I am looking for any information that is available on Margaret RECTOR. Margaret was the wife of John
William DODSON (I think he was known as William and not John), they were married in Howard
County May 3, 1839. According to the 1850 Howard County census, Margaret was born about 1820.
That record shows they had two boys living with them at the time. I understand they had several
other children but can find no record of them. I am looking for Margaret's parents, her
siblings, her place of birth, her death date, where she is buried, etc. Her husband, John William

I wondered if anyone has any on the JACKSON (first name unknown) who m. Ann LOWRY, who was b.
abt. 1832. Ann LOWRY was my g-g-grandmother. Their dtr., Anna Belle JACKSON, b. 2 Dec 1853, m.
Henry Harrison WAYLAND, b. 2 Sep 1843. Ann LOWRY m. second to a FORT when her husband JACKSON
was killed in the war with Mexico. My father remembers that Annabelle had two brothers named John and
On p. 77 of the 1870 Randolph Co., MO census is found H.T. FORT, age 53, b. TENN; and Ann FORT, age
38; J.T. (probably John) FORT, age 16; Elsie (?) FORT, age 1 (female); Bell JACKSON, age 17 (my
g-grandmother); A. JACKSON, age 12, female. Mr. Fort was a partner in the haystacker manufacturing
plant and the census shows a real estate worth of $12,000, which is substantial for right after the Civil
War. Ann married an rather older man, but men were short after the war and she needed support for
herself and her children.
In the same 1870 Randolph Co. census, p. 61 of the Saltspring Township, in the household of J.C.
SHAFER, along with two persons identified as teachers, are found Bell JACKSON, age 18 female,
and John FORT, age 16, male, and R. (Rebecca) WAYLAND, age 19 female. Obviously, these three were
counted twice in the census as they were away in boarding school. One can guess (and it is fun to
do so) that Rebecca introduced her schoolmate Bell to her brother, Henry, who was a mature civil war veteran,
age 27, and they were married. I don't have anything on the FORT and LOWRY lines either. Any help
appreciated. John Wayland

Lee P. Haley--Mon May 18
I am seeking info on my g.g.g. grandparents, Nicholas STEPHENS and his wife Rebecca TOLSON STEPHENS.
Her parents were John and Rebecca TOLSON of Howard Co. I have the marriage record of Nicholas and
Rebecca (Nov 6, 1844), his probate information (d. Jul 12, 1849)and some census records. However, I
cannot find anything about his parents. He was born Jan. 19, 1809; died at age 40. Nicholas and
Rebecca were married by Rev.Thomas Payton STEPHENS in 1844 in Howard Co. but I cannot confirm
that Thomas was the father. Thomas had a connection with Old Cedar Creek Church in MO. The
administrator to BOTH Nicholas and Thomas P. STEPHENS' wills was William E. STEPHENS; who is he?
Thomas died Apr 2, 1865. They both died in Callaway Co. MO. Have read lots about Thomas but never a
reference to Nicholas. Our family has always been told that we had some connection with Stephens
College in MO. I think Thomas was related to the founder of the college through his brother, Elijah
(of Boone Co,MO). I wrote to the college and received some info but nothing refers to Nicholas. Nicholas
is buried in Old Brick Providence Cemetary in Callaway Co; Thomas P. is buried in Stephens
private cemetary in Callaway Co. Any help in putting the puzzle pieces together would be appreciated.

My grandfather, Samuel Price ANDERSON was born in Howard, Co. MO., May 15, 1861. His mother
was Almira (Myra) EDWARDS who had moved to MO from IL. I am trying to find information on
Samuel's father. The only clue I have comes from Samuel's death certificate which gives his father's name
as Doak ANDERSON. I question this information as I have been unable to find any information
on a Doak ANDERSON. There was a Josiah ANDERSON, from VA, who lived next door to the
family Myra Edwards lived with so I feel there must be a connection. Samuel had an older
half-brother, Charlie W. ANDERSON, born in 1859; and a younger sister, Sarah ANDERSON, born
1863. She married Wm or Ben Lowe. Myra Edwards Anderson later married a Clark NOBLES in the
home of Jesse EDWARDS, and they had a daughter, Rose born in 1869. On Oct. 10, 1889, in
Salisbury, MO Samuel ANDERSON married Nellie Dye WALKER, daughter of Greenberry and
Elizabeth Beard WALKER who had moved to Charition Co., from Hardin CO, KY. I would appreciate
any information you might have on these families.

STACY/STACEY - Looking for any information on John Wesley STACY/STACEY. Born abt.
1856/57 somewhere in Missouri...very possible Howard County. I understand there
were a few STACY/STACEY families here. I do not know his parents' names; I do know they
too were born in Missouri. it is believed by some members of my family that there was a large
STACY/STACEY farm where they lived. John married in 1891/92 a 15 year old Texas girl, EMMA
(possible name: Frances Emmeline THOMPSON). In 1892/93, the couple had a daughter in
Missouri; her name was Lee. By 9/23/1896, the family was in Waco, Texas; this is where my
grandfather, William Wesley, was born. If anyone has any information pertaining to this family,
please contact me at my e-mail address: KYLPTTY44@aol.com. Thank y'all very much for any help you can

Researching my family line of DRAKEs. Judge David Rose DRAKE came from Bullitt Co, Ky and eventually
settled in Clinton Co., Mo. First, however, they stayed in New Franklin, Howard Co., Mo long enough for
their daughter Harriet Columbus DRAKE to be born in 1829. I'm just trying to get the documentation instead
of solely relying on family tradition. Families that might have come with him and perhaps stayed in that area are
the BURCKHARDTs and perhaps the ROSEs.

My gggrandfather was Washington A. REED, born in Kentucky, and married
Paulina TOLSON in Howard County, Missouri, 17 Mar 1849. He, his wife
and daughter Sarah appeared in the 1850 Howard County, MO census. Their
daughter Anne M. (my ggrandmother) was born in Kentucky 22 May 1853. I
can find them nowhere in any 1860 census but there was a son,
Washington, Jr. born in 1864 in Missouri. Paulina appears in the 1870
census as head of household and she remarried Daniel GILVIN in 1875.
I cannot find what happened to Washington A. REED. I thought perhaps he
was killed in the Civil War but I haven't gotten very far in that
direction, a few leads but no pay dirt. I did find a W.A. REED buried
in the Confederate Cemetery at Alton, IL but after a month of searching I
found him to have been William A. REED. Of course he may have died,
been murdered or just disappeared. Who knows? I am also looking for
the ancestry of Washington A. REED and Paulina TOLSON. Thanks a bunch!
