The Chicago History Journal

The Journal of an Amateur Historian

Sharon Williams

This Weblog is kept by Sharon E. Williams. She says she was a researcher, writer and editor. Now she calls herself an amateur historian and student. I like the depth of her site about Chicago.

  1. Dear.Mr Doug Grant
    My name is Kyung-ho Choi
    and I read your article about the bohemian athletic club.
    Does it still exist?? and Does it have membership reciprocal relationship with bohemian club in San Francisco???

    Thank you..

  2. Kyung-ho Choi:

    Sorry, but the Bohemian Athletic Club of Brockville no longer exists, and the buildings have been torn down quite a while ago.

    Come an visit anyway. There is an active rowing club, the Brockville Rowing Club on the water near the centre of the waterfront.

  3. Mike Myers,cooke county ,Texas

    My great grandfather Hugh Kelley was born in Brockville in 1850, He never knew his birthday that I knew. He walked to Maryland and on 2-2-1865 joined the 13TH Maryland infantry and served until may 1865 and the end of the war. Married Lydia Jones ,born 1858 Springfield , San Bois , Oklahoma ( capitol of the Choctaw indians nation in Oklahoma territory )They had a daughter Lizze in 1882 and moved on to Anadarko by 1900, Hugh bought 80 acres in Caddo county and lived there until he dies in1920.He is buried by Lydia in the Carnegie cemetery and near most of his 7 children. Where would I start to find his birth in Brockville and as he had not parents , who would have taken care of him until he became 14.

    • Not sure if you are still researching but if you haven’t already try the Leeds and Grenville Historical Society. They where a huge help to me…
