Tinkhams - Homer Illinois and Idaho

I am seeking information on the Tinkhams from Homer Illinois and in Lewiston Idaho. We are writing the history of Homer and we have some unresolved issues with this line. Homer's first historian was Caroline Coffeen Tinkham and we have a short manuscript of hers. We know she wrote a history of the 26th Illinois Volunteers, Charles J. Tinkham's unit in the Civil War. We are looking for photos of Caroline, the manuscript and anything else. The manuscript may be with the Babb family in Lewiston. Any information on the family would be helpful. If you are interested we can send you what we have. Our book is expected to be out in May of 2005.
