Most of the packing houses were in the Chicago Stock Yard area. This is like 43rd and Halsted, I grew up in this area.. You might have some luck by searcing with the words "Chicago Stock Yards", they show a lot of pictures and history. Good Luck
I am looking for someone that may have went to school or may have known Ronald Le Roy Ostenson. He was born on 8-11-1949 and died 2-1-1969. He was from Cicero, Illinois. If you have a picture or any information about him I would greatly appreciate it. thank you for your time.
I'm looking for a man named Ollie Jones he should be between 82 and 85. Last known to live in Chicago, Il. Pictures look as if it could be the South Side. He was associated with a family with the last name of Greenwood . Pictures look as if he is tall possibly black or mixed. He would have known Lilas Darnell who is a deaf woman who lived in Chicago, Il. My husband was born Oct 1959. If anyone has any information I would greatly appreciate your sharing. Have a wonder day!!
Glen had 4 siblings that I am aware of and their names are Raleigh Adams,Aubra Adams,Leonard Adams,Lola M. Adams and His fathers name was Robert Lee Adams and I have been told his mothers name is Milda May Stinehouse. If anyone can please help me find out the genealogy of this side of my family please contact me. Glen Adams married my greatgrandmother Margaret Pearl Maxfield and they had 4 children together Raymond,Ruth,Daril,and my grandmother Shiela Daryth Adams.
I'm a grand daughter of Glen Adams who lived in Cook County, IL. My grandmother was Margaret and my father was Robert Lane Adams. Raymond died in WWII, Darrill died in the 1900's, Sheila died about three years ago, and Ruth may still be alive in Shelton, WA. That means your Great Grandmother had five children. I believe we are talking about the same person and I too am looking up my heritage for my nephew and daughter.
Glen died before I was born. Margaret divorced Glen and married Clarence Wivell who was the only one I knew as a grandfather. If I can help you in any way, it would be my pleasure.
I am trying to find anything about my grandfather. I have his WWI Draft Registration and his marriage to my grandmother, Gertrude Carlson but would like to know about his parents, who they were and where they were born.
