Attorney to give family talk to historical society

Castle’s ancestors arrived in DeKalb County in 1856 and include a state senator, Illinois Attorney General and first director of the Illinois Department of Commerce. They cover five generations and the earliest of them organized the Sandwich Bank, now with several branches known as Castle Bank.

The program is open to the public and begins at 7 p.m. in the Little Theater at Oak Crest DeKalb Area Retirement Center, 2944 Greenwood Acres Drive in DeKalb.
