May Celina Darche of Bourbonnais, IL

I am seeking information about May Celina (Darche) Fernekes.

The 1880 U.S. Census has her living in Bourbonnais, IL, with her husband Peter F. Fernekes (48), and her two sons, Irwin (7) and Henry E. (3). May's birth year is given as 1870, but it could be 1867.

May's parents were William and Caroline Darche, both born in the mid-1840s to Canadian parents.

I'm most interested in tracing the German heritage of Peter F. Fernekes.

Also, Henry E. Fernekes later went by Henry J. "Midget" Fernekes, and was a notorious bank robber and murderer.

Any help is appreciated!

Thanks,
TSL
