Hello..My ancestors Earl(Pete) and Emma DICKE MCCLINTOCK lived in Bridgeport
around the years 1919-21. I have pictures of what look like oil wells, and a
picture of Emma in her yard and in the background is a good sized cemetery,
kind of L shaped from what I can see of it, and it may be slightly on a hill.
Anyone possibly know what cemetery this may be? Also if anyone has info on the
DICKE, KOHLHORST, AND MCCLINTOCK families that lived in the area in the early
1900's, I'd be interested in you contacting me. There is going to be a
revised book on the DICKE family and I need more info on my great grandparents Lafe
KOHLHORST and Alice DICKE KOHLHORST. Also..Alice's sister Emma DICKE m. Earl
MCCLINTOCK. They had no children of their own, but raised Earl's brothers
children who where Myron MCCLINTOCK and Helen Esther MCCLINTOCK GRAY/GREY.
Desparately trying to locate any living relatives from Myron or Helen Esther.
Thanks Janine Swegles(Kohlhorst) jankohl57(a)aol.com

Dear List Members,
I am in need of assistance in locating the following information on my great aunt. I will appreciate your assistance greatly. Her information follows :
Frances Ester Ryan, born February 05, 1891 in Lawrence County, Illinois.
She was raised by her grandmother Hannah (Grant) Ryan, until 1901 when she became quite ill. Her father was Ebenezer Zane Ryan, born 1869 in Lawrence County, her mother Lydia L. (Wise) Ryan, was born September 04, 1870 in Vincennes, Indiana.
She married Fred B. Lytle on December 10, 1912, in Lawrence County. His parents were Thomas Jefferson Lytle and Araminta B. Roseburgh. Fred became a barber in Lawrenceville, and was born December 02, 1882.
She died in Dongola, Union County, Illinois during 1986. I do not know how long she lived there. However, since she grew up in Lawrence County, I imagine that an obituary was placed in the paper. Her husband died in Lawrerence County on February 07, 1954.
Their children were:
Richard Ryan Lytle born: July 07, 1913 in Illinois
Marjorie Ellen Lytle born: October 13, 1916
( there may have been more children, I just do not know)
I am seeking her and her husband's obituaries, and any and all information that someone might know or have about them.
I have written the genealogical society in Union County, and the public library three times, but I have not heard from them.
I am also seeking the e-mail address of a lady who offers assistance in genealogical queries, as I have lost her e-mail address. Her name is Young.
I will be most appreciative to anyone willing to assist me in this venture.
