So, Hurricane Gustav only wrecked a week of my life, not several months like Katrina….
Anyway, I’m back!
Found ancestry.com has Illinois state census and found Joseph Golladay living near David Whitney. Continues to sort of support the Golladay/Light/Whitney links.
Still working on the Long’s in Buchanan County too. I’ve had no luck clearing up the discrepency with Albert T. Long’s father’s name. Sherman seems to be right, but there’s no record of him other than Albert’s Obit.
