Hardin County, Illinois

Family Trees

I didn't like or appreciate history until I went on a trip to New Orleans with my sister  ;)
What a beautiful rich in culture and history!  I fell in love.
I started gathering information from family members and joined a search engine and realized that
a year membership, just wasn't enough.  I certainly wasn't going to pay again.
I ran into Illinois Trails and here I am.

Through my search for my family history, I found a personal connection with Marion County as well as Gallatin County.
Hardin County I discovered last year when I took the kids to the Shawnee Forest.  It's truly a beautiful place. I fell in love with Elizabethtown.
It's truly a wonder of nature... a must see...
My Grandmother, Frieda Pauline Potter,  was born in Marion County and I'm told my Grandfather, Seymour Larkin Nation

is from Shawneetown, Gallatin County.
