Editor’s Note: In February, 2002, Charley, June, Alice, Rob and Daisy Bowe journeyed south of Chicago to seek out and visit the Lecour roots of Charley and Rob’s grandmother, my Aunt Julia Lecour Bowe. Their Lecour cousin, Gloria Yates came along also and was able to provide expert guidance to the Lecour family relationships. My son Patrick and I were happy to tag along and I was particularly glad to have the chance to see the home Julia Lecour Bowe grew up in, 745 Chicago Avenue, in Kankakee.
