Mr. Davis tells us
the family of JOHN EDWARD INGRAM has been located.
I am searching for the family of two soldiers who was killed in the
Korea War. When they entered service they gave Clinton County, Illinois
as their home of record.
Soldier: JOHN EDWARD INGRAM
Born: 1931 Caucasian, DOL October 28, 1952 KIA, RA17253220, A Co, 23
Inf Rgt, 2nd Inf Division
Soldier: RALPH LEONARD PARKS
Born: 1922 Caucasian, DOL July 20, 1950 POW, RA17160515, C Co, 19th Inf
Rgt, 24th Inf Division
When the Korean War ended the enemy never returned or accounted for
over 8,000 of our servicemen. They died in their hands. That was over
50 years ago. Since that time DNA has been perfected and also they are
recovering remains in North Korea. Our government is obligated to
return those remains to the proper family. DNA samples have been
obtained from most of the families of these missing soldiers. For
various reasons some families have not been located. There are
approximately 100 families from Illinois that have
not been located. There are two
families from Clinton County that have not been located.
When the remains are recovered and identified they will be returned to
the family for proper burial. I am just an old (78 years) Combat
Veteran out of the Korean War and thankful that I did return. I
consider this a very noble cause and I hope that you can help in some
way to find these families. For more information on the project you may
go to http://www.jpac.pacom.mil/. My part in the program is to match up
the lost families with the proper agency.
I will be grateful for any assistance in locating these families.

am trying to locate some information on a Zadock Adams b. 1841,
Illinois and his wife Malinda b. 1846 Illinois. I would like to know
what year Zadock & Malinda passed away. I know the information
Mary Jane Adams, but I cannot find a thing on William Adams b. 1867 or
his sister Emma b. abt 1870. I would appreciate any information or help
on these relatives.
I also was wondering if there is a go site on Clinton's History, I
understand that Centralia Illinois had a big strawberry industry in the
1800's, that is also the other things that interest me, topics on the
county seat etc. Thank you.

I am looking for Death certificates, obituaries, immigration
information and anything else on the Heckert family. My
grandfather was George William Heckert, and I have his
His parents were Heinrich Friedrich Georg Heckert 1855 - 1901
in Elkhorn Prairie, and Mary Hertenstein 1863 - 1939
Their parents were Balthasar Heinrich Heckert 1828 - 1858 - who
died being thrown from a horse on the 4th of July, and his
Lisette Regina zur Oeveste - which is often spelled many
different ways -
1830 - 1917. She remarried Wilhelm Peters.
Wilhelm Hertenstein 1836 - 1920 and Friedericka Fleig 1842 - 1875 -
I know that both of these families came from
Another generation is Johann Heinrich Zur Owest and Adeleide
or Adelheid Niemann 1792 - 1862
Balthasar Henrich Heckert abt 1793 - 1855 and Marie Elizabeth
Voskamp 1794 - 1874
I really don't know where the Heckerts came from specifically
in Germany. One census listed "Hessen", and another
info. stated Mecklenburg and these are two completely
Also, Lisette Regina zur Oeveste's father was Johann
Heinrich, and there is much information on a Johann Heinrich
who immigrated to Indiana and wrote lots of letters, but I
he could be the same one after reading the letters.
My query is for any information on any of these families. I'm
pretty new at all this and really appreciate your website and

My name is Angel, I am in the direct line of Hiram Royce Hawley and I
have found that you all have a story on him...I have been looking many
many months for Information on him and his family. I was
wondering if you would have newspaper clippings or anything of him and
his family or the trail that he faced in Illinois.
Any information that you have for him would be the greatest help as I
am still searching for what happened and why he ended up in Texas.. Ty
