I am searching for information about my great-grandfather Ludwig KLEINHAUS
who emigrated from Germany with his family in 1883. The family settled in
Franklin Grove, Ill. Unfortunately both father and mother (Dorthy STEIGLE Kleinhaus)
died in an accident a few years later and the four children were sent to the
Nachusa Orphanage. The children were Marie (my grandmother), Margaret, Karl,
August was born in 1886, so I'm thinking the accident (train?) happened
between 1886 and 1900.
I have been in touch with August's grandchildren, but they have no clue about
I would be grateful for any help the listers can give me.

Solomon Dierdorff of Franklin Grove died in 1898 in his grocery and dry
goods store. When did he open his store? What was the name of his store?
Cornelius George, husband of Caroline Evans George, of Ashton Township died
in 1885. Where would I find the genealogy of his George ancestors? I would
like to know the name and birthplace of the first George in his family line
to immigrate to America.
Thank you to the nice person who sent me a letter replying to my question
about Caroline Evans George.

Seeking information on any member of this family, their ancestors or descendants. Florian Walter's first child in the U.S. was Rosalinda Walter, my GreatGrandmother, who was born on 16 May 1857 in Sublette, Lee, Illinois. It is possible other children were born there and the family resided there for some time. I don't know, but below is everything I know: Florian Walter was born 30 Apr 1823 in M�rsch, Karlsruhe, Baden. He married Magdalena Burkart on 17 May 1847 in that country and they had three children there: (1) Augusta, who died in infancy in Germany (2) Johannes Walter, born 18 Aug 1847 in M�rsch and (3) Maria Anna Walter, born 29 Apr 1850 in M�rsch.
Florian with his wife and two children: Johannes age 4 and Anna age 1, immigrated to the U.S. in 1851. The first information following their arrival is about 6 years later when my Great Grandmother was born in Sublette, Lee, Illinois on 16 May 1857. My records indicate there were four more children born to Florian and Magdalena - location of their births is undetermined: (1) Frank Walter, born 1860 (2) Michael Walter, born 1862 (3) Caroline Walter, born 1864 (4) Wilhelm, born 1869.
Any information including where I might check on a possible obituary, marriage licenses of the children would be most appreciated. Thank you for any help you can give me.

According to an excerpt from the Lee County Cemetery Records, Caroline Evans
George died 23 May 1889 and is buried at a cemetery in Ashton Township.
1. Is she the wife of Cornelius George who died 9 August 1885?
2. Was Caroline a resident of Lee County when she died? I ask this question
because when I requested copies of her "Estate Heirships, Inventories,
Wills, and Final Reports" from the Lee County Circuit Clerk, I was told
there was no estate for Caroline Evans George.
Yes Ashton has a library. Not sure exactly what is in it though. The Lee
County Genealogical Society may have a cemetery book for Ashton. The
Cemetery isn't very big if it's only a few names I wouldn't mind taking
digital pic's for you. Let me know.

Does anyone know if Ashton has a library?
If they do, are there city directories available there?
I'm also looking for the curator of the Ashton cemetery. I have family buried there.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
