NEED INFORMATION ON Aaron Span(n)and family. Would like to know the other names of his children and their descents if possible. Here is what I know at present. 1816 Aaron Span came to the lower Niaungra basin (area now part of Leclede, Wright, Dallas and Webster counties)to mine Salt petre for the Military for the indian wars that had erupted after the Osage rejected the 1808 treaty, and these wars lasted until 1829 when the Indians were defeated. Aaron Span came with several others, all were related by blood and/or marriage: Jesse Beulieu (also spelled Blue, Ballew, Bellew etc), Henry Cook Andersson (married to one of Jesse's daughters) William Montgomery and some of his brothers (William married Jesse Ballew's daughter Nancy), John Cullen (who married a daughter of John Taggart or Tygert), John Taggart and his son Josiah (Josiah married one of Aaron's daughters named Nancy), John Campbell (married to a sister of Joseph & Daniel Miller), Joseph Miller(who settled in Kickapoo prairie and then to the little sac river) Daniel Miller brother to Joseph that died at Kickapoo married into the Anderson Family, Thompson (married Jesse's daughter that was widowed of Henry Cook Anderson) Jones (married into the Ballew family), Gilseby, William Jordan (sibling to Pharaby Aaron's wife and married to Aaron's sister Fannie Span), John Span (brother to Aaron and married into the Jesse Ballew family) and others about 20 heads of ho! usehold in all. Later a brother to Joseph and Daniel would come to Dallas Co and live near Aaron, and this brother's (George Washington Miller) two children would marry two of Aaron's children......John Miller to Elizabeth Span (Spohn) 1 Sep 1841 Niangua Co this is recorded in Benton Co in their marriage regester as a delayed recording when John died 1862 in the home guards) and Carolyn Miller who married William Jordan Span. George is buried in the Timber Ridge Cemetery established as Union Cemetery in 1842 in Webster Co, Mo Aaron SPAN (N) was married in Warren Co, KY in 2 Dec 1809 to Pharaby Jordan and with them came their living children: Nancy born Aug 1810 in Warren Co, KY, a child born 1812 in Shelby Co, Illinois while Aaron was in the War of 1812, a child born 1814, Benjamin Franklin Span born 1815. Joseph M. Span was born here 1817 in the lower Niangua River Basin when it was under I believe Washington Co, Mo (1813 to 1818) In 1818 when this area was then the annexed lands (of -old-Pulaski Co.) Franklin and Pulaski were created the same day 1818 and Pulaski was to house all the Indian lands in dispute. Pulaski had no government so it was annexed to Franklin. Pulaski at this time housed all the lands that extended below the Missouri river all the way to the lower boarder of what is now Arkansas. Pulaski had no government and Franklin did so 1819, Franklin signed for Pulaski to be split and 1/2 went to what would later become Missouri State and 1/2 went to what later became Arkansas. Then in Franklin 1819 signed for (the Missouri) Pulaski to be divided and annexed to Cooper Co, and Wayne Co. So from 1818 to 1820 the lower Niangua river Basin (old Pulaski) was annexed to Wayne. Then in 1820 Gasconade was created and all of the (OLD) Pulaski Co still governmentless was annexed to Gasconade. In 1829 the indians lost their wars and then (old) Pulaski was deposed and ceded to Gasconade. Th! is same year Gasconade carved out Crawford and included in it were the -old- Pulaski (and the lower Niangua River Basin lands.) During this time: Joseph M. Span was born 1817 - was this birth if regestered in Washington? William Jordan Span born 1819 was this regestered in Wayne? 1820 Thomas Span was born was this regestered in either Wayne or Gasconade? 1822 a child that died, 1824 Elizabeth Span was born. 1825 Rufus Span was born, 1827 Isreal Span was born in (Old Pulaski annexed to Gasconade) and I found Isreal Span's birth statistic in Gasconade. 1829 Pharaby, Aaron's wife, died in child birth. The child lived as it is a "Number" on the 1830 census but Pharaby died. Is this in Crawford? I found that Aaron was a justice of the Peace in Gasconade Co as he had married several persons during 1820 to 1829. 1831 to 1833 Aaron remarried to Anne ___ a woman much younger than he. By 1833 he divorced her in Crawford Co for adultry, this was the first divorce granted in Crawford. 1833 Crawford carved off Greene and (new) Pulaski Counties . Aaron was then in Pulaski as he was appointed the first Coroner. but was defeated in the next election 1834. And then in 1834 Greene and (New) Pulaski carved off the lands of the whole of the Niangua River Basin to become WYATT TERRITORY. Wyatt was stopped from becoming a county when the NORTORIOUS BANK OF NIANGUA was exposed for conterfieting money. About 30 were indited but only three were brought to trial. From 1835 to 1837 the State of Missouri was in a quandry about what to do over WYATT TERRITORY. The first step was to seize the lands under marshal law. Then it was ceded to Greene, and a commotion arose that this action by Missouri was illegal, so Greene hastily carved Polk and ceded these WYATT lands to Polk, By 1837 the situation was resolved and old Wyatt was deposed legally, In the mean while Polk had treated it like her own lands and assigned Townships to her. Polk maintained these lands as 1st land division and 2nd land division, (for some reason unexplained there were still two divisions on the 1840 Census, although the lands were formally Polk's in 1837), Aaron was STILL in the same place .... in the lower Niangua River Basin area, but now the area was now Washington Township, Polk. Before the finial decision regarding "old Marshal law Wyatt", Aaron was arrested and arained in Polk court 1836, for drinking and passing the flask around for a contribution to the cost AT THE PLEASANT VIEW CHURCH established 1804 (now in Webster Co) and assaulting a peace officer when the sherrif tryed to manicale him. Aaron was in his 50s and the sherrif was a relatively young man. Aaron flattened him much to the Sherrif's embarasment. Both cases were dismissed, but Aaron was also stripped of his Justice of the Peace title. Then Polk cut off Ninagua in 1841 and Niangua was renamed Dallas in 1844, later in 1849 Dallas cut off a part that became part of Wright, then in 1855 Wright gave the old part of Dallas to Webster. Aaron died in 1845, in Dallas Co, (now Webster Co)this documentation is in one of his daughter's bibles (Elizabeth Spohn or Span Miller), and is also in the 20 Dec 1845 issue of the Springfield newspaper which was a notice to settle his estate. Does anyone have any information regarding where Aaron and Pharaby lived between 1814 and 1816?, his brother John Span was in the Bayous of what is now Arkansas, as he had his land petition refused there in 1818. 1818 Aaron and Pharaby were back in Warren Co, Ky as this is where the wagon train for the Lower Niangua River Basin grouped up. Does anyone have any information regarding the "missing names of his children?" Does anyone know the location of the orginial PLEASANT VIEW BAPTIST CHURCH (was in Dallas and is now in Webster Co southwest of Elkland). It was established 1804, and the church house was moved to the present location on 38 I believe..... I am hoping that Aaron is buried there and Pharaby his first wife. I have the descents of Benjamin 1815, Joseph M. 1817, Willimam Jordan Span 1819, Thomas 1820, Elizabeth (my ancestor) 1824. Would appreciate any information .....

Have just discovered g-grandfather was Henry Olan KNIGHT, born Conway, Laclede County June 24, 1885, died Richland Washington, Sept. 11, 1968. During early 1900's he moved to Oklahoma, where my grandfather, Karl Ian KNIGHT was born. My gg-grandfather was Franklin Pierce KNIGHT born New Hampshire July 1854. Don't know when he moved to Conway, Laclede County, but married Margaret Roena SCHMALHORST in Conway on September 7, 1876. Franklin Pierce KNIGHT died October 18, 1942, I'm assuming in Conway though my info does not say where. Margaret Roena SCHMALHORST was born in Conway, Laclede County on August 23, 1856 and died in Conway August 11, 1938. According to my info, which is from "A history of the SCHMALHORST, SMALLHORST, SMALLHURST and WEIBERG, WEYBERG, WHYBARK families in America",by Frances Ferrier Hanks, copyright 1990, Franklin and Margaret owned a farm north of Conway and later purchased a grist mill from her father. If anyone is familiar with this family, I am interested in knowing where the farm and grist mill were located. Also, if it is known in which cemetery they are buried. Finally, I will be attempting to trace back to New Hampshire and would like to know if Franklin alone came to Conway, or if he came with family. I have yet to discover my ggg-grandparents names on the Knight side. Also, if anyone is still researching and updating the SCHMALHORST Family History, I can at least correct the entry on my family: Pg 151, #420: Dexter James Knight (twin), born St. Louis, MO November 30, 1939, married Judith (Judy) Lee Aubuchon on September 29, 1961 in St. Louis, MO. Judith Lee Aubuchon was born St. Louis, MO, November 16, 1942. They had one child: Cheryl Lynn Knight, born St. Louis, MO, May 10, 1962, married Ray Evan Dinkins on October 6, 1984, in St. Louis, MO. Ray Evan Dinkins was born St. Louis, MO, June 22, 1959. They have three children: Amy Nicole Dinkins, born St. Louis, MO, January 7, 1989 Katie Lynn Dinkins, born Kissimmee, FL, February 23, 1998 (twin) Emma Marie Dinkins, born Kissimmee, FL, February 23, 1998 (twin)

Wilse (Wilson) R. HOWARD of Harlan, Ky was executed by hanging in Lebanon, Mo for the murder of a deaf-mute named MCMICHAELS; reportedly this hanging occured 4 Aug 1894. Is there a local paper from that era or other source, perhaps from a library that could add to my limited information?
