Searching for whereabouts of Harmon and Julia Villingalla (Willygully) Novak from 1870
until death. They are in Randolph County IL on 1860 census but cannot find them after
that. Harmon and Julia have a son - 1860 census shows John but family says his name was
Frank James, born Nov 21 1859. Frank James Novak marries Mary Brush (Broz), daughter of
William Broz and Joseph Mraz (Raaz) in Raddle IL in early 1880's. First child, Anna
J, is born October 29 1884. At some point the family migrates from Jackson County IL to
Jonesboro/Helena Arkansas. I am trying to find death place and burial place for Harmon
Novak born about 1819 in Poland and Julia Willygully Novak born about 1837 in Buscha,
Germany. Harmon & Julia were married June 27, 1858 in Chester IL by a Catholic priest,
Rev N Perrin. Any leads will be appreciated.
