I am looking for information on my great, great, great grandfather
Rueben Windham (c.1815) and his family who lived in Dent County from
it's inception until around 1930. I have Federal Census info on this
family from 1850 through 1930. They lived in Franklin Township (1850 -
1900), and Sinking Township (1900 -1930). I am looking for ANY local
records that may have survived. Here are the details of the family:
Rueben Windham (b.1815) born in Tennessee, probably the son of William
Rueben Windham (b1764) from Warren and Hawkins Co. Tennessee. Moved to
Franklin, Dent County (then known as Shannon, District 93) probably in
the 1840's. Married Catherine Beard (c.1826) from Kentucky. He is
listed as a farmer in all of the federal census. He died after 1880.
Catherine Beard (b.1826) born in Kentucky, she probably died after
1870. I have no data on her parents. She had 7 children with Rueben
Children of Reueben Windham and Catherine Beard (all born in Dent
Elizabeth S. Windham (b. 1845) Have not been able to find any data on
her past 1860. She probably either married or died. The "S" is probably
John Calvin Windham (1846 - 1925) My great, great grandfather. I have a
lot of data on him after he took the Oregon Trail to Nebraska, and then
to Oregon in the 1880's. Family lore has him as a Confederate soldier,
but I have not been able to prove that.
William Windham (b.1848) No data past 1860.
The remaining four children remained in Dent County (or surrounding
area) until their deaths. I have been able to find death certificates
for Thomas W, and Nancy J. on the Missouri Digital Heritage site.
Thomas W. Windham (1850 - 1927) Remained in Dent County. Never married.
I have his Death Certificate. The "W" is probably for William.
George W. Windham (b.1852) Lived in Dent and Reynold Counties. Married
Nancy Jane Smith (1847 - 1925). They had three children together. Sarah
(b.1847), Budd (b.1879) and Justin (b.1886). I have Nancy Jane's death
certificate, but cannot find George W's. The "W" could be for WIlliam
Nancy J Windham (1843 - 1924) Lived in Dent COunty until her death in
1924. I have her Death Certificate from Digital Heritage. She never
married. The "J" could be for Jane or Julinda.
Amanada J Windham (b.1857) Lived in Dent COunty unril her death after
1930. I cannot find her death cert. She never married. She sometimes
went by the name Mandy. The "J" could be for Jane or Julinda.
Any info you may have would be greatly appreciated.

My boyfriend's great-great grandparents, Tommy and Mary Pearl Young,
owned a farm in Salem but lost it during the Depression. The attached photo is the
My boyfriend's grandmother (Virginia Pearl Young Fuchs) wants to track
down the whereabouts of her grandparents' old farm but she doesn't know
the address or its whereabouts. Has anyone seen this place?
Is it still standing? Is there someone I can speak with who can
help me locate old tax assessor records so that I can find the exact
address? Is there a Margaret Vickery family still living in
Salem? They knew the Young family, but we have lost track of them since
the deaths of Tommy and Pearl Young. I have another photograph
that I can send if that will help.
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. We currently live in Saint Louis. Virginia Fuchs
(granddaughter of Tommy and Pearl Young) is now approximately 77 years
old and is very eager for some more information. If it would
help, I could provide more information regarding the Young family.
