    1. [ILBOONE] HILL Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Ernest HILL which was taken at the N. M. Youndt Studio in Belvidere, Illinois. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1870's or 1880's with Ernest likely about 2 years old at the time the photograph was taken. In addition to his name, someone has also written "John HILL'S son" on the back of the photograph. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information regarding Ernest and his family: Ernest Charles HILL was b. 8 May 1877 in Boone Co. IL and in 1918 when he completed his draft registration documents listed his occupation as Fireman with his employer the National Sewing Machine Co. At that time he was living at 6 Meadow St. in Belvidere, IL and listed his nearest relative as his sister, Mrs. W. J. TOLLAND or Davenport, IA. I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of family. I am told that you might have information regarding this family in your records. Thanks, Shelley
