My cousins and I are looking for the family of our great grandfather,

according to family lore, Charles Bailey TATUM fought for the Union during
the Civil War (which created havoc when he came to Texas and married my
great grandmother who was the daughter of a Confederate!!). We have
located a Charles TATUM as the son of John and Nancy TATUM in the Howard
County 1850 Census. He also shows up in the 1860 Census but not the 1870
Census, although it appears that John TATUM is in all three. We have not

anyone have any type of records with any information that might help us?

County,Texas Census records. I have not had access to the 1870 census for

I am attempting to trace my branch of the BALLEW clan. I have gotten to my
Great Great Grandfather, Hiram BALLEW, who died in 1820 and is buried,
with his wife, Dorcas in Richland Cemetery in Howard County, Missouri. Any
record of BALLEWs of this particular branch prior to Hiram? Thank you for
anything you can find.

I am seeking information concerning any REED or REID families that lived
in Howard County, Missouri during the 1800s. I am related to Hiram and
William REED who arrived in Howard County about 1820 from Kentucky. Other
members of the extended family may have come from Tennessee. Any and all
REED inquiries are welcome.
