Greetings,I am trying to trace my ancestors. I know this: My great grandfather "FRED TADD SR." was born in 1859 and died in 1945. He married "Elizebeth Bachelor"(1858-1936). He farmed S of Ashton IL on the "Killmer Farm". Left for Melvin IA and bought 240 acres. All five children went with, Bill (1884-1979), Bert (1883-1965), Fred Jr. (1886-1964), Frank (1886-1971) and Etta (1893-1960). After the depression all the kids but Frank my grandfather moved back to Ashton Il. Bert went to Dekalb IL. and was a carpenter. He married Clara Krug. Etta remained in Ashton and married "Henry Year" had a daughter "Ardyce" she died of lung cancer. Bill had a son named "Donald" and was last in Oquawaka IL. Bert had a son named "Clarence" and he was a warden at a prison in PA. "Fred Jr. lived in Ashton and purchased 120 acres N of town. Fred married "Della Heibenthal" had a son "Verlis" he married "Shirley Miller" 1 son died at birth. "Paul" the second child was born in 1946. I have contacted Paul and exchanged info.
My father Wyman was the son of "Frank" who lost his farm in Toronto SD during the depression, rented land in Clear Lake SD, then he bought a farm by Lake Wilson MN. Frank worked in a gas station in Pipestone MN and my dad "Wyman" worked the farm until being drafted in 1944.

If any of this makes sense to you please contact me ( or 320-269-6515 work 320-269-6623 home.
ANY information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
"FRED SR." at this point is the ROADBLOCK to my past.
