LT library aid presents 33 years of research on family of La Grange settlers
LA GRANGE – Brian Bardy traveled to Springfield on Sept. 26 to share a research paper on the 19th century relationship of Chief Shabbona of the Potawatomi tribe and the Vial family of Lyons Township, who were among the first settlers in the La Grange area.
Bardy’s paper, which he presented at the 15th annual Illinois History Symposium sponsored by the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, is the culmination of 33 years of research on the Vial family.
The former college professor and current librarian’s assistant at Lyons Township High School answered a few questions about his project.
