I'm looking for information re: the Martin Whalen/Mary Ellen Sheridan family who lived about 6 miles east of Monticello from about 1870-1910+. Their children were Sarah who married Henry Turner; James M who married Lillian Trotter; John W who married Margaret (Maggie) Rodgers; Samuel R who married Grace Gamlin; Luella (Ella) who married Thomas Dillon; Mary (Mamie) who married Zallie Danis and moved to Chicago; Thomas A married Rose Montgomery; and Margaret (Maggie) married Arthur Gulliford. I have census records and lots of newspaper clippings from newspapers.com from Decatur papers about the children & their families, but other than Martin's conservatorship coverage there's nothing on Martin & Mary Ellen. They are buried in St Joseph's Cemetery in Ivesdale, but I have attempted to order death records from both Piatt County and Champaign County and was advised that there are no records of their deaths in either county. Any ideas where to look? I can't find obituaries either - were there other Piatt Publications in 1893-1896 that might have more info? Any info is greatly appreciated.
