Hello from Alaska...
My great-grandparents--Patrick and Ellen (nee Hogan) Leahy--gave birth to
nine of their ten children while residing in Illinois communities from
LaSalle to Kankakee to Amboy along the Illinois Central Railway between 1875
and 1895. He died at Amboy in 1902.
The children were:
Nell b. April 1876
Anna b. 1878 [may have died shortly after birth]
Marie/Mary b. March 1880
John Patrick b. 1881
James Edward b. Dec. 1884
Katherine Bernadette b. April 1887
Francis/Frank b. September 1889
George Joseph b. March 1892
Florence F. b. February 1895
Can you help me locate their birth records?
