Hi Dan, nice site. I'm researching my Brother-in-law's ancestry. He is descended from John Justin Hagaman's brother, Albert (1842-1908, who had one son only, three grandchildren only, two of whom, girls, I will need to visit Macoupin County to continue tracking). There's a Hagaman researcher on line with lots of good info at findagraves, and a researcher who has done a good job with Mary Severn's ancestors (or it looks like it--until I see the original documents myself).

thank you for the info

Dan, Thanks for giving me this site. It is really good to see the old pictures from times gone by. It was really special seeing all of you at Dad Funeral. Thank you for all of you support for Mom. She is a really strong woman, and if I get her to see this site I'm sure that she will have alot to add from her collection of pictures and info books. Dawnal Butcher-Mahan

Your father touched a lot of lives.......I remember the long talks we used to have standing in a duck blind with nothing but a gentle breeze listening in on the conversation...those were wonderful times

Hi there,
I'm looking for information on the Jacobys in Germany. My husband's grandfather was Walter William, who I believe was Casper's nephew. We are making a trip to Germany in a few weeks and we would like to visit some of the ancestral stomping grounds. Also, you have a picture that I would love to have a copy of and I can't seem to snag it from your website. Would you be able to email it to me? Sincerely, Christine Drury

Christine please send us your email and I will send you a picture and mor info

I'm not related but I came across the will of Philip Heinrich Wilhelm Jacoby( b: 12 Jan 1851 d: 23 Dec 1899) while doing research on my home in St. Louis,MO. I was hoping to get in contact with a family member that could tell me a bit more about him. My research indicates he might have been a methodist preacher. Thanks!

Nancy Begley Pennell - June 11th, 2017 at 4:32 PM
I am stunned to have found this information online. And so happy. I am the granddaughter of Mary Laffey Begley, daughter of Kate Redington and John Laffey. I have been putting together online photo albums and other information of my family, which includes the Begley family. Mary Laffey married John Begley, and they lived in Schenectady NY. I just posted a letter written by my uncle James Begley in one of the albums from around 1910 or so, when he visited the Redingtons, Bauers, Robinsons and Parkers around Christmas time, in Hagaman. And I just took a look at the Redington family tree, with all your names on it. So interesting. I would appreciate hearing back from you if possible. I live in Glenville NY. So, Hi to my relatives, Nancy Begley Pennell
Nancy Begley Pennell - June 11th, 2017 at 5:04 PM
I just wrote a little bit ago and thought you might be interested in the letter my uncle James Begley wrote to his family from Hagaman, Ill, when he was visiting at Christmas time about year 1910 He talks about visiting with a lot of folks there. Here it is. Kind regards, Nancy Begley Pennell.

"Friday the 13, (approximately 1910)

Say Ma, are you still dreaming about your loving Shamus (Irish for James)?

Dear Father, Mother and family.

Rec%u2019d my Christmas bundle and was certainly well pleased to think that I was remembered even by my kid brother %u201COwen%u201D

I suppose he is growing to be quite a big boy and I often wish I were back to take him on my knee and have him sing for me, Ask him if he remembers %u201CTootsin Van Doodsin%u201D (sic) Well, I spent the day in Hagaman (Illinois) and had a pretty good time, but I left in (?) of the many happy Xmas%u2019s spent at good old 910.

Stayed at Robinson%u2019s Xmas Eve and at Phillip Redington%u2019s on Sunday. Drove over to call on Parkers Monday. I had dinner with the Bauers and came back to (?) on the 4:20 train.

I did not receive my gifts until I arrived here, so that I was not able to give Mrs. Robinson her needlework.

Was expecting to go up over New Years, but too much visiting might wear out my welcome. Mamie ( or May Me as she spells it) presented me with a handsome muffler and I gave all of them a neat remembrance of my visit at no little expense.

Took up a suit coat containing twenty-one presents and even then I didn%u2019t have enough to give the children.

There are some cousins in that little town and I haven%u2019t seen them all yet.

Anna Redington lives about 8 miles from Hagaman and she has a big family. It was too cold for us to go over to see her and I will have to call some other time.

Well, I am still working, although things are very dull.

Hope that this finds you all in the best of health and happiness. Will write more next time. Your loving son and bro, Jim. Did mother go to Boston?"

Note: Redington, Bauer, Parker, Robinsons are all cousins of the Begley family on the mother%u2019s side. The Laffey side.
