SURNAMES: GETTLER

I am searching for the Gettlers of Marion Co. They were farmers. They lived near Hannibal. They had four sons and two daughters. Three of the sons were; Warren Roy, Howard and Carl. One of the daughters was ( I believe ) Agnes. The other two names I do not remember. They were of German decent. I don't know the names of the parents, if they came from Germany, or were born here. I would very much appreciate all the help I can get. The childred were born in the late 1800's, so I would put the parents births somewhere about 1860's or 1870's.

I know that william perry was born in missouri in 1851, and that there was a william p jackson listed on the missouri marion county federal census for 1860 who was 9 years old. The next census of 1870 doesn't list him, but he would have been 19 yo and probably out in the world making it on his own. I searched the IGI records and found that a James Walls Jackson of Marion COunty made a will out 16 Jul 1851, listing a william as one of his heirs.

I am currently trying to find the parents of William Perry Jackson. He was born in Missouri in 1851. The only listing I could find for Missouri in 1860 was in the Marion County census. It listed a William P. Jackson, age 9, father James W. Jackson of Warren Twp. The 1870 census did not list William P. Jackson as a member of the James W Jackson household, but he would have been 19 years old, and probably moved elsewhere. The dilemna is this....the census for Marion County only shows the middle initial, not the middle name. The birth records for Missouri prior to 1860's are almost non-existent because of the war. If anyone has access to records (probate, etc) which may list the middle name, could they please check them and let me know?

I recently found that my great-great grandfather, Vachel Hinton, obtained a land grant in Palmyra around 1853. We have been trying to locate where he may be buried. I have found that his will was probated in St. Clair County, IL. This information was found in Belleville and there is no record of his buriel. Since he obtained the land grant the same year that he died I was hopeful that he may have been buried at Palmyra. Would it be possible to obtain this information? I have called the library there and was told the cemetery records were not indexed but  they hoped to have them done sometime in late September. I understand that there is no genealogical society there as well. She also gave me a web page address of Pbpl@nemonet.com and I have been unable to access it so I wondered if it may be an incorrect address.

Namely, EDWIN DUNN, born about 1811, and his wife JACOBINA/JACKALINA SIMMONS, born 1816/1817. They had following children: William b: 1841; Morgan b: 1843; Susan b: 1845; Eli, born 1848; Dorcas, born 1852; George E. born 1853, married Mary Snodgrass 20, Dec. 1879; and Robert B., born 2 Apr. 1855, married Martha J. RAGAN 15 Apr. 1877. Robert B. Dunn is my ancestor. He and his wife had a son, Willie, born 1879, but apparently Martha and Willie must have both died, as Robert Dunn moved to Erath County, TX and later to Hood County, TX and became a doctor. He eventually married 3 more times and had one daughter, Mattie Levenia Dunn (Meeker). The name TRIPLETT is associated with the DUNN and SIMMONS family, mainly by UNCLE WILLIAM TRIPLETT who lived in Marion County, Mo. in the 1870's and later is shown in 1900 census as living with Dr. Robert Dunn in Hood County, Texas.
