and he also had 3 girls.
Now of course, my dad is Willard Litton DeClue Jr. and my brother was Willard Litton DeClue III. My dad was born in June 1926 and my brother was born in June 1950 and died in June of 1981. There is ten of us.
My mother said if you lived in Potosi then you or atleast your relatives would know of my dad's mother's family. The Thurman's. It was here father that was the first Dr. in Potosi and rode to people's homes by horse. And one of here brother's was also a Dr. And her other brother owned the neighborhood drugstore in Potosi that I think she said is still there. She said the Thurmans were well known in Potosi. Well, I hope this helps you. And if you have any other info. for me I would like it. My mother said she got this info. from my grandfather(Willard Declue, and he had got it from someone named Albert Declue from NY. back in 1956. Becky Cohoon who is on this page, had 1 or 2 names that were the same as mine, so maybe we are related. Also, the name used to be DuClos.
