What a generous offer! Thank you so much.

I would like to have some information on Henry Banker, specifically the dates of his last two marriages. He married Martha E. Smith, daughter of Chester smith, on 10 Sep 1855, Racine, Racine, WI. Martha died in 1866.

Henry remarried about 1866 or 1867 to Mahala Harvey Ketchum. She was the daughter of Solomon Harvey and Sally Taylor. She was last enumerated in 1880. Henry married Lucy/Lucia M. ___ between 1880 & 1900. Other researchers say that Henry died 20 Nov 1908 and he was not found in the 1910 census. In the 1900 census the data shows that Henry was married for 46 years, i.e., 1858. Close to 1855. The data shows that Lucy was marred 32 years, i.e., 1868. She had had 3 childrem all of whom were living. Lucy was born Oct 1842 in PA, both parents born NY.

I did find a Lutie M. Banker, MALE, widowed, b. 1843 PA, both parents born NY in Elkhorn, Ward 3, Walworth CY, WI. I believe this Lutie was a female as the data says she had 3 children, two of whom are living. I have never found this information shown for a male, only for females. I believe I saw womewhere that Lucy Banker died in 1925.

If you can find the information, it would be helpful to have:

1. Date of Henry's marriage to Mahala Harvey Ketchum.
2. Date of Henry's marriage to Lucy/Lucia M.
3. Date of Lucy's first marriage & to whom, abt. 1868, and a copy of her obituary. Also obituaries of any of the others if it is not too much to ask.

I know where they are all buried.

Thank you so much for your assistance. I greatly appreciate it.
