Searching for information about the James M. and Rose Ann ADAMS nee STAFFORD family who are enumerated in Marion Twp., Harrison County, MO in both 1880 and 1900. They were originally from Morgan County, IN. Rose Ann Stafford was the daughter of Andrew Stafford and Mary Polly Stafford nee LANG who later married William Cox.
Mary and Andrew Stafford had a daughter Elizabeth who was deaf. She was the mother of 3 girls: Emma b. 1866 in IN, Annie b. 1868 in IN, and Ida b. 1875 in IN.
Elizabeth had a half brother named Lafayette COX who was the son of Mary Lang Stafford and William Cox. He was born 23 Oct 1858 in IN and was enumerated in 1880 in Harrison County, MO with his mother and sister. He eventually died in 1915 in Lebanon, Red Willow County, NE.
I would appreciate any help at all with any of these people.

I am looking for information about William H/N ROBINSON and marriage to Lucinda. Listed in 1860 Trail Creek census as William H. ROBERTSON and wife Lucinda. He was born in New York and she was born in Ohio. They were married before 7/11/1860. After his marriage to Lucinda, he was married to Rosella A. Chaney Nelson on 10/1/1865. He was listed in Trail Creek and Fox Creek in 1870 and 1880 census. Any information would be greatly appreciated. William and Lucinda were my great great grandparents.

I am looking for information on William H (or N) ROBINSON, enumerated in Trail Creek Township in 1870 and Fox Creek Township in 1880. A spouse was Rosella NELSON. William and Rosella were married 1 October 1865. Rosella had been married to Edwin NELSON on 1 December 1857, in Iowa. Her maiden name was CHANEY.
However, I think William had a prior spouse named Lucinda, based on these points:
- In the 1870 census there are two ROBINSON children born prior to 1865: Rosetta (1860) and Harrison (1863).
- There is an entry for William H and Lucinda ROBERTSON, at the correct ages, in dwelling 1379, page 198 of the 1860 Federal Census for Trail Creek.
- Finally, there is a headstone at Yankee Ridge Cemetery for Lucinda ROBINSON, d. 10 April 1865, "Wife of W. H. Robinson".
Any information on the marriage of W.H. ROBINSON and Lucinda ?, or the death of Lucinda ROBINSON, or William H ROBINSON, will be greatly appreciated.
