I'm looking for the family of Peter Ivison who was born 1875 in Wheatley Hill, Wingate, Kelloe, Durham, England. He worked as a coal miner in England, immigrated to American with his family in 1907 and became a Methodist Episcopal minister. He was living in Aroma, Kankakee, Illinois in 1930, and in Chicago in 1959. His wife was named Elizabeth Jane, b. England. His parents were James Ivison and Sarah Beaton.
Peter Ivison's children were Robert b. 1897, William b. 1898 d. 1900, Richard b. 1900, d.1901, Sarah Olive b. 1902, Elizabeth b. 1905, Elsie b. 1907, and Clara b. 1917. All children were born in England except Elsie, who was born in Pennsylvania, just after the family immigrated to the USA. Elizabeth married George Wall (b. England) and had at least one child: Ruby E Wall born 1925 in Illinois, probably Aroma, Kankakee County, Illinois.
I have more info on the Ivison and Beaton ancestors.I would like to share information, and connect with Ruby Wall and other descendants of Peter Ivison. Will you please e-mail me or post a message if you have any information on this line?
