Still hoping to find a little more about the family of Eli Ditzler and Celia Babcock Ditzler of Naperville (DuPage Co) and Hinsdale Illinois. This couple is not related except by marriage, but they were very close to my family in Illinois in the 1870s-1930s.
Eli's sister, Hannah Ditzler Alspaugh, was a fascinating writer, teacher and artist, and I have excerpts of her diaries on this site: http://www.patsabin.com/dupage/hannahdiary.htm
She includes some basic genealogical info in the intro.
One of the sons of Eli and Celia Ditzler was Hugh W. Ditzler, b. about 1871 in Naperville, IL. He was an artist and illustrator. I'd like to put together a bio for him and keep hoping to find someone who has more info that I have. Here's a little about his art:
The only information I have on Hugh's siblings is below:
