Guidelines for Requesting a Lookup


I have a set of papers thatg were submitted from the KC Central High School Biology class to the 1904 St. Louis Worlds Fair all submission were hand written and signed by the student submitting. Most have 8 to 20 pages. 2 to 4 pages of each students are illustrations drawn by the student, they have signed each page illustrated. Since there are only a few names associated with Central High, I will list them. They are:
W. Houser Sloan, 17
Zola Sweet, 16
Francis Abernathy, 15
Lucy M. Reynolds, 15
Mae Francis Cheek, 16

I am asking $25.00 for the papers of each child. There is also a copy of the teachers instructions she also signed her name, Mary J. Steel. Please e-mail me if you are interested: tvpar@mail.tigernet.gen.mo.us (Thomas Parker). Thanks.

The Political Graveyard 
This lists cemeteries in Jackson County. Has links to other counties.



I wanted to let you folks know that I have several things that I have on hand that I will do lookups in and look in my infomation to see if there is anything anyone might need. First, I have a book called "German Settlement in Missouri, New Land, Old Ways". I will attempt to list just the people that are listed in the index. I also have a book called "Orphan Trains to Missouri". I will also just list the names in the book from the index and If you find anything that might pertain to who you are looking for, please feel free to e-mail me, Terry, and I will help you as best I can.

I wanted to let folks know and the ones who haven't looked around my web site that I have my research almost all indexed. I can do lookups for anything I have listed on my Counties Information Pages.

Online Research

If you find a census record, marriage record, or anything else that is either listed or indexed that you want me to do a lookup for, I will be more than happy to do so. Please allow a couple of days for me to get them done. If you have sent a request and have not yet received a response, feel free to e-mail me a reminder .



My family was some of the first settlers in Jackson county, coming here about 1834. My gggggrandfather owned a large farm in eastern Jackson county. I have a few books on Jackson county, and I also have indexed Lobb Cemetery and have some basic histories on families buried there. Alot of the early pioneers that lived in Eastern Jackson county were buried there. There are some confederates buried there, and also a couple of men that were Quantrill's gang. I'll gladly share anything you might need, or do lookups for individuals that are buried in Lobb. Most of these early pioneers were from KY. Since I live here in Jackson county, I will help when I can. I live in the Fort Osage Township, and there are alot of old cemeteries out here. Lisa Rainwater, NRAINH20@aol.com.



Someone recently bought at auction one of those "miscellaneous" boxes of who-knows-what. In the box are lots of photos and papers of an ANNE LOUISE WERNINGER who married a BLAND (we think his name was Ralph). Included is a book titled "My Graduation" which is full of memorabilia for "Louise" and it says "Louise Werninger, Senior, 1929". She was a student at Bethany High School.
The Blands apparently moved to Kansas City because there are war ration booklets for "Anna, Ralph, Larry B. Bland" and the address says 8217 Locust, Kansas City, MO.
They must have moved to Kansas later because a penciled note on the back of a photo says, "Ralph Bland at Salinda 'Sun' 1946-1949."
Also included is the original Civil war discharge paper for a Jackson VAIL, dated 12 June 1865 and a pension certificate for him dated 2 July 1913. He must have been some relative (ancestor) of the Werningers or the Blands.
We would be happy to find a descendant of these families who would want this material. To see the materials or get ahold of the gentlemen that has these please see https://sites.rootsweb.com/~iapottaw/ or e-mail Bob Anderson at banders@nfinity.com.



I have names of names and ancestors who married into the WARDRIP/WARDROP/WALDROP family with birth dates from the late 1700's to late 1800's. They were born, lived, or died in any of the following states: AL, AR, GA, IA, IL, IN, KS, KY, MO, MS, NC, NE, OK, SC, SD, TN, TX. My info on them ranges everywhere from just a little to alot. What I have has not been documented by me and many contain errors. If you can correct an error, pleae help me update this file. Please e-mail me directly if you have questions.
