I'm not related. I'm just passing this on. Mrs. Patrick Toohill died in 1907, not 1906.

Clinton Register
DeWitt County, Illinois
Friday, January 11, 1907


Mrs. Honora TOOHILL died yesterday at 12 o’clock at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Winnie PEARL, of 1104 North West street. Her maiden name was Honora GLEASON and she was born in Tipperary county, Ireland, in 1838 and came to this country in 1848. In 1862 she was united in marriage to Patrick TOOHILL, who survives her. To this union nine children were born, five girls and four boys: Mrs. Johanna KILEY; John, dying in infancy; Mrs. Anna POWERS; Mrs. Winnie PEARL; Edward TOOHILL; Mrs. Mary PEARL; James; Martin; and Kate TOOHILL. She also leaves one brother, Michael GLEASON, of this city. Almost all the children live in and around Clinton and Wapella near which the home farm is located. Mrs. Toohill came to this city some years ago. She was a kind and loving mother and always worked for the welfare of her family. —Pantagraph

Mr. and Mrs. Toohill were residents of Wilson township many years, moving to Bloomington about four years ago.
