My grandfather was Benjamin Wilson Koon [b 10/1921, Dixon, IL d 2004, Aurora, IL], son of Benjamin Anthony Koon [b Nov 1896, Cowells, KY d 1960, Freeport, IL]. As Kankakee is less than a hundred miles from Dixon, and my grandfather used to speak of cousins in Kankakee, I suppose there might be a connection.

I have only begun this search I do not have much more information at this time other than a little info on my great grandmother, Mildred Unangst. She was born May 1903 in Dixon, IL and died in 1923 shortly after giving birth to her second child, Alice Joyce Koon (who married one George Miller and also lived her entire life in Dixon, IL).

Can you tell me if there is a connection with your Kankakee Koon line?

Thanks in advance,
Mark
