Trying to find Ellen Nell (ne: PRICE) HANNON (b.1783, Ireland).
Listed in the Census of Illinois in 1865 as living with one of her children in Peru, age
75. Her husband Brian Hannon died in LaSalle from typhus in 1848. He was likely buried in
the old Catholic Cemetery there. The graves were moved to St. Vincent's Cemetery in the
1930's and I understand there was a notice to the public of all these graves that were
either to be abandoned or move. No record in St. Vincent's of either of them. Question: I
wish to find the public notice of the reburials. When about was this done and what was the
name of the likely paper this list would have appeared in? Thanks, Bruce Hannon

His spouse was Lucy Ann NESTLEY. Together they had 13 children.
Russell was b. at Rhode Island. Since Lucy died in Pittsburgh, PA. in 1854 and Russell d.
3 yrs later in a different state I suspect at least one of their 13 children resided there
and perhaps Russell lived with them till his death. (?)I have a great deal of information
to exchange with others researching this line as well as collateral lines. My connection
to this family line is through Russell and Lucy's first born child Luch Ann (RATHBONE) DICKENS. Having had Thirteen children I should luck out and
latch onto at least one descendant! :-) Look forward to hearing from you and good luck in
your research. Jeannie Josephson firstname.lastname@example.org
