SURNAMES: USERY and MATTHEWS
I am researching two lead mines that appear on my property on USGS data files whose source is most likely old mining maps from 1850-1900. The names of the mines are the "Matthews Lead Mine" and the "Usury Lead Mine" (sic). The mines (which were probably old pit mines) are located about 1 mile North of Berryman Missouri on either side of the Courtois River in Crawford county. I would like to find any information anyone has on these two mines, such as relatives that might have owned the mines or mined there. The Matthews mine might have also had a mill located nearby.

I'm also very interested in old lead mining pictures from pre-1900.

I have a record of deeds for a portion of the property and am going to the courthouse next week for more research, and will share this information with anyone that relations associated with the mines. Thanks!

SURNAMES: MANWARING and MONTGOMERY
I am searching for information concerning my gg-grandfather, James Richard Manwaring. I believe that he was born in Missouri abt 1830-1840. At the start of the Civil War, he went to Arkansas and enlisted in Company C, 7th (Shaver's) Arkansas Infantry Regiment. He served until 10 Feb 1864 when he deserted. He married either before or after the war and had four children by his first wife (name unknown). All four were born in Missouri with the first two, twin daughters Rosella and Rosia, being born in Cuba, Missouri 18 July 1873.

In 1880 after being widowed, James moved his family to Hutchinson County, South Dakota where he homesteaded a 160 acre farm. As an orphan, it has taken me three years to discover this information. Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

I can not find any parents for either Jacob Kessler or Rebecca Key.
I have found a Valentine Kessler married to Eliza Jane Smith. In the 1860 census Valentine has disapered, but I find a Eliza Jane Adams living to Addison Adams. There are 2 children living with them. Their names are Jacob and John Kessler. There is also a Rebecca Kessler living with Eliz. Palmer and a Valentine Kessler living with John Dunlap. I think it is possible Valentine is the father Jacob Kessler and Eliza Jane Adams is his mother. I also think John, Rebecca, and Valentine are his brothers and sister.

I am researching Jean/John Daniel MALAN, born 24 June 1828 in Italy, came to MO. about 1855, lived in Crawford, MO., died 12 June 1890 and buried in the Shirley Cemetery at Mint Hill Church. I am unable to find info on wife Marguerite MALAN, born ABT 1830 in Italy, came to MO. with husband and son Daniel. I find Marguerite in the 1860 Crawford Twp. census as Margaretha, in the 1880 Crawford Twp. census as Margaret, in the 1900 Crawford Twp. as Mary M., widow, living with son Levi, In Osage Co. Immigrants List (copyright 1995) as Margareth, Land Deed 1869 as Marguerite, and in St. Louis marriages 1868 as Marguerite. I can not find when she died. She is buried next to her husband, but there is no engraved tombstone just rocks marking the grave. If I could find out what funeral homes and newspapers were in operation in the early 1900's I could contact them and see if I could find a death date. Any info I can get I would really appreciate. Thank you in advance.
