I’m trying to locate information on my gg-grandparents Worth Field and Dora McLouth I have their parents, siblings names etc. I have managed to find tree’s on Ancestry with some info on them but after verifying a lot of the information I found I was able to confirm that most if it was incorrect.
The date of death shown for Dora Field nee McLouth is 1889 but I have not been able to find any certificate of death for Dora and Worth or even find out where they might be buried.
My reason for posting here is that a very helpful man from Michigan where Dora and Worth were believed to have settled was able to find a land record for Dora and Worth showing them in Charles Mix County, South Dakota Territory the deed was dated 28 Oct 1887 (very hard to read). I’m trying to find out if they died in South Dakota Territory. He searched death records in Allegan county, obits using the date of death I found on the Ancestry trees, he checked probate court records for Fields and McLouth and found nothing. He also didn’t found any obits for Dora or Worth parents which might have mentioned their names.
My g-grandfather their so Lewis William Field(s) was born in 1888 in Allegan County, Michigan according to the declaration dated 29 Aug 1952 that he completed to get a copy of his birth records he confirms that he was born in Michigan. I also applied to the Michigan vital records to see if they have a birth reg. for Alpha and Ivy the other two children of Dora and Worth but there was no record of them.
I am guessing that Dora and Worth both died anywhere from Oct 1887 to 1900. I came to this conclusion because Alpha was shown living with a William and Mary Tidball in 1900 Mount Morris, Genesee, Michigan Cenus (not sure if they are connected to this family). His brother my g-grandfather Lewis W. Fields was living in Chicago with his uncle Joel McLouth so I’m guessing that the children were living with someone else because the parents had died.
There is a death record for an Ivy Field I believe it may be the Ivy I’m looking for I have obits and death info for Alpha Field and a death certificate of Lewis Field the only two people I can’t find record for is Dora and Worth Field. I have found another Worth Field born around the same time but I know he is not the same Worth Field I’m looking for because his death and marriage certificate confirm his parents names which prove he is not the same one.
I searched the Michigan death records and found nothing on either one and even contacted the cemetery where their parents are buried to see if they are buried there but no record of them.
They seem to have disappeared after 1900, if anyone has any suggestions on how I might find info on these two, I would appreciate your help.
