In Response To: John L. Innis (Kathy Innis Topp)

What is the source of the information you have? This sounds like a word of mouth family tradition. What was the fate of Lizzie? She also left few traces unless she remarried quickly and John was adopted by the new husband. It is possible John, Jr. waited until the death of this postulated second husband to change his name back to Innis. Son John went to Arkansas based on census(1910-1920) from Familysearch. It is odd that they donít appear on the 1880 or 1900 census. Several other possibilities exist. They were coincidentally on the move as Itinerant laborers on railroads or farms, out of the country or moving during the summer when census was taken.

I am not related -just a volunteer.

Sources of death information:
Preparation could include study of available newspapers as to where people might have been going for work out of county or out of state
Probate court records index and records on microfilm. It is possible that no probate was needed if no property was owned.
Court records Coronerís inquest in county where he died. This may be mentioned in a newspaper article as well.
Other newspaper articles could included news of his death
