Looking for information about the family of Absolem LUSK and Jane UNDERWOOD, both born in Botetourt, VA, moved to Ray County between 1850 and 1857, had four (or five) children, all born in Ray County: William L., b. 1857; Mary Frances, b. 1860 (m. Reuben Taylor FORTUNE 1881); Emma, b. 1862, Martha Ann, b. 1865, and John, date b. unknown. Absolem apparently died between 1865 and 1870. We believe in 1881 the remaining family (except Mary Frances and perhaps brother John), headed by son William, may have relocated to Colorado. Virginia Burke vyburke@earthlink.net

DAILLY, DILLY posted by Freedeeric Decoster on Thursday, April 30, 1998

My great-grandfather was born in France in 1890 and decided to go to the United States in 1914. My relatives say he was killed in 1920 in a place called Henrietta, in the "South". There are several places named Henrietta and I do not know which "Henrietta" was the place where he died, but it could be the one in Ray County, MO. His first name was Benoit and his surname was DILLY although he may have changed it for DAILLY. I really would like to know exactly where he died and I would like to find his death certificate. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Fréédééric Decoster 18, rue de Lille 59650 Villeneuve d'Ascq, France. Email : Fredfdk@aol.com
