Lee C. Barrow was born between 1855 and 1860 somewhere in the State of Mississippi. He married Mary Ann or "Mollie" A. Dicus in Bosque County 6 July 1879. In the 1880 census of Bosque County Lee, his wife Mary Ann, and their son Thomas C. Barrow were enumerated in the household of his in-laws, Malichi and Elizabeth Dicus. In the 1900 census, Lee Barrow and his family are in their own household in Bosque County. Lee and Mollie appears in several land transactions in the deed books of Bosque County between the late 1880's and the early 1900's. L.C. and M.A. Barrow purchase 125 acres from Malichi Dicus as recorded in deed book 9, pages 142 and 143. L.C. and M.A. Dicus sales off small parcials of property to various buyer over the next several years. On 26 October 1901, L.C. Barrow sells a piece of property containing a drugstore in Eulogy, Texas to Mollie A. Barrow. On 12 July, Mollie A. Barrow, a single female, sells the above property. Lee C. Barrow does not again appear in any records I can fine in Bosque County. It is believed that Lee Barrow left home to return to Mississippi to check on some property and either died or was killed somewhere along the way. No divorce record for Mollie and Lee have been found and it is not believed that they were divorced but rather that he died between 1901 and 1904. No inquest, probate, dowery or estate settlement has been found and no guardianship for his children share of his estate has been located. I would like to determine the exact date and place of Lee Barrows death.
Malichi and Elizabeth (Nunley) Dicus where married in Tennessee and came to Bosque County Texas prior to 1880.
They had three known children: Tennesse Dicus, Mary Ann "Mollie" Dicus, and Malichi Dicus. Tennessee died young. Malichi was born was born 15 Nov. 1866 and died 8 March 1885. He is buried in the Brazos Point Cemetery. I have been unable to establish when and where the senior Malichi and his wife Elizabeth died and were buried. Can anyone help me with this?
