Cass County Illinois Family History

This photo is of my GG-grandparents, August John and Mary (May Lily) Preckwinkle, and two of their children. The oldest is my great uncle Rance John (b. 1886) and the youngest is my great grandfather Harry August. The photo was taken in a studio named Shoemaker's in Beardstown some time in the early 1890s, as my great grandfather was born on Jan. 12, 1889 and he looks to be about 3 or 4 years old.                                                                                    

August John Preckwinkle was born and died in Beardstown (b. 1862 - d.1902). Rance and Harry moved to Hunderton County, New Jersey and became farmers.
