Jeremiah Routh
You have listed as siblings to Jeremiah Routh the following:

Nancy F. Routh born 1806
James Routh born 1815

You have the mother Martha (Redfern) Routh born 1747 which is correct but the above two children are not correct. She would have been 59 when Nancy was born and 68 when James was born. I have never seen those two names connected with Jacob and Martha (Redfern) Routh's family so perhaps those two belong to another Routh family.

Thank you for all your dedication and hard work!!

Would you please contact me by email re: your research on the parentage of this infant? The death certificate says mother Etta Unk and my research shows the father married to a different Etta. Thanks.

re: Thomas Hardwick
He is my 5th great grandfather. I noticed you are a great great grand-daughter too. Is there anything else you might be able to tell me about him?

Thomas Hardwick. b. 1807
Hi Kerri,

Thomas is my 4x GGF. His daughter Mariah (b. 1791) married Fleming Thomas according to the records I have. Their son Thomas Turpin Thomas (b.1810) married Nancy Curl, and they migrated to Washington and eventually Oregon, traveling with the Robinette wagon train in 1851.

It has been difficult to find much information about Mariah, other than her father's name. I am also dead ended on Nancy Curl.

If you have other information about these families that you would be willing to share, I would be most appreciative, and of course would be glad to reciprocate.

Cheers,

I am a descendent of Thomas Larue and have been looking for his death information. He died per find-a-grave 11 Aug 1973. Would you know if there was an Obituary in a local paper? And if so, how I might get a copy?

Hello Kerri! RH Miller was my GG Grandfather and I am having trouble finding out much about him and wife Eliza. My great grandmother, Leona, was their daughter. I see you posted a picture of their stone and there's a link to one daughter, Mattie. Are you related? I think there were 5 girls....Leona, Mattie, Pandie, Pearl and Liza M. I would appreciate any info you might have on the RH Miller Family. Also, might you transfer the memorial to me if you're not related? Thank you very much.

Best Regards,

Smith and Hefner family research
A man named Jas. M. Busby performed the marriage of my great grandparents, Daniel Fields Smith and Mollie Josephine Jordan at the Busby residence at the "Old Slew Mill" on July 28, 1887. The marriage license shows both grandparents lived in Pike Township, Stoddard County, Missouri. Stoddard County Historical Society in Bloomfield shows this location as "Mill Slough" which is located at Clines Island near Bloomfield, MO. Is this the SMITH family you are researching on Find a Grave? The Smith family married into the HEFNER family and I can put you in touch with them. I'm hoping Jas. M. Busby is your relative so I can learn more about my great grandparents. I wondered if Jas. M. was related to either of my great grandparents. I've traced the Smith family back to 1794.

Thank you for any response, and I'm hopeful we can assist each other.

Kerri,
I came upon this wonderful obit. Please share it on Albert's bio. The obit even used the same photo, but it is in too poor a condition to add as a photo. Please let me know when the lengthy bio is added and I shall remove the hand written obit.

Thank you for your contributions.

A. F. SMITH CALLED TO ETERNAL REST

Passed away at the Home Last Thursday Afternoon Following Six Months Illness---Funeral Sunday

Albert F., Smith passed away at his home on West Second Street Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock following an illness of about six month duration. Heart trouble, which he had been afflicted for a long time, was the cause of his death, which came suddenly.

Albert F.Smith was a native of Carroll county; Missouri, being born at Mandeville on December 13, 1863. He was the son of William P. Smith and Susan (Traughber) Smith, natives of Mississippi and Kentucky respectively. His paternal grandfather, John Smith, was a| native of Tennessee and moved to Carroll county in 1842.

Albert F. Smith was one of a family of seven children, one of whom had preceded him in death. He was reared in this county and after completing his common school course attended for a term an academy at Avalon, where he obtained a knowledge of the higher branches of learning. With a well disciplined mind and a natural aptness for the work, he turned his attention to teaching which he continued for a number of years in his native county and a part of one year in California. He went to the latter state in 1889 and remained until 1895, when he returned to Carrollton and entered the employ of the New York Store, in which capacity he remained until 1916. He formed a partnership with F. A. Early in that year and started the Smith-Early Clothing Co., continuing in this business until 1926, when he was elected recorder of deeds for Carroll county.

He was married to Miss Maggie Meier on October 23, 1889 and the first years of his married life were spent in California, where from 1890 to 1895 he was in the newspaper business and succeeded well as an editor and publisher. Two children survive this union, Miss Vida Pauline Smith and Miss Beulah M. Smith the former being the present county recorder, appointed by Gov. Park following the resignation of her father several months ago and the latter is music supervisor in the Carrollton public schools.

After serving four years as county recorder, Mr. Smith was re-elected to that office for another four year term but during the later part of last year was forced to give up his work in the office. Failing to regain his health he resigned in January of this year.

Few residents of Carrollton were as well known as the deceased. He managed the different positions he held with ability and tact. He enjoyed the confidence of all those with whom he came into contact and was held in the highest esteem by an unusually large circle of friends. He was a gentleman of intelligence and culture, of pleasing address and demeanor, and he possessed the faculty of making and retaining warm friendships. He was one of the most loyal supporters of the Christian Church at Carrollton, of which he became a member in 1899. No one ever tried harder to follow the teachings of his Master more than Mr. Smith and his death is a regrettable loss to the community.

Others who survive him besides his two daughters include three brothers and two sisters: Everett Smith, of Idaho; Virgil Smith, of Crecent, Ok; Herschel Smith, of Memphis, Tenn; Mrs. Alta Beaman, of Coleman, Tex, and Miss Bessie Smith, of Los Angeles, Calif. He is also survived by two step-sisters, Mrs. Jennie Algaire and Mrs. Ola Graham, both of Wichita, Kansas.


The body lay in state at the Willis Funeral Home and the funeral services were held Sunday afternoon at 2:30 at the Christian Churh, conducted by his pastor, Rev. C. L Bush. Interment followed in Oak Hill cemetery.

Kerri,
I have just added a hand written obituary that is archived in Carrollton Public Library. Perhaps, the portrait should be arranged to be first.

There are more sibling to find and link.

I can help you with daughter Beulah Smith information as soon as I get in gear.

Jeremiah Able Holt
His middle name is spelled ABEL. It was his grandfather's name. He also could not have fought in the Revolutionary War. It started in 1775 and didn't end until 1783. Jeremiah Abel Holt was born in 1811. He also donated the land on which the town of Holt, Missouri still sits.

Nancy Bates Carter
Keri,

You left me a message pertaining to duplicate records for Nancy Bates Carter on Jan 2 of this year. We had recently moved and I did not respond. However, I do note that the record has been merged and it appears that three descendants have the same memorial numbers that I have in my records. Nancy was born in Halifax County, Virginia, USA, not in Missouri. She came to Missouri with her mother--her father had died in Virginia. So that part of the record needs to be corrected.

Nancy had nine children, the last one dying the year of her death.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do on this record that will help you further. I am sorry for the delay.
