Lawrence,

Illinois has a nice website that allows you to conduct searches for Black Hawk War veterans, here: http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/departments/archives/blkhawk.html

I dropped your ancestors names in the search engine and came up with nothing. But perhaps the spelling is different than you typed it on your message. You could search just their last name to see if they appear in the records.

It helps if you know what county they might have lived in at the time of their enlistment.

Good luck.
