Another Approach

Unfortunately, Inter Library Loan does not include genealogical material, so I could not get the book mentioned in my previous post. Although the Jackson County Library has offered to send me pages copied from the book, I think I will purchase an updated version of the book from the Jackson County Genealogical Society. The check, as they say, is in the mail first thing in the morning. As you never know where new information will lead, I prefer to have the entire book to look through. The price is not bad. I tried the ILL first as I had good luck with it in the past, but the book in question was classified as history, therefore I was able to get it through ILL.

I need to look up more information on Morris and his wives in Illinois. There has to be more information in local sources. Oh, to be independently wealthy so I could travel around and do research!

"Jackson County Cemeteries" (Indiana)

Yesterday, I requested an Inter Library Loan from my local library for a book entitled, "Jackson County Cemeteries", volume 9, "Salt Creek Township", which contains was compiled by the Jackson County Genealogical Society. It was published in 1989. It should arrive in a couple of weeks.

I am hoping to locate information about William Carothers, his wife, Mary, their children and relations in the area. William and Mary may have died and are buried in this area.
