Date: 09 Sep 2002

I am searching for my Harrison County, MO. family. My NEVILL family arrived in Harrison County around 1850. I am not sure when my BROOKS family arrived. I come down from the James NEVILL/Lilly Ann BROOKS line with my grt-grt grandparents being Lorana "Bea" BROOKS NEVILL and Berry BAKER. I know a bit about the NEVILL/BROOKS lines but can find nothing on the BAKER line. I believe Berry and Lorana met and married here in Harrison County, but the BAKER Family is still hiding and I could really use some help on this one. I do know that there is a family line with the surname BERRY in a few of the neighboring counties and maybe that family connects to my Berry BAKER. My family left for Jewell County, KS. before 1876 and then off to Sweetwater, OK. before 1897 and then they settled in Baca County, Colorado in 1915. I would really appreciate any help. Thank you!
