Thank you for the offer to do a look-up. My GG-grandparents were married in Mattoon at IC in 1862. I am interested in knowing if there is any information on the Reagan Family in the early settlers book you have. The family came to the Mattoon area in 1853 or 1855 from Ireland.
Edmond (aka Patrick) Reagan and Honera Collins Reagan were both buried in Arcola. I know they have a record of his funeral @ IC ~ 1869. She died in 1858.

Catherine Regan's siblings:
Patrick Reagan, Jr b 1826 Ireland
Edmond b 1824
Michael b 1830
Mary b 1832 aka Honera? m Thos Fields
Sarah b 1833 m Hugh McGurty
John b 1835
Margaret b 1838 m James McCormick

All were born in Ireland, and came to US in the mid-1850's

Thanks again!
Shelly Schmidt
