Thanks again Wayne. I do not have a record of Vina Rector Smily, I've searched through Ancestry. Do you have a source for that?

Illinois Births and Christenings 1824-1940, Family Search.Org.

Let me see Census record they are on.Not been able to find one.Often it

is because of spelling.Not many could read write or spell.So Census taker

had to guess.Germans settled a lot in Illinois.And they were hard to

understand.I know i was born there.

Thanks Wayne. I am finding numerous misspellings, for sure!
