Thank you so much for your time and efforts
I am trying to find Dana Wyman Warren's death record or where or how died. He was my 2nd Great Aunts (Dessie Anna Robertson) husband, they divorced abt 1919. He was naughty with another women Clara Graham and Dessie sued Clara $2,000 and won. The family story is that Dana drowned in the flood of St. Louis but there is no proof of this and I am wondering if that wasn't a cover up story or maybe his own story to start a new life. Dana & Dessie had 5 children and she was left to raise the young ones alone.
In 1917 her second youngest son took off with 3 friends from Iowa to St. Paul, MN and they went on a robbery spree that ended with a police officer being killed. He was sentenced to 5 years in Stillwater prison. Then poor Dessie had a granddaughter Ruth Beverly Wood who was born with Down Syndrome and died at age 3 years old.
Then I am also looking for the birthplace of Dessie's grandfather.

Any help at all would be so grateful. I don't think there's a 1850 Kentucky census I have looked everywhere online and maybe someday when I have the means I will have to go to Kentucky and figure this brick wall out. Other family members have also tried and we can not find the place in Kentucky they lived or where born. No records found yet at all from this state. UGH
Thank you ever so much
James William Mulkey born 1740 in Catawba, NC and died 1796 in Wilkes, NC. This is where my husbands Mulkey line ends.
It begins with his great-grandfather George Alfred Ryburn who was born 5 MAy 1864 in Plano, Knox, IL and in Sandwich, IL. His parents were Matthew Neil Ryburn & Charlotte "Lottie" Cornelia Mulkey. This is where our journey began in our research. We have found some lovely photo's and we are always willing to share.
