RE: Nellie B White 52786846
From the newspaper article, I figured out the wedding date was September 23, 1950.

Thank you!

I see that "Jesse" Potts is listed as "Jefferson" Potts on the above memorial. Jesse Potts is my husband's 3rd gr-grandfather. As you will note, his gravestone says "Jesse." I have yet to see any document that says "Jefferson" Potts. I submit that perhaps someone misread the double "s" as they were written as double "f" in earlier days.

My great-grandmother was Mary Wilhemena Kelly Lacock. Her parents were Anna and Benjamin Kelly who were buried in Trial Cemetery. How do I get pictures of their headstone or access to the Cemetery to take pictures? Vikki

Boylans in Chillicothe
Does anyone at One Foot In the Grave have any records on the Nora M. Boylan seen in this 1900 census, or her older sister Mary Boylan who was born in 1862? Your former member John Melton was working on these two ladies prior to his passing. They were born as Chillicothe residents, and may have married there, or perhaps died there unmarried under their maiden name of Boylan. Nora's first name could have been Eleanor, or Honora, which was a popular Irish name. Mary would be a good bet for Nora's middle name. Her older sister Mary's middle name is unknown. Their father was Thomas Boylan, and their mother was Margaret McCullough Boylan. Thanks so much for any assistance.

Name: Nora M Boylan
Home in 1900: Chillicothe, Peoria, Illinois
Age: 22
Birth Date: Nov 1877
Birthplace: Illinois
Relationship to head-of-house: Daughter
Father's name: Thomas Boylan
Father's Birthplace: New York
Mother's Birthplace: New York
Marital Status: Single
Occupation: landlord
Household Members: living in a fully owned home in Chillicothe
Name Age
Thomas Boylan 67 born Feb 1833 in New York, both parents born in Ireland
Thomas H Boylan age 38 born Aug 1872
Regenia Boylan 24 born May 1876
Nora M Boylan 22 born Nov 1877
