David and others: I read your posts in the GenWeb Mississippi Co, MO Queries on the Farmer families. I, too, am researching a Farmer family from that general area and was wondering if we could connect to share information that each of us has gathered. The family I am working on appears to have originated in Graves Co, Kentucky and then settled in Scott Co, MO (specifically, Sandywoods Township) between 1853-1860 and then moved to the surrounding areas thereafter. William Farmer (b. @ 1794) married to Nancy (b. @ 1800 VA) at least three sons (possibly more) I. John (b. @ 1820 KY) married to Irena (b. @ 1821 NC) ch: John W. (b. @ 1843/4 KY) and Emily (b @ 1850 KY) II. Henry R. (b @ 1829 KY) married Augusta (b @ 1830/1) ch: Samuel (1847 KY); Thomas (Sep 1848 KY); James L. (1851 KY); Jeremiah (1853 KY); Sarah (1855 KY); Joseph W. (1862 MO) III Samuel J. (1841 KY) IV Possible other brothers William (1819); James (1833); Nathanial (1835) ??? Nancy Farmer appears later in the 1860 MO census (Sandy Woods Township, Scott Co, MO) with her sons, John, Henry and Samuel having moved there in the 1853-1860 time frame. My line descends from Thomas Farmer whose descendants grew up around Charleston, Mississippi Co but were listed in Sandywoods Twp, Scott Co in the 1900 census. Does this family tie into yours? Or do you know where the Graves Co Farmer families originate from? Thanks for your help - I hope to hear from you. Bob Behnen Kirksville, MO

I have been told Wiley Madison FLACK (1833-1862)is buried at Wyatt, MO. However, other information shows he was taken prisoner at the battle of Fort Donelson in Tennessee. He was tken to Camp Morton prison at Indianapolis, IN where he died and was buried. Was he moved from Camp Morton and reinterred at Wyatt? If so, why?

The following are listed in a Mississippi County DeedBook in April 1847 as being "heirs" of John ORDWAY, former sergeant in the Lewis & Clark expedition: Mary TAYLOR, Abigail NORTHENT, Thos. C. FLETCHER & Mary C. FLETCHER, John R. ROBERTS and Mariah ROBERTS of the counties of Scott and Mississippi. ORDWAY lived on a land grant in Twappity Bottoms from 1807 to sometime after the New Madrid Earthquake. His wife, Elizabeth, evidently survived him, applying for lands appropriated for earthquake sufferers. Some say John and Elizabeth had two children, John and Hannah, but I have no source for this. Would like to correspond with persons researching these lines. Thank you very much.

I am looking for information on my gr. grandfather's first wife, Mary Elizabeth Foster, Foster being her married name. I do not know her maiden name. My gr. grandfather's name is James Allen Foster. They were married in the early 1890's and had 3 children before she died in 1894: Richard Elmer Foster (my grandfather)-born in 1892, William Foster- born in 1893, and Beverly-born in 1894 just before Mary died. We know they moved to East Prairie from Clinton, Kentucky, and James and the kids moved to Mill Spring, MO in 1904, after marrying Elsie Dunlap in 1899 in Charleston, MO. I am desperate to know who my real gr. grandma was and where she's buried.
