A quick recovery


Rock N Roll is doing well. The doctor told me that the amount that he recovered in four days can sometimes take up to several weeks. He is continuing his anti-inflammatory medication as well as antibiotics and as much rest as possible.

Another thank you to everyone for your concern and support of Rock N Roll.

Builders of Rogers Park: The Ure Family

John F Ure's son Howard Ure, namesake for Howard Street




Hi Bill,

I received your email address on the web link through a google search and saw the Rogers park in 1,000 words link.

I am hopeful you could tell me more about the History of the Ure family in Rogers Park. I can not seem to find anything on the web that would confirm their contribution to that area.

Ruth Ure was my grandmother and her parents had the Ure dairy farm in Rogers Park. From what I understand from family stories they owned a lot of land in Rogers park from McCormack down to the lake. Howard Street and Howard St beach was named after him.

I found these pictures below from ancestory.com and it shows the Norshore theatre. Is this the same theatre as the Adelphi Theatre?

Can you tell me of any additional information you may have on the Ure family and their contributions to the Rogers Park area?

Thanks
Tim
