Unless there was more than one line of Levitts in Effingham, my grandmother must be one of the people you're searching for:

Marjorie May Levitt, b. 9/18/1899 in Effingham, IL. married Chauncy Jay (C.J.) Correll, b. 6/17/1896 as soon as she was 18 and he was back from WWI (against her father's wishes). I don't know the date. They moved to St. Louis. She was an only child. Sorry, I don't know her father's name - I do know he apparently died of Alzheimer's in the 30's. Her mother's name was Clara (maiden name unknown). Clara's sister was Carrie, who married Ross McKinnon (this has a point) - Their son, Clyde McKinnon married Pearl Correll (niece of Marjorie's husband, C.J.). Pearl still lives in Effingham - if you're there talk to her, she knows tons more than I do. My grandmother died in March 1963.

Also, if you find out anything new, please let me know here (this e-mail address expires in 12/99).
