I am an ancestor of Denis MAHER and Mary DOLLAND, they lived in New Dublin, Kent Township, Stephenson Co., Illinois. Their daughter Bridget had the first marriage in Erin Township in 1844 when she marries Robert CAVANAUGH. Family included sisters Ann, Catherine and Mary, brothers James and Thomas James (Sr). The 1860 census shows the family still living in Stephenson Co. Sometime after this the family moved. My grandfather Thomas James (Jr), born August 26, 1885 in Beresford, South Dakota, returned to Stephenson Co. with his father, Thomas James (Sr) married Catherine KENNEDY, worked as a plumber for Evan's Plumbing, and lived in Freeport, Illinois. Thomas James (Jr) had two marriages, Myrtle OSWALD in June 25, 1906, in Freeport, Illinois and Lilas WITTBECKER in March 19, 1931, in Freeport, Illinois. I am willing to share information with anyone who can help.

I am trying to locate my uncle. His name is Terry MILLER, parents were Truman and Irene Miller. He is now in his 50's or 60's. He spent many years between the 1950's and the 1970's at Dixon State Facility. I believe he has been moved from there but not released.
