Hi everyone,

My name is Emily D Drennen. My ggggrandfather was George Plummer Drennen (1856-1938), s/o Thomas J Drennen. And then I run into a brick wall. In the Cordova (IL) Cemetery, Thomas J (Born WVA 1824 and died Cordova, IL 1906) is buried near James Drennen (1796-1867), but I haven't gotten anything to tie them together as father and son. My hunch is that James is his uncle. No idea who his dad would be. (Thomas J Drennen is my direct-line ancestor and it is driving me batty to keep bumping into a brick wall.)

Does anyone have any access to the Cordova Town Hall to look at the Cordova Cemetery records? If so, I'd **love** biographical info on anybody listed below, but especially for Thomas J Drennen. Getting a copy of his death certificate from 1906 would be a major score, too.

Thanks in advance for any clues!!! :)
