Hi Valorie!

I saw your post from years ago. I am trying to find out if Thomas and Betsy/Betsey McCarty were the parents of my family's ancestor, Lucy D. [McCarty] Palmer. Lucy Palmer, according to her gravestone at Forest Home Cemetery in Mt.Pleasant, Iowa, was born on 7 Aug 1855. She was born in Illinois. She named one of her four sons "Willie" (at least that is how his name was written on a census document). She married Leroy Avalos Palmer and lived in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. She died on 13 Mar 1887, five days after giving birth to my family's ancestor, John McCarty Palmer. On the 1880 federal census it lists her parents' birthplaces as New York. Do you have any information about the ancestors of Thomas and Betsy McCarty? Do you have any information about their daughter, Lucy? Thank you so much for any help you can give us!

Kay
