I did not find his wife nor is there any record of her on the cemetery records that were walked and documented in 1981.

RE: William DeHority
Do let me tell you some AMAZING information about the family I call my own!

Absalom & Eliza Dehority (Secor, IL) are one child
William is another
George Washington & Mary M Draper Dehority (East Peoria, IL) are another.

George & Mary had several children, one of whom was named Avery Faye Dehority. Another child named James stayed in the Secor, Illinois area and has a very large family spread out in that area. Avery moved to Tazewell county, East Peoria and used Abraham Lincoln as his attorney to defend the family home from the railroad coming through, unfortunatly they lost and the railroad tracks are still there and used everyday where their home was. Avery & Matilda married in Ohio and came to Illinois. They had five children. Alexander, Olive, Oma, Opal & James. James died at 30 of consumption, his wife is nameless and one of his daughters died two years later. His other daughter Helen lived with her uncle Alexander when 17 and them married a Meachum. Opal married a Reichelderfer, she had 5 children. Harry was a military man who divorced, and never had children, all four daughters married and all had children except Marjorie who died young. Alexander was married three times, his first wife went insane was died in the insane asylum after they divorced. Richard died in infancy and Walter his other son was raised by his parents. Oma was young, she was a school teacher and married a Joseph Dolan, after dying at 28 we speculated her child died as well but he did not. He survived, her husband never remarried and the baby married, had a daughter he named Elizabeth Oma Dolan who had a daughter who had a son named Camron. This discovery was mde when I met Camron on a dating site and traced him all the way back and discovered we were family, I was able to show him the wedding dress Matilda wore the day she married Avery in 1860 that still bore her sweat stains! We even have the picture of her wearing the dress! Olive is my grandmother...She married the tallest mounted horseback policeman in Peoria, Illinois and had one son Robert who became the Chief Editor of the Peoria Journal Star, our largest paper. When he married Amelia Schmidt of Hamilton, it was speculated she would die from whatever illness she had when he married her in the hospital but she lived to have two children...Robert Jr. who became an accountant and Barbara whom never married and was a prominant American Red Cross nurse here. Robert married Anna Miller and had two children, Lloyd is my father and Im Amelia...named for my Great-Grandmother! Phew! Hope that made sense. Go to Fondulac Cemetery in East Peoria, IL and you can see all of the Dehority pictures including the burial place for George & Mary, Sarahs son. I also have a tiny little tin type of Sarah that I will get on here soon...Ill let you know when I do!

Greenville Penn McMillan

A friend and I research Civil War soldiers in an attempt to add more detail to their Find A Grave memorials and "bring them back to life." Many Civil War era tombstones provide very little detail on dates of birth or death.

I have sent you some details on Greenville Penn McMillan and may have more to send if the research goes well.

Would greatly appreciate it if you would update his memorial with the new information.

Thank you
Hi, thank you so much for trying to find my sister's grave site. Kathy boree was born in 1960 from what I know and died a few short hours later. My mother says she only remembers being still in the hospital and my father taking care of her funeral through a funeral home.. she ony remembers that they were in the city and not what grave yard so *sighs softly* I am at a loss as what move to take next! any help is greatly appreciated as I live in Athens Georgia and have no way of gettinghold of anyone in that area unless you have ideas! thank you!
