Thanks for your message. I am very interested in
the info you have. Sarah died in West Mineral Cherokee
Co Kansas according to my great aunt Goldie Scott Slaughter
(who died in 1990). Sarah died 12 days after giving birth
to her fourth child in 1893. Her husband Ben and his 2nd
wife are supposed to be buried at McCune Kansas. According
to Aunt Goldie, a lot of her family, Scotts, Keiths, & Sizemores
are buried at Columbus Kansas. Looking forward to hearing
from you again. My email address is mpoland@oregontrail.net
if you would like to contact that way. Thanks again!

Hi Wanda! I found out some more info on our Filby ancestors and thought I would send it to you. Don't know though if you have it already but here goes:

Absolam Filby b Nov 1738 Suffolk England d abt 1801 SC
m about 1785 Elizabeth ? b abt 1760 d bef 1858 Union SC

Children:
William Filby b abt 1786 Laurens Co SC
Polly Elizabeth Filby b abt 1788 Laurens Co Sc
John Filby b abt 1790 Laurens Co SC d abt 1861 Walker GA
Richard Filby b abt 1792 Laurens Co SC
*James Filby b about 1794 Laurens Co SC
Absolam Filby b abt 1796 Laurens Co SC

John W Filby married Sarah A Lambert 22 Nov 1851 Ripley Co Indiana

(Also found an Elizabeth Lambert who married Jacob Keick 20 Aug 1848 & a Joseph Lambert who married Elizabeth Ekctain 17 Apr 1852 both in Ripley Co. Wonder if they are siblings of Sarah?)

Found more info on Absolam Filby's (1738-1801)parents & grandparents. According to the info I found, Absolam had 2 sisters, Phillis & Mary Mercy. Absolam's grandparents were Samuel Filby & Ann Malden on his father's side and Thomas Death & Elizabeth Mason on his mother's.
