His Was a Railroad Family (A picture of Edward Underwood was also

With the preservation of the Illinois Central Railroad Depot in Amboy
as the "Depot Museum," this community is keeping alive the memory of
the many Amboyans who were a part of Amboy's railroad history.

One of those was Edward P. Underwood (pictured above), an ICRR
Engineer, who retired in 1937 at the age of 65. He went to work for
the IC at the age of 17. At 22 he became an engineer and was "at the
throttle" until his retirement.

Mr Underwood had two brothers and one sister. Together with their
parents, Franklin and Mary Underwood, they lived on West Division
Street in a house that is now occupied by the Russ Janssen family.
His brother Frank was an engineer for the Great Northern Railroad,
running from Dubuque, Iowa to Sycamore, Ill., where he and his family
lived. His next brother, "Charlie," was an engineer for the Southern
Pacific Railroad, running from De Soto, Mo. to St. Louis. The family
lived in De Soto. Both Frank and "Charlie" were married to Amboy

The sister, mentioned above, was Elizabeth who married James Lavelle,
an Amboyan who was an engineer on the IC, running from Freeport to
Clinton. Their daughter is Mrs. John (Frances) McGowan who lives on
North Jefferson Avenue, Amboy. Her family home was in Freeport but
she has been an Amboy resident for a number of years.

Ed Underwood's original run was from Amboy to Minonk on Engine 1909.
The family lived in Freeport for a few years while he worked out of
there but for most of his years "on the road," he and his family
maintained their home at 42 North Mason Avenue, Amboy in the
residence now occupied by Betty and Nancy Anderson.

Engineer Underwood's last run, from which he retired, was an engineer
of the IC passenger train (which went through Amboy) from Freeport to
Clinton. He was a member of St. Patrick's Church, Amboy, and Keenan
Council, Knights of Columbus.

Mr. Underwood was married to Sarah J. Holleran, also a native
Amboyan. She preceded him in death at the age of 62 in 1936. Two
sons, Franklin and Kenneth, died at an early age. His daughter,
Geraldine "Dode" died in 1974.

Mr Underwood died in 1941 at the age of 69. Surviving him are four
daughters: Mrs Olive Belsey of Nalcrest, Fla., Mrs Bernice Fitts of
St. Joseph, Mich., Mrs Mary Frances Davidson of Pompano Beach, Fla.,
and Mrs Virginia Ehman of Indianapolis, Ind. There are also two
grandsons and three great-grandchildren, all living in California.

7/31/94 Visited Amboy Museum, old Amboy depot, looked at a book
called a "Train Register" Sep. - Oct. 1929. "Underwood" was the
engineer of engine #1609 on the run from Amboy to Clinton and return
the next day. There were numerous entries during this period. It
appeared that the trains were made up of freight cars.

Dixon Evening Telegraph - November 10, 1941- Pg. 4, Col. 4


The funeral of Edward P. Underwood, 69, of Amboy , an employee of the
Illinois Central railroad for 38 years before his retirement in 1937,
who passed away Saturday morning at his home on North Mason avenue,
Amboy, was held at 9:00 this morning at St. Patrick's Church in
Amboy, with burial in St. Partick's cemetery.

Mr. Underwood made his home in Amboy all his life with the exception
of 10 years spent in Freeport. He was born May 20, 1872, the son of
Franklin and Mary Gallagher Underwood. He entered the employ of the
Illinois Central railroad when 17 years old and for 44 years was a
locomotive engineer.

He was married in April, 1894 to Sarah Holleran in Holy Name
Cathedral at Chicago. Mrs. Underwood died July 5, 1936. Two sons
also preceded him in death.

Surviving are five daughters, Mrs. Olive MacDonald of Chicago, Mrs.
Bernice Fitts of Evanston, Mrs. Mary Frances Davidson of Pittsburgh,
PA, Miss Geraldine Underwood and Mrs. Virginia Bondi of Amboy, and a
grandson, Philip Underwood Bondi of Amboy.

Grave location: Saint Patrick's Cemetery, Lot #168, Amboy, Ill

Heading south from Amboy, enter cemetery on the third road, beneath
the arch, and headed towards the cross, which is toward the rear.
UNDERWOOD tombstone is located on the left side about 2/3 of the way
towards the cross. The headstone is very distinctive as it looks
like 5 logs stacked 2X2X1. Buried there are: Edward and Sara; sons,
Franklin and Kenneth, both of whom died very young; daughter,
Geraldine, and granddaughter, Sara Josephine Ehman. Sara Ehman was
the infant daughter of Virginia Underwood and John Ehman.

Discussed grandparents with my mother, Virginia E. (Underwood) Ehman.
She disclosed the following facts that, prior, I had either not
heard, or did not associate with anything. 1) Edward P. did not go
to school beyond 8th grade. 2) At some time during his teen age
years he worked as a bell hop at a hotel in Chicago. 3) Sometime
during his early teenage years, he and his best friend, Arthur
"Dutch" Edwards, stole an elephant from a circus in Dixon and were
walking it down the tracks back towards Amboy. The elephant was
"rescued" when the circus people caught up with them and shot at them
with buckshot,

apparently hitting Dutch, but not seriously. 4) His family didn't
want him to go with Sara Holleran because her family was so poor.
They knew each other and dated until Sara went to Chicago to work.
After no word from Sara, he started to date Genevieve McGinnis. They
(Ed & Sara) started going together again after Sara returned from
Chicago for a dance. Then, they figured out that his sister,
Melissa, and his Mother, were destroying the letters from Sara. He
then fixed up his brother Charlie with Genny because she was a nice
girl and should stay in the family. (See Charles F. Underwood Family
Made a request at the Cook County Marriage License Clerk to obtain a
copy of Edward and Sara's license.
Received a copy of Edward and Sara's license. It shows that EDWARD
P. UNDERWOOD, of Amboy, Illinois, age 23, applied for a license to
marry Sadie Howland, of Amboy, Illinois, age 21, on August 5, 1895,
and that they were married on August 6, 1895. They were married by a
catholic priest at Holy Name. Considering that Edward's new wife was
very pregnant when they got married, we can say that Edward was a
respectable man and made an "honest" woman out of Sara. (See notes

413 Francois Valle was born on Jan 2, 1716 in Beauport, Quebec, Canada. He was christened on the Jan 3rd. Francois came to Ste Genevieve in 1749 and founded the Valle Mining Company. Francois was born to Charles La Valle and Genevieve Marcoux. All of the Valle's from Ste Genevieve descend from Charles and Genevieve.

Valles' Mines started when Francois Valle came here from Quebec in 1749 to buy lead from the Indians and stayed to mine. 251 years later, the Valle Mining Company* labors on in a Reclamation Project of the 8 square miles of lands. Mining has not been all bad, leaving us with 10-acre lakes and miles and miles of roads, wagon trails and paths in a huge forest.

The forest has grown up around Valles' hand-dug mines, the Rocky Digs. They now sit in the 240 acre Wildlife Preserve Area #1. Thanks to Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic (636-343-6200, Fenton, MO) allowing us to be a Release Site for rehabilitated wildlife, we have been able to restore the native populations of red foxes, raccoons, ground hogs and possums. This spring around the lakes in Preserve Area #2, flocks of 55 turkeys were spotted and Canada geese and Blue Heron have become regulars. The Preserves are designated No-Hunt zones and open all year. Patrolled regularly, the other 3000 adjoining acres close during deer season.

Valle Mining Company, a Missouri corporation. With former mills and works in Valles Mines, Missouri, the property now serves as a tree farm.

They lived in a log cabin built for them as a wedding present by her father Leonard Billeron who was at the time Mayor of Kaskaskia. This log cabin (14115 Valles Mines School Road) currently houses, some 259 years later and still in use, our "Lost History Museum".
