Researching my great grandparents, Dennis THROP and Elizabeth Elvira PROFFIT both of whom I believe had connections in Howard Co. Dennis THROP was born 1818 in Saline County, Missouri and died 08 April 1891 in Near New Prospect Church, Saline County, Missouri. [Parents unknown] He married (1) Emily BOTTS 21 January 1843 in Howard Co, Missouri. She was born 27 May 1818 in Kentucky, and died 18 April 1857. He then married (2) Elizabeth Elvira PROFFIT 17 June 1868 in Saline Co, Missouri. She was born 17 February 1838 in Howard Co, Missouri, and died 12 February 1901 in Ayres, Missouri. Dennis THROP may be related to William, John, Josiah or James THORP (note the spelling difference!) who settled north of the river in Howard Co in the spring of 1810 along with Lieut-Col Benjamin Cooper all from Madison Co, KY. If anyone has data on Dennis THROP or Elizabeth PROFFIT, I really like
to hear from you. I can be reached at Gbabler@aol.com Gary Babler

Sarah Jane BISHOP, (birth name), b. ca. 1833, Ohio, d. Aug. 2, 1874, Howard Co., MO. Sarah Jane was adopted by Thomas A. GRIGSBY and wife, Sarah Ann (WAYLAND) GRIGSBY. When and where? Sarah Jane, age 16, was on the 1850 Howard Co., MO census with the GRIGSBY'S and listed with her birth name of BISHOP. Was she adopted after that? Or could she have been at an age when adopted, she was allowed to keep her birth name? Although, she used the GRIGSBY name when she married Shelton Rice BISWELL on Sept. 16, 1858 in Howard Co., MO. Could she have been a niece of Thomas or his wife, Sarah? The next question is -who were her parents, and what happened to them? Did she have siblings? The GRIGSBY'S moved from Ohio to Howard Co. in 1838. Did Sarah Jane's parents move as well when the Grigsby's did? Or was Sarah Jane already living with the GRIGSBY'S when they left Ohio? It is understood she was adopted in Howard Co. This is a big mystery in our family, and would like to try and solve it. I appreciate any and all response. Thank you. Jean Phillips SydJphil42@aol.om
