What did you find on the Carbine family from Chicago Cook County Illinois area? I am in search of a direct decendant of my family's, a Thomas aka Tom Carbine (the last name spelling could be different, although the obituaries I have linking him all use this spelling). He was born about 1856-1860 in Chicago and Died Aug 8th, 1938 in Chicago. He's buried in the Elmwood Cemetery in River Grove Illinois. I have his death record confirming all this information, but I can't get any farther with him. He married an Elvina or Aluina (possibly a maiden name or previous married name of Briggs). They had one daughter Mary Edith Carbine and 2 sons. I only know the name of one of the sons, Fred Wallace Carbine. The other son passed away prior to 1937, according to Mary's obituary. Also, Mary's obituary says she was born and raised in Chicago.
