Dear Ms. Faith,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We suggest that you contact the Cook County Clerk of Court to request a search for the divorce record of John and Elizabeth Pease. We also suggest that you search by his name in the IIllinois Death Certificates, 1916–1950 , the Social Security Death Index, or the FamilySearch General Search index for information about his death. In addition, the FamilySearch Research wiki for United States Death Records may be helpful.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your family research!
Cara, these suggestions were so helpful! I had already reached out over the weekend to the Cook County Clerk to determine if they can locate a divorce record and what it might cost to have a copy of the record. Awaiting word there. But I hadn't heard of Illinois Death certificate records or how to check that listing. Prior to checking that website, I had only located one John Pease in Illinois before, now i have a list of six to fact check against and look for a winner! So nice to have some real leads to follow, and I sincerely appreciate your help here!
