Atchison County, Missouri Correspondence Queries
When I travel I look at old photos in antique shops, and if I find a name, I write it down and make note of where I found it.  I went to Ste. Genevieve last weekend and found the following death cards with photographs in a bin in a shop called FIRST SETTLEMENT COUNTRY STORE AND ANTIQUES, 233 Market St, Ste. Genevieve, MO.  In the bin there were two cards labeled as follows:
  • DANIEL GROH, born August 9, 1827, died August 30, 1878.
  • LENA GROH, born March 8, 1828, died May 7, 1901
In a quick research this am, I found that they settled in the Nishnabotna, Atchison County, Missouri area mid 1800's.  Daughters married LANGHENNIG, LAHUE.  If anyone would treasure these photos, they can be purchased at that store.
Could you post these on your site?  Thanks.  Lisa Showers, Springfield, MO
