Looking for information on William D. McCABE b. Ripley Co., Ind in 1847. He and his mother and father (Alexander and Rodah KNAPP McCABE), and a brother Perry Hill McCABE came west after 1860. Perry H. Died in Polk Co., Ore in 1903. I know by old genealogy that William died in N.W. Wa., and he had at least 2 children Ivy Pearl and Ed. Perry was 7 years older than William so he may have died earlier than 1903 or later. Can anyone be of assistance? I realize I have very little info but I am hoping someone will help.Perry left an estate in Ore., so William probably did also. Is there a database online? Thanks for you time.
