Looking for marriage record bet Apr 1863 and Aug 1864, Princeton, Morgan Twp, Mercer County, MO for George W. ARNEL/ARNOLD who was married to Sarah (SWENGEN RUTAN) in "western Missouri" by a minister. Religion not known.
By Aug 1864, George W. ARNEL enlisted as a private in Co. D 44th Missouri Infantry from Princeton, MO.
In his Civil War Pension papers, he replied when asked, "What record of marriage exists?", "None, as in MO they do not keep records".
Need help in finding this record.

I am looking for information on Charles Z. BAXTER who was married to Clara or Clarissa Emeline ELLIS. Clara was the daughter of Benjamin D. ELLIS and Sophia WYATT. I have the birth records of two of their children, born in Mercer County in 1883 and 1885, but cannot find the birth record of John Curtis BAXTER born near Princeton in 1882. Also have 1850 Census verifying Clara's age, parents' names, and location in Mercer County. One birth record listed Chas. Y. BAXTER, but this was obviously a transcription error, as the other record is correct and I have conclusive evidence that his full name was Charles Zebulon BAXTER, born in Erie, PA. Some people did call him Ezra later, when he lived in Oklahoma. So far, I have found him married to five different women in his life, and Clara ELLIS was the second. Any information would be appreciated, and I would be happy to share what I have with others as well.

I have a photo in my family album taken Feb 2, 1902 listed as “Our Old Home taken by Mill Grove”.
I believe pictured in the photo are the James Leander ROBISON family. They must have moved from Worth Co., MO some time after the 1900 census and returned to Worth Co. a year or 2 after the photo was taken. James dying in Worth Co. in 1913.
But… It is also possible pictured are from my GIBSON family who were known to be in Mercer Co., MO.
I would love to speak with any who are aware of either of these families.

I am looking for any information on the Thomas surname. Joseph, William, Anderson, and John came from Ray County, abt 1847 or 1848, to Mercer County and farmed in the area many years. Anderson Thomas was magistrate, I think, about 1847 or 1848, and moved to Cass County, Illinois abt. 1864. Two brothers Joseph and William, are buried in Mercer County, Missouri. I think John moved back to Ray County and is buried there. I am a decendent of Anderson Thomas, and am seeking any information on the other brothers: Joseph born 1814 Campbell County, Tennessee; William born 1815 in Campbell County, Tennessee; John born 1810 in Virginia; Anderson born 1822 in Campbell County, Tennessee,. and any of their decendents.
