Morse and⁄or Bachelder Families--I have an old letter (1937) in which my g-g-aunt tells about her father, George Washington Bachelder, immigrating from Maine to Rockton, Illinois, in the 1830's where he built a blacksmith shop. Apparently his uncle, William Morse, had moved there even earlier in the 1830's and had planted an apple orchard with seeds he had brought with him from Maine. Is there any way of checking this information out to see if any of it is true? Jim Schultz <jschultz@essex1.com>.

Seek to share information about McMAHON and TURLEY families in Winnebago Co IL. Having trouble finding info there but I know that MICHAEL MCMAHON and wife JANE CUNNINGHAM MCMAHON settled in Rockford and Cherry Valley area about 1845-50. Their son OWEN MCMAHON married JULIA ANNE TURLEY, in 1859, daughter of MICHAEL TURLEY and ANNE WATSON TURLEY, also of Rockford area. MCMAHON's and TURLEY's were from Ireland. I know that A.J. TURLEY, son of MICHAEL, brother to JULIA, died in Cherry Valley on 2⁄20⁄1880. How can I find an obituary for A.J. Turley? Thanks for the help. Mona Sarratt Knight

How can I get a copy of his will, obit, death certificate, anything? Any information welcome. Thanks. Trudy Spanier; 2781 Kauhikoalani Place; Haiku, HI 96708-5896 trudy@maui.net

I am searching for information on my great-great grandfather, John McGregor. He was born 3⁄17⁄1819, I've been told at Rockford, Winnebago Co., IL, but not sure that's where he was born. He married Abagail June Tunison on 3⁄30⁄1857. Their son, my great-grandfather, John Hardenburg McGregor, was born 6⁄26⁄1858 at Rockford, Winnebago Co., IL. At some time after that, they moved to Pottawatomie Co.,KS. I have not been able to locate any information on John (Sr.) McGregor's parents and⁄or siblings. Does anybody have access to any records from Rockford or Winnebago Co. that might help me? Thank-you, Karen (McCann) Collins

I am trying to trace the Medhurst family line. I have an old letter from someone who has the first name of Sharon (her maiden name would probably be Dale). It is dated March 17, 1980 and has the return address of 5911 Alma Dr., Rockford. I have no idea if she is still alive. She identifies her parents as Ross Dale and Valerie Moore. I imagine she can be identified in the 1980 city directory. Or I would be interested in communicating with anyone else working on the Medhurst family (The Medhursts came to Warren Co. IL in about 1842 from New York State (Seneca or Ontario Co.). Sharon claims in her letter to have considerable information. I will be happy to reimburse you for any expense.
