I am in possession of a copy of the WEGHORST FAMILY HERITAGE BOOK (certificate #002) published by Beatrice Bayley, Inc. and assigned to F.L. Weghorst of Avon, IL.This book was rescued from a rummage sale in hope that I might find a family member who would be interested in having it.
Folded inside the book there are 3 pages of typewritten notes concerning the parents and descendants of William Clarence WEGHORST, b. 9 Dec 1879 in Petersburg, IL and his wife Anna Barbara SWOBODA, b. 6 Nov 1878 in Pekin, IL.Surnames include: VAN BUREN, SHUISER, PRATT, ABEL, OHLINGER, LOHNES, RIVES, WOLFE, KOLANDA, MURPHY, WALDMEIER, GAY, GENSEL, GLASS, BERARDI, CLAYTON, RAHN, BIGA, KNIPPENBERG, MAXEY, & FORNOFF.These notes were compiled by Betty WEGHORST MURPHY in Aug. 1984.In addition, there is a list of family members who attended the WEGHORST Reunion held 18 Aug. 1984 at Mineral Springs Park in Pekin, IL.There is also a Feb. 22, 1983 newspaper article from the Peoria Journal Star, with a picture of Betty and text concerning her interest and genealogy-related activities in Tazewell County, IL.
I would love to send this book and notes to an interested family member, asking only reimbursment of my cost- $1.00 plus the shipping.Please let me know if this is your family.
