Karen - thanks for the response. I explored the William H. & Lucy Boothe connection, but the dates do not jive. My ggrandfather, Robert Edward, listed his age as 32 during the 1880 sensus, and married Elender on May 23, 1878. I have the marriage certificate. However, I would be interested in finding out where you obtained info on Charles Alexander, William Ripley and Gilbert Haun. My grandfather, William Ripley died in 1946 in Dallas, TX. Gilbert Haun, a lawyer, was gunned down on a Cincinnatti Court steps. Whereabouts of Charles Alexander is unknown. J.S. Mosby Jr.
