Glenn L. Crawford Wed Aug 30, 2000
My ancestry in Macon county start's in the late 1700's and early 1800's with Rhodam SIMS and Mary STARK my gr gr gr gr gr Grandparent's on one side in there move to Rall's Co. MO from Botetourt, VA.

Their son, William Stark SIMS, married Euphumia PARADISE.

My gr gr gr gr Grandparents on the other side, James CRAWFORD and Jane McCLELLAN, came from Botetourt, VA.

They had a son, Wilkinson CRAWFORD (supposedly found Huck Finn's Cave ((Lore))) He married Nancy SIMS, William and Euphumia's daughter.

Their son Jonathan CRAWFORD, my gr gr grandfather, married Susan Catherine KILLINGER, my gr gr grandmother.

Their son, Jefferson Davis CRAWFORD married Annie GRADY, my gr grandparent's.

Their son Joseph Glenn CRAWFORD married Irene Georgina NELSON, my grandparent's.

Their son an only child, Theadore Joseph CRAWFORD married Florence Norene MORRIS. my parent's.

I think that Irene's mother was Hildur PETERSON. Hildur I think married John Theadore NELSON Both Hildur and John died at an early age and my grandmother was raised by step parent's after Irene died in 1921.

My father was passed from pillar to post but primarily while my grandfather was out grieving the loss of his wife and trying to make a living. At the same time my gr gr grandmother PETERSON was raising my dad.

They were Swedish because all my dad spoke was Swede until he went to school.

I know I have had relatives in Macon for a long time Ima Gene PORTER was one Sophronia Arabelle THOMPSON/JOHNSON (I'm not sure which name it was) were two of them. One being a cousin and the other was a great aunt. It seems that all of the grandmother's except for Nancy SIMS are impossible to find anything about! Nor can I get beyond James CRAWFORD. I think his father was Alexandar but I can't Prove it!

I know that my gr grandmother, Annie GRADY CRAWFORD, died the year I was born 1948. Somewhere in this great migration the CRAWFORD's ended up in Macon Co. I have a 1918 Plat map by Geo. Ogle and Son's showing quite a bit of acreage owned by my grandfather, uncles and cousin's.

My Grandfather sold out to bring Irene to a New Mexico sanitarium for tuberculosis. She died on the way in Clovis New Mexico.

Any one that has an inkling of this story or who my grandmother's step-parent's were or can help me trace the family history and the lost CRAWFORD women and one grandfather please contact me.

Thank you

My Grandfather Robert Ernest COURTNEY was born in Elmer, MO in 1898. His father was William Franklin and mother was Luella Esteline (STONEKING) COURTNEY.

In 1902 his brother Cecil Earl was born there, and in 1904 his sister Minnie Mae, another sister Millie born in 1908, might have been born there as well, but she died at a very young age so hard to tell. Or she might have been born in Macon City as that is where the next sister, Rose Etta was born in 1912, and finialy his last sister, Dorothey Lorraine also was born in Macon City in 1914. I have found this family in Atlanta, MO in 1910 census.

I guess the whole point of this, I'm looking for information on this family along any step of the way, and what the area was like, and what William Franklin might have been doing to support his family. I've heard that Elmer was kind of wild and wooly back then, and that he might have worked on the Rail Road? I know My grandfather did, but in Brunswick, MO according to his SSN application.

Other members of the COURTNEY clan that William Franklin was from, Emmanuel & Elizabeth (WOOD) COURTNEY (father and mother) lived in southern Adair Co. near the county line. His grandparents were Pete and Nancy Ann (WISENBERGER) COURTNEY from Berkeley Co, VA (now Morgan Co. WV). Peter was a farmer and ferryboat operator and died in 1874 crossing the Chariton river that winter in an ice jam. Also there is some PRATHER mixed in with this family as well.

Thanks for your time and good luck on your searches!! Would like to hear from anyone that has crossed paths with any of these families, and I'm willing to share what info I do have on them.

I am looking for any information concerning my grandfather Silas Anthony PATTERSON. Where and when Silas was born? I am also trying to find his father's name.

I do know that he was married in 1885 to Minnie Winkworth KINGSNORTH.

From stories he told to me when I was a young boy, he was born in southern Illinois where his father was a sheriff. He lived most of his life in Macon where he died sometime in the late 1930's I believe.

One other fact I do know is that they lived on Duff St. where I visited often as a young lad.

He ran a men's clothing store in Macon for many years. My father, Don Denham PATTERSON, was born in Macon in 1896.

I would greatly appreciate any help that you might be able to give.

I need help. Family legend tells me that my GGGrandfather, William JAMES, lived out his final days, and died (1867), in Macon Mo. -- I'm seeking confirmation of that.

As the family migrated across the continent from Utica, NY, two of his sons (one of which was my ggrandfather) and a daughter remained in Muscatine Co., Iowa . He and the rest of the children, William Jr, Stephen, John & David apparently moved on as the family has lost all track of them.

He was a farmer, so the statement might mean Macon Co. rather than the city of Macon. I just don't know.

Thanks in advance for any assist.
