My great-grandmother was Edna Mary Boies (daughter of Walter and Mary Boies)b. 15 Feb. 1878 in Byron, Ogle Co., IL d. 19 Oct. 1961 in Marengo, McHenry Co., IL m. 18 Oct. 1899 Charles Stanford b. 1872 in Marengo; d. 16 Jan. 1907, son of George Frederick and Sarah Susan Stanford, from Hastings, Sussex, England.
Edna's mother, Mary Bollinger Boies, died when Edna was 10 years old, and Edna was raised by her aunt and uncle, William and Lottie Boies in Coral, IL. When she was 21, she married Charles Stanford in Marengo. Charles owned a farm a mile from Marengo in Riley Twp., McHenry Co., which he called "Fairlight" after a village near Hastings, England.
I am looking for any information at all on my Boies/Stanford ancestors. All replies appreciated. Thank you
