I am the great granddaughter of Emily Derosset, who was born in Floyd County. She married Louis Merritt and lived in St. Francis County, Arkansas. She died there in 1898 when my grandmother Margaret was 4 years old. I have recently been researching the Derosset family (now spelled Derossitt by some family members in St. Francis). I had heard about my grandmother's uncles, Frank (F.W.), and James, but did not know anything about my grandmother's Aunt Margaret. Did she move to Arkansas or stay in Kentucky? St. Francis County has a very good website with several links, one of which has a history of St. Francis County printed in 1954 that contains biographies of James, F. W. and Prentice DeRossitt. Also there are excerpts from old copies of St. Francis TImes with mentions of DeRossitts. I had wanted to do some research because I felt sad for my grandmother losing her mother so young, and also because I understood that my grandmother's Uncle Frank and Uncle James had offered to send her to college; unfortunatily, her father obstructed their efforts, but the kindness of their gesture impressed me. I would be glad to share any information I have. Would love to have any information about my great grandmother EMily. I have none, sadly. Thank you so much. Ann WIlliams
