William Guest born : apx.1834 in Arkansas (parents?,born TN.) Wife : Manerva (?) born: apx.1837 AR. or MS. (parents ?born S.C.) Daughter: Elizabeth ( Dica - Dicie - Dicy ,Elizabeth Guest (Allen) ) On Texas census of 1880 with wife and daughter. On Washington census of 1900 with daughter (Dica) and son in law ( Alvin Allen ). I'm guessing that his wife Manerva had either passed away or divorced William, before the 1900 census. Also guessing that William died in Washington state. The family had some type of ties to California, and he may have died there. Perhaps if someone finds an obituary or death notice on him, it may show his wife's maiden name, to help with my research. (They lived in Grays Harbor Co.in 1900) Thanks, Dave.
