Luther and Lucy have been married 25 yrs (1875)

This might be him and might not.

Arguments for,
"Lock Ray" is a very rare name
He has a brother William E, 8 years older than him.
All the birthplaces match
County is right

Arguments against
"Ward" is a common surname
His age is off by 5 years from his WWI draft card
His birth month doesn't match the draft card

If you can find an obituary, the list of survived by and preceeded in death by might help decide.

Note 1, I'm not related. I do genealogy the way normal people do crossword puzzles.

Note 2, it is a bad idea to post your e-mail address n a quesry board post.
a) Robots employed by the spam companies can harvest it, then send you offers for Rolex replicas, viagra, and millions of dollars kept in a box in Nigeria.
b) Another WARD researcher can't see what I found.
c) If your ISP changes, you have to post a followup to every post you made.
