Henry SALMON was born in 1832 in Ohio and moved to Daviess County, MO c. 1840. He lived with his mother, Ruanna, and siblings at District #27, Daviess Co. in the 1850 Census. He married Julia BOLIN at Harrison County in 1851. Julia moved to Cravens Twp., Daviess Co. in 1839 with her mother, Martha Gerard Bolin Martin, her step-father, Nathaniel Martin, her brother, Henry Bolin, and her half-siblings. The Martin family moved to Harrison Co. by 1850. Julia Bolin SALMON joined the Methodist church in 1851. In 1860 Henry and Julia lived at Benton Twp., Daviess Co. and in 1870-1880 she was at Butler Twp., Harrison Co. What Methodist congregation might she have belonged to, and how can I get in touch with the records keeper? I wrote First Methodist in Bethany but they did not start until 1896.

BEALS, GIPSON, MULLICAN, MULLIKIN, ROWLAND posted by Leesa Wittenstrom on Wednesday, February 26, 1997

I am seeking information on Robert D. ROWLAND and Didama MULLICAN/MULLIKIN. Both were born in Missouri, and were married in Daviess County, MO 1 May 1862. They had five children, Solomon, Mary, James, Sobisky, and Emma Alice. Didama died about 1873-79 and Robert married Sophronia GIPSON, in 1884, also in Daviess County. I believe they lived in the Coffey area. Their youngest daughter, Emma, married James David BEALS, in Feb., 1889, in Daviess County. They eventually went to Oklahoma. I believe some decendents of the Rowland and Mullican families may have ended up in Kansas. I've also been told there is some Cherokee ancestry but do not know the origin. Please contact me if you know anything about these families. Thanks!
