Re: Henry Cleal- England >Lasalle County IL
Hello, thought it was a good idea to get on Genforum. Henry Cleal is buried in Allen cemetery, Ransom, Lasalle county, IL. Many Cleals buried there. I just received his probate record. Not much new but interesting. I am awaiting a unit history for Pvt Charles Cleal. The only confederate in our family. Also in touch with cousin Judy, descendant of John, sent me copies of some photos that include Albert Cleal family. My mother has a large collection of period photos that were pased down. unfortunately none are marked. Trying to identify each family group. I live in nearby Grundy county so if you are in the area let me know and I can show you where the cemetery is and the Cleal farm was. I can send you a photo of the grave site. I correspond with a Roger Cleal in Great Britain and he graciously made a couple inquiries for me. Found Henry's wedding info and birth. Parents listed as John Cleal and Anne Mundeen in Dorset. As you probably know, the Cleals were from Dorset England. I look forward to exchanging information. Hope other Cleal descendants join us on this site. Oh, found a photo of my Grandmother on the folks wall that proves she visited Doniphan, Nebraska. Take care.
