Researching Lewis WALTERS and his wife Elizabeth (STACY) WALTERS.

They left Pulaski / Russell County KY about 1835 and came to Macon Co., MO.

Lewis WALTERS mother was Mary "Polly" HARDGROVE WALTERS Sneed. Polly's husband, Richard WALTERS, died in 1815 in Pulaski Co., KY, so she was widowed with three children. The following year she married a Mr. John SNEED.

In the mid-1830's, she and John SNEED and part of their "blended" family came to Macon County, MO. Polly had another son named Linzey WALTERS who remained in KY when his brother Lewis and mother and step-father all moved to Macon Co., MO.

I descend directly from Linzey WALTERS, the brother who remained in KY. I don't know specifically what part of Macon County they settled in. Polly died 1861 and is buried in the SNEED - JOHNSON cemetery (I think west of Bevier). If you have any other questions ... just let me know.

Thanks again for any help?

I found the family in Macon County, Missouri, 1850 52nd District, 1860 and 1870 Russell Tsp., 1880 in Callao.

Joseph BURK (BURKE) married Mary Ann Elizabeth ROBINSON 1840 in Sangamon County, Illinois.

Mary Ann ROBINSON's father, James ROBINSON, and mother, Martha CROWDER ROBINSON, moved over from Sangamon County to Macon and Linn Counties, Missouri all at the same time - ca 1842.

Joseph BURK is mentioned as a carpenter in Lingo Twp. and as having come to Macon County 1842 in the Macon County - Patrons of Atlas of 1875.

I have no idea where he and his wife are buried or when they died. They are listed as living in Callao with their 14 year old son, Sidwell in the 1880 census and that is the last date I have for them.

Can you help?

I am looking for heirs or information on a William HAMMACK/HAMMOCK of Macon County.

He was involved in logging, operated a sawmill off the river and a school off of Hwy P. I believe that he was in Macon County MO from late 1880s to 1930s or 1940s.

This is all I know first hand. As some of the older people I have already talked to seem to indicate that he was a prominant citizen.

I was able to talk to another person who gave me some names that she thinks may be relatives of William HAMMOCK.

Fannie M & J H HARLAN
Sarah M & George W CRAVENS

I am searching for the family of Bruce MASON who was in the area of Callao, Macon Co., MO during the 1950's. At that time he was a truck driver.

We believe he had family in the Callao and Salisbury, Chariton Co., MO areas. We don't know a birth date or death for him or even if he is dead. We only know that he would, probably be, in his sixties or older in present time.

This query is being sent because Bruce MASON had a son that he didn't know about. This son has died and the family is searching for medical information about the family.

Any response sent to me will be held in strict confidence. Your time and consideration is greatly appreciated.

Georges Brennet Fri Aug 13, 2004

In search of the connection between the European and the North-American BRENNET families

The story starts with documents from 1520 in a tiny town in Belgium : Marbais. One soldier joins the German-Austrian Empire army in 1620 : Jean BRENNET (His family signs a deed to preserve one of the estates for when he returns)

He probably settles in Germany (Prussia-Poland), from where the 18th and 19th century settlers emigrate to the USA.

The first Documented fact in the USA is Corporal Benjamin BRENNET, in Captain John T. Chunn’s company, Kentucky Infantry, commanded by Colonel John Miller. (Kentucky war)

Also Banner BRENNET was an Indiana Farmer in 1850 (Benton , Monroe Co), age 63.

They might have been brothers…

My research is nationwide.

My Macon Co. research is about Ben BRENNET and his wife Mary, living in Bevier in 1920 (According to the 1920 Census). He was an English immigrant.

Did they have children or other family members ?

Thanks in advance for any bit of information!

Connie Beck Sat Aug 7, 2004

I would love to find out more about one of my dead relives.

Lucy LAWRENCE never married as far as I know. She came to visit my husband's relative, Alice LAWRENCE who m. Thomas OLESON, of Taylor and Adams Co., Iowa. Alice was born in Illinois. I think that Alice and Lucy had fathers who were brothers.

We think that Lucy had a bother, Harvey, and a sister, Louise. Because I haven't found her in a census, I wonder if Louise wasn't her mother. I would imagine that Lucy lived from about l870 to about l930. My husband's uncle said that Lucy lived in Macon Co., Missouri.

Could someone give me some information about her, such as her parents or siblings' names? her date of birth? anything???

William M. "Bill" SMITH b.02/22/1857 married to "Molly" ? but I think this was a nickname. I don't have any proof otherwise of this, but I can't seem to find her listed in any census by the name of Molly.

William and Molly had at least 2 children:

1) George W. SMITH b. 06/24/1882 in Macon County, Mo.
2) Laura Etta SMITH b. 11/02/1883, also of Macon County, Mo.

William had at least one sister:

Anna "Annie" SMITH, unknown birth
Spouse: William O. MAGRUDER
married: 05/18/1873 in Macon County, Mo.

My connection is through Laura SMITH. She was my gr-grandmother. The family moved to Oklahoma sometime in or around 1893, where she married O.E. SARGENT.

Anna and William O. MAGRUDER also moved to Oklahoma.

I am looking for other siblings, dates. etc. of William M. SMITH and his parents if possible.

Thank You. Any help is greatly appreciated.

It was rumored he went to California and upon his return his wife wouldn't move with him. His wife's name was Nancy Emily Elliott.

His parents were born in New York(father) and Ohio(mother). Her parents were born in South Carolina(father) and Indiana(mother).

Dr. George was born in Indiana and Nancy Emily Taylor in Missouri.

Joyce Nash-Wafford Sat May 29, 2004

I have just gotten information from a cousin's elderly Aunt, that I can find some of my NASH family in Macon County, Missouri.

This is the first that I have ever heard of this county. She says that a lot of our NASH family lived in Macon County and that there are quite a few of them buried there.

Some of my family names are as follows:

John W. "Jackson" NASH born Kentucky 1800-1815
Hannah NASH wife born Virginia 1808-1820
Daniel NASH 1838 Illinois or Indiana
Jeremiah "Jerry" NASH 1840 Illinois
Henry NASH born 1846 Missouri
Thomas NASH born 1846 Missouri
Martha NASH born 1849 Missouri
Amanda NASH born 1850 Missouri
Johnson NASH born 1852 Missouri
John Wesley NASH, Sr. born 1854 Missouri
Clinton NASH born 1856 Missouri
William Riley NASH born 1856 Missouri
Marvin Lee NASH born 1861 Missouri

Amanda NASH married Claiborne NASH born 1835 in Illinois. His parents were William NASH and Louvina (maiden name unknown). I have found Louvina NASH in Richland County, Illinois in 1847, married to second husband, Richard M. Pierce. Evidently William NASH died sometime after 1838 but before 1847. Since William and Louvina NASH had five children, (I believe all were born in Richland County, Illinois area), and I assume that William died in that area. These children are:

Henry NASH born 1827
Elizabeth NASH born 1832
Claiborne "Clabe" NASH born 1835 Illinois
James NASH born 1837 Illinois
Mary NASH born 1838 Illinois

Does anyone in Macon County, Missouri, know of any NASH families in the area, 1870 to present, that may be family members? I am sorry I have no idea of any first names of these family members.

Thank you for any help or suggestions on where I may start.

Carolyn Steele Sat May 15, 2004

The ELLIS family appear to have came from Casey Co., KY to Macon Co., MO about 1838-1840.

The 1860 census shows them living in the Narrows Township. Isaac ELLIS married Eliza A _____ probably in Macon. Their oldest child was Martha Jane ELLIS who married Nathan FLANAGAN.

Does anyone have record of the marriage of Isaac ELLIS or his daughter Martha Jane ELLIS? Also, does anyone have the maiden name of Eliza A?

Thanks for any information.
