I am searching for every Ferdinandsen connected to Champaign / Urbana. My G-Grandfather Christian Carl Ferdinandsen emigrated with his hole family from Denmark to USA in 1891. He and his family ended up in Champaign Urbana. The family comprised his wife Sidse Marie born Sorensen and at least 10 children. Christian is said to have become the first selling gardener in Champaign. He had greenhouses and sold trees, bushes etc. Christian was born December 17, 1848 and died March 10, 1923. His death and burial is mentioned in an article in "The Urbana Christian" dated April 5, 1923. At his death his wife continued to live at 302 South Cottage Grove. His wife died July 10, 1943. Any help would be highly appreciated.

I am looking for information on a Family by the name of Freeman that resided in Champaign Co. Champaign/Urbana area in the 1890s. Wilhelmina L. Freeman (known as Louise or Minnie) married John A. Newcomb on 12-13-1892. Minnies brother George married Bessie Newcomb/Newcombe on 1-9-1896 and Bessies apparently remarried to a Fred Cramer on 10-16-1900. Another sibling Ada H. Freeman was married also in the Champaign area to William H. Rauch on 10-30-1893. The listing in the Illinois Marriage Index lists Ada as Alda H. Furman, which is incorrect. The mother of these 3 Freeman children was Hester (Cooper) Freeman wife of Henry C. Freeman. The Freeman family moved westward from New York to Illinois. Hester signed the marriage application for Ada so I believe the Father had died in either NY or IL before 1893. Another daughter Mary Eleanor Freeman married while they were still in NY, but came to Illinois with her husband John Michael Bausch and settled in the same area as her family.
