My ggm was Delia May Terhune (married Andrew Jackson Cole), born in Compton Ill., 1878; the next to youngest of ten.
Other siblings were Mary Ann (Johnson), Katherine Ann (Holdren), Alida (Babbit), Bennie, Delbert, Bertha (?), Carrie (Butler), Ada (Bean), Henry. Their father was John Nicolas Terhune, born in New Jersey (date?) and their mother-- an Irish girl, Catherine Ann Carylone May.

I also have a photograph in my possesion of a handsome young man-- "Charles Terhune", whom I presume may be John's brother?

My great-grandparents moved from Illinois to Thomas Oklahoma, but some moved to Algona, Iowa and one or two to Hutchison, Kansas. If there are any descendants from any of these siblings who have further information, I would be pleased to hear.
