PIERCE was born abt 1822/25 somewhere in KY. He is listed as head of household on the 1870 Census of Barry Co MO. with a second wife Louisa LEE PIERCE. Thomas J.

CARNES posted by Carol Templeton on Tuesday, July 12, 2005  
I am trying to research a Shem Missouri CARNES. He was born in Georgia but is in the Barry Co. census of 1910 at Shoal Creek township, with his wife and 4 sons. I'm trying to take a Missouri connection since that was his middle name. I'm new at this and just starting out. Any suggestions? I can't find them in Any 1880 census anywhere. Any info you could provide would be very much appreciated. Thank you, Carol

WILVER Posted  by Donald Wilver  Wed Jul 20, 2005 


Looking for information about this Mrs. WILVER. Cassville Republican, Barry Co., MO, Weekly Paper, Thursday, June 27, 1895 Killed by a Widow: Aurora, MO, June 26, Mrs. John Hanson, armed himself with an ax and going to the house of Mrs. John WILVER, a widow, assaulted her, striking at her several times, each time the victim narrowly escaping death by dodging. Mrs. Wilver finally reached a revolver and opened fire. The first bullet shattered the ax handle, the next hit Mrs. Hanson upon the upper lip, just to the right of the nose, ranging downward, breaking the jaw in several places and landing in the back of the neck at the base of the skull. The trouble grow out of the idea held by Mrs. Hanson that the widow was trying to alienate the affections of her husband. Mrs. Wilver was placed under arrest, Mrs. Hanson was killed.
