Hiner stone in Warren-Miller cemetery
Diana, I have added new notes to Lewis Hyner/Hiner, who I have attributed the HINER stone in Warren-Miller cemetery. It does seem that he was NOT buried in Texas, as his will indicated he never left Jackson County, Georgia. It is possible that it is his wife Nancy Myer Heiner that could have come to live in Texas and that the gravestone is hers, although at this time, I have NO PROOF of this either. I will continue to work on this "puzzle" and hope that we can determine who that stone was placed for.

His full name was Elias P. Richard Murrill. He was known as "Dick". Please post this to his bio. Source: Goodspeed's 1889 History of Texas Co., MO.

E. P. Murrill, who is also closely associated with the farming and stock dealing interests of Texas County. was born in Jefferson County,
Mo., July 29, 1844, being the son of Elias (born November 4, 1810)and Jane A.

He was married in Jefferson County, Mo., May 18, 1869, to Miss Lucy Maness, a native of Missouri, born December 5, 1847,
and the daughter of Elijah Maness, born September 7, 1811, and Mary Ann (Murrell) Maness, natives of Tennessee and Missouri, respectively. Mr. and Mrs. Murrill have reared three sons and two

James W. Jones
Please post to his bio. Source: Goodspeed's 1889 History of Texas Co., MO.

Hon. James W. Jones. Among the prominent citizens and prosperous farmers of Texas County, Mo., who started in life for themselves with a very small portion of this world’s goods, but who have
attained a secure and high position on the ladder of success, may be mentioned Mr. Jones, who is the youngest of ten children, and was born in Clinton County, Ky., April 20, 1823. He acquired a good education in his youthful days, and at the age of twenty years left home, and came to Chariton County, Mo., where he was first engaged
in breaking hemp at $12 per month, and at the breaking out of the Mexican War enlisted in Company K, Second Missouri Cavalry, under
Col. Sterling Price, and was out twelve months, participating in the battles of Cannatta, Lamputher and Toas. At the last named battle
he received a wound in the left thigh that came very near being fatal. In 1850 he went to California, driving an ox team as far as Salt Lake, and made the rest of the way on horseback. He was engaged in mining in that State until 1853, then went to Australia, where he mined for about a year, then returned to his home, and engaged in farming in Chariton County. During the late war he served for a short time in the Missouri State Guard, and April 3, 1855, was married to Mary Porch, a native of Tennessee, born May 28, 1821, her father being Israel, the first settler of Porch's Prairie, in Chariton County. To Mr. and Mrs. Jones a family of three children were born: Jonathan, John and an infant (deceased). Both sons are married, and residing near their parents. Mr. Jones is the owner of 1,000 acres of land, with about 300 acres under cultivation, and owing to his many sterling business qualities his labors have been attended with good success. While in Chariton County he held the oflice of justice of the peace, and in 1877-78 he represented Texas County in the State
Legislature. He is a Democrat and Mason, and a son of Jonathan and Mary (Humphries) Jones, who were born, respectively, in North Carolina and Georgia. At at early day the father moved with his
brother, on pack-horses, from North Carolina to Kentucky, and settled in Clinton County, whither the mother came when a young woman. They were married and spent their lives in that county, and were engaged in agricultural pursuits, and in his political views the father was a Democrat. They were members of the Presbyterian and Baptist Churches, and died at the ages of sixty-five and seventy-three,respectively.

Jesse Franklin Beeler
Info from History of Texas Co., MO by Goodspeed:
Jesse Franklin Beeler, a prominent farmer and stock raiser of
Burdine Township, was born in Sullivan County, Tenn., December
22, 1805, and is one of the old and much esteemed citizens of the
county. He is the son of Daniel and Margaret (Sharrartz) Beeler,
and the grandson of Jacob Beeler, who served all through the Revolutionary War, and drew a pension until his death, for services
rendered. He was an American by birth, but of Swedish descent.
Margaret Sharrartz was the daughter of Conrad Sharrartz, a
European, who came to America with his parents when he was but five
years of age. On both sides of Jesse F. Beeler’s ancestry may be
found people of excellent standing and business ability. Both the
grandparents are buried in the Beeler cemetery, Sullivan County,
East Tenn., near the Virginia line. When the subject of this sketch
was but four years of age his parents moved to Claiborne County,
Tenn., where he grew to manhood. He assisted his father on the
farm, and after his twenty-third year he followed boat building and
farming, and made trips to points south of his home, in Alabama and
other States, trading with Indians and others with dilferent stock or
articles of merchandise. He subsequently farmed and traded in
horses, doing business through the South a great deal, and dealing
often with the Indian traders. He was also identified with the dis
tillery business. In 1850 or 1851 he came to Missouri, and located
first in Jefferson County, where he followed farming, principally,
until 1868, when he came to Texas County, and located upon his
present farm, two miles east of Cabool. He married his first wife,
Mary Dyer, in Grainger County, Tenn., whom he buried there in the
Beeler grave-yard. She left him five daughters: Cynthia Jane,
deceased wife of Green Harrington; Mary Orlena, deceased wife of
Reeves Beevers; Matilda Caroline, wife of Judge John Hagenbush;
Martha Elizabeth, wife of James Wiley, merchant of Moselle. Mo.,
and Melissa Ann, wife of James Jones, of St. Louis, Mo. Mr. Beeler
married his second wife, Elizabeth Sellers, in Grainger County, Tenn. ,and buried her on the way to Missouri, at Eastport. She left him a
son and daughter: Margaret Ellen, wife of Robert Lemmens, and
James K. P., a substantial farmer of Texas County. Mr. Beeler is a
member of the Missionary Baptist Church; is a member of the Agri
cultural Wheel, and while yet a comparatively young man filled the
position of a commissioned ofiicer in the State Militia. In Tennessee he served as justice of the peace for about fifteen years, and
about the same length of time in East Tennessee. Mr. Beeler at this
writing is eighty-four years of age, and says he is thankful to God for the many favors and blessings conferred by that omniscient Creator.

JJ Kennedy #35021735
Since JJ Kennedy died in 1899,there is no way he could be the spouse of Walter Slotwinski who wasn't born until 1919 (and died in 1977.) Please remove Walter Slotwinski as JJ Kennedy's spouse. JJ Kennedy's spouse was actually one
Jennie Zellweger. They married 28 Dec 1886 in
Howell, Missouri, USA. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Donna Bales
