The only information I have regarding this family is a couple pictures of them and their 2 sons, Joe (my husband's grandfather, born in Apr 27,1864 in IL) and Jay. Joseph's obiturary stated he was survived by a sister Lavenia. He also had sister, Mary Catherine, born in Pike Co. IL in 1856.
The family was in Montana about 1866 and California a couple years later.
If someone in Pike County has access to the 1860 Census, birth records, or any other information, could I impose upon you to look these people up for me.
