Your reply was very interesting.I read in the Arborville,Ne, news of the Yorkpaper that DeForest Pickrel moved to Schuyler,Ne. on l Nov 1901 and ran a photograph gallery, married 13 Nov 1901 to Lottie Boon of Hebron, Ne then moved to Imogene,Ia to open a meat market with his father Howard on 29 Jan 1902. I also had that DeForest was born in Gridley, Ill. not Ia.Do you know who were the parents of T. Howard? I do not have either father or mothers name.However I think the mother may have been Mary also. My info is thatthese werethe brothers Earl PICKRELL,b. ?, d. 11 Apr.1971 T.Howard PICKREL,b.

I have much more names and dates but don't know what you are interested in.What was your mother's name. Was it BABBIT by chance or was that the first wife of Raymond Edward?Do you have the address of Ellery Pickrel in Red Oak, so that I might correspond with them about the ancestors.
