Hi,

1920 Pitman, Montgomery, IL
Samuel P. Lacy, b. TN, 44, general farmer
Ora A., wife, b. IL, 38
Liza K., b. IL, 18
Samuel F., b. IL, 16, farm laborer home farm
James j., b. IL, 14
Perry R., b. IL, 12
Ellis E., b. IL, 9
Robert O., b. IL, 7
Harvey J., b. IL, 5
Dolly A., b. IL, 3 8/12ths
Ester, b. IL, 2 5/12ths
Alice, b. IL, 2/12

and then the trail goes cold. I looked for each person in Ancestry and FamilySearch but only found the following.

I'd look for her obituary

You can contact the Jacksonville Area Genealogical & Historical Society, www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ijaghs/resources-in-house.htm and ask if they'll copy her obituary. Hopefully her father's whereabouts will be mentioned in her obit. Successful Searching!
