Hello Tim,
I hope you are still out there after posting a message here almost 2 years ago.
I am looking for birth place of, siblings of, and parents of Emmaline (Emily) Elkins, b. 15 April 1847, either MO or VA (WVA). She married Henry L. Ricketts 7 Jan 1864 in MO. She died 9 Oct. 1901 in Grundy county, MO.
Do you know anything about my Emily?
Thank you for your time. Barbara Heard
