Marriage certificate #1356 McDonough county, Illinois, MILLIKIN. Clara I. HENDEL, Robert Walter married 07/26/1882 Robert W. Hendel Junior relates that: "It seems definite as I have an account that my grandmother wrote describing the mine picnics when she was a girl, festive occasions for which the whole town (Colchester) turned out. She had also told me once that two of her brothers died as a result of methane "black damp" poisoning in the mines. This is not supported by any of the bio information that Harry D. Galley has, however it said that her brother George had been a miner, then a security guard at a mine, and died of pneumonia. I wonder if this traced to methane poisoning while he was mining."
