I was glad to see your message. I have a quick question - a few years ago I found information on a Fred Battershall from Illinois - I believe he must have been from Waukegan. I do not have my notes with me. The information came from an old newspaper clipping from the Waukegan Daily News - March 1901, and said that Fred had been a guest at a card party hosted by friends of Mr. & Mrs. Mortimer Kapple. Do you by any chance have any info. on this Fred Battershall or know who he might have been?
I do have some information on Nellie Battershall, but she was a rather distant ancestor. I would like to find more information on George Battershall, Betsey Batttershall-Cady, and Rhoda Battershall-Esau (or Rhoda Batteshall-Rich). These 3 were siblings and the children of William & Emma Battershall. All three were married in Lake County, Illinois or the surrounding area. They were possibly also siblings of my great-great grandfather, Daniel M. Battershall. i would appreciate any info. you might have. Thank you.
