Hello everyone and thank you for maintaining this site. I am looking for information on John White Eagle and family. They were once in the Belvidere, Boone County, Illinois area around 1927-1960's. Until his passing my father always carried a photo of John White Eagle and his two sons (appeared to be 16-18 yrs old). I had no date of photo, still searching for it, will post when find. My Father and his family have a special connection with John White Eagle and his family dating back to around early to mid thirties I believe. Hard times for everyone those years! I believe they may have been camped on what is referred to as the 'old fairgounds' in Belvidere/Boone County, Illinois. They may have moved to Dakota's as I hear my Dad's family traveled to visit them, may have had married relation. Any information would be greatly appreciated as this man and his family had a profound effect on my father with memories he cherished.
