Chris, Looks like your great grandfather Forrest Demerritt is my grand fathers 1/2 brother. Both had the same Mom Maude Drury. After Ulysses died she married Leburton Goodwin. She went on to have 2 more children Irving and Royce.I saw a really old post from you from 1999 asking about her. If you haven't filled the gaps in yet let me know and I can send you info and have some pictures. It looks like here in this post you did figure out some info
Although Maude did not die in a car accident. She lived til 1964. I was 4 years old when she died. Ulyssess died in 1898. I have some pictures you would love I am sure if you don't have them. Send me email when you see this post.
