Good Morning, my name is Marilyn Sue Kniburys and I live in Albion, Michigan. Since, I live so far from Coles County, I am trying to do some research not only for myself and my children, but also for my dad, via the internet. My father's mother's name (my grandmother) was Mildred (Martin) Murphy. She was born in Windsor, Illinois, in 1908. She was 17 at dad's birth. Dad, whose given name at birth was John William Murphy, was born Nov. 6, 1925. My father was adopted at a young age, which adds another whole demention to my research. We have reason to believe that he was born at Memo-Methodist Hospital in Coles County, in Mattoon, Illinois. Dad had at least one sibling older than him and dad would like to contact that sibling if at all possible. My dad's father's name (my grandfather) was Charles Murphy and he was born in O'Fallon, Illinois in 1907. I was wondering if any of your research reflected or could be associated with any of the information that I have stated above. If you know of any information that would be helpful to me, then please E-mail me immediately at Mkniburys@albion.edu At this time, I want to "Thank You" for all of your help.
