I'm doing research on the above couple and I'm hoping to find William R. RAY'S parents.
He was born c 1846 in Kentucky and married Sarah J. BLANKENSHIP in we believe her father, Parrun's home on the 5th of May 1867 by JP Scurlock/Spurlock (not sure) in Missouri.
We have Sarah, William and the Ray/Rey children on the 1870 and 1880 Census's in Missouri.
William seems to disappear after 1900 so I'm now trying to find his death or any information that may help with discovering his parents
Sarah Ray nee Blankenship is in Idaho in 1910.
If anyone could give me an idea of how to track down William R. RAY'S death/burial and perhaps obit. Would be most grateful Kind regards Dianna from Oz
