I am researching my family and have hit a brickwall with the Lawson's of LaSalle County, IL. My
gr grandmother, Catherine (Katie) Lawson was reportedly born in Streator, IL, parents told were John Lawson and Mary Scott who immigrated from England about 1884-1885. Her olders sisters, Willhemina (Willirend, aka Minnie) married Frank E. Pickering in Streator in 1894 and Alice married Frederick Lawton in Streator in 1895. They both were born in England. Alice listed her place of birth on her board of health form as "north of England". Unfortunately, Minnie's boh form is missing, but someone on another tree listed her birthplace as South Shields, Durham, England. Searches in the area find no listings for her or Alice. Dates of birth for Minnie: 15 May 1878 & Alice: July of 1876/7.
Other siblings born in IL include Katie b 1888, Sarah b 1890 and William b 1893. I have lots of bio information on Sarah as she married a businessman in Indiana; Sarah was living with Minnie in the 1910 FC for Danville, IL and Willliam was living with Alice in Streator. Katie was listed as "adopted daughter" to James and Charlotte Wray of Streator, IL. I would appreciate any help in getting more information about the family and the "adoption" of my gr grandmother. Our friends across the pond came up empty and suggested I post here.  Thanks.
