    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Laura A. STEVENSON which was taken at the Shively Studio in Decatur, IL. The photograph is dated 26 Apr 1887 and notes that Laura is 3 years old at the time. Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information regarding Laura and her family: Laura STEVENSON was b. Apr 1884 in Monticello, IL to parents Wilbur F. STEVENSON (1842-1920) and Alice TALLMAN (1850-1929). Laura was one of 5 children born to this couple including, Evan; Ida Schalk; Lydia; Laura; and Mary Elizabeth STEVENSON, all born between 1872 and 1889. Laura married Jonas Joseph William AYRE (1882-1944) and together they had a son, Robert Stevenson AYRE (1912-1997). Her sister Lydia married into the BOGGS Family and died in 1931 in Morgan County, IL and her sister Ida died in 1971 in Scottsdale, AZ. Census records provide the following details: 1900 census of Monticello, IL: Wilber F. STEVENSON, age 51, born Nov 1842, married 29 years, born KY, parents born KY/OH, a Landlord Allie T. STEVENSON, wife, age 49, born Dec 1850, married 29 years, 5 children/5 living, born OH, parents born OH Evan STEVENSON, son, age 27, born Sept 1872, born IL, a Lawyer Lydia STEVENSON, dau, age 18, born Feb 1882, born IL, at School Laura STEVENSON, dau, age 16, born Apr 1884, born IL, at School Mary STEVENSON, dau, age 10, born Jun 1889, born IL, at School Susan FASOA, Mother, age 70, born Feb 1830, a widow, 5 children/3 living, born OH, parents born OH I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to its rightful place, with a family member. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley
