There could be more children, but these are the only ones I know about. America SIMPSON lived near Roaring River at one time and was probably married to George Simpson about 1875. Can anyone help with this family? Jamie MOONEY was raised by Timpothy Patrick MOONEY and he did not know anything about his mother except her name was America SIMPSON. He was left with the MOONEY family at age 3 or 4. He did know about John SIMPSON and Charlie WILKERSON after he was an old man but did not know anything about his mother and said that he could not ever remember having seen her. On her death bed, his step-mother, told him that she was not his real mother - that his mother was named America SIMPSON - but that she had always loved him as her own. Do any of you have any SIMPSON data for George Simpson who once lived in Barry Co., MO that could shed some light on this mystery? If so - I would appreciate hearing from you.

Bertie L ADDINGTON son of Elihu ADDINGTON and 2nd Eliza BRANSON was born ca 1864-65 in Randolph Co., Ind. He married 28 Sept 1890 in Barry Co., Mo to Carolina LONG, dt of George and Sarah Francis SMITH LONG. Have a lot of ADDINGTON data and will exchange. Would like to know if anyone knows where Bertie L. ADDINGTON is buried. If anyone knows who he married after he was married to Carolina LONG or any of those descendants, I'd love to hear from them. It is possible that he left the Barry Co., Mo area and is buried somewhere -- maybe in Okla.

BELLER, LAKEY, LONG, SMITH posted by Donna Cooper on Monday, December 22, 1997
Hiram LONG and Anna LAKEY married 1 Feb 1814 in IN (lived in Green Co., IN) before moving to Barry Co., Mo. Hiram was born 20 May 1796 in East Tenn. Hiram and Anna (LAKEY) LONG had a son named John LONG born about 1825-6 in Green Co., IN who married Lavinia BELLAH - AKA: BELLER. Hiram and Anna LAKEY LONG are probably buried at Maddy in Barry County. Would like to correspond with someone who might know something about LONG families of that area. John and Lavinia BELLAH LONG's son George LONG was born 10 Dec 1848 in Douglas Co., MO and is buried at Corsicanna Cemetery by his wife Sarah Frances SMITH, dt of Giles/Jiles SMITH. Will exchange with anyone on any of these lines.

LONG, SINGLETON, SMITH posted by Donna Cooper on Monday, December 22, 1997
Giles/Jiles SMITH married Sarah SINGLETON somewhere in Tenn. They lived in Barry Co., MO and had a number of children. Would like to have complete listing of children and to correspond with descendants. If anyone can help with updating list would like to hear. Known children of Giles and Sarah Singleton Smith are:: John A born ca 1840, Henry J. born ca 1842, Carolina born ca 1844, Elizabeth J born ca 1846, Nancy A. born ca 1849, Sarah Francis born 10 Oct 1852 in Tenn married 11 Nov 1869 Barry Co., MO, by Rev John Hudson to George Long, son of John and Lavinia Bellah Long. Sarah Frances Smith Long died 10 Jan 1941 and is buried at Corsicanna Cemetery there in Barry Co., Mo. She is buried there by her husband George Long. Would like to know more about the Smith and Long families. I do know that all known (could be others) children of Giles and Sarah Singleton Smith were born somewhere in Tenn. These are lines that I haven't done much research on, but will exchange anything that I have on SINGLETON, SMITH, and LONG or on connecting families.

Golman Buford HANCOCK was born in Wayne Co., Ky. He first came to the Macon Co., Mo area where in 1859 he married Mary Minerva BURRIS who was from Wm BURRIS family line of Macon Co. and Randolph Co., Mo areas. She too was from a Wayne Co., Ky family but descended from early Missouri pioneer settlers. Her SUMMERS and BAKER grandparents were in Randolph Co., the 1830's or earlier. Rev G.B. HANCOCK and family were in Barry Co., Mo. in the late 1800's where their dt Clara Elizabeth HANCOCK married Jefferson Davis BERRYHILL, son of Michael Weeks and K. Catherine BROYLES BERRYHILL. Rev HANCOCK & wife, Mary Minerva BURRIS HANCOCK are buried at Marrs Hill in Stone Co., Mo. I would like to correspond with anyone who is researching HANCOCK, BURRIS, SUMMERS, BAKER, BERRYHILL & BROYLES with Barry Co., Mo.connections or any of the other county connections mention. I am happy to help any of their descendants find their Barry Co. roots. Have a lot of data I can exchange.
