Aaron M. Hackett/Susan Cullum
I am looking for information on the
Hackett family. Especially Aaron M. Hackett.
b.1811 . He had a mail route from Pekin to Jacksonville Illinois
in 1837. I have a copy from the Post Master General, Sandusky,
giving him the instruction on the route. I have found several
deeds in Tazewell county for his property. I have also found his
marriage license to Susan Cullum in
Illinois. He moved from Illinois to Kentucky where he died.. I
would like to get in touch with other family members. I am not
for sure who his parents are or if he was born in Ohio or
Louie/Louis Rudolph and Bertha O. Leehy
I am looking for information on Louie/Louis Rudolph and Bertha O. Leehy. Married 28 Feb 1919. Were they married in Tazewell Co. IL.?
They had a son John Thomas Rudolph b. 18 Aug 1920 in Pekin.
Bertha and Louie/Louis must have divorced before 1926 since Bertha remarried in Champaign Co. IL. in 1926. Did Louie/Louis and Bertha divorce in Tazewell Co.?
I find no 1920 census with Louie and Bertha living in Pekin. But on her 1926 marriage certificate to Jerry D. Kibler she says she is living in Pekin.
