HISTORICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ILLINOIS KNOX COUNTY,

Munsell Publishing Company, 1899.

Many of the biographies on this page have been typed by Kathy Mills of Texas and I thank her so very much..... if not for her I would be at a standstill at the moment... I have inserted a rose flower at the ones that are online... thanks Kathy and hope everyone else out there thanks you too.

Another way to search it is use your browser's edit go to find click type in surname and click down.

Will tell you if they are here... also in Free find search engine on index page...

What I'm not proud of is ----If you see these on another web site they are copied from Kathy Mills & me. I used to host the site but no more was told I would be given credit where credit is due & that has not happened to as of now or any other time they should come down from the other site. Kathy & I worked long and hard took us 2 years together of typing to get this all online for your enjoyment. thank you so much Kathy & I wish I could get a hold of you...

If by chance you catch these on another Knox co., IL site they are not authorized to have them. Kathy Mills & I took two long years to type these up. I was once a host for another Knox Site

Got fired cuz told I did not upgrade web pages enough to suit the master. Well, the master has done and stole Kathy's & my web pages which took us awhile to type up together between the two of us. I was to be given credit

plus, a link back to my sites this has not happened but she has kept Kathy's my hard work. I do not appreciate this in the least. Not at all.

 

Yippee!!! We did it Kath, another biography index page all online with surnames linked up.

 Accomplished: October 02, 2006. & Hopefull

Kathy has typed up most all the biographies with the surnames listed here. I have pulled all flowers off. They are linked up and ready for you to view and use in your family files. If you need the index page for your source files feel free to email me and I can send it or scan it and send it to which ever you prefer. All surnames on this page is linked up and ready. I'm just so Happy to be able to put these here for your pleasure. And everyone out there hopefully when you find your ancestor here you will think a bit about Kath, and her hard work, & mine and say thanks! Thanks & Happy Gene Hunting....
