Debord family

Another gem from the book  "Village of Reynolds" 1876-1976 by Lettie Lloyd Bellinger and Irene Davis Rockhold

Not much, but its interesting to see that the Debords are from France.

"Frederick and Mary Owens DeBord and their family came to Illinois in 1874 from Kentucky.
In 1879 they moved to a farm two and one half miles west and one mile south of Reynolds.
The ancestors of the DeBord family came to America from France."

How I relate:

William Bernard Allen (me)

Living Allen (father)

James Elwood Allen (grandfather)

Maude Swartout (great,grandmother)

Alvira A. Debord (great,great grandmother)

Frederick A. Debord - Mary A. Owens great,great,great grandparents (see above)

Below is Alvira's Obit. She died quite young, age 34. It says she suffered an attack from "La Grippe" which is the flu. Maybe the Russian flu?

Death announcement
