I am related to both of your grandparents. Dollies oldest sister, Daisy, is my great grandmother. I am not surprised that you do not know the circumstances surrounding her death, she was murdered by her son-in-law in a domestic dispute. I have photocopies of the newspaper articles and would gladly send them to you. Eleanora never married, Thelma married John Fitzgerald and Margaret was married to Arthur Johns (the killer) and then to Floyd Billings. I don't know the birth or death dates for any of the girls. Arthur Johns was never convicted of the crime and I don't know what happened to him. Adams father, Benjamin Franlin Rager, and my great,greatgrandfather Amos were half-brothers. I probably have a great deal of information to help you. Let me know what you want, we'll exchange information.
