I am researching GARWICK; Carroll Co.
They arrived there in the 1850's and I would love to find some Naturalization records someplace. They were a family with 6 sons.

Researching Cook Co., CHICAGO. KARKUTT and BECKMANN are the primary names I'm looking for in the time period of 1880- 1930.
My great grandparents, Louise and Christian KARKUTT live on Otto St from 1880s through 1909 when Christian died and Louise lived there until sometime in the 1920s when she moved to ARLINGTON HEIGHTS Lutheran Home for the Aged. She died in 1930--but death record is very sketchy. Anyone in Arlington Heights who could pursue this? Christian and other family members were buried in ST LUKES CEMETERY in CHICAGO, but don't know where Louise is. I would certainly appreciate help on connecting. Thanks in advance.
Hello. I am researching several families. Some of these names are Babbs, Guymon, Johnson, McKee, Bartimus, and Phillips. I am researching in Coles, Cumberland, Clark, Edgar, Effingham, and Vermilion mostly. However, I am near Macon, Champaign, Douglas, and all of the above if anyone needs help looking things up. I live in Coles County :)
I'm Researching McDonald, Franks, Rogders, Turner, Butler, Schauf (Edwards, White & Wabash counties)
Vernon McDonald Born 1904 in Maunie, White Co, IL the son of Charles McDonald and Cynthia Franks. The family was told the McDonalds immigrated from Scottland but cannot find any information to back it up. I'm stuck at Charles McDonald.
Donald W Butler son of Frank Lewis Butler Born:1887 in Wabash Co. & Mary Elizabeth Schauf 1891(she immigrated from Germany)
I am researching for more information on William J. STEPHENS. He was born February 13, 1850 and married to Anna RUSSELL in 1870. I found William in the 1860 cenus. He was living with the VAUGHAN/VAUGHN family. William died, I believe sometime after 1894. Anna moved all her children to Lawrence County, Indiana by 1900 census.
Who are William's parents? If the 1880 census is correct, his dad was born in Pennsylvania and his mom was born in Ohio.
I have RUSSELL ancestors that lived in Hancock County, Illinois in the 1870 census. William G. RUSSELL and family lived in Hancock County, IL in 1870 and in 1860 they lived in Hamilton County, Ohio and in the 1880 census they moved to White County, IL. William's daughter Anna RUSSELL married William J. STEPHENS on February 13, 1870 possibly Hancock County or Henderson County. They lived in Henderson County in the 1870 and 1880 census.
I'm also researching KLEYSTEUBER and HEINRICH from Clinton County, Illinois.
I'm researching the DEMOULIN, FOULON, and BESIN families. They all immigrated from France to Madison, Bond, and Clinton Counties in Illinois around 1850. In particular I'm looking for information about Susanne Besin who married Nathan Demoulin. She was born in France in 1840 and died around 1871. I can't find where she was buried or her death certificate. I believe that Nathan and Susan's only boy is my grandfather, John Buchanan. Family legend says that he ran away from home at the age of 14. Our family now believes he also changed his name from Demoulin to Buchanan. Possibly an anglicized version of Besin?
Right before he died he told his daughter-in-law, my grandmother, that he was born in Highland, Illinois, his mother's name was Susan "Boo-shan" (no spelling, just pronunciation) and that she was from France. He said that his father's name was Nathaniel. After 25 years of looking, I have found a family that matches his description. The 1870 census shows a little baby in the Nathan and Susan Demoulin family named John (my grandfather was born in late 1869). They lived on a farm in Clinton County near Carlyle.
At this point I'm interested in find stories about the family between 1870 and 1885. I'm thinking newspapers, but don't which newspapers to research.
