My Wisner/Weisner family moved from KY to Spring Creek MO in 1870. Jacob Wisner fought in the Civil War so I suppose he homesteaded land in Spring Creek. The 1870 Dent census shows Jacob and family.

My ggrandmother Kessiah Weisner married Aaron Davis in Dent MO in 1876.
I know my ggrandfather died at the Old Soldiers Home in Leavenworth Kansas and is buried there. I sure would like to find where my ggrandmother Armenia is buried.
Jacobs daughter Mary married John Davis in Dent County. John was the son of Aaron Davis and his first wife Elizabeth Wilhite. Elizabeth died in Barry Co Mo in 1876.
