Re: William Alexander DeRossett

In Reply to: William Alexander DeRossett by Merlene DeRossett Warren of 356

I'm just back from a flying trip to Carthage, MO for research. Turns out the Loney DeRossett I've been looking for was William Alexander DeRossett, but went by Lon. I got funeral record from funeral home and obit from paper. I notice your note said "twins" -- I'm guessing they are the same guy.

Obit says William Alexander (Lon) DeRossett was born 9 Jan 1875 in Fair Play, Mo and was son of William A DeRossett -- funeral record shows mother's last name Humphrey. Lon died 8 June 1949 in Fayetteville, Ark and is buried in Hackney Cem ne of Carthage.

I also copied obit of Lon's brother Ira who died 8 June 1949 and was apparently buried at Chetopa, KS.

I'm looking for info on Lon -- he married (apparently 2nd wife) Anna Marie Ault Eddington -- 1st cousin to my grandfather.

Any help appreciated. -- Judy in KS
