Notes for Florence Dehart
Her death certificate records Florence Caskey, age 43 years 5 months 1 day, born 3 Apr 1874 in Ky, died 4 Sep 1917 in Wrigley, North Fork precinct, Morgan Co., Ky, widowed, father Jesse Dehart, mother’s maiden name Mary Susan Caskey, both born in Ky, cause of death typhoid fever, informant Willis Dehart, Wrigley, Ky, burial in Dehart graveyard.
1910 census of Morgan Co., Ky, West Liberty precinct, enumerated 9 May, lists on p. 13A as household 238/250:
Sellars, William, 40; Mary B., wife, 30, married 13 years, no children; Easterling, Florence, 32, servant, divorced, mother of 1 child, 1 living.
Although the age is 4 years off, and the number of children should be 2, this is very likely to be Florence the daughter of Jesse Dehart and Mary Susan Caskey, since the same census year shows two Easterling grandchildren, Emma age 10 and Jesse age 5, living with Jesse and Mary.
