(1920 Census age 55 Shannon Twp, Carroll Co IL) "Romanza (Maggie) Greeley came to Grandpa and Grandma's place when I was there. She was an old lady then. The photo of her school back in Stephenson County, Illinois shows a young woman about 17 years old, who looks totally in charge of the pupils. She had three children, but I only knew Gladys and her husband, George Lau from visits to their home in St Paul Minesota?." by Ernest James Bird

Jasper Bobb Mallory was a railroad conductor from Freeport, Illinois, a portly man who always wore a dark blue suit and had the requisite watch with gold chain across his vest.

She apparently lived to serve the poor people of Freeport. She gave everything she and Uncle Jap had for the cause. She fed the poor and neglected Uncle Jap. The had no children, but raised several orphans?." by Ernest James Bird b 5 Aug 1921, son of Olive Rose Mallory and Frank Bird.
