Query: Looking for information of Elizabeth (Libbie) Armstrong, nee
Baschal.  She was born in Knox county 11/18/1848 and died in Chariton
county, 12/18/1880.  She was married to George Washington Armstrong
(also born Knox county).  They had three children:

William Lester Armstrong - b. 8/29/1875
Addie Blanch Armstrong - b. 12/2/1877
Emma Agnes Armstrong - b. 3/17/1879

George remarried and had additional children but these three do not
appear on any future censuses.  Perhaps, due to extreme youth, went to
live with maternal relatives after mother's death?

Believe Elizabeth is buried in:
 Newcomer Cemetery, Brunswick, Chariton, MO

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I have great old photos of
George that I would be happy to share.

Query: 21 Aug 2008: Am searching for information on Florence Irene Dooley. -I think but not sure that her mother was Catherine Dooley and father Wm? Dooley, sister to Sara Christensen and brother of Jesse Dooley.  Any information would be greatly appreciated. I think Wilma Jean and Marylou were daughters of Sara again not certain.  I remember going to grandmother Dooley’s but that was over 50 years ago I remember a farm setting and perhaps railroad in the distance? Any information in this regard would be helpful in the genealogy that I am collecting for my children, grand and great-grand children.

Query: 24 Aug 2008:  searching for Kathryn (Young) Dooley and Jesse Dooley.  Any available information will be greatly appreciated. My grandmother was the one of three born to this family.  I believe Sara (Christensen) and Jesses Dooley were the only children in this family I am searching for the genealogy of Kathryn and Jesse. I believe she was possibly from England, not sure and I am not sure of Jesse’s heritage perhaps Native American any information would be appreciated I am one of many granddaughters of Florence I (Dooley)Parker-Routh.


Query: 09 Sep 2008:  Jesse Dooley Born Oct 1883, Wife Kathryn Yung Born 1890.

Of this union  to my knowledge was Sarah Marie (D) Christensen Florence Irene (D) Parker Routh.   Jesse Dooley: I am trying to verify his Native American heritage. It is my understanding that Jesse was born somewhere in Kentucky. I am trying to find a birth record for Florence Irene, my maternal grandmother to see if it verifies Jesse lineage, It was recorded as William Dooley Aug 1842 and Sarah McNabb possible of Salisbury? I cannot trace it any further than that. It was suggested from cousins that Jesse was possibly part Native American. Can you tell me how I would be able to research it? I know the old birth records were much more informative than now a day, but adoption would be hard to verify.  

Thank you for the time and consideration.  Marlene.

Query:   I am trying to find Zollie Fitzpatrick + her husbarnd John Mitchell Fitzpatrick who are both buried at the Salisbury City Cemetery.  John Fitzpatrick b. 1839 was the father of John Mitchell Fizpatrick who married Zollie Gooch.  I found a paper in the old Gideon Gooch bible where it gives the name of Zollie Gooch as Stephen Z. Gooch.  (Stephen used her middle name).  Mom said she went to Zollie's funeral at the Baptist Church in Salisbury.  We can not find her or her husband buried in the Salisbury City Cemetery, which Mom is sure they are, as she attened their funerals. 

Wish I could find them , so I would know their death dates.  Thank you. Karen

I want to find cemetery records for James Mitchell who was on the 1850 census with
wife Ona Green. 1860 he was not listed and she was living with her daughter Artamese
Wagner and her husband William Wagner. Listed as Ona Mitchell so we know she was

Query:  I'm looking for help on researching a Morgan, that surely arrived in Charton Co., Missouri around 1817 or earlier.


   Her name was Nancy Morgan, the daughter of Enos Morgan, who also migrated to Chariton Co., Missouri along with the rest of his clan. Nancy Morgan (b:1801)  married a Andrew Potter?? or Joshua Potter??


   Were not sure which Potter she married and gave birth to Nancy Potter (b:1814). Nancy Potter (b:1814) named her first son - James Morgan Wright after her uncle James Morgan. We believe that is a marker that tells us we on the right track.


  Do you have any info on Nancy Morgan Potter (b:1801/2)? I know that Enos Morgan passed in 1835 and is buried in the Morgan Cemetary by Agee School in Chariton Co., Mo.. I assume Nancy Abernathy (Enos's wife) is there. Do you know if any Potters or even Nancy Morgan Potter were buried there?    Thanks in advance .
