I have searched around for a long time to find one of you boys since Joe and America have both gone. I guess I didn't look under my nose. I was told that you had moved away from here.
I am Nancy (Eatherton) Lillie. My mom is Lucille (Eatherton) Bennett. I have two sisters, Lynn (Ferguson) and Marjorie (Eatherton). I don't expect you to remember me from East Peoria, but that is where I was born and lived for awhile. I am the youngest of the 3 of us girls and I live in Canton.
I was baptised in the St.Boniface Church in Peoria in 1960 and your dad and mom was my godparents. I knew them very well as a child. I remember the Wild Goose well and went to visit Joe there often. I just don't have anything from that part of my life. No pictures, nothing. Joe was a part of my life that I could never forget and I do remember you from living close to my Aunt Mildred Hosbrough.
Thank you for writing to me. I guess what I'm asking here is that I would like a little more history and to see if I could get a picture of him or a picture of Joe and America.
This may seem strange, but it's important to me.
I don't have your email address, so I had to go through this message board to get back in contact with you. My email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
if you care to write back.
Thank you again.
