Debra- My branch of the Funkhouser family has beein in southern-central Illinois for at least 150 years.I can give you names of a few members of the family to contact if you want to talk with them about the Edgar County, Illinois Funkhousers.
In fact, I am heading back home to Illinois next week, for a couple of days.I will ask if it is okay to pass along their contact info.My aunt does not haver the internet, so contact would need to be by phone or snail mail.....
Please e-mail me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
This is the first time I have been on this site... It would be best to contact me directly rather than go through Geealogy.com.
