Ok, I have run into another problem. I am still trying to verify the paper trail from Robert Reece (Reese) to his father Oscar "Fritz" and his father. I orignally though it was James Alexander born 02/29/1843 in TN, died 12/30/1918. However, now I find a death cert. for an Alexander Lancaster with the same dates, father listed as Caleb Lancaster from TN and mother Geoma Golden from TN. I Also found a death cert. for John Lancaster born 08/29/1868, death 11/15/1929, parents Alex Sanford Lancaster from Tn and Talitha Thompson from TN. Could there really have been two Lancaster's that were born and died on the same days.
