I am looking for information on my great grandmother Mary Maud TUCKER.  She went by Maude, but I believe that Mary may have been her first name and Maud her middle name.  She was born in Hiawatha or Norwich, KS in 1872 or 1873.  I am not sure if Maude was spelled with or with out an "e" on the end.  All I know about her family is that her father and brothers were supposed to be "red hair-ed freckle faced Irishmen."  Any information on her parents, siblings or any other relatives or ancestors, living or dead, would be greatly appreciated. I would be interested in correspondence with any descendants.
Thank you and bless you,
Roberta Newman and Ann (Headlee) Holmes.

I need the date of death of my grandparents Glenn Earl LOYD and Hazel Jane LOYD nee Bearce both of Hiawatha, Kansas.  They farmed outside Hiawatha for many years and both died in nursing homes somewhere in or near Hiawatha, I believe in the last 20 years.   Mother’s mind is going and she doesn’t seem to be able to remember anything.
