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).
