This death certificate from the Missouri State Archives is one of the documents I located and used in this week's upcoming article for "Casefile Clues."
I think that this woman is the sister of my ancestor Ira Sargent. I'm hoping to connect her to my Ira and her family in an attempt to locate his family. Nothing is straight forward about this family and they apparently move just about every time they see the censustaker coming (or perhaps it was the tax collector they were avoiding!). At any rate, my work on Lucretia and Ira continues and will be featured in upcoming "Casefile Clues" columns.
