My great-grandfather and g-grandmother lived in Whiting, MO -- Joseph Palmier and Virginia (Moore) Palmier. I do not know if they were married in Missouri or Illinois, but I was told they lived in Whiting, MO and she died in 1899 and is buried in there. He took the 5 girls and moved to Illinois. She may have been buried under the name Palmer, and not Palmier. If anyone has any information on this family, please contact me.

1906 William Paxton and Lulu Barrett married at Charleston.  Both were of Henson. Later they went to New Madrid county and were on the 1910 census there. I'm trying to pull the genealolgy together and need more information.  My mother is the daughter of William's and Lulu's son who was born in 1910 near the end of the year. His name was William C. Paxton and his mother altered his name after his father died. He was then known as Kenneth. You may want to see 1880 census of New Madrid County if you have an interest. I can't seem to pin William down exactly for 1900 census.

I am looking for information about A. PERADOE, who is on page 478, 57th district of Mississippi County, MO, 1850 US census. I found photos of this census on line, and they are very hard to read. A. Peradoe is 30-something years old and born in MO. Can't read the second numeral. I need to know what his wife's name is. Her first initial looks like E. or C., and there are four children in the family named LASWELL. So maybe she was married to a Laswell first? She is 40 years old and born in TN. They have a son named John Peradoe, and I think his age is 6. Can anyone help with this family? Thanks! Email me directly at Azbrenda@aol.com/

Hi neighbors and family! In the 1910 census of Miss. Co. MO my grandfather is shown married to E.F. Bert Unknown. They had been m. approximately one year. There were no children. They lived in dwelling #514. Can anyone shed light on this first wife of James Irvin (Phillips)? Last name? apparently she died before James (although I have no proof). Is she buried in Dogwood?

Hi Mississippi Countians! There's a bunch of our relatives that married into families that lived close-by. Here is one where I'd really like to fill in the pieces: I am doing a Phillips line. J.J. Phillips married Martha Christine Sailors, daughter of John R. Sailors and Elisabeth Hogan. In a Davis Estate I found a mention of an E. A. Hogan, and also J.J. Russell (Elisabeth Hogan's mother's name was Russell). From a census I know that two of the children of Ransom G. Davis and Catherine Unknown are "cousins", and ggrandpa J.J. Phillips became their legal guardian. BUT, i do not know which Davis is related to Phillips line or how. Secondly, since Elisabeh Hogans mothers name was Russell (Elisabeth the wife of John Sailors) it seems likely that the J.J. Russell in the Davi estate is related to Elisabeth's mom--who and where did they come from--are their other Russells in Miss. Co.? And finally, is E.A. Hogan, as also listed in Davis estate, the same as Elisabeth, or related and in what way? Thanks, I know that if your'e not familiar with all these names, it takes some effort to picture the relationships! Sincerely, Tom

For the record, I believe I have found the first wives of both J.J. Phillips and his son James Irvin Phillips. It required some deduction and a reasoned study of some of the research. They are Julia Unknown and Bert E.F?. Unknown. It may not seem like much, but it was wonderful to find what no one in the family knew! I have also found J.J.'s parents! (I think!) They are Matthew and Rhoda Phillips. But the search goes on. Does anyone have information on these individuals? The last names of the wives or where Matthew came from would be welcome indeed.

looking for a SETTLE who married an unknown PHILLIPS--they are probably not from MO (though they may have moved there), but what is known is that their son, James Jesse PHILLIPS--also known as J.J.--moved to Mississippi Co. MO during or before the Civil War. J.J. had a first wife which is unknown and 3 children before he married Martha Sailors. A census says J.J. was b. in TN, but of course his mother could have been from elsewhere. Thanks!

Hi list! Sometime ago my aunt before she died wrote me a letter in which she more or less just mentioned several surnames that she said were relations. One full name was John Wesley Wood. I have found at least one such individual m. to Amelia Gibson. Children are (at least) Lois Adolph b. Sept 4 1888; d. March 4, 1978 Sikeston MO. And one of his children is Kermit Wood (another name Aunt mentioned). And then, there is Maude (Wood) Darnell. So, I feel I have found the right "group" of Wood's. But I dont know the connection to my PHILLIPS line! Please help if you know the Phillips-Wood connection.
