Day 2 - Dorothy Gray Allen of Hamilton, IL passed away at the age of 106. Raised along the Mississippi River between Hamilton and Nauvoo, she remembered as a young child, (back before the dam was built), her father, George Gray, finding Indian artifacts in the fields and areas which are now part of the river.
