Query: I am searching for my gr gr grandmother, Rosaltha Goodpasture Pinnell.
In the 1880 census she was listed at Salt Creek, Chariton County.  She died in
1881.  Her husband, John H (died in 1902) and her little son John F (died in 1874)
are buried in Newcomer.  But I can find no record of her.  She could be buried
without a marker.  Do you know who has the plot map?  Any information would be very helpful.  Thanks

Query: Am seeking information on old cemeteries in and around Brunswick, Mo.
I understand there are some Plunkett family members buried in the old Elliott
Grove Cemetery
. Is that correct?  Would be looking for any of the Plunkett family

but especially Willis Plunkett.

Am especially seeking information on the James William Harriss (or Harris) family
from old Brunswick.  James William Harris (or Harriss) was born 1818 in VA but
died 1881 in MO. He was a livery stable keeper in the Brunswick area. His first
wife was Henriette or Harrietta and he had two children by her:
Richard and Willa (also called Willie). By his second wife, Julia Ann Staples
Harriss, he had the following children: Julia, and Orienne (often misspelled Orion).
Orienne was a school teacher in the Brunswick schools probably right around the
turn of the last century. She went to college at Columbia, MO.
James W. Harris(s) is probably buried in or around Brunswick along with his
wifes. Am looking for any of them. Also for any of the Staples relatives,
especially Nelson Staples. ANY tidbits of information, no matter how small,
gratefully appreciated. Thank you very much.

Query: Searching for the name of husband (? Sears) to Martha (Maggie
Ann) Spence.  She is the daughter of Jesse Spence and Catherine
Cabeen(m:20 Oct 1835). Other siblings should be William F.(b:1840) and
Jesse (b:1842). Martha was born about 1838, we believe her father Jesse
passed on before 1850 and is buried in Chariton.  In 1850 census mother
and three children are found with Samuel Porter Cabeen in Mercer County,
.  Her mother passed on in 1853 and Martha can not be found in

the 1860, 1870, or 1880 censuses. There is a Martha Ann Sears found in
the 1860 census living with a Joseph and Sarah Lingo in Macon County,
but I can not confirm the family name Spence as her maiden name.  Thank You

Query: Census 1870 - Bee Branch Twp. - Chariton Co., MO:
John Whittaker, 52, born in TN - Martha E., 37, born in MO - Martha J.,
17, born in MO - Sarah A., 16, born in MO - Lucretia, 6 mos., born in MO
- Peter Minter, 35, born in MO.
Martha E. is Martha E. Summers, daughter of John Summers & Juliann
Patrick.  Martha was born between 1832 & 1834 according to census.  In
1860, John & Martha are in Macon Co., Russell Twp.  John Whitaker is 45,
born in MO - Martha E., 26 - Martha J., 7 - Sarah A., 5 - Jonathan W., 1
mo. or 7 mo.  The last child apparently died before 1870.  I cannot find
this family in 1880.  On the 1860 census, Martha Summers brother, Joseph
age 18, and sister, Delilah age 13, are living with John & Martha in
Macon Co.  Her other 2 brothers are in another household - George
Summers, 24, born in MO - Martha, 22, born in KY - Missouri, 2, born in
MO - Charles, 22, born in MO - William, 3 or 5, born in MO.  Their
parents, John & Juliann have died.  I believe this George Summers
married to Martha Wilson in June 1857 in Macon Co.  By 1870, their
daughter, Missouri, is living with Alexander Wilson who may be her
grandfather.  Delilah, Martha's sister, married Lewis Huffman in Dec.
1866 in Macon Co., MO. Two of her brothers witness for her to verify her
age which is another clue that her folks have died.  I am looking for
any more information on the Whitaker family such as where they went,
where they may be buried, what about the children.  Who was the William
Summers, age 3 or 5 living with them in 1860?  It appears from the way
the census image is written that William is a son of Charles Summers.
Grateful for any help.
