When I was born, we lived in Caldwell County, MO and now live in Daviess County, MO. I have lived in these two counties all my life, except for 7 years when I was a child and lived near Abilene, KS. I have always enjoyed sitting at the table at family dinners and hearing the older people tell stories about people and times in the past. I became involved in looking for my genealogy when I got a computer a few years ago. My grandparents are buried in Caldwell County and some of my great and great-great grandparents as well. Some of the names I am researching are LOONEY, SLOAN, FARR, GREEN on my side and HOOD, GARRISON, STORY, HARRIS on my husband's side.
If you are looking for further information on Caldwell or Daviess County, Missouri ancestors, the following are some of my favorite websites:
Was Alice Hanna Wagner (Find-a-Grave record 53735166) the wife/widow of Lester Franklin Hanna (record #53735142) who died in 1928? I found a marriage license of an Alice N. Hanna who married M. Ellwood Wagner in Kansas City in 1928; they were listed in the 1930 US Census living in KCMO. Alice may have been Alice Light (Nichols) Hanna.
Mary Polly Moss Alexander # 117765967 Caryn -- thank you for creating this memorial -- however, would you please remove the tombstone picture on this memorial, as it is apparently the tombstone of a child who died in the 1870's and not Mary Polly Moss Alexander. We have been in that cemetery and have not found a tombstone for her. Thank you.
