Illinois Connection

I was born in Sumner, Illinois, lived in Chicago, Springfield, Tuscola, Champaign-Urbana (while my husband attended and graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine), also lived in New Orleans, Louisiana, moved to Huntington, West Virginia, Iowa City, Iowa, currently live in Centralia, Illinois. I graduated from Bridgeport High School, but attended college in Indiana. I wrote a book titled, Book Learning in Centralia, Illinois, A primer on Willow Grove School, 1866-1992 that is in the Jefferson and Adams Reading Rooms of the Library of Congress but unfortunately I did not secure a ISBN number for the book. Me and Hobo Bill: Recollections of a National Hobo King is a story of a hobo who lived and died in Centralia, Illinois. I am currently near completion on a history of Brookside Township History, and Centralia Junior College and Kaskaskia College, located in Centralia, Illinois, that will soon be published.
