Carol Cummings Thur Dec 5, 2001

The 1880 Federal Census (per the UGC CD-Rom index) shows the CUMMINGS family in Hudson Township, Macon County, MO:

CUMMINGS, Albert, b. 1825, VA;
wife Mary, age 36, b. England;
dau Elmina CUMMINGS age 2 mos.

I believe this Albert CUMMINGS is identical with the Albert CUMMINGS, son of Robert CUMMINGS, who resided in Jasper County, Iowa from 1849 until some time after 1860.

My questions are:
1. Did he die in Macon County; if so, when, and where was he buried?
2. Did Elmina live to adulthood,
3. Did she have any siblings,
4. Are there/were there any descendants living in Macon County?

I would like very much to locate a descendant of this line of the family.

I've "rescued" a WILLIAMS Family Photograph of Tom WILLIAMS taken at the J.A. Cook Studio in Macon, Missouri.

On the back of the photograph the initials "P.M." appear after Tom's name along with the town name "Bevier" and the year "1896". I don't believe this is the year the photograph was taken, more likely taken in 1870's or early 1880's. Tom appears to be in his 40's or 50's at the time.

I'm hoping to find someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned. If you are a member of this family or you know someone who might be, please contact me.

I am trying to research the HUBBLE family in Macon County.

My great great grandmother was Mary Ellen HUBBLE whose parents were David HUBBLE and Evaline ?. She married William BURROUGHS and they lived in Macon County (I think near Atlanta) for a period of time.

They had some of their children in Macon County before moving to Nebraska. I have pictures of their graves sites in Hastings, Nebraska.

The only information I have is from the 1850 census.

David HUBBLE.........age 42.........Born VA
Evaline (wife)....................35...................VA
John (child)........................11...................VA
Farah or Sarah....................7....................MO
Mary Ellen...........................1...................MO

Mary Ellen was my great grandmother and mother of Anna Julia who married William BURROUGHS on September 12, 1867 in Macon County. The lived in Macon County until, at least, 1872. I have a lot of information on the BURROUGHS, but not the Hubbles.

Any leads you could give me would be appreciated.

Thank you.

My grandfather, Carl WEEKS, b. Nov 22 1896 Ardmore, Macon Co, MO., died 1972 in Corpus Christi, TX, used to pitch for the Brown's (?), a minor league, in or around Macon County.

The time frame on the baseball team would have been 1910 to 1917....and I'm not positive that it was the Brown's but I think that's what they were called. From Macon or Atlanta or somewhere nearby...

I can't seem to find any news about it and wondered if you could help me out.

Sandra Stanton Tue Jul 10, 2001

Missouri SUMMERS was born ca. 1858 in Macon County.

She is listed with her parents, George and Martha SUMMERS, on the 1860 census. By the time of the 1870 census for Macon County she is listed living in the home of Alexander WILSON as a 11 year old. What happened to her after this? What happened to her parents? Did she have a middle name?

In the 1880 census for Macon County Alexander WILSON is listed as 82 years old and grandfather living in the home of Nelse and Alice JOHNSON. The age would fit for this Alice to be the Missouri SUMMERS in the 1860 and 1870 census.

Does anyone know if it is the same one?

They had two sons, the first one died when a few days old and second, my dad, was Lester Harlan SUMMERS. He lived till he was 62 years old.

I would like to know Elijah SUMMERS famiy names and if there is any sisters and brothers.

Another thing, he was married a second time to a Goldie.

Hope you can help me. Thanks.

Researching my father, Ermon W. CONDON, who was born in 1910 near Excello, Macon Co.

My grandfather, David Franklin CONDON, inherited the HALLETT farm 1907 from his Aunt Eliza HALLET, which was near Macon and Excello. He worked for Riechel Motors in at least 1912 & 1913, and banked at the State Exchange Bank of Macon.

My father and his brother, Howard, attended Union Grove School (I have Howard's 1918 'perfect attendance' certificate).

I am trying to narrow down some locations before coming to Missouri to search for the HALLETT graves and the old farm location.

Thank you from Estes Park, Colorado

I would like information on Capt. Wm. GRIFFIN, or his oldest son Wm. Griffin who came to California during the gold rush.

My father, also Wm. Griffin, was the son of the Wm. GRIFFIN who came to CA. Other than these facts, I am lost.

I understand there was an article in one of the paper, maybe in 1905. Any information would be very helpful.

Where did Capt. Wm. GRIFFIN come from? Who did he marry as I know he was maried twice?

Who were his parents and where did they come from?

Where can I obtain a copy of the book, "The Early Settlers of Macon Co. and the Lives of the Pioneer?

Thank you for any help.

Looking for information on Brightwell LITTLE, who came to Macon County, MO by 1850 at the age of 23, when he bought 40 acres of land.

He married Margaret POOLE and had 6 children between 1850-1864.

He is shown in the 1850 and 1860 censuses, but completely disappears by 1870 from all census records (in all states).

He was not in the Civil War, and I can find no records of his or his wife's deaths. He apparently went by the first name of Bright. His son, John Perry LITTLE, was born in Macon in 1864 and moved to Shelby County by 1896. This is my line.

Any information on Bright LITTLE would be greatly appreciated.

Ann Bolin Kirkman Fri Mar 30, 2001
Looking for information on Mary EAGLE wife of Jonathan MONTGOMERY. This family came from Wayne Co. OH

They owned a farm in Ten Mile Twp., Macon Co MO beginning 1863 and remaining till he moved into Macon City unable to manage the farm. He died some months later in 1886.

Mary's brother was Dr. T. A. EAGLE. Was Eagle township named after the EAGLE family? Mary died in 1891 at her brother's (Dr. T. A. EAGLE's home).

The MONTGOMERY children were:
William, Isaiah, Samuel (my ggrandfather), Henry, Rudolph, Edward R, and Elliott H.

I am trying to find Samuel's brothers. There was a Dr. W E MONTGOMERY who died in Manhattan, KS and H.A. who lived in Macon and a William E. who lived there too. There were more: Isaiah, Rudolph & Henry.

I think the farm remained in the family for a long time - as a child I remember going to the "Homeplace". My Dad inherited the farm and then deeded it to a cousin with the MONTGOMERY name.

Thank you for any help.

Bill McQuary Sat Mar 24, 2001
I’m seeking information about the family of James Otis McQUARY (b. 1 Dec 1890, Pulaski Co., KY - d. 30 Oct 1960, Centerville, Appanose Co., IA) He may have spelled the surname McQUEARY while he lived in Macon County.

James Otis, known as Otis or J. O., was the son of Clint Christopher Green “Clint” McQUEARY (b. 21 Sep 1855, Pulaski Co., KY - d. 4 Dec 1937, St. Louis Co., MO) and Louise Mary CATRON (b. 9 Mar 1861, Pulaski Co., KY - d. 7 Dec 1947). His parents were married on 20 Sep 1876 in Pulaski Co., KY. They moved to Macon County when James Otis, my grandfather, was 11 years old, about 1901.

Although I don’t know if the entire family moved to Macon County, James Otis had the following siblings when the move was made:

1. Hattie Christian McQUEARY (b. 20 Aug 1877, KY - d. 11 Feb 1933, KY). Hattie married Daniel F. MILLER on 26 Jul 1893.

2. Miranda Dean McQUEARY (b. 25 Oct 1897, Somerset, Pulaski Co., KY - d. 7 Aug 1957, St. Louis, St. Louis Co., MO). Dean married Charles GRAGG, possibly in Macon County.

3. Hiram Sumner McQUARY (b. 30 Mar 1881, Pulaski Co., KY - d. 13 Sep 1942, Dexter, MO). Sumner married Lulu Frances BROYLES (b. 15 May 1886 - d. 23 Oct 1943) on 18 Jun 1902, possibly in Macon County. Note that Sumner adopted a different spelling of his surname than the one his father used.

4. John S. McQUEARY (b. 14 Jan 1883, Pulaski Co., KY - d. 26 Aug 1965, Whittier, CA) John married Mae Bell WATSON (b. 9 May 1891 - d. 23 Oct 1943), possibly in Macon County.

5. William Payton McQUEARY (b. 5 Jun 1885, Somerset, Pulaski Co., KY - d. 16 Dec 1950, Rockford, IL). William PAYTON married Pauline SCHMIZ, possibly in Macon County. 6. Hyde Orland McQUEARY (b. 19 Nov 1886, Plato, KY - d. Unk).

7. Charles Frederick McQUEARY (b. 24 Mar 1889, KY - d. 18 Jan 1947).

8. Thomas Parker McQUEARY (b. 15 Jan 1893, Somerset, Pulaski Co., KY - d. 1 May 1963). Tom married Ethel CONATY on 5 Feb 1913, possibly in Macon County.

9. Wayne Opal McQUEARY (b. 20 Nov 1894, KY - d. 21 Dec 1973. Wayne married and his wife’s given name was Margaret.

James OTIS, my grandfather, married Virgie Elizabeth VARNS (b. 5 Sep 1891, Macon Co., MO - d. 17 Jun 1974, Claremore, Rogers Co., OK) on 5 Sep 1910 in Macon Co., MO. She was the youngest child and only daughter of Charles W. VARNS (1856 - 1958) and Sarah Frances “Fannie” RICHARDSON of Macon, Co., MO, who reportedly eloped on horseback when Fannie was 16 years old. Virgie had five brothers: John, Frank, Clarence Charles , David and Bob.

My grandparents, James OTIS and Vergie Elizabeth had five children who were all born in Macon County:

1. Charles Virgil McQUARY (b. 20 Sep 1911, d. 26 Dec 1999, Pittsburgh, Allegeny Co., PA). Charles Virgil was my father.

2. Ruth Francis McQUARY (b. 18 Feb 1915, d. Mar 1978).

3. James Otis McQUARY Jr. (b. 30 Mar 1918, d. 4 Mar 1960, Cole Co., MO.

4. Warren Harding McQUARY (b, 5 Jun 1920; d. 1 Aug 1981).

5. John Paul McQUARY (b. 25 Aug 1921, still living).

Sometime after John Paul was born my grandparents moved their family to a house just outside of Bethany, Harrison Co., MO. I have a newspaper clipping, from an unknown publication, that includes a photograph of the Redman School, class of 1919-1920. I don’t know whether the Redman School was in Macon or Harrison County MO. However my father is one of the students in the class photo.

The odd thing is that the photo’s caption identifies three other children in the class as McQUARYs: Bonnie Gene, Clair and Lestal. My uncle, John Paul McQUARY has no idea who those children are or whether they are related to our family.

My research indicates that other members of the McQUARY/McQUEARY family moved from Kentucky to Macon Co., MO almost 50 years before my grandfather did. These include Ulysses Simpson Grant McQUARY (1863 - 1940) of Atlanta, Macon Co., MO and his wife Harriet Margaret GRADY (1867 - 1924). They had several children including a daughter, Mollie Claire, who may be identifiable as the “Clair McQUARY” in the Redman School photograph.

Anyone with information about my family while its members resided in Macon County please contact me. Thanks in advance,

In going through a box of old pictures given to me by an aunt, Corene DUCKWORTH, in Macon, MO, I found the following obituary. I have no idea of the name of the paper it was taken from or the date it appeared!


"Mrs. ROBERTSON, 89, Dies at Home Near Huntsville.

Mrs. J. B. ROBERTSON, 89, died at 7 o'clock this morning at her home south of Huntsville.

Mrs. ROBERTSON, the former Miss Marian WALKER, was born in Randolph County on Jan. 21, 1860, and was married about 67 years ago. She spent her entire life in this county. She was a member of Eads Chapel Methodist Church.

She is survived by four children, W.M. ROBERTSON, Cairo, Mrs. G.E. BROWN, Springfield, IL; Mrs. George ALLEN, Huntsville, and Willard ROBERTSON of the home; ten grandchildren; and nine great-grandchildren. Mr. ROBERTSON died July 10, 1940.

The body will be at the home in Huntsville until the funeral hour. Funeral service s will be held at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon at Eads Chapel. Burial will be at Eads Chapel Cemetery.


In Larry SUMPTER's Database of Death's in Randolph Co. I found the following: Marian ROBERTSON 1861-1949, Eads Chapel Cem. James B. ROBERTSON 1856-1942, Eads Chapel Cem. Willard S. ROBERTSON d. Jul 1963, Eads Chapel Cem.

Also in Eads Chapel Cemetery William and Caroline CALDWELL ROBERTSON are buried, are they connected in any way to the proceeding ROBERTSON's? I assume the James B. was Marian's husband and that Willard was her son that was named in her obit.

I believe that G. E. BROWN is George E. BROWN the s/o John Thomas and Mary SUMMERS BROWN. George E. died in Springfield, IL. Is the W.M. ROBERTSON listed in the obit the Willie ROBERTSON who married Susie BROWN d/o John Thomas and Mary SUMMERS BROWN?

In the box of old pictures I found pictures identified on the back as Mrs. Mary & Willard ROBERTSON, another that has compliments of Willie ROBERTSON written on the back and another picture that my aunt identified as Willie ROBERTSON, Susie BROWN's husband.

My great-grandfather, George M. BROWN married Flora (Florida) ROBERTSON and lived in Narrows Twp. of Macon Co. I would like to know if the individuals listed below are related to her. Flora's parents are also buried in Eads Chapel Cemetery.

If you connect with any of the individuals listed here please help me. I would be glad to share my information.

My ancestors resided in Macon, Hudson Twp. and were farmers with a coal mine on the farm. Many family ancestors are buried in Macon at Mt. Olive and Vickory cemeteries. The following is a short account of my ancestry as I know it.

Father's side of family:"
Benedict SMITH-great grandfather
Anna (FITES) SMITH-great grandmother
George E. SMITH-grandfather
Anna (GRIMSHAW) SMITH-grandmother
John W. SMITH-father
Nona M. (LAMBERSON) SMITH-mother

Mother's side of family
John L. LAMBERSON-grandfather-Salt River township, Knox County
Della (HAYS)-grandmother
J. S. HAYS-great grandfather
S. A. HAYS-great grandmother

The family resided in Macon until the 1920's and had several deaths from what they thought was TB. This seemed to have scattered the family mostly westward. I was born in Arizona in 1932.

I have met with a Freeman GRIMSHAW in Macon and spent several hours with him.

If you have any further info on any of the relatives above, I would appreciate it.

Nancy Jane Stapp Tue Feb 20, 2001
My great-great grandfather, Professor D.W. ROBERTS was living in Bevier, Macon County, MO in 1880 according to the census.

His children were:
1. Rachel (who is said to have died as a teenager and is buried in perhaps the Oakwood Cemetery, if there is one named that.
2. Elizabeth,
3. William D,
4. Evan F.,
5. Martha,
6. Jane (Jennie) born 26 March 1875 in Bevier, Macon County, MO.

Professor D.W. ROBERTS was born in Wales, lived in Ohio, and for a little while, Bevier, Macon Co. MO. By 1889 he had moved to Mahaska County, Iowa (Givin, Iowa I believe).

After living in Mahaska County for a while he moved to Polk County, Iowa where he passed away.

I do know that he was quite active in the Welsh Eisteddfods in Iowa and he seemed to well known in many places from family lore.

Here are the only two items that I have about him:

ROBERTs, --Word was received in the city this morning of the death of Professor David ROBERTS, a former well known resident of Oskaloosa. The old gentleman died at the Methodist Hospital of pneumonia, after an illness of only six days. The funeral will take place at Des Moines Sunday.

The wife preceded him to the other side by only a couple months. A family of about six children survive the aged parents. Professor ROBERTS was a native of Wales. He came to this country and for years was engaged in coal mining at the coal camps near the city. He was for years located in the Welsh colony at Givin. In his declining years he gained a livlihood in this city by conducting a retail oil delivery. He and his wife removed to Des Moines about four years ago to be nearer relatives. Professor ROBERTS, as he was known by everyone, was perhaps one of the best known. He was a singing master and chorus director of wide repute and was himself a singer of considerable ability. he had the rare power of interpretation of party and chorus music and his knowledge of direction was little less than remarkable. The old gentleman was in his element in the work of the EISTEDDFOD when it was at its height in this city.

He was one of its staunchest reporters and hardest workers. He has won many large prizes for superior chorus work and he has received unstinted praise from the loftiest critics in the country.

David ROBERTS did a world of good in his time and he merits a rich reward. His death will cause deepest regret among hundreds of Oskaloosa friends. Rev. Lloyd WILLIAMS of this city goes to Des Moines Saturday morning to conduct the funeral and interment.

12 January 1899 David ROBERTS to-day received a copy of the Uruguay News Letter of November 27, 1898 sent him by Col. SWALM at Monte Video. It is the first paper from that country which we have seen that is printed in English, and barring the grammar and spelling, it is a creditable publication. Mr.SWALM, wanting to make sure that Mr. ROBERTS would receive the paper added to the address "the man who sings"

Is there anyone else researching this ROBERTS family?

Thank you for your time and attention to this.

Searching for Mary Ann WILSON.

May have been born in La Plata in May, 1860, may have had a brother named Will. No other family info known.

She married Louis (Franz Heinrich Aloysius) SIEVERS who although born in Germany lived in Macon County at least during the Spring of 1875.

Mary Ann was married by 1877 (I also need marriage info--may have occurred on 19 May 1876/77 in Shelbyville).

They are shown living in Saling, Audrain County during the 1880, 1890, and 1900 censuses before moving to eastern Idaho with their children.

Can you help?

Seeking information on Willard BROWN and wife Malvina.

I have no further information on either of them, other than the fact that I have a photograph of Willard taken in Mojave, CA in 1937 or so. The notation on the back of the photo says that he died in 1937.

I believe that Malvina died in a mental hospital in Clarinda, IA, sometime after 1934. Their daughter, Bertha Frances BROWN, is my paternal grandmother. Bertha was born in Elmer, Macon Co., 6/24/1886, and married Jesse Emmett RICHARDSON ca. 1908, probably in Missouri. They later moved to Des Moines, Iowa, where they lived until their deaths in 1961 and 1966, respectively. Willard and Malvina also had at least two sons, Claude and Jack.

This has been my brick wall for 40 years and I would be thrilled with any information anyone can give me.
