I am looking for info on James Lanthorn/Lauthorn/Lanthron b. 1867 or 68. d. 1910 in Ohio, who married Ida Melvina Thompson b. Dec. 29, 1872 and d. Dec. 7, 1922 in Chicago, IL. They had five children Claude O. James, Mabel, William Eugene, and Theodore. The father James worked for the Railroad and was hit and killed by a train in 1910. Sometime after his death Ida with children moved to Chicago, IL. Our family records shows James's father as James and no mothers name. It is possible that George Lanthorn and Mary Shipton were James grandparents. Am also seeking info on the son's James, William Eugene, and Theodore. All three son's spent alot of their lives in prison. Theodore died at 26 in Ky after being shot. William Eugene was a member of the Roger Touhy Gang of Chicago. He died after being shot by the FBI in 1942 after escaping from Stateville Prison with Touhy and others. Any info regarding them would be deeply appreciated.
