I am helping a friend research her family. We are stuck at identifying her maternal GGG grandfather. Here is what we know.

Her GG grandmother is Lucinda (Lucy) List, b. abt 1842 in Indiana. Lucinda married James D. Rider, Sr. on 24 May 1860 in Dearborn Co., IN. James had immigrated from England in 1849, with his first wife (Ann unknown) and two sons (Thomas, b. abt 1843 and James D. Jr, b. abt 1854). We believe James Sr. died about 1879 since Lucinda is listed as Lucinda Rider, widow, in the 1880 census, with her mother.

This 1880 census record is a real puzzle. By then, the family had moved to Lexington, McLean Co., Illinois (where they lived for many years). The family includes:

Sarah List, 59, b. KY, parents b. VA, VA
Lucy Rider, 38, daughter, b. IN, parents b. KY, KY
Nancy Pate, 23, daughter, b. KY, parents b. KY, KY
Sallie Barrett, 19, granddaughter, b. IN, parents b. Engl, IN
Nellie Rider, 16, granddaughter, b. KY, parents b. Engl, IN
Shedrick White, 18, grandson, b. KY, parents b. VA, IN
Ralph Busby, 1, grandson, b. IL, parents b. OH, KY
Chlora Barrett 1, great-granddaughter, b. IL, parents b. IL, IN

We know that the Sallie Barrett and Nellie Rider in this record are daughters that Lucinda had while married to James D. Rider. We have no idea who the parents are of Shedrick White or Ralph Busby.

So here are my questions:
1. What is Sarah List's maiden name?
2. Who is Lucinda List Rider's father and who is Nancy Pate's father (we are assuming that Sarah List was married at least twice)
3. Who are Shedrick White's parents
4. Who are Ralph Busby's parents.

We have quite a bit of information about descendants of Lucinda List, Nancy Pate, and Shedrick (Shadrach) White to share.

Does any of this sound familiar to any one?
