The following undated and unsigned one page family history by Grace Herbert (Skinner) Bozarth, wife of Morey Bozarth (Abner's grandson), with a note by Azalene Bozarth Maiers, the daughter of Morey and Grace, was recieved by VirJean Potter Bozarth in January 1975:
Abner Bozarth - called "Bud" - was a farmer, born in Lewis Co., where he lived his entire life - He and his wife are buried in the Riverview Cemetery in La Grange, Missouri. (Children were) Bernard, James, Lyndel, Althea Owens, and Cathy (Kate) who died young, unmarried - Bernard and James had no nick-names and "Red" Bozarth was the nick name of Reason, a brother of Abner's, also the name of their father. James is buried in Hannibal, Missouri; the others listed are all buried in Riverview Cemetery in LaGrange. Benjamin was another brother. Abner, Reason and Benjamin lived on adjoining farms their entire lives, on ground inherited from their father. This ground was originally land granted to John Bozarth, the first permanent white settler, and was part of Marion County. Later the 1st Lewis County Court was held at the log cabin on John Bozarth's farm.
