Looking for anyone who may have information on Albert Owen Brown.
Albert died in Peoria,Il. on July 20, 1920. Albert is buried in Springdale Cemetery. He was married to Minnie E. Blum. She was the daughter of Anton & Elizabeth Blum of Peoria.
I located Albert living with his in-laws on the 1920 U.S. Census in Peoria. That is all I have on him while he lived in Illinois.
Does anyone on the list know who to contact for finding Obituaries in the local paper?
Severeal of the Ketchum family you described were members of the Primitive Baptist church (actually some were in several different churches) in Peoria, Henry, Bureau and perhaps other counties in Illinois. We would be interested in the photos, or at least scans of them, for historical purposes for our Primitive Baptist Library collection. We know that some of the Ketchum family later moved to Nebraska. One was a well-known minister, whom I believe also served in the legislature. His name was Smith Ketchum, and he died in 1923. We assist people, regularly, who have Primitive Baptist ancestry. We also have a scrapbook of photos of people in the various associations throughout Illinois. Our website is below.
