My gg grandfather EDWARD GILMORE (b. 1865) lived in Winnebago County with his wife ELECTA GILMORE. Rockford city directory in 1891 lists him as a laborer. They had seven children between 1885 and 1896. Electa died shortly after giving birth to her seventh child in 1896-7. Several of the children were put in an orphanage -- I think in Rockford -- and the rest were adopted (I believe their names were John, Ernest, Ethel, Edith, Walter, Edward(my grandfather) and Fred ) Wondering if anyone had any suggestions about orphanages in Rockford, or access to guardianship files, etc. Winnebago County Clerk has no record of any of the children's births. Any help appreciated. Maureen Fesler maureenf@uclink4.berkeley.edu

My GG-Grandfather, Horace B. GRUMMON, d. 1888 is buried in the Cherry Valley Cemetery with his wife, Caroline BARTON Grummon, d. 1864 and daughter Lurana GRUMMON Ewing, d. 1863. His son, Sidney GRUMMON, d. 1880 and his wife, Sarah C. MAY Grummon, d. 1882 are also buried in Cherry Valley Cemetery. I have a copy of an obituary for his other son George GRUMMON, buried in the Belvidere Cemetery but wondered if there may be obituaries available on any of the above people. I am unable to find out Horace's parent's names. Any help you may be able to give me would be greatly appreciated.

I am researching the Grummon family and George Homer Grummon is the son of my GG-grandfather, Horace B. Grummon. George Homer is buried in the Belvidere Cemetery and Horace is buried in the Cherry Valley Cemetery, as is Sidney Grummon. I am wondering if there are any inscriptions in the Bible or anything that might tell me Horace's parents names. Thank you for your help and time. Susan Grummon

Surname LILLY; JONES; GIFFORD - George Lilly married Marie Jones daughter of Samuel Jones, sister of George Jones. The family lived in Pine Rock Twp. She died after birth of son Sylvester Lilly, about 1853. George then married Mary Gifford at Rockford. Approx. 1860 they moved to Buchanan Co Iowa; about 1869 moved to Adair Co Iowa. George and Mary are buried there. I descent from George and Marie. An obit written by George's daughter states another son Miles died about 8 days after Sylvester was born. There are no cemetery records for Miles. Was he Sylvester's twin or an older brother? George and Mary's descendants are in need of info on the Gifford family also. She married first Stanley?? Smith. I would like to contact other members of this family. George Lilly's father appears to be David Lilly buried at Larabee, Cherokee Co. Iowa. Who are his parents? Contact me at E-Mail RuLilly@aol.com or Ruth Lilly
