Joel Beem was married to Delilah Jane Walton and her mother lived with them in Orangeville, Polly"Mary" Walton nee Ross. He, Joel Beem, went to live with his daughter, Mrs Abraham Stahl, possibly Agnes, and died at her home in Nelson NE. Do you think you might have a Chilton connection to my family listed here?

Including a booklet announcing the Stephenson County Honored soldiers from World War one. These items where hierlooms of my grandparents and as far back as thier grandparents. There are numerous items from draft cards to honorable discharge papers and other very old documents.
Is there a historical society in Freeport that may be interested in preserving this part of the local history?
and how may i get in touch with them?

Surnames: Keehnen, Kuhn My great,great grandfather was Jacob Kuhn, later to be known as Jacob Keehnen.Jacob came to the U.S in 1853.His intent to be a citizen was Sept.21,1857 and his Naturalization Sept.13,1864. On his naturalation paper one of the witnesses was Joseph Kuhn later known as Joseph Keehn or Keehnen. I am trying to determine if they were related. I was in Stephenson County in 1995 to do some research but at the time did not persue info on Joseph.I only worked on Jacob. I know that Jacob owned property. I would like to know if Joseph also owned land? Can you help me? My ULTIMATE GOAL IS TO FIND OUT WHERE JACOB AND JOSEPH CAME FROM IN PURSSIA, GERMANY. If it will help, Jacob died Dec.17, 1905. I am hoping that one of my avenues of research will reveal this to me.I would appreciate any help and⁄or advise you can give me. Thanks! Sister Judi Keehnen C.S.J.
