Query: Kirby or Kern Families

Hi. I'm looking for any information on the Kirby or Kern families in Crittenden County, mainly around Tolu. My great-grandfather Robert Ray Kirby was born in Tolu on August 28, 1918 to Oscar (Jim) Kirby and Essie Kern.

He also had two brothers, William David(Cecil) and Elvis D.(Toby) Kirby. Oscar came here to Southern Illinois with his small family under mysterious cicumstances, possibly a murder. I'm uncertain of the time but somewhere inbetween the years of 1920-1935.

Any information be helpful as we have little information to go on. Thank you for your time, Samantha Bruer.
