Edward, was born in Petersburg,IL in 1922. His father was Albert Eckhoff and mother Anna (Bell). Little information known except what has been provided by Illinois Soldiers and Sailors Children's Home, Normal, IL, where Edward became a ward at the age of 2. According to the state records, mother, Anna, was ill with t b and Albert deserted the family. Edward lived at ISSCS until joining the navy. He served in WWII ,was honorably discharged. He married Jeanne Granger Eckhoff, in San Francisco, CA. Edward worked at State Farm Insurance Co in Bloomington,IL, and in Lincoln,NE. where he passed away from cancer at age 26. Jeffrey was born 11/28/1945, He was 5 years old when his father died. I am very interested in suggestions on how to connect with the Eckhoff family. Very little to go on, as a result - my husband is the first and last in this Eckhoff line - Any dir! ection would be helpful. My husband and his father (from looking at pictures) both have dark hair, Jeff is about 5 ft 8. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
