Old Photographs Saved From Trash Can ~ #7 Robert Wiley LILLIE (1895-1940)

This is a spin-off of my 52 Ancestors: #14 Albert Spencer LILLIE (1848-1913) ~ Old Photographs Saved From Trash Can blogpost in which I featured a few photos from a collection of old photographs my 4C1R Joe Rooney shared with me. I asked Joe about using the photos and he kindly wrote, Please use them at your will.  I feel it is keeping it in the family and don’t need credit.  If anything, I appreciate your evaluations, identifications and detective work.  I’m hopeful you and yours enjoy them.  On a blog, in a book, above a cloud.”

#7 Robert Wiley LILLIE (1895-1940)

After seeing a link to the Illinois State Archives on Facebook I checked to see if I could update some of the information on the families featured in this series of photographs. Albert Spencer LILLIE and Pernecia Elizabeth GLASS most likely married about 1871 were married 29 April 1872 in Pope County, Illinois, per the Illinois Statewide Marriage Index.

Their 11th and youngest child was Robert Wiley LILLIE born in 1895, the same year as his oldest brother Isaac’s second son Samuel Royalty LILLIE. He married Neele Audrey OWENS on 10 April 1920 in Kentucky. Robert and Neele had two daughters, Roberta Neele (Lillie) BOYER (1921-1991) and Marian Gene (Lillie) NEAL (1924-1975).

Joe Rooney kindly gave me permission to use these photographs on my blog.

Joe ROONEY wrote on 15 February 2015: This collection of photographs was scanned at 300 dpi color by me. The original photos were sent by Sandra Lillie about ten years ago after she found them cleaning out a relative’s garage in Southern Illinois, finding no other takers (suckers). She believes they were a collection by L Vance Lillie. Many of the pictures seemed to be removed from frames or were in albums evidenced by fading characteristics and may have been from other’s collections. I scanned the reverse if there was laboratory advertising or writing. Some of the authors’ identification may be figured out of the handwriting matches. I did not scan the reverse of photos where there was only a three digit number that I believe to be sequence numbers on a roll of film. I didn’t spot any obvious helpful commonalities.
