Hello Curtis, good to hear from you! Unfortunately, I haven't uncovered any new info. I'm at a road block with Ruth. I need to find more death certificates of James and Ruth's children to see if Ruth's maiden name is listed. I got the maiden name "King" from the Wingfield.org genealogy chart and also a database on Ancestry.com called Kentucky Marriages to 1850, yet "Moore" shows on Jacob Vanmeter's death certificate. I cannot find if there were death certificates issued for their children James(d-1905)and Ruthia(D-1901). Possibly an obit can be uncovered. I have no death dates for their other children. Did the Family Bible reveal anything?
Good luck at WKU next month!! Wish I could go with you!
