This website is loaded with tons of information and I strongly suggest that you use the "Search this site" function at the top right corner if you are searching for info on someone in particular by putting the -SURNAME ONLY- in that box . Otherwise you will get too many unrelated results. The search function will not find pictures that are in the photo albums, so be sure to check out the "Photos " page.  Otherwise, just browse the many pages and enjoy!!

This site started originally as one page on my family website in 2001 about the "Chatsworth Wreck", which has always been of interest to me,and a few pictures in my albums.
As I accumulated more and more information from books and online, it took so much storage space that I started
"Chatsworth Illinois Memories" as a site of it's own in 2002.

I hope you enjoy the site !!
