I am researching the French family, particularly Rube French, my grandfather. Rube was born December 8, 1884 ( I have heard in Perry Co). He died in 1969 in Dyer Co.

I know very little other than bits and pieces. I remember Floyd Camer calling Rube uncle. Fisher is a family name I remember. I know my grandmother, Tidy Warren who married Rube, had a sister Elmira Warren Fisher and they lived in Perry Co.

Rube is listed on the 1900 census living as a boarder or uncle with Emiline Welch. I found a Rube, Leslie, and Brown French in a book, West Tennessee's Forgotten Children. Rube was about the age my grandfather would have been at the time. They went to live with a W H Fisher and were listed as farming. I went to the Perry Co courthouse but these records have burned. My father said that Rube was a hobo and I have heard Rube had several brothers.

On his SSI app Rube listed Jim and Carrie as his parents but my aunt listed Tom and Katherine as his parents on his death certificate.

If anyone can help me it would be greatly appreciated. Any info at all may be of help.
