BERNARD posted by Jim Bernard on Saturday, April 29, 2006

I'm trying to locate death information about James L. BERNARD. He was born about 1839. Our family history says he was sheriff or constable in Richmond, MO., Ray County, and was "killed by a drunk on Christmas Eve" December 24, 1877. I'd like to find a newspaper article, death notice, obituray, etc. to help confirm this information. Thanks!

SMITH posted by Deborah June Frazier on Saturday, April 29, 2006

Velma J. SMITH born 15 Feb 1923; died 26 Apr 1998, Richmond, Ray County, Missouri. Looking for an obituary.

IRELAND posted by Janine on Wednesday, May 17, 2006

I'm looking for an early settler, James IRELAND, who received the land patent. He then went to California during the gold rush/mining rush days but returned to Ray County about 1850 and there died ca. 1853. He did not take his family to California so I am assuming he retained ownership of the land until his death.

CRAIG, RIDGELL posted by Alice Evilsizer Gomez on Tuesday, June 27, 2006

I am trying to establish the exact location of the cemetery where John S. and Catharine RIDGELL CRAIG are buried. Family information lists their place of residence as Grape Grove township at the time of their deaths - for Catharine, we think that was March 16, 1889. I have a picture of the headstone which shows both their names on the one stone, so presumably they are buried in the same grave. Catharine RIDGELL CRAIG is my father's great-great-grandmother. My maternal grandmother's maiden name was RIDGELL, so we know that Catharine is related to her as well, but we haven't yet figured out how. The Ridgell's moved to Ray County from Kentucky prior to or during the Civil War, so it's pretty certain they're related. Any information you can send me would be greatly appreciated. I'm planning a trip to Ray County sometime later this year and would like to see the headstone, visit Grape Grove and Crooked River, where my maternal grandmother's people lived prior to moving to Kansas City.

CROW, TODD posted by Sally Brown Taylor on Thursday, August 3, 2006

George Washington CROW and wife, Lucy Ann TODD, came to Ray County., Missouri from Fleming County., Kentucky before 1850. Their children, Fleming Bruce, William, Fannie and Charles were born in Ray County. Fleming moved on to Douglas County, MO before 1880. What happened to the other siblings? Did Lucy die in Ray County, or did she divorce George? Would love to exchange info on the CROW / TODD family.

Looking for information on Flem CROW who came to Douglas County from Ray County before 1880.

BOLTON, FORD posted by Randy Powell on Monday, September 25, 2006

I am trying to find out where the grave of Martha FORD BOLTON is. She is the sister of Bob FORD the man who killed Jesse James. I know Bob FORD is buried at Sunnyslope Cemetery but donít know if she is there or not. Her son is my great grandfather.
