Hello Terry, The man's name is J.S. Downey.He goes by the name of Steve Downey.His address: 145 W. broadview DR. Apt 703 Kankakee, Il60901-2093 I don't have hisphone # handy.I talked to him by calling informtion.He has an email but when I talked to him in March it wasn't working.It may be working now.He's a friendly man and is happy to share his info.
I found him because he has a Nicholas Power who was m. to Bridget Christopher.She is probably related to me.They had nine children.They lived in possibly Monticello area of Lafayette Co but I'd have to check my notes to be sure.Nicholas had a bunch of siblings that Mr. Downey can tell you.
I have another Power/Christopher family from Old Parish near Ardmore, Co. Waterford who I think is related to Bridget Christopher, above.They, however, lived in Kansas City, Missouri/Kansas area so it is hard to link them to the family in Lafayette.But I have many other names in Lafayette Co. who were also from Old Parish so I think there is a chance.Can't find the links.
His Power name in Shullsburg came from Cheekpoint Farm, Faithlegg Parish, Co. Waterford.This is an area near Passage East, east of Waterford City.
