I am researching the Joseph Francis Ryan family of Champaign and Joliet, IL. Joseph Francis was once the Police Chief of the City of Urbana, IL.He also served as a Captain on the Illinois State Patrol. He married Winona Rose Sullivan and they had three children: James Edmund, John Joseph, and Margaret.
In addition, I'm researching the Merle Leola Morphy family of Champaign,IL. Merle married John "Red" Applegate and had two children: John and Pauline.
Any information would be appreciated. I am also willing to share the information that I have.(Please find a report below.)
