    1. [ILWINNEB] EDDY Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel via
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph of Lulu EDDY which was taken at the Wheat Studio in Rockford, IL. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1890's with Lulu likely in her teens at the time the photograph was taken. Based on limited research I was able to locate the following information about Lulu and her family: Mary Lulu EDDY was b. 3 Oct 1872 in Rockford, IL to parents William EDDY (1843-1899) and Hannah Matilda CARMICHAEL (1844-1935). Lulu was one of 3 children born to this couple including siblings, Ernest Wilder EDDY (1868-1944) and Fred Orville EDDY (b. 1871). Lulu married Ernest Leonard LUTHER (1868-1953) and had two children, a daughter Breta M. LUTHER GRIEM (1897-1980) and a son Melvin Eddy LUTHER (b. 1899). Lulu died in Madison, WI on 1 Apr 1961 and is buried in the Forest Hill Cemetery in Madison, WI. Census records provide the following details: 1880 census of Rockford, IL: Eli R. EDDY, age 71, a Farmer, born RI, parents born RI Sallie EDDY, wife, age 65, Keeping House, born NY, parents born NY William EDDY, son, age 37, a Farm Laborer, born NY Hannah M.

    3. Shelley - I am no relation to the family, but I did find a family tree on ancestry.com entitled Bella Javidan Family Tree posted by lajuana27 who appears to be the granddaughter of Melvin Eddy Luther and great granddaughter of Mary Lulu Eddy. If you have access to ancestry you can try reaching her through ancestry connect. If you do not have access I will endeavor to contact her, and with your permission, give her your email.
