The information you have posted here has been very helpful. However, you stated incorrectly that Alma Lucille "Gram" Newby Dill died in 1949.
I never met Gram until 1981. She was my wife's grandmother. Lucille Dill's daughter Vera Nadine Dill Andre is my wife's mother. Gram died 25 June 1992, LaPorte, LaPorte Co., Indiana. I have a photo of Gram holding her great granddaughter Laura Elizabeth Lloyd (my daughter) that was taken in April or May of 1991.
I'm linking an image of Gram's grave marker from findagrave.com that shows that Gram died 25 June 1992: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=11...
Herschel Dill Probate 17 May 1961, White Co., Ill., Box 798 S 234. He died 30 April 1961. No place of burial found in cemetery books, but Alma Lucille Newby Dill died in 1946 and is buried at Hammack Cemetery , White Co., Ill., so I presume Herschel is buried there, also, though his name is not on that cemetery list or any other in White Co.Since census books only go through 1920 and marriage records through 1930 and cemetery records give deaths in 1960's , as the books were transcribed from the cemeteries in that 1960-1970 period, there is no record for him in book form.
