Query: Dexter J. Lacy was the son of
John Claude LACY(called "Jack") b. Buffalo, Wilson County, Kansas; married possibly three times to: (1) Claire Alberta DEXTER, (2) Helen (?), (3) Connie ?; lived in Kansas,
in Hot springs, AR, and in Little Rock, AR. d. 1969. Sold insurance and then sold advertising for the Arkansas Democrat. He was the son of Alvies (or Alvis) Coder LACY (b. 1857) and Lovey Ann MILLIRON(b. Holmes
County, OK, then Indian Territory, about 1863). They were married on 12/4/1881 in Buffalo, Kansas. They both died there-- he in 1932, she in 1959. They were cattle ranchers.

Alvies was the son of Robert C. LACY b. about 1822, who came to Buffalo, Kansas before 1873 from the area around Roodhouse, Greene County,Illinois. He was unable to write (maybe illiterate, maybe he was
disabled by a stroke or something when he couldn't sign the bill of sale.) Alvies' mother's maiden name was Esther Ann BRYANT and she was born somewhere about 1818.

Lovey Ann MILLIRON LACY (Mrs. Alvies C. Lacy) was the daughter of Mr.
Milliron (know nothing about him) and Katherine MOODY. At some time in
her life, Katherine Moody Milliron moved to Buffalo, Kansas where she died. my mom has a picture of her on her 98th birthday in her home in Buffalo, Wilson County.

Any additional info would be appreciated on any of these people or their relatives!

Query: John WILSON m Lucy Elizabeth TOUSLEY 23 Apr 1878 in Noble Co IN. Lucy
was b 1 Mar 1854 in Noble Co IN d 30 Mar 1938 in Shelby OH but bur in
Sterling KS, supposedly with husband John - I have her obit.

They had at least 4 children: Blanche b 1879 & m Ellsworth FERRIS of
Shelby OH, Emma, Clyde, and Charles W.

Lucy grew up near Swan IN and in 1887 she & John moved to Neodosha,
In 1902 she/they moved to Sterling and lived on a farm of Dr W.E.
CURRIE in the South Ashland District. In 1911 she moved to CO (I
don't know if John was dead yet) and then she lived in Mt Grove MO
from 1920-1936 at which time she moved in with daug Blanche FERRIS in
Shelby OH where she died. The body was shipped back to Sterling KS
for burial.

I'm not sure if John is buried in Sterling (prob), Neodosha (poss), or
Colorado (questionable). I have no idea about their children.

Do any of you know these folks? John may be my ggguncle and Lucy is
the sister of my gggrandmother - the two families married brothers and
sisters.
