Looking for decendants of Francis M. BLACKABY, son of Chatherine SHRADER and Henry BLACKORBY, found on the 1860 and 1870 census of Monroe County,  Missouri.  The above name difference is not in error.  Henry could not

Later Catherine and Henry got a divorce.  Henry remarried and his family went by BLACKORBY.   Francis M's  year of birth is about 1841 in Oldham County, KY.  I have not had access to the 1880 census to know if BLACKABY he is on it or not.    In the in Mt. Zion Cemetery, located 8 miles south of Paris, Missouri, there is a tombstone that has Francis M. BLACKABY b.1833, d. 1892.  With an 8 year variation in the ages, I believe this may be Francis M. BLACKERBY,  who was found on the 1850 census of Randolph County, Mo.  and born about 1843 in Lincoln County, Kentucky.  Would appreciate anyone's help on determining if it is BLACKERBY or BLACKABY buried at Mt.

Thomas William Rodhouse eventually moved to Louisiana, Pike Co., Mo and then to Pleasant Hill, Pike Co., Ill. Other Rodhouse descendants were involved with the University of Missouri. It is also possible that Thomas Jacob Rodhouse may have died in Paris, Monroe Co, Missouri -Mary Ann died in Mexico, MO. Any help appreciated.   Faye Cox, 6415 Orangewood Dr., Rancho Cucamonga, Ca.91701

Where could I obtain a list of the Missouri civil war prisoners who were housed at Jefferson Barricks? My great-grandfather was arrested by North for spying and put in prison. His name was James B. Simpson and he lived in Paris.

Looking for people from Monroe County, I'm trying to find out about my family last name Redding and Turner. My Grandfather's name was Frank Redding and my Grandmother's name was Mable Turner.   I'm interrested in any information anyone might have on my Grandparents.

Thank You, Carla (Redding) Ritchie

I am seeking information about Anderson MARDERS and his wife Emerine BURTON. They were married (we believe) May 12, 1842 in Monroe County, MO. Also information about (we believe) his sister Mabel Marders.  Anderson Marders was in Missouri about 1850 but moved to California.  Any information will be greatly appreciated.
