My grandfather, Rufus, and his 1st wife had 2 children and he and his 2nd wife, Verna(nee McGaughey) had 6 children. Opal, Bernice, Viola, Wayne, Kathryn, Leola (my mother) and Edwin are deceased. My Aunt Madaline is still alive and she is 93.
My mother was married to Howard Runge, who is also deceased. My grandparents did have a farm. Rufus died at a relatively young age and my grandmother and the children ran the farm. I am the youngest of 3 children. My brother, Gordon(born in 1939) lives in California and my sister, Deanne(born in 1944) and I(born in 1947) both live in Illinois. My Uncle Wayne had done work on the Wirsing geneology so I am familiar with some of the names that you mentioned. I have met Lincoln and Thomas at the Wirsing Reunion. My husband, Paul, and I have 3 children and 6 grandchildren.
My grandparents came from Penn. to Illinois in 1911 or 1912.
I do like searching for relatives and am interested in the stories that they have to tell.
