Patricia, could you give any other info on Charles Lewis? I have an Ancestry account and
could possibly find some parental information through that. Do you know any names of
possible siblings, name of his wife, where he was born, approx year of his birth, etc? You
can also send for a genealogical copy of a death certificate to the courthouse in
Pinckneyville for either $3 or $10 or the Illinois Dept of Health for $10. They don't
always show the names of the parents but many do. You may be able to request an obituary
through the DuQuoin Library. They have records of the DuQuoin Tribune as well as the
DuQuoin Evening Call. Their info is: DuQuoin Public Library, 28 S. Washington St, DuQuoin,
IL 62832-1396, phone: 618-542-5045, email: www.dpl.lib.il.us
. Either newspaper may have
an obituary record of him. Let me know if you have any further info on him and I will try
to look him up through Ancestry if you would like. I could possibly find the names of his
parents that way. !
I'm sorry I don't have access to the death records for Perry Co. but if you want,
I have the information you would need to send for that to that I got off of IRAD: I
checked, but IRAD doesn't have copies of death records for Perry Co. past 1915 or that
would be the cheapest way to go, just paying for copies.
