Thomas R. Price born c 1823 Pa, stated in 1862, when enlisting for Civil War, that his place of residence was Rockford, IL. He enlisted at Calhoun co. IL, served 3 years as a nurse aide. He was of German ancestor and according to tradition was a minister. Have a reprint of picture of him standing behind an pupit. I am enclined to think of the Mennoitte, or possible the Lutheran Church . Only possible other known Price name is Alias Price, found in family papers, but none known. Military papers show only he was born in Pa. Married Sabra Eunice Steed, 1 Mar 1866, in Calhoun co. IL 1870, and died March 1879 in Greene co. IL, leaving wife and three children.

I have information on the family of Russell PENNOCK and Fannie HOLMES. They lived in Rockford in the mid 1800's. I will be glad to share what information that I have. I am also looking for any information that someone may have on their descendants.


Enoch PHILLIPS, (b ?? in PA - d. 1860) married Sarah Ann SOLMON, (b. abt 1823 in England - d. 1894 in Buffalo, WI) in 1858 or 1859, marriage place unknown. Their son Byron PHILLIPS was born Dec. 20, 1859, near Wilmot, WI. His father died while he was still an infant, between Jan and July 1860. Sarah PHILLIPS then moved to Beloit and married John LAFFERTY, probably about 1862. Sarah may have been married at least twice before her marriage to Enoch PHILLIPS. Her children Robert, Bessie and Owen EAVES were all born in England. Her son, Henry THOMPSON, was born abt 1864 in WI. He was known to be living in Rockford, IL in 1945, and may have had a daughter named Flora. Any info on this family would be appreciated. I have much to share.

I am searching for information on by father, ORIE L. PARKER who lived in Rockford, Illinois from 1921 until 1930. I do know that he was discharged from the Army in Rockford in 1922. I find that he married a Margaret LIGHTFOOT CARR in Freeport, Illinois on 3 March1921. Margaret Carr had been married as Mrs. Lightfoot and had two children listed as Lightfoot.Orie L. Parker was employeed by the Barber-Coleman Company in Loves Park, Illinois as a machinist.Orie L. Parker and Margaret Parker or listed in the City Directory of Rockford as residing first at 713 Green Street in 1923, then 709 Green Streeet in 1925, 1926 at Washington Park, then 1927-28 at 523 Newport Avenue and 1928-29-30 at 604 Sydney Avenue in Loves Park.The 1930 term of Circuit Court has record of an Petition for Divorce and Cross-Bill with final divorce about Jan. 1931.Orie Parker moved to E. St. Louis, Ill and re-married and fathered 4 children and the rest is history of record. I am looking for more on this 10 years in Rockford and what happened to Margaret Lightfoot and the two boys. When Orie L. Parker married the first time the bride listed her name as Margaret Louis McNeal, born in Evansville, Indiana. This Margaret Louise McNeal on the marriage license issued in Stephenson County, Illinois listed her as "miss Louise McNeal age 25 and that this was her first marriage. In the Divorce she states she was formerly Mrs. Carr and before that Mrs. Lightfoot and that the two boys are both Lightfoot and in 1930 the ages are 22 and 19 which would have made them 12 and 10 at the time of marriage to Parker. Orie Parker's wife may be listed as:
Margaret Louis McNeal; or
Louis McNeal; or
Margaret Lightfoot; or
Margaret Carr

Any help is appreciated. Larry Parker -- e-mail to: Trout 103@aol.com
