HAINES, TURNER posted by Eric Newsom on Saturday, November 29, 1997

Samuel TURNER, h/o Abigail HAINES, from Culpeper Co., VA to Ralls Co., MO in 1820s. What were their connections with Aaron and Sarah Haines of Calhoun Co., IL, just across the River? Levi Haines Turner, s/o Samuel and Abigail, lived in Calhoun Co., IL and appears to have had some close relationship to them and their children, Sanford, Caroline, John, Harriet and Adaline. Caroline later was known as "Turner" rather than Haines, though contemporaneous documents prove her parentage. What was her connection to Levi Haines Turner and the Turner and Haines/Hanes/Haynes families of Ralls Co.?

I'm looking for any information on Jackson WOODSON. He appears to have lived somewhere in the vicinity of Ralls/Pike/Audrian Co. between 1840 and 1846. It appears that he died 1846-1850 and his children were sent to live with William Woodson (a brother?) in Pike Co. The children were Henry, Marion Jefferson, and Mary E. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

WILLIAMSON posted by Sheila Williamson on Tuesday, December 16, 1997

I have been stumped on tracing my early Ralls County resident back into Kentucky. I have been unable to locate his family in Kentucky. Charles Williamson was born about 1802 in Kentucky where his first child was also born in 1832. He was an early land owner in Ralls County. I believe Charles died before 1860 because his wife Sarah Elizabeth and some of the children are on 1860 census but Charles is missing. The family briefly lived in Dodge (later Putnam) County, Missouri before moving back to Ralls County by 1860. Children of Charles and Sarah Elizabeth Williamson were: 1. Mason b. 1832 KY 2. Catherine b. 1835MO, md. George R. Rhodes 1856 in Ralls Co. 3. Elizabeth J. b. 1838 MO, possibly md. Jim Rhoades in Ralls Co. 4. George E. b. 1840 MO, md. Sarah F. Wright possibly in Howard Co., MO 5. Devury (Debba) b. 1842 MO 6. Delaney (Lane) b. 1844 MO, md. Mary Frances Bradley 1875 in Ralls Co. 7. James W. Williamson b. 1845 MO, md. Mary Matilda McCalister 1867 in Putnam Co., MO 8. Thomas James (my great grandfather) b. 1848 MO, md. Elizabeth Wright about 1875 possibly in Howard Co., MO 9. Sarah L. b. 1850 MO, md. William Shaver 1868 in Ralls Co. Any help on this family greatly appreciated.
