i am looking for my husbands great grandfather, john thomas drysdale. john was born may of 1876 in missouri to andrew drysdale and lidia davis. not sure if he was born in ripley county or not, but the family lived there for many years. he marries mae riley in 1898, then my husbands great grandmother ethyle butler in 1903 in ouachita co. ark. They have 3 children then comes back to ripley county but after 1930 we can't find him. i can't find any death notices or anything, have hit a roadblock, if anyone knows anything, please help.
