If this is true than Lucy died in 1860 or after 1860. Where she is buried is still not known.


Penelope Priest- born- abt 1816 Ky. Died Jan 13, 1871- married John Steers on Feb. 6th, 1829 in Morgan Co Ind. Married 2nd time to Charles Kitchen - 1836 Charles died in 1837- 3- marriage to a (Unknown) Davis

Mary (Polly) Priest- born abt. 1818? Ky.- Died- Aug. 13, 1888- Sigourney Iowa- Burial in the Sigourney County Home cemetery.

William Priest - Born- abt 1825 Ky.- Death date unknown- Married Ruth Ellen Good in 1852 in Sigourney Iowa. (have a copy of marriage Lic ) . His wifes obit listed her in West Cemetery which now is known as Pleasant Grove she was also not listed in that cemetery records.Their son is buried in the same cemetery but, has a stone and there are about 5 plots south of Arthur Preist . They did not have rocrds who was buried there so Ruth and William are probably buried next to their son and also 3 of William and Ruths children. We don't know if the records were lost back then or they just wrote down the ones with headstone. What a shame they could not keep better records.

Tamar O. Priest Born- Apr. 10, 1814 Ky. - Died- Feb. 28, 1855- Sigourney Iowa- Keokuk County- Buried East cemetery, Sigourney, Keokuk County, Iowa. Married Jonathan Landers Sept. 29, 1835 in Morgan Indiana

Susannah Priest- Born- Feb. 12, 1809 Green County Ky- Death- Feb. 1891 Green Township, Iowa. - Married- James Burgess Mc Dowell in 1829

As of July 7 2010 i have not found when Lucy died, still working on it but, wll have to go to a diffrent County because she was living with her daughter Susannah (Priest) McDowell In Iowa County, Iowa. Will up date when i find out. We went to Iowa Co. Iowa and looked at the death records but there was no Lucy Priest on there death records. This does not mean that she didn't die there. They said if they didn't report it they would not have a record of her death. Lucy more than likely died in Iowa Co. Iowa and is probably buried where Jonas Priest is buried. They both may be buried in the East Cemetery in Sigourney where thier two daughter's are buried. We may never find out?

3rd great Grandmother
