Jennie Sitler/Sittler b1July1859 Warren PA d25June1942 Norman Dent Co MO
Buried in Cedar Grove Cemetery Salem Dent Co MO
Married J. Wiley Blackwell
Father:  Jacob Sitler/Sittler born Germany or Holland
Mother: Elizabeth Wisner bWarren PA

I am interested in Jennie Sitler/Sittler Blackwells mother Elizabeth Wisner that lived in Norman Dent MO from the time Jennie was very young so they must have moved there in the early 1860's.  Jennie and her husband were living near my Wisner (showing on census as Wasner) family and I think they may be related.  My gggrandfather Jacob Wisner was born in 1822 in PA.  Jennies death certificate says her mother Elizabeth Wisner was born in Warren PA.

Thank you

Posted: 09 Jul 2009

I am searching for the EXACT location of the "Medlock Cemetery" located on the old Ira Chrisco farm in Rector. It is located on the site of the Old Gladden Valley Baptist Church which has long since disappeared. I was there a few years ago, walked all along the Gladden creek bottom on both sides of the road and into some of the hills on the Ira Chrisco farm and found pretty much nothing. I have a GPS receiver and the topographical map of the area. I would appreciate accurate directions to this cemetery as I will again be in the area in mid-July, 2009 and I will search again as my GGG Grandfather, David Medlock is buried there......

Posted: 09 Jul 2009

I’m looking for the gravesite of two of my direct ancestors who settled in Dent County in the mid 1800s.

George Washington Taff, married to Mary Rebecca (Bennett) Taff. George, a veteran of the War of 1812, died in Dent County on March 26, 1855. Mary died in Dent County October 3, 1854. Both have to be buried in Dent, but I can’t find them in any of the cemeteries listed on line. Anyone recognize the name or happen to have a Taff buried on the property somewhere?
