WOW!! Annetta is absolutely my gr-gr-gr-grandmother!! Thank you so much for the information!! This is so exciting to hear something personal about the family! I don't know who the Christ DREYER is that died the same year but he is way too young to have been my ancestor. Maybe he is a cousin or something?? I have never been able to connect the other Illinois DREYER's to mine.
Another interesting side story: I was just visiting in Chicago with my husband last month and got the opportunity to drive down and visit the Freeport City Cemetery! They had the graves of my Samuel CLAIR family but NOTHING with the DREYER family?!! So I assumed that they were buried somewhere else but now with this new information I think that they must be there too?!! Their graves must have been lost or vandalized or ?? The groundsman at the Cemetery was nice enough to look through the book and find family for me and then take us out to the graves. I didn't have enough time to go anywhere else but hope to come with my husband on business again next year and look into it furthur!
Thank you again for you help!
