Carol Anne, Thank you so much for info on Rose MENARD. She was sister of my maternal GM, Juliette. I would like to get more info on Hercule MENARD if possible and hope that you might send me in the right direction. In US Census for 1900 Sarah is shown as widow living in West Chicago but Juliette was born to Sarah and Hercule in Bourbonnais in Sept, 1895. Hercule therefore must have died between 1895 and 1900 possibly in Kankakee County. He's not shown in any Illinois death records that I could find. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again, Larry..
