Moving forward to 1901, I found Bernard Dirks (as B. Dirks) owning 138 acres in Honey Creek, Adams County, Illinois, as shown here in section 35 of that township. His son, Bernard Dirks, Jr., owned 60 acres in section 36.
And of course, I made a copy of the title page so I know from where I obtained the information.
I'm a genealogy researcher, writer and speaker who is still looking for the answer to several family history questions.
I also give family history seminars and lectures on a variety of genealogy topics.
