BATEMAN, DICKEY, DICKY, PRICE, SIEFERT, STONEBURNER posted by Jayme Lebshier on Wednesday, April 4, 2001

I am researching my maternal grandfather's family in Christian Co. His name was Rolla Frank BATEMAN. He was born in Towerhill,Christian Co.,IL on 6 Dec. 1894 to George W. BATEMAN and Clarinda PRICE BATEMAN(m.1 Sept., 1881 in Christian Co.)Clarinda's family cabin is located at the Tri-County fairgrounds and apparently the Pana paper ran a large story on the family 4-5 years ago. I do know that Rolla's sister Edna married a Bill SIEFERT who was involved with the Pana Rose business and later they moved to New York. There was also a sister by the name of Lula and may have been more. Some of the related names are as follows: PRICE, DICKEY (DICKY), STONEBURNER I believe that the family has been in the area since it was Dane County.
