My great grandmother, Margaret Hetherington married Sylvester PETTICREW
in 1876 in Amboy, IL
She had siblings: Melinda, Cora, Lucy and Joe.
Thus far we have been unable to learn the names of her parents. We
believe Margaret was born in Canada, her father having come over at an
early age from England (possibly Scotland or Northern Ireland).
Does anyone know of a Hetherington family in Amboy in that time frame?
If we could determine the given name of her father it would be so
Thanks to all for your cnsideration.
Peter BRODE was born in Cattaraugus County, New York, on the 7th of April 1836. At the age of seventeen years he moved with his parents and located in Lee County, Illinois, where he remained, engaged in farming two years. In 1855 he became on of the pioneers of Canton Township, Fillmore County, MN
father was Samuel BRODE born about 1800 in PA
mother was Christina ? born about 1800 in PA
I am trying to find out:
1. if his parents stayed in Lee county
2. any siblings, names and ages
3. where they were located
any help would be greatly appreciated....
There was the Northern Illinois Normal School, a teachers college, on the
south side of the river, near First St and College Av. It was associated
with the teacher's college in Normal, IL, now Illinois State University.
There was also the Steinman Institute on the north side, on the far east end
of town. I think it was a business college. Charles Walgreen, founder of
the drugstore chain, went to business college in Dixon just before the turn
of the century too. I believe the Lee County Genealogical Society would
have articles on the collegs in their article file.

Thanks for the reply, Wayne. Looks like we're in the same boat. If only we

Hi Pat! Yes, there was a college in Dixon. My father attended there. He
took up bookkeeping, and I often heard him speak of it as Dixon Business
College. I wish he were here to tell us more. That must have been back in
about 1915 or 16.
Maybe this is a good time to ask my question. Does anyone know about Dixon
College? I believe it was a commercial college. My father-in-law finished
a course there in 1911. Where could I find some information about this
school? I have a picture of the class, a pennant and his diploma.
Thank you for your help.
That is the cemetery and thank you very much for the offer. I have
checked the Dixon court house and saw his death certiicate. He is
definitely in Oakwood cemetery but he is in the Old Catholic part and
those records were destroyed by fire according to Charlotte who takes
care of the cemetery office.
I spent alot of time there last summer crawling around trying to find
his grave. :>
I have checked with the Jones funeral home also but there are not any
records for him. Too old!! They have taken care of all my relatives in
Dixon. One of these days I will find his grave. :>
Again, Thank you very much for the kind offer!! I am only about 1 1/2
hours from Dixon.

I am still trying to find any relatives of Smith H. Johnson early
pioneer of Lee, Co. His children were Rufus, Truman, Abner, Alphonzo,
Smith, Calvin, Benjamin F., Emeline (Allen) Johnson and Ellen (DeWitt)
Johnson. Smith died in 1873. His wife Ziba K.(Tompkins) Johnson died in
1867. Smith married Elizabeth Koons in about 1870.
Truman moved to Clear Lake, IA in about 1890 or so, but is buried in
Brooklyn Cem.. Truman's and Mary (Melugin) Johnson children were Harvey
who moved to Armstrong, IA, Ada who married Nels Bean, I beleive she is
buried in Clear Lake, IA, Rosa who married William Stainbrook and had
one child Harry before she died. William remarried and had 3 or 4 other
children. George who died in Mineapolis and married a Kattie , Walter C.
who married Avaretta Bushey, Frank who was living in Grimes, Ia in 1900
and married Bessie, Maude who married a Williams, Wilbur who married
Fannie Sherbon and Dolly who I don't know if she married. I would be
