Hello,

Completed September 19, 2007---- I'm so proud of myself. Finished this up this morning. & I'm jumping for JOY!!!!---This will be first my major book online for Warren county, IL.  Kate & I are not responsible for typos just letting you know so if you find any we are sorry and names of the spelling of the people we've went by what is in the book. We are not responsible if they are not spelled correctly.

Thanks for you time. Have a wonderful Day.

Your Host Foxie Hagerty

comments from users of this book to be placed here:

June 07, 2012--as if this date this is the only place this book should appear,  which was done by My daughter Katlyn & I. Now it is being used on there without proper authority, creditability. In other words it is on there illegally which is not surprising to me at all.
