Dear Ellen,


Here are the names you requested. I have also attached page 400 (King Kerley Family) from The History of Brown County 1880-1970 in jpeg format. Any names in the listings below in squared bracketts [-] are found in that history.


Be sure to check for Kerley marriages on the Illinois Marriage Index Online. You can also access it from the main page of our website.


Kerley, Elsie________ ________101  This was Essie in our book index. There was no Elsie. 

Best wishes,

Wow, I had no idea there were so many Kerleys buried in Brown County, and it looks like all of them are the same line.  Any of these that you have time to look up would be fantastic, this page was like finding a goldmine of info.  I guess the main ones would be on page 103 and Elizabeth on 223 but any that you have time to do would be great.

I’m a Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness volunteer here in central NC so I know how much time things like this can take up so I really appreciate anything you can do for me.  Needless to say if you ever need anything from central NC please let me know.

Thanks again,
