Researching the Porter and Johnson families of Laclede and Pulaski counties in southwest Missouri.

Thomas Martin Johnson is the son of Thomas L. Johnson, b. abt 1840 in Missouri, probably Laclede County area, d. abt 1874 on his farm in Mayfield Township, Laclede County, MO, and Harriett Henry, who married Samuel Crumley after Thomas L. Johnson died. Hannah Olive Porter is the daughter of Valentine Porter, b. 5 September 1828 in Wendell, Franklin County, MA, d. 28 August 1900 in Richland, Pulaski County, MO, m.(1) to Lydia Augusta Smith, b. 9 November 1851 in Lebanon, York County, ME, d. 5 January 1938 in Coshocton County, OH. Valentine Porter m. (2) Malissa Morton after divorce from Lydia Smith abt 1883.
I now know that Valentine Porter is buried in Oaklawn Cemetery in Richland and that Harriet Henry and Samuel Crumley are buried in Dowty Cemetery.

His gravestone is between them on the southeast corner of the old section and they are really large ones indicating old age. He was buried in 1900.
Would like to find a local Pulaski/Laclede county researcher to discover probate information, land holdings, etc. on these people. Contact Charles E. Templer at 12221 Wedd, Overland Park, KS or (913) 685-3219 if you have information or would like to help.

I am researching Michael DREWRY/DRURY, b. ca. 1830 IL, prob d. bef. 1870, of unknown parents. Michael m. bef. 1849 Medaline ???, b. Sep 1825, TN, d. after 1900 probably in Boone Co., AR, of unknown parents. Michael and Medaline were the parents of at least: Salona A., b. ca. 1849 MO; Sarah Isabella, b. 1 Jan 1853, Laclede Co., MO, d. 27 Jul 1930 Boone Co., AR, m. James William MAYES; Mary Susan, b. 11 Jun 1855, MO, d. 8 Oct 1878; Phebe F. Ellen, b. 22 Dec 1856 MO, d. 5 Nov 1921 Boone Co., AR, m. 12 Apr 1875 Carroll Co., AR C. G. oKitoe STRICKLEN. At least Sarah Isabella, Mary Susan and Phebe F. Ellen (and her husband) are buried at White Church Cem., near Gaither, Boone Co., AR. Michael and Medaline DREWRY/DRURY are first found in 1850 US Census, District No. 45, Laclede Co., MO. That record shows: Michael Drury, age 20, b. IL.; "Chilnuncy" M., age 24, b. TN.; Enoch P. "Griggs", age 3, b. MO.; Salonia A. Drury, age 11/12, b. MO.; Elizabeth Drury, age 64, b. SC; Marthia Dobbs, age 17, b. TN. I have speculated that "Chilnuncy M." is Medaline who may have been married earlier and may have been the mother of Enoch P. "Griggs". Salonia A. Drury matches both in full name, age and birth location to their daughter found in later records. Elizabeth Drury may have been Michael's mother and Martha Dobbs may have been Chilnuncy/Medaline's sister (since near the same age and both born in TN.) The birth location of Sarah Elizabeth, Michael and MedalineAEs daughter born in 1853, is recorded on her death certificate as "Lakelead, MO.", which I believe is a phonetic spelling of Laclede Co., Missouri. At least Sarah Isabelle (DREWRY) MAYES and Phebe F. Ellen (DREWRY) STRICKLEN always lived in Boone Co., AR and had several children. If anyone has information on any of these families I would appreciate hearing from you.
