Can someone please help this researcher? Please respond directly to them,
but cc me, so I will know if the request was answered, ok? Thanks!
Hi I need to ask a big favor. I am trying to look at a page of the 1930
Lawrence Co, ILL census on Ancestry.com. Every other page is viewable
except that page. It comes up blurred and will not clear up. I emailed
Ancestry.com but they are no help. If you have the 1930 census for Lawrence
county, please look on Lawrence/Bridgeport Township, it will be on the next
page after sheet 2B and before sheet 3B. I don't know why the previous
clear sheet is numbered 2B and the next sheet after the one I need is
numbered 3B but it is. The sheet numbers I refer to are in the upper right
corner of the page.
What I need is the records for Edgar Sharrett, his wife and children. I
only need the names, sex and ages.
If you can help, thanks so much,

When I wrote my thank-you letter to Dennis I never dreamed there would such diverse opinions. But I am glad to see the activity on my Clay County List! This will be my last E mail concerning same.
As a matter of information to my fellow researchers, Dennis Northcutt is a Curator/Librarian at the Missouri Historical Society in St. Louis. He has lectured a number of times at the St. Louis Geni. Society, St. Louiis County Library and other local societies as well as he has had articles published in various Historical
Journals. He has been most helpful to many of us who have worked at the MHS Library in Forest Park. He knows what he is talking about.
I am sharing this information with my other Illinois Lists.
Descendant of six Clay and Wayne County Civil War Veterens
