I am trying to help my wife find relatives i or about Whiteside County Illinois in the mid 1800's . 3 brothers, John, Patrick and William. John and Patrick are assumed to have served in the Civil War, and did so by being paid to serve for someone else.William was to young to serve. There were also 2 Women, Bridget and Ellen or Helen. They would have lived in or near Sterling, Rock Falls, Dixon area. Any information on any Fayhe's or Meade's would be appreciated.
