Thanks for letting me know about the mistake. This just came with some more
addresses so sending it out again. I wrote that the hobby was a fast growing
one that was giving many more people pride in their country and ancestors and
how much history we were learning and that this was our last resort in many
cases to learn maiden names of women. Also emphasized what a handicap it was
to so many of the new friends I have made who are housebound and on low
budgets and that this will greatly decrease their ability to participate in
their new found friendships and hobby.
For those not knowing. President was spelled wrong in the one I sent before
so unless you retyped it it bounced. Jerilyn

Is anyone familiar with the BERRY family who lived in
Paw Paw, Lee County, IL around 1895-1926.
Thank you for any assistance it will be greatly appreciated.

I am researching a William Dempster that was born in Scotland 25 Apr 1820.
He was married to a Nancy J. _____. He was killed 31 Mar 1907 in Amboy, Lee
Co., IL on the Great Western Railroad when he was crushed between the train
and a bridge. That is the family story but it seems that he would have been
a little too old to still be working. He would have been 87 years old. He
had children, Frank b. 1851; William H. born 1864 and Libbie born 1857. The
father and the two sons are buried in Prairie Repose Cemetery in Amboy Twp.
but I can't find the death of the widow (she was alive in the 1910 census of
Lee Co., living in Amboy alone) or the daughter, Libby (I don't know her
married name). Are there death records available in Lee Co., for 1907??
Thank you for any help that you can give me!
Dear County List,
We have now entered pages for about 80 counties in Illinois, as
links to the Homepage on our website, which may be of some help to
researchers who have ancestors who were members of the Primitive Baptist
church in Illinois. The information regarding the members names comes
from a database in our library computer which is not on-line, but the
surnames serve as an index to it, to help researchers determine if they
may have connections in some of our churches. The database has been (and
is still being added to) compiled from original source documents,
including church and association records, and obituaries - many of which
are found in our shelves of bound church periodicals.
To see our website, go to our homepage:

I am a new subscriber to this list and am writing from England to ask if
anyone can assist me with a look up in the 1860 census for Lee County.
I have been told that there is an entry for a Charles MUNIKEIZER in the 1860
census and I believe that he is actually my g-grandmother's brother Charles
MUNNIKHUIZEN who emigrated to the USA from England in the 1850s.
If anyone could provide me with the information from the census I would be
extremely grateful as I do not have access to US census returns here in
The reference from the index to the Illinois 1860 census is as follows:
Any help would be very much appreciated.
Incidentally, I have been surfing the net looking for information on Lee
County and have discovered that one of the original citizens of Lee County
was John Dixon. This just happens to be the name of my husband!!
Many thanks for any help.
