Converting DMS to DD

I'm trying to geocode some points that I have been given for work. All of the points that I was given were in Degrees Minutes Seconds so naturally I had to convert them to decimal degrees so that I could just use the "Add X Y" function. My issue is that when I display the XY it appears that I have converted it wrong. I'm attaching a Picture of the displayed data. All points should fall within the state of IL. If necessary, I can add as portion of the points as well.

I'm looking for suggestions on what I might have done wrong to cause this error.
