ANDERBERG, TEMPERLY posted by Mary H. Musgrave on Saturday, February 6, 1999

My mother is the oldest child of Alfred and Gerta Temperly. She was born in Council Hill 6/28/08. Her mother came to American from Sweden in approximately 1905. Alfred's father was Thomas Temperly, but there are several Thomases and I'm trying to determine what was his middle initial for sure. Thomas was married to Sarah J. Temperly before being married to Edna Anderberg Temperly, Alfred's father. Any information is welcomed. My cousin Joanne Temperly has done much more than me. She is the daughter of Thomas and Edna's son, Charlie Temperly and grew up in Scales Mound.

CARROLL posted by Dan Flynn on Thursday, February 18, 1999

Jeremiah Carroll is a son of John Carroll and Johanna Buckley. As well as Jeremiah there were Denis, Michael, Cornelius, Mary and Robert that settled in Jo Daviess County in the 1850's. (possibly a John but I am not sure on him). Another son Timothy came in the 1860. Jeremiah, Denis, Robert, Cornelius and Timothy are all buried in Plum River Catholic Cemetery, by Emloville. This cemetery is refered to as "The old Catholic Cemetery". I am in the process of trying to flesh out these branches and it is entirely possible that the Joe and Daniel mentioned are decendents of these brothers. Can you shed any more light on Joe?
