Their son, James Henderson WARF, is the only child listed with them. He is 15 and was born in IL. I may have found this same family living in Franklin County, IL in the 1830 census, though further verification is necessary. If it is them, they had at least three other children. I have not found them on the 1820, 1840, or 1860 censuses, although I do find James Henderson in 1860. I have checked Wayne County, MO, but have had no luck. I know they were in Butler and Dunklin Counties. I know they lived around Ash Hill, Bernie, Maldon, and Senath, and James Henderson lived in Greene County, AR later. I would truly appreciate any help you might give me in finding John and Bithia's death dates, places of burial, census citations for decades I don't have, or any other information about them. I am also very open to suggestions about Missouri research. They are as far back as I can go with my WARF line. Family stories say John was half Cherokee or Saponie Indian.

LEE, NORMAN posted by Carl L. Glover on Saturday, June 20, 1998

I would appreciate any information about the family of John LEE who died intestate in New Madrid Co., MO; probated 16 Mar. 1837. (#86 & 87). Children listed were Mary LEE, Thomas LEE, Lemuel LEE, John LEE, and Elizabeth Rebecca LEE. Administrator was Jeremiah LEE. Would like to know if listed child named John LEE was the John LEE who married Margaret NORMAN about 1837...they lived in Stoddard Co., MO in 1840. John and Margaret LEE had children Nancy C. LEE, born 1838 or 1839 and Frances Abigail LEE, born 1841. John LEE died when Frances Abigail LEE was a baby... so he likely died about 1841/1842. So far I'm at a dead end trying to locate the ancestry and beginnings of this John LEE, who is my G G G grandfather, and who was born between 1810-1820 and died 1841/1842. Will gladly exchange information. Thanks.

BARNES, Charles "Charley" Franklin I have recently learned that my grandfather was born in or near Bernie in Stoddard Co. MO March 27 1884 or possibly per 1900 census, the year 1886. He was 1 of 9 children of Alanson Barnes born 1836 in NY state., and Harriet Moore Barnes born 1848 and originally from PA.. names of other children were John w b. 1881 in Minnesota, Pearl A b. 1883 in Minnesota, Charley, and then Lillie M b. 1887 in MO, also Mittie R. b. 1890 in MO. It is possible the family moved on to Oregon Co MO. Where would I apply to find some sort of birth record for them? or genealogical society. As an adult at about age 40 Charley married my grandmother Isa Lou Eudaly SMITH around 1923 in Dunklin Co near Cardwell.. Between them they had 10 living children. I would very much appreciate any help given. Thank you.
