I am looking for descendants of John Lyne(s) of Morris, Grundy County, IL. He was born about 1833 & came from Lancashire, England to Canada, & eventually settled in Morris, Grundy Co., IL. where he married Mary Emily in 1863 & they had 11 children. He served in 2 different units from Grundy County in the Civil War, Co. F, 11th IL Inf. (1861 - 3 months svc.) & Co. I, 69th IL Inf. (1862 - 3 months svc.). He died 7 August 1905 in Morris. At some point his surname became Lynes as that is the Surname his children and grandchildren had/have and appears on his family headstone in the Morris Evergreen Cemetery. There is also a much older Civil War headstone next to the family headstone that lists him as John Lyne and his unit of service. Additionally, there are quite a few other Lynes buried in Morris, IL. According to his obituary several children moved away, 1 to California. I have more information if anyone is interested or descended from him. I am a great-great grandson.
