The Henry Sonner family moves to Missouri about 1845. They are in Lincoln County in 1850. In 1858 Henry dies. In 1860 his daughter Sarah Catherine marries John Wilson in Lincoln county. John joins the rebel army and Sarah vanishes. The remander of the Soner family begins moving to Vernon County. Family members are Jane,George,Virginia,Mary,Helen,Henry C., Thomas J., and Sarah Myers. The last of the family moves in 1887. Some were buried in Berea Cemetary. Blue Mound Township is mentioned, as is the town of Myrtle. Please help me find out if Sarah Catherine Sonner Wilson, moved to Vernon County, and if she died or got a divorce while she was there. When John Wilson finally got home from the war, he didn't seem to have a wife.

I am looking for any information (birth, marriage, death records, directories, taxes, cemetery records, anything at all) for the VETTERS family. Three generations of the Vetters lived in Coal Township in Vernon County during the 1870's, 1880's and 1890's. Part of the family moved to Colorado after 1902, but I am sure that some of the family likely stayed in Missouri. I would appreciate ANY information! Thank you -

Date: 12 May 2002

In looking up information in Vernon Co. MO, I noticed that John Hill was a registered voter in 1866. My ggreatgrandfather, John Hill, was living in MO in at that time, but I can't find out where. He was in Benton Co. in 1870, and possibly at least 2 years prior to that, then he was in Jasper Co. in 1880. He rode with Quantrill on the Lawrence Raid in 1863. I am wondering if the John Hill listed in Vernon Co. might be my ggreatgrandfather?? Another reason it caught my attention is there was also listed a John Foster. John Foster, my greatgrandfather, married John Hill's daughter. John Foster was born in Warsaw in 1846. I was wondering if there would be anymore information on either of these 2 men in records there. I am especiallly looking for anything on John Hill. By the way, my gggreatgrandfather, John Hill's name is John F. Hill. He was born in Va in 1824. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Victoria Sills
