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.

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
