  • robin gergen My g-grandparents were William Valentine Good and Isabelle Good buried at Oak Grove cemetery, Hillsboro. His death date is 20 May 1915. I can't find an obituary or death notice for him/them. I've located them on the 1910 census of Coffeen Village but they're not listed under death notices or anywhere else I've searched. They were from PA, moved to IL between 1900 and 1910. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
