Wanting information about my great grandparents THomas McKenzie/McKinzie and Margaret McCormick. Their daughter Margaret Ellen (my grandmother) was born Aug 22 1896, possibly in Belvidere,Il. Her mother Margaret was born 1862 & died 1919 (according to the headstone pic my mom has). Family story says Thomas abandoned the family after 1891. A fellow genealogist sent me 1900 census info. Margaret Ellen (Wheaton,IL) married Hiram Smith (Elburn,IL) at St Michaels Rectory,Wheaton,IL 9-2-1922. The lived in Cook CO, Dupage CO, Kane CO.We know most of her history after her marriage but nothing prior. Can anyone help ?Oh yes, she may have had another brother who died very young...no other info.
