I seem to have hit a roadblock in my search , and i cant get it to pull up anything before the late 1800s .As if one little piece of the puzzle is stopping it all from coming together.
My name is Virgil Dale Jr , born 1982 CA , raised OK .
My dad is Virgil Dale , born 1953 CA , raised IL . Has a half brother, Jerry Hartwich (Riverside CA) by another father . Their mother is Ramona (Kilday?) who passed in 2001 living in Coos Bay OR .
His dad is Virgil Eugene ( b IL 1926, d 1993 ) held the family farm in Loda(?) for a while . It was near Paxton IL , thats where my dad grad h.s. "Gene" had a sister named Sally . He passed 5 Jul 1993 in Urbana IL . His mother's name was Maxine .
His father was Virgil Lewis (b Missou Feb 1901, d Oct 1985) who had 3 brothers John "Jack" (b IL Jan 1897, d Nov 1986), Chester "Ted" (b IL Feb 1899, d Jan 1966), and Floyd (b Missou Jul 1906, d Apr 1987).
The four's parents were Anna Frederickson(?), b IL 1877 ? (both of her parents were born in Sweden), and Arthur, b IL 1873 ? (both of his parents were born in IL). Arthur and Anna married in 1897.
This is all i seem to be able to dig up. And thats if i was able to interpret decipher and read the handwriting of the census scribe.
