Hi,

Robert E. Ray
Born: 1870, Texas
Died: 1903, Colorado City, Mitchell, TX

Wife: Martha Ray
Daughter: Mary Ray

Elizabeth Amy Ray
Born: 1846, Tennessee
Died: Jan 1903 in Santa Lucia, Pecos, TX

Lucretia "Lou" Ray
Born 1848 in Tennessee
Died: Jan 1903 in Santa Lucia, Pecos, TX
Source: Ray - King Family Tree, ancestry.com

I'm sure the story was written up in both county's newspapers.

The Pecos County Library's are listed at http://library.public-libraries.org/county/TX/PecosCounty.html.

The Mitchell County Public Library is in Colorado City but no phone # is provided.

I didn't find their death certificates online but didn't think I would since the deaths occurred before Texas required death certs in 1905.

You can contact each County's Clerk to see if they have records back to 1903. Mitchell County Clerk, www.mitchellcountytexas.us/Officials/Clerk.htm.

You might want to add your email address to your profile so volunteers can send you items directly. Successful Searching!
