I'm interested in finding out more about Gerda Hawkinson Kitchen who lived in Galesburg, in Knox county when she died after being shot by a burglar in her home. I would like to find more relatives in this area who could give me any info on her life. She was married to Bill Kitchen. She had three sisters:Agnes, Olga & Ethel and her father was John Hawkinson who was from Sweden. My father was around 3 years old when Gerda died, so it must have happened around 1930. My father passed away in 1978 and I have few people to ask about the mother my father barely knew and the grandmother I've always been curious about.
My father's name was John Kitchen.
