Hester Adelia Redner Lillman who was my great grandmother had a total of 18 children and only 16 of them survived. Of what I have seen all is correct but the number of children. One of the children that Hester had was my grandfather John Adolph Lillman. I am looking to find out for sure if Hester Adelia Redner Lillman was a full blooded native american or not. I do think also that you have my grandfathers wife listed as one of Hester Adelia Redner Lillmans children. I also have to admitt that I do not know if Maryellens last name is spelled correct or not. I would appreciate any information that you could give me. Thank you for your time and all the work you have done so far. I would like to see what information you have on the Redner liniage if possable.

Hi, I stumbled upon your message board. Edward Lillman is my father-in-law. His youngest child, Henry, is my husband. Some of the other siblings you have listed are relatives that I know of.

Dear Lorretta,
There is no correction needed I know exactly who your grandmother Gloria Smith is. I certainly would not mix her up with the original Lillman Family. Your grandmother had two brothers I think they called one ot them Junior. Robert Delano Redner was not an Indian Chief. I was fortunate enough to know him as a child. Your grandfather had 7 sisters Elsie, Amy Elizabeth, Edith, Georgeinna, Hester, Joan & Gloria and 3 brothers George, Walter, and Edward. John was the second youngest son and a good man. If there is any Indian in our family it would be on Grandpa Redner's side and that will be hard to prove. Grandma Lillman as I understand was an only child. I remember when all of your aunts and uncles were born including Lester. Sorry I can't help you to fame and fortune.

To anyone who now comes across this line I once posted under the name Loretta Wiertz. I have since gotten married and my name is now Loretta Robbins. I have been doing more research on our family and am still looking into much. I hope to find more soon. To the person grass12, I am finally after all these years getting the information that you posted was very helpful. Stranger still to find someone whom remembers seeing me as such a young child and that knew both my mother and father. I would love to be able to contact you or touch bases with you should you still be around to find this post. If not anyone who might find this that is connected to you and knows of any of this please contact me. Thank you.
