 Judith J. Shafe


Amstead E. MYERS m. Mary Jane HIATT 08 August 1850 in Gasconade Co, MO. I am attempting to research both lines. I have a copy of personal correspondence to Daniel B. MYERS, son of Amstead, from his cousin, E. A. Roberson, dated 04 November 1908 RFD 1, Box 29, Rosebud, MO. In the letter, E.A. is responding to Daniel's letter of inquiry regarding conditions of tombstones in the "graveyard". His cousin assures him that "they are standing good and solid". This leads me to believe that one--Mary Jane--or both of Daniel's parents are buried in the "graveyard". Where? (My mother has heard that Amstead went to Johnson Co, MO, with his young family after his wife died) E.A. mentions an Aunt Margaret who apparently lives close by, two children Pearl and Ollie, probably his, and "Pa and Ma are tolerable well". I am also assuming that E. A. Roberson's mother was a sister to Amstead. In another letter from S.G. Roberson, Collector of Warren County, MO, 01 July, 1903, (bro. or cousin to E. A.) he refers to seeing Daniel last at Uncle Hyram Myers' wedding in Saline Co; and "mother's Aunt 'Add' residing in St. Louis, MO."; signed "Your Cousin, S.G. Roberson" As for the HIATT/HIATTE line, I recently became aware that a Darius M. HIATTE--49, (father of Mary Jane), was listed in the US Census, Gasconade Co, MO; wf. Margareth--52, sons John T.--25 and Samuel--21, daus. Margareth--15 and Sarah--14, along with an Elizabeth--18 (wf. Of Samule G.W. HIATT); Darius M. HIATTE m. Margaret(h) ADAMS. (There are HIATTs who also resided in Franklin Co, MO.) I have a hand written note dated 20 August 1908, Gasconade Co, MO, listing birthdates beginniing with Mary Jane MYERS, Wm. HIATT, .....ending with Sarah HIATT; Crocker, Pulaski Co, MO. This and the two letters previously mentioned were among the personal papers of Daniel B. MYERS b.30 July 1853, Gasconade Co, MO; d. 11 November 1915, Johnson Co, MO, m. 22 November 1877 Susan Jane FICKAS, dau. of Jacob and Elizabeth (ADAMS) FICKAS--my GGG-parents. I also have several letters and notes to Daniel from the Commissioner of Garrard Co, KY Circuit Court regarding settlement of an estate of S. HIATT, of which Darius's heirs were entitled to 1/8, acknowledging that he had 8 children of his own. The correspondence also acknowledged that Mary Jane HIATT was deceased. I am pursuing the court records hoping for more information as 1/2 of the estate had been held up in the Court of Appeals. I'm seeking any information on either of these families. Especially the MYERS's as I haven't a clue when they came to Missouri and from where. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
