Looking for info on Ida Jane Gano (Benson)

I am looking for a 3 page record that Ida Jane made for the descendants of James H Gano and Rhoda M. Gano. It is referenced in the Lemaster Book, Gano Family U.S.A, on page 269. LeMaster tells us that the title is "For the Benefit of the Children and Grand-Children of James H. and Rhoda M. Gano". Ida wrote it as a record of the family's move from Ohio to Washington State. LeMaster states in the book that a copy is in the Historical Library in Springfield, Il. (The Springfield Historical Library is now part if the Lincoln Presidential Library.) I contacted the library and one of the libraries genealogist was kind enough to looked though LeMaster materials. It could not be found. I am hoping that a copy is still out there with one of my distant cousins.

Also if you have any information on the family of James after they got to Washington State I would love to hear from you. I have a lot of information too. So if you are looking for or wanting to share resources then drop me a line.
