I'm James McTague originally from Joliet ILL. I live in Cary Il. near the Wis. border and north of Chicago. I heard a rumor that a brother of my great uncle Fabian McTgaue had a hotel/resturant that was quite popular in St. Louis. And, either he or another brother had a hotel in Iowa. I remember stay at that place when I was a kid in the 50's and early 60's. It was cool. That's where I first saw soap float (dove, I think)I also believe my father James Orlo McTague of South Dakota and son of William McTague said he had a cousin who lives(d) in Springfield MO. I think all these brothers originated in Morris, IL. and the earliest known ancestor was a Hugh McTague who came over from IR in 1848. Hope that is helpful. Let me know if there is any connection there. maybe we can help each other.
