I found another anvenue of research. I had stated that the 1880 census for Union Co Il Rich Prect. for Isreal and Matalida Artz had a daughter Minnie age 5 which didn't match the list of their children that you gave me. In the 1900 census for Union Co Il was a Minnie J. age 25 born Dec 1874 married 5 mos. to Thomas Lone, also living in the same household is an Oscar Artz, brother-in-law born Feb.1889 age 11. In the 1900 census for Carterville, Willimson Co Il was Isreal and Matilda Artz with son Oscar born Feb. 1889 age 11. Evidently Minnie J. Artz is Matalida Artz's daughter from her first marriage. From the Il. Marriage Index: Anthony Ballard and Matalida Holland married Feb.24,1874 in Union Co Il. Last year I found on the Union Co Il website under Guardianships: Ballard,Minnie,Lewis P. Holland ,Matalida Artz, guardian,533 Minnie Ballard married T.E.Lone Dec.9,1898 in Williamson Co Il I/325 according to Il Marriage Index. From Familysearch.org Minnie J. Ballard Born Dec.13,1874 Died Feb.14,1911 buried in Evergreen Cemetery Mankanda, Jackson Co Il Married Thomas Edward Lane.
