Madison and Rosalie Lisa Ely
I saw your posting on findagrave and have a lot of information on this family. This timing is ironic since I just wrote an article and it was published by the Trenton Sun, in Trenton, IL this past week on Rosalie.
Here is a bit of information that may help.
Manuel did not establish Ft. Mandan. He established Fort Lisa near Omaha Nebraska. He established a few other 'forts' along the Missouri and tributaries but were just fortified trading posts.
The Maha (Omaha) tribe was established near Ft. Lisa and that's how he came upon Mitain. She was the eldest daughter of Big Elk. He married her while married to Mary Polly Charles Chew back in St. Louis.
Mitain had two children by Manuel. Rosalie and Christopher. Rosalie was born on November 29, 1815 and Christopher apparently followed in 1817(?). Rosalie was taken, apparently forcibly, and spirited to St. Louis in 1818 (some say 1817). She was baptized on July 10, 1818. She was listed as a boarder in the convent school founded by Philipine Duchesne and Bishop Dubourg in Florissant. When Manuel died she moved in with the Hempstead family and appears to have traveled to Galena with her widowed, step(?)-mother Mary Keeney Lisa to attend to an ailing brother. She comes back to this area and appears to have lived with a Mrs. Collins in Collinsville, I suspect a member of the town's founding family. She joins the Bethel Baptist Church and meets Madison there. They then move on to be founding constituents of the Oak Hill Baptist Church just east of O'fallon. Madison and an infant son are buried in this cemetery behind the church (church is long gone). At about the time of his death in 1864 the family moves to Trenton where she joins the Methodist Episcopal Church and dies on Dec. 22, 1904.

I would love to talk with you at more detail so if you would like to drop me a note I would totally welcome that. Thanks.

Kory Family Plot
In addition to the three that you requested there are several other Korys buried in the family plot.
There is a Lillian and a Leo and I think one or two others.
I did not take pictures of these since they were not requested, but I can go back and do so if you so desire.

RE: Lemma Barkeloo
No thanks goes to the wonderful staff at Green-Wood Cemetery, I only pointed them to her grave marker. They were working in the area and raised the stone. The very white white part of the stone was the only part of the marker visible in 2 -3 years time it would have disappeared.

RE: The Mitchells
I always love to hear family stories. I almost feel like I met them too.
They are in a pretty room. Called family rooms.

RE: German Evangelical Church
It's off of Dutchtown Rd just outside of Dutchtown, but the signs have been removed. It's easier for me to show you where it is than to tell you.

Re William Hamilton McAfee Transfer
Ohhh, Anna! It is now I who am touched by your kindness and thoughtfulness. What a beautiful gift you are giving me. I couldn't be more pleased.

It took years of diligent research for me to finally connect my GGGrandfather, Samuel L McAfee, to his parents, William Hamilton and Indiana McAfee and their heritage. After his mother's death in 1846, Samuel (born in 1834) was sent or brought to Callaway County, Missouri to live with his married aunt, Mary McClung (McAfee) Bennett and her growing family. Samuel remained in the same general area in Missouri, marrying a young woman who lived close by and having six children. He was a Captain in the Missouri State Guard during the Civil War, serving as Commissary Officer ... a big change from his regular work in farming and carpentry. Sadly, he missed seeing all his children mature, as he died in 1876, leaving his wife to carry on, as many women in those post-war days were left to handle the ongoing family responsibilities in the absence of their husbands. Yes, indeed. The McAfee Family is one I embrace with pride and joy ... now that I've found them!

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Anna, from the bottom of my heart!!!

Most sincerely,

Teri-Sue :-)

Concerning your ancestor Mary Ann Swindle, who married Stephens. Her father Joseph Swindle was the brother of my ancestor. Joseph Swindle actually raised my own ancestor Nancy W. Swindle after her mother died in Ashe Co NC. Joseph Swindle was from a GERMAN community in central Virginia. His father was Rev War Vet who died in KY. Joseph's wife Mary Ann Brown came from a very old family line of Virginia, which I also have researched. I found her ancestry by chance actually. You can email me direct and I can send you a SWINDLE report as well as the BROWN report. My email address is listed on findagrave. The name is SWINDLE, however in Missouri they spelled it as Swindell. Best regards, Lilly Martin
