Rakestraw and Lame Families
Posted by: Laneya Rino (ID *****1054) Date: February 06, 2004 at 08:12:12

I'm looking for information on David C. Rakestraw and Sarah E. Lame. From David C. Rakestraw's pension records, it claims David was born in Ohio around 1829, and I do know that David's family lived and owned land in Tippecanoe County. It lists Sarah's birthdate as 13 August 1850, Attica, Fountain, Indiana. She married David on 26 October 1865 in Champaign Co. Illinois. The pension records also say that David died at Attica in 1873. They have 2 children Mary Ellen born 1869 in Illinois, and Charles Franklin born in 1871 in Indiana, but there is no more specific information that will help me in my research. I would greatly appreciate any help in finding them. Thanks
