I'm looking for any kind of information about families that lived in Excelsior during the mid-1800's. I believe my great-great grandfather, Carl Rohning, was a doctor there with a drug store. Anyone have any information?

I cannot travel at this time, so I'm hoping someone can help me.
I am looking for any information on ELIHU PARMER (b. abt. 1797, died abt. 1844 in Morgan County, MO) ; his daughter MARY JANE PARMER (b. abt 1820 in KY), who married SIDNEY ROSE on 17 Dec 1840 in Morgan County, MO. I've found SIDNEY ROSE and MARY JANE PARMER in the 1850 census in Moreau, Morgan Co., MO. Also anything on JOHN WESTLEY ROSE, who was born 17 Sept 1840 in Morgan County, MO.

If anyone in Morgan County is willing to do some searching for me, please email me and let me know what you would charge.

Thank you,
Chris Rose

My gr-gr-gr grandparents were William H. Rains and Amanda Moore orginally from Morgan Co., MO. They moved to Fulton Co., Ark. with his parents Jesse P. and Elizabeth Marriott Rains by 1860. We believe Elizabeth to be the daughter of Elizabeth Suggett Marriott (settled Morgan Co. with some of her children Edgecomb Marriott, III and Prudence Marriott Silvey, plus others) or a daughter of Edgecomb Marriott himself, mother unknown. Amanda Moore Rains was b. 1838 and fits to be the daughter of John Charles and Elizabeth Brooks Rains who had a daughter Amanda b. 183 according to 1850 Morgan Co., MO census. The Moores also had daughter Arena "Rena" Moore who married a Turpin, Josephine Moore who married Christopher Finley, a Delia Moore and several others. My Amanda Moore Rains named a daughter Arennia/Arena but she is on the Fulton Co., Ark. census for 1860 as Irene, and 'Arrenia' on 1870. She also named her youngest daughter Delia A. Rains. As it turns out, I found out that Elizabeth Brooks Moore was the daughter of Elias R. Brooks and Delia A. Douglass of Sumner and Wilson Co., TN. Delia Brooks came to Missouri with her children but she lived in Benton Co., MO with daughter Nancy Brooks and husband James F. Smith on 1860 census and then she shows up living with widowed son-in-law James F. Smith in Greene Co., MO on 1870 census. I believe this to be all the same family and the naming patterns in my family match up identically to this family. Josephine Moore Finley lived in Morgan Co., MO until 1933 and I would like to find out if her descendants have any information that might link the family together.

I am researching Williams and Fisher names in Morgan County. My Great-Great-grandfather was Joseph Williams who married Rachel Larimore in Morgan County. She was the daughter of Richard Larimore and Rachel. My Great-grandfather, Thomas Benton Williams married Martha Ellen Fisher from Callaway County. That makes me wonder if Martha had Fisher or Dawson relatives in Morgan County. It is very difficult to find my Fisher family. Any help would be appreciated.

Bailey/Hindman family said...

I am looking for as much information as I can find about the Bailey's that are buried at Big Rock cemetery. I am told that my Great Grandmother, Laura E. Bailey Hindman was either of Indian decent or her husband Thomas S. Hindman was. My grandmother, Amanda Elizabeth Hindman Johnson (1902 - 1986) said she was Cherokee Indian. She looked to be Indian as well. I was told that no one knows anything about our GG Grandfather William Wesley Bailey(1818 - 1879, also buried at Big Rock cemetery. Please let me know if anyone knows any stories, records or facts about the Bailey/ Hindman's there. TY in advance.
