I have an ancestor married to a Clarance L Whitcher. They had at least 2 children in 1887 and 1888. I then found where she married a man named named M.F. Raner 2-17-1892. I don't find any children or death records. Her name was Jessie E.Gilreath Whitcher. Does she fit into your Raner info in Guthrie County, Iowa?
