OK on the Myers's - and Enoch & Nancy did have a son Albert, but apparently
not the one who was killed by a UP train. The burial place of Enoch and
Nancy is in the E. Chelsea Cemetery, west of Waddams Grove, IL - I think
over across the county line into Jo Daviess Co. (Their son Albert P. Myers
(b. July 26, 1858, d. Jan. 21, 1924) m. Clara Elizabeth Lutz on Mar. 6,
1884 - a sister of grandfather John "Ezra" Lutz.)
OK also on the Badgers - apparently there were two Elizabeth's, and my
father correctly identified his grandmother's sister in the anniversary
picture as Lizzie Badger and not Lizzie Myers.
Now I wonder whether you would be so kind as to fill in some blanks
for me. I had only two generations of Robert Badgers. Here is what I have
missing and would be glad to have them filled in:
Your first Robert Badger and his wife are completely missing from my
For your Robert Badger II, all that I have is that he was born "about
1797" and died March 27, 1866, with his burial place in the Louisa Cemetery,
between Lena and Waddams Grove, IL - I have nothing about his wife.
Your Robert Badger III is the only child of Roger Badger II that I
For children of Robert Badger III, I have Samuel and Catherine with no
dates, places, or spouses. For John and Elizabeth (Fry) Badger, I have no
I suppose I can survive a while yet without any of this information, but if
you can fill any of the missing pieces, it will look nice.
With appreciation, Dwight Farringer.
