HISTORICAL ENCYCLOPEDIA OF ILLINOIS  KNOX COUNTY,

Munsell Publishing Company, 1899.

The biographies on this page have been typed by Kathy Mills of Texas and I thank her so very much.. I have inserted a rose flower at the ones that are online... thanks Kathy and hope everyone else out there thanks you too.

Flowers are being removed.

We are doing it, Kath... Yipppeee !!!!Yipppeee!!!!

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.

 

We are on the last Biography section of this Book. I can't wait to jump to for joy when they are all on with Kathy Mills must appreciated & Welcome help in typing them up the rest to go online. Thanks Kath, I thank you, other people's ancestor's thank you, and I'm sure everyone out there in Cyber-land who lands here will want to thank you too.

 Yipppeee !!!!Yipppeee!!!! All biographies are now online... and linked to their bios. Just click on the name and wait a minute or so and it will open at that persons name. Thanks bunches & bunches & bunches Kath. Kath has completed the ones I didn't get done!!!!! Now on with the township histories. Will really jump when we get the whole book online.
