A relative informed me that my grandfather (deceased) had been the banquet manager at Chevy Chase and was fondly remembered by the Giancana family. Do you have any records of a Frank E Bourget who worked there?

THANK YOU,

I was born and raised in Wheeling, West Virginia and now live in California. I am very curious as to why your village was named after Wheeling, WV. It also seems more than a coincidence that your high school has the same colors and wildcat mascot as my Alma mater in Wheeling, WV. I hope you can enlighten me.

Thanks.

I am trying to understand the history of why Wheeling, ILL is named after Wheeling, WV. I was born and raised in Wheeling, WV and now live in California.

You have a very nice website. Congratulations for your good work.

My grandmother was Lorraine Haben and she was a large part of the society until she passed. Thank you for never forgetting the past and my grandmother

My grandfather's house was on Milwaukee Ave. Next door was a machine shop and next to that a huge hotel that would have been elegant in its day. As a child going there every week in the 50's I watched much of Wheeling being built.

Here are things that I remember or that I think I remember!!!
1965 we lived 2 or 3 houses down from the Fire Station. I am told the station is not there anymore. My mother worked as a waitress at Woody’s.
On one of the corners, there was a gas station, I believe it was Sunoco; were they the ones with the dinosaur shaped soap? The gas station had a monkey in a cage in the back. And there was an IGA on the road as well. From 66 to 67, Mom worked for Willie Necker and we lived above the Kennel until we moved to Florida. I went to Aptakistic Tripp (sp?) elementary school that year You could walk straight from the Kennel across the fields and get to the back of the school. My 4th grade teacher was Ms. Dickey; used to make you write dictionary definitions when you were acting up.

Moved to Wheeling when I was 2 (1956). Lived & grew up in the Meadowbrook subdivision. Many fond memories. The house I grew up in was recently sold (2019) for the first time as both my parents, Pat & Wedge, have passed on. I came to this site looking for info & old photos of Meadowbrook Park when the Sabre Jet was parked there. It was good growing up in Wheeling.. those were simpler times. Much has changed but not all has changed. There is still some of the wheeling of my childhood that remains.

David,
Your Mon and Dad are key members of the Historical Society, Museum, and LolliPop Lane. They are in our memories constantly, especially at Lollipop Lane time of the year. We all miss them.

I lived near Chevy Chase from 1958 to 1970. We knew the Johnson brothers and spent many hours swimming in the pool and ice skating on the water hazards. A very different time for children and fond memories. Thank you for maintaining this site.

You have an excellent website. My ancestor on my mother's side lived in Wheeling from about 1840 to 1860. I am in the process of writing about their lives and have found much helpful information on your site. I am also ordering separately one of your historical publications.

I enclose a photo of James Parker who owned the tavern where the meeting was held where the first community officers were selected. He lived into Wheeling from about 1840 until his death in 1855. He is buried in the Dundee Road Cemetery.
