IN THE ASHKUM CEMETERY from that time (or other "business" done there later, but not
involving a funeral -- and presumably not mentioned in church records)?? I asked at the Iroquois County Historical Society in Watseka, but they had no record of him
in their card file. Any suggestions are MOST welcome.
