I am new to the White County, IL mailing list and was wondering if anyone
could identify any of 5 pictures I have posted to my website.
These pictures keep coming up in our family, but we don't really know who
they are. If you have time maybe you could stop by and see if you recognize
any of them. Our family was from Hardin, Gallatin and some just down the
road a piece.
Thank you so much, Beth Lane
Researching many surnames, but especially Herrin, Patton, Mason, Taylor,
Lanier, Davis. Does anyone have any information on a William Patton whose
son was Paton R. Patton and grandson was Hiram Patton? Also looking for
ancestors of Hiram Patton's wife who was Elizabeth Davis and her sister
Jenny Davis Pritchard.
My sincerest sympathy to the family and friends of Judy. She was such a help
to me while locating the Bakers of Gallatin County. We were still looking for
Jeremiah, Sr. My prayers are with Judy and her family.
Laurel, I am so sorry to hear of Judy's death; I hope she didn't have to suffer. If you can, please tell her family that
we at the White Co. Historical Society Genealogical Library are thinking of them and will miss her. She visited our library
two or three times, and was so friendly, and always wanted to help someone. Several times she said she wished she could help
us as we struggled to get our library going, as we had such few volunteers.
I visited her once in her home before she moved a year or so ago, and a little granddaughter was staying overnight. I was
there in Lexington to visit my grandson, Damon Kelley, a student at U.K. He graduated and will be teaching math at Lafayette
General High School this Fall. Several times after that she would ask about him when we talked or wrote, as he went with me
when I visited.
"Judy, now you can get your genealogy from the real source! We will miss you!" Janet Armstrong jawchs(a)midwest.net
Theres a void that won't be filled for along time to come. I know Brian
Batteiger will do his best to carry on for Judy. And I know all of us who
knew Judy will help him as Judy has helped all of us.
I'm another one that Judy helped to get on the right track, finding my
great-grandmother second marriage. . She was a Sweetheart that will not be
forgotten in the Genealogy family.
may God be with her family at this time and for years to come.

I think if you send something fairly quickly it will get in the book.
The historical society is supposed to review the submissions before they
go to the printer and we haven't started on it.

Peter-san, Peter-san ! Have you seen my Peter-san ?
Nobody left here kid, must be some other chopper. The child turns and
sees the Col. NO ! he screams NO ! You knew it could happen said
"But I didn't want it to " sobbed the child What am I going to do now ?
"You let me worry about that now. You're what this wars all about. "
I don't know why this loosely quoted stream from "THE GREEN BERETS" seems to
go to my feelings right now.
I feel like that little child right now. "But I didn't want it to"
We are what this is all about. I lost a friend today. One that I never had
the honor to meet. I'm sorry about that. She never asked for anything and was
always willing to give. She honored me by gracing me with her knowledge.
I have been blessed. She gave me the greatest gift that anyone could give.
Judy was looking for JOHN "TODDY" RISTER. I didn't want her to find him this
way. He was hers and hers alone.
Now I must be satisfied in knowing that she is there giving him a piece of
her mind right now. When she's done I know she'll give a bit to HARMON, and
If ya get a chance kiddo, give my EDMUND a bit also would ya ?
I remember getting my first note from you awhile back, telling me all about
my lost Rister. You got me hooked. The whole shebang. Now every night I come
out here and hope I find another. A little clue to someone somewhere. You
gave a little boy something to hope for, after all his dreams had gone away.
Something to strive for.
You honored me. You honored OUR ancestors with your presence. You BLESS them
now. You have shown a child the dignity that he had lost, and he has
recovered it. You have restored his pride. May he be ever worthy of that
trust that you gave him.
To you my friend, I drink a toast,
TO MY ABSENT "COUSIN"

It is with great personal sadness that I bring this to your attention. Judy
Batteiger lost her battle to cancer earlier today. Many of you are familiar
with her and have possibly been assisted by her in one way or another. She
was a great researcher and a great friend. She gave me my first big break
and has supplied me with a wealth of information that I could not have
gotten elsewhere. I will certainly miss her and I know that some of you on
these lists would be interested to know of her death.
Here is her obituary sent to me by her son.

Betty and all,
The last I heard the deadline on the book was extended until 5/31/99 and
that is supposed to be the final date. I think it is the final time
because it will take several months for editing and printing and the
book is supposed to be out before Christmas and the end of Jim Davis'
term as Kiwanis President.

I am searching for information about the King family who probably was
living in White Co around 1838 and most likely came from TN.
Specifically, my great grandmother was "Dilly" King, b. about 1815-1819,
probably in TN. She married my ggrandfather Doctor Washington Dugger
Jan 3, 1839 in Gallatin CO IL. We have been completely stymied trying to
find any information about Dilly other than the marriage certificate
from Gallatin Co. There were lots of Kings in TN and several in White Co
as well, but noone has found Dilly. (I suppose her name could also be
Ardelia?) However, the other day I came across a Land Patent Report that
had a James King who purchased land (sold @ Shawneetown ) In White Co.
on July 28,1838. Strangely, my ggf Doctor Washington Dugger and his
brother also bought land (sold in Shawneetown)in Gallatin Co. on the
same day. Being a romantic sort I visualized that Dilly came to town
with either her father or brother James King for the ride, met my ggf
and fell in love at first sight. They did marry 6 months after that
land sale date and so I am hoping that one of you has a lead for me to
track down here?
Is there a census for White Co. that might list family members of the
James King family prior to that land sale in 1838? Any other
suggestions would be most welcome!

The place to write is White County Clerk, Courthouse, 301 E. Main,
Carmi, IL 62821. I know they have a PO Box but don't have the
number--anything will work. The Clerk's # is 618-382-7211 if you want
to check with them before sending $. Certified marriage copies have been
$5 each. If the marriage was before 1931 they should be listed in
transcriptions sold by the historical society, so if you give us some
details we can make sure it is there.
