My ancestors are buried in the Pleasant Park Cemetery in Carroll County, MO. We are lacking death and burial info on my great-great grandfather's brother Phoecian.

 JONESof Laclede:  22 April 2007:  I have just turned 60 years old, and will be walking from Aurora, Illinois to the Golden Gate Bridge starting this May.  I will be walking through Laclede the first part of June.  Would enjoy meeting people from that area who could inform me of the History. 

My Grandmother was Eva Jones (1879-1976) from Laclede.  She had (3) brothers: J. Paul, Max, and Carl (Carlton?)  Eva Jones was the daughter of May Jones (1865-1911) and Hortense M. (nee Carothers) Jones (1860-1939). Eva married my grandfather John H. Armbruster somewhere between 1905 and 1908.  Karl Jones (1884-1960’s) was the only member of the family that remained in Laclede his entire life.  The parents of  May Jones were: Carlton (1817-1899) and Nancy (nee Gaines) Jones (1825-1864).

 They had a farm called "The Oaks".  Is there a Historical Society that would have information?

I hope that I can visit with some people that might remember any of the Jones clan and am particularly interested in finding the family farm which I believe is north of Laclede and was known as "The Oaks" Jim Armbruster  JKA@atmiprecast.com

She was enumerated with her father, Cyrus M Robinson on the 1900 Linn County, Benton Twp. Census. Also enumerated in the household were two siblings. I believe she first married Andrew J Hassler, also enumerated in Linn Co, Benton twsp in 1900. She did have at least one child, Bernard Dana, born in 1905. Stella second married Charles E Williams September 2, 1908 in Wyandotte County Ks and they had one daughter, Opal born July 1909 in KCMO. Stella died August 25, 1911 in KCMO and according to the KCMO obit and her death certificate, she was buried at Browning, MO. Stella's Death Certificate indicates her father was Cyrus M. Robinson and mother Elizabeth Miles.

I have noted a 'Sarah E Robinson' 1861-1895 buried in the Hoover Cemetery not far from Browning ( Sullivan County) I am trying to determine 3 things:

1) Was Sarah E Robinson's maiden name 'Elizabeth Miles'?

2) Is Stella May (nee Robinson) Williams buried in Hoover Cemetery? and

3) Is there an obit or some other source of information that I can determine the name of Stella and Andrew Hassler's other child. The KCMO obit shows the name of her first child as 'ijin', which appears to be a misspelling.

Any help will be appreciated! Contact Linda at basketshow@sbcglobal.net.

SUMMERS, Greenberry: 31 December 2006: “am looking for information on Greenberry Summers in the Enterprise Township.  I found the following information on the Internet and would like to know more about Mr. Summers, who we believe is a distant relative.   

A Directory of Towns, Villages, and Hamlets  Past and Present  of Linn Co., Missouri

ENTERPRISE TOWNSHIP This township can be considered the baby of Linn County. It was next to the last organized. It was made out  of Benton and a portion of Baker Townships. No general rule was observed, and it not only lies in two sections, but even divides sections. It was organized August 20, 1860, and enlarged February 20, 1870. For a wonder the township line dividing Sections 59 and 60 is its southern boundary (evidently Townships 59 and 60 is meant), but to compensate this unheard of good sense, its western boundary divides the section from its south to north line. Sections 10 15, 22, 27 and 34 are divided, one half being in Benton Township and the other half in Enterprise. North is Sullivan County, south is Grantsville Township, and this last township was the last organized, though there was really no use for either.

Enterprise Township was settled about the same time that other portions of the north part of the county were settled, which was in 1838, 1839, and 1840. Among the first pioneers who made their homes was Greenberry Summers, who came from Indiana in October, 1839, and settled on Section 24, Township 60, Range 20.  Thank you for any help you can give me.  Joy Nelson  joysone@comcast.net
