Hello, I'm trying to locate a Prudence (middle name Caroline?) Gaither born ~1840 in Indiana. She married John Ray in 1861 and moved to Nebraska by 1880. Died 11 Jan 1925. Her census records state that her father was born in NC and mother in IN.
I cannot find any records of Prudence before the 1870 census (Halbert, Martin County), but family lore says that she was born either in Lawrence or Tippecanoe county. I see that there are Gaithers in both locations. Does anyone know how Prudence fits into the Gaither family tree? My current theory is that she's a granddaughter of Basil Gaither and Prudence Reeves.
I'd appreciate any help on this one - I've been stuck for quite a while.
