There was a W.E. Brookings Store in DuQuoin in the late 1800s. I'm not sure

I have come across some old newspaper clippings that I have no dates on and
no idea of which newspaper they are from.
The one I believe some one may be interested in is a group photo that has
"Citizens Pose for Photographer."
The names are listed in rows and states it is in the old W.E. Brookings
building in the office of Brookings.
Because it is large and will have to be on a file I am asking that if anyone
is interested in it please email me directly and I will send a file to you.
I have been working with a fellow FLEMING/NEVILLE/BALLARD/CRANE/TERRY
researcher from Northern Illinois for more than 6 hours today. Together we
have shared a lot of information on this large family and the connections.
Legal Documents, Certificates, headstone & cemetery information, and more.
We have found we are still lacking information in the Logan CRANE & Sidney
The families cross between Franklin and Perry Counties like the FLEMING and
NEVILLE families so that is why I am sending this out to both counties.
Does anyone have these names in their surname list?
Can you tell us more about one or the other?
She will not return to this area until spring but we hope to have a few more
days to research next time and more information in from the areas we were
To all those in Franklin County who have been sending the KIRK info--I have
read most of it this evening. It is very helpful Thank-you all for passing
on your knowledge of yet one more part of a large family I am connected to!
