Have you checked the Brown County censuses to determine how long they were in the county? Perhaps you already know where they were in 1900. If you think they were still in the county in 1900, I can check that census for you. Unfortunately, I do not have an index for it and the ones following (1910,1920 & 1930) as I do with the earlier ones, so I have to look through the whole county to find them.

 

Hereís a parker entry in the 1880 Census:

Notice Emma, age 17, could be your Emma. I looked for Johnsonís nearby but could not find any likely candidates. There was one William about the right age but no Alva.

 

If they died after 1917, many states started recording deaths and keeping death certificates. If you know where they died, you may get additional information about Emma from it. Sometimes parentsí names are listed. If they died in Illinois, there is an online access to the recorded deaths. You can find a link on my web page for it.

 

Hope you strike it rich soon.

Sincerely,

Ken Huffman

Thank you.  I'm not having much luck finding out anything about them, but I'm
going to keep trying.  This information may help me.  Thanks again.
