My grandmother's maiden name used to be JOHNSON. Her father was Robert Graves JOHNSON and was born on Aug. 17, 1897. Her mother's name was Rachel Irene BARLOW-JOHNSON and she was born on May 5, 1895. Robert's parent(s) were James D. JOHNSON. This is the only one I know, I don't have a wife's name on James JOHNSON. Rachel (BARLOW) JOHNSON'S parents names were Victor BARLOW and Addie BARLOW. I know my grandmother was born in Ashton, Illinois in the mid 1920's and I know all of her brothers & sisters. But all of the family was from Amboy, Illinois. From what my grandmother has told me, she thinks her BARLOW/JOHNSON family was from Amboy, Illinois, and was always from Amboy, Illinois. This is all she remember's. If there is anyone who could give me any information on this family, I would greatly appreciate it. I have searched and searched and have come to a standstill everytime. I would be very greatful to reimburse anyone for any information, as long as it was within reason. Thank you. Lori Kime, P.O. Box 511, Howe, Indiana 46746 Email: Lori@tln.net

Seeking information on the SULLIVAN and DOWNEY families. My great grand mother, Mary May SULLIVAN was born in May 1850 in Ohio Twp, Bureau, IL to Patrick and Rose(DOWNEY) who were both born in Ireland and came separately to the US with their parents. They either met and/or married in IN or IL. They had other children who died in infancy. After Rose's death, Patrick married Mary Ann O'NEAL in 1856 in Lee county but were still residing in Ohio Twp in 1860 where they had eight more children. After 1860, I lose the family. An Elkhart history book said he moved to Mo. Any information on Catholic churches in existence in the 1840s-1880s would be helpful, the diocese this area is in, along with information if the church records are available on microfilm. Thanks
