I am wanting any information on Sarah Jane (DONALDSON) SMITH ADAMS, who was the dau. of Abraham and Sarah DONALDSON.
There were three boys and 4 girls born to Abraham and Sarah DONALDSON: David; Samuel, who married Margaret Mildred ROOK, in Mercer Co.; Calvin, who married Henrietta ADAMS in Mercer Co.; Mary; Martha; Rachel; and Sarah Jane.
Sarah Jane, b. 1851, m.1st Hiram SMITH in Ashland Co., Ohio in 1870. One dau., Icy A., was b. 1871. Sarah Jane married 2nd John Quincy ADAMS in Mercer Co.,Mo. about 1876, and is buried with him in the Wilder Cem. in Mercer Co. John Q. ADAMS was b. 1819. He was 32 years older than Sarah. Don't know if he was married before, but they had two children: Lula May, b. July 28, 1878, and James Monroe, b. Aug. 14, 1882, both in Mercer, Mercer Co., Mo. I think they are also buried in Wilder Cem. in Mercer Co., Mo. I would appreciate any info from any grandchildren or decendants on any of the above children.
Thanks, Ramon L. Wright

Elton or Alton CARRISON died in Princeton, Mercer County, Missouri, according to the obituary of one of his children. The date of Elton CARRISON's death was 1925. Need some kind soul to assist me in finding the exact date and any obituary there might have been for Elton CARRISON.
Thank you. Tom Constable

I am seeking information on my my great-great-grandfather, Ambrose DAY, and family. I know that they settled in Mercer County in about 1842/3 and were in Morgan Township. Would like to know if there is a way to obtain an obituary on Ambrose and/or his wife Catherine. Ambrose died March 4 1889 and is buried in the Underwood Cemetery near Princeton. Catherine died July 6 1909 in Oklahoma.
How would I find out if Ambrose had a will?
Thank you. Janice Stratman

I am looking for information regarding my great-grandmother, Nellie HUNTER. I know that she was from Ravanna, was widowed, and had seven children--Donald, Patrick, Andrew, Ruby, Alice, Marguerite, and my grandmother, Mary Frances. I believe the family attended the Ravanna Baptist Church. Any information that you may have would be greatly appreciated.
Thank You, Rachael M. Byrne

I am seeking information about my MACRAE great-grandparents, John and Catherine, who lived in Ravanna, Mercer County, from about 1870 to about 1888.
Three of their children are buried in the cemetery at Ravanna:
John Charles, William G., and Lewis H MacRae, all of whom died in 1875.
Their other children were Duncan, Katherine, Franklin, Alfred Burnett (our grandfather),Tolbert, and 3 others whose names we do not know.
We think that John MACRAE died in about 1888 in Ravanna and would be grateful for any record that might confirm this - perhaps a newspaper article? And for any other information anyone might have about this family.

Per the 1870 Census, I have found my WHALEY, James H., and wife Sarah M., and family. They are in Madison Township, Mercer County. The city is listed as Goshen. Per 1880 Census, this same WHALEY, James H. family is living in Mercer County but in Washington Township. No city listed. Is there a way to find out what city from the E.D. # 232 that is listed on the census form??
Also, does anyone have any information on this family they would share with me? The children of James & Sarah were:
Buena Vista (my great grandmother)
Thanks for any help you may offer.
