If you are looking for help with a Clay County ancestor line, please submit family group sheet information along with your challenge.
I have written a biography of John Riley Tanner of Clay County (Illinois
Governor 1897-1901. Dios Carlos Hagel 1839-1898 was a former States Attorney
for Clay County. He was married to one of Tanner sisters? I assume a sister
since he was Tanner's brother in law. Could identify the wife's name and
possible relationship to Tanner?

My GG Uncle William E. Fraim (died 1959) is buried in the Kneff Cemetery
in Stanford Township. His obituary states he is buried there. However, I
cannot find this information online via Find A Grave and other similar
His father, my GG grandfather Elvis Fraim (died November 1911 in Clay County) may also be buried in the Kneff Cemetery in Stanford Township.
Would there be anyone whom I could contact or who might be able to take a look to see if the aforementioned relatives (Elvis Fraim, d. 1911 and William E. Friam, d. 1959) are buried in Kneff Cemetery and to see if there is a headstone for them?
Thank you very much for your time and help. It is much appreciated.

My great grandma Vida Johnson Sloan was from Clay
county. Some of the names include Johnson, Miller, Lackey, Jennings and much
more! I have tons of photos, postcards, and letters. I’d like to contribute
them for you to post. [see Hedrick Collection]
My gg grandma Avrilla Lackey Johnson Jennings was
married to Joseph Jennings, I believe. He had children before their
marriage. I have tons of pictures that I cannot identify. Maybe someone
visiting this site will recognize them.
