I am trying to get some info on my grandmother Cassie Nalls BAILEY's family and don't know where to start. She died in Hempstead Co., I believe. She is buried in Harmony Cementary. I guess I need a death certificate because I do not know where she was born to get a birth certificate. She was born 1-28-1900 and died 5-8-1941. If may have been Nevada Co. Is there any way you can help me this. Thanks, Kathy Bailey Killebrew,

I am looking for information concerning Ida A HICKEY and H F Hickey. She was born to Rich and Mary (Anders) DOUGAN in the State of Arkansas on 31 March 1892. Known siblings, per an obituary, are Sid Dougan of Prescott, Perry Dougan of Monroe, Louisiana, and Connie Dougan of Tennessee, and also a sister, Berdie COXWELL (sp), of Hacienda Heights, California. Did she have other siblings not mentioned in the obituary? Was she born in Nevada County, possibly Emmet or Prescott? She m. H F Hickey 26 February 1910 in Nevada County, but what city? Their marriage is in Book L on page 180 of Nevada County Marriage Records. Is there more than one Methodist Church in Emmet? Ida's death certificate states she was widowed at the time of her death and wondering who H F Hickey's parents and siblings were? Where was he born? I believe his first name to be Henry. I also have a birthdate, from a gravestone, of 27 August 1886. Were his parents possibly William F. and Hannah E. Hickey, both of whom are buried near him in Snell Cemetery? Thank you to anyone who is able to assist me in my search for my family. Christine S. Hesselman
