Ice in Matchtown
This message I found lost in my emails from Dan Grooms. Sorry Dan, for not putting in online sooner.
Dan writes: "I saw that the location for your "Ice in Matchtown" photo is unknown. Though I am not certain of the location, I have a possible suggestion. A section of Marseilles, Illinois was known as Matchtown. It was near the Illinois River and the house in the picture looks like the type of houses in the area. Again, I am not sure, but I thought I would pass along that information".
