Re: William Disney, Illinois, died in 1919

William A Disney died in Buffalo (or Buffalo Twp) in Sangamon County on 26 May 1919. His death was recorded the following day. His age at death is not in the index. I did not find any information on Lillian Henry Disney.

Nor did I find their marriage, but, as was often the case then, I found probable brothers and sisters marrying in Sangamon Co. On 17 Jan 1893, Rufus Disney married Rosa Henry. I suppose that could be our subject couple, but I seriously doubt it.

There were several Disney deaths recorded in Sangamon Co at about that time. None show an age at death, and I abridge:

William A Buffalo 1919
Charles Hurt Illiopolis 1921
Eddie do (ditto) 1918
Sarah Jane do 1931
Chester I Mechanicsburg Twp 1918
Hannah J Springfield 1946

You can easily surmise there were families in Warrensburg, Decatur, and Harrisburg, too.

All of this information is on the Illinois Statewide database webpage at

Genealogy has gotten a lot easier in the past decade!
