I am searching for info on Isaac and Sarah Ann ALESHIRE. Isaac was born 10/11/1827, but not known where. Sarah was born 10/4/1827, but also not known where. I believe that they died and are buried somewhere in Barton Co., MO. Their eldest son, John Wesley Aleshire, was married to Evoline Tonnyhill ADAMS, and their eldest daughter, Viola May Aleshire married my grandfather, William Henry Jones. I know John Wesley and Evoline Tonnyhill (Adams) Aleshire are buried in the Barton City Cemetery, as are William and Viola. I just need more info on John and Evoline and John's parents, Isaac and Sarah. If you know of anything that connects, please contact me.
I am searching for information on my grandfather - William (Willie) POLSTON who migrated with his family (wife and children) to Stillwater County MT and then returned to MO about 1915. I noted a Willie Polston being listed in Barton County in the Social Security Death Index. He was born in 1881 and died in 1969. Could he be my Willie Polston. In my family a child - named Opal (b 1908) died in 1916. In the SS death index for Barton County there is an Opal POLSTON (1916 - 1993) Can anyone tell me anything about the Barton county POLSTONS? Perhaps they are related to my Mercer County and Montana line. Many Thanks!
