RAY Family who emigrated from MO to KS to OK
Posted by: Dicksie KNIGHT MAY (ID *****1599) Date: April 21, 2010 at 08:05:34

I am trying to find the parents of Ella Ray, possibly named Mary Ella Ray, born 31 July 1858 at Buchanan, MO. Ella died 28 Feb 1911 in Beloit, Mitchell, KS, but according to obit Millard Filmore and Ella married at Concordia, Cloud, KS. She married Millard Filmore Wilson and they had 5 or 6 children as follows:

Elizabeth "Lizzie" WILSON + Frank BANKS
Fannie Mae WILSON + Warren "Ray" STRAWN
Clara WILSON + Alonzo CONKLIN and Thomas PORTER
Millard F. WILSON, Jr. + Alma

According to Ella's obituary she was born in Buchanan, MO and went to KS in 2870 settling in Cloud County, & married M. F. WILSON. Their first child was born in 1879. She died in 1911 in Mitchell County, KS, and her obit stated her parents, live in Oklahoma and are past 80 years of age, but there were no names on the obit . . . I have looked at census records in MO, KS and OK and have not been able to locate her parents. There is also 2 brothers and 2 sisters living in OK at the time of her death. Ella states on the 1900 census records that father is born in MO and mother in IA and on the 1880 census she states both born in MO.

Am hoping someone can help me find her parents.
