John Peyton Wilcox
Family stories have it that John's father, William L. Wilcox was bushwacked by Confederate guerillas in 1864. Do you have information on John's family. His sister Susan A. Wilcox Sanders Kimball is my great grandmother. I have lots of information on her line.

Garrett, Thank you for all the photos of the Bass Family Markers. I would have not been able to acquire these myself due to distance and health. Thank you for allowing me to continue with my family history. Vickie

Cowan Cemetery
Just wondering if you had a chance to clean up the Cowan cemetery? My mother was Claris Jean Cowan daughter of James Ira Cowan. They used to live on the old Cowan place when she was little and went to the Edgar Springs school for a while. We would like to fix up the cemetery and would appreciate any help. We live in Salem, MO. We have a book written by Mildred Cowan Siever that's the Cowan/Lenox and next of Kin. Mildred was the daughter of Travis James and Martha. She was my grandfather's aunt. It's very detailed going back to William Cowan, the Immigrant born in Scotland. It is very detailed if anyone is looking for information. We are working on editing gravesites listed and hopefully will have some pictures to contribute.

RE: Phagan cem. and Hico cem.
I can certainly help you with both cemeteries. Phagan is not too far away and I can make you a map to locate it. The only obstacle is being able to find somebody home at the house which is located near it. Many times I have drove by and the gate is locked, so somebody would have to be home to visit the cemetery. Hico is in Siloam Springs and is not hard to find either. However, the cemetery was either damaged or vandalized at one time and the stones were rearranged and so they do not mark the original graves. Send me an email to: I will be more than happy to send maps to these cemeteries.

*****The first family by the name of DeWeese to come to this country wasGarrett Hendricks deWees and his wife, Zytian,who sailed from Freesland, Holland, about the year 1689, landed in NewYork, and a few months later settled in Germantown, Pa.His ancestor is believed to have been Jan Pietre deWees, born 1563 inDortracht, Holland, the only son of French Huguenotparents who died when he was very young. Jan Pietre was adopted by afamily who gave him the name of de wees, which means "orphan",thus originating the name of de Wees or later Dewees and Deweese.

RE: Stewart or Steward Mallow of Texas
Garrett, my record shows he died Oct 13, 1867 and is buried at the Orenduff Cemetery in Collin County TX. He was last on the 1860 census. I have quite a lot of Mallow information that I've accumulated over the years. If you would like to email me and let me know your focus, I'd be happy to go through my information and see if there's something that would be helpful to you.

This is a link to my blog where I mention Stewart Dickey Mallow who married Jerusha Heffington. This was the Mallow Cemetery in Virginia. I would like to see any pictures of articles you might have about the Mallows. Thank you.

The other memorial has Vashti buried at Smith Cemetery. And she is linked to her parents. She has her maiden name. And she is linked to her children. It is #64847028

RE: Vashti Wade
I do not know if they have a source or not. But findagrave rules are that a person should have only one memorial. Since your memorial was created second, it would be the one removed if they were merged. So I guess if you have information with a source on your memorial, findagrave can transfer that to the first memorial. :)

RE: Sarah Ann Garrett
Sorry if I have already asked you about this, but I have asked a lot of people and sometimes forget who I have asked.

Are you related to Sarah Ann Garrett (b. 1831), 2nd wife of Paul Joseph DeClue (Duclos)?

Sarah Ann Garret was the mother of George DeClue (m. to Lizzie Charboneau), who raised my dad, Louis Earl DeClue. George was Dad's grandpa. They lived in Richwoods, Missouri.

Dad never mentioned Sarah Garret as he was born 6 years after she died. What I have on her is from the internet, mainly Ancestry and links from it.

I have so many questions about her because the info I have does not make sense to me, especially (1) how she can be the daughter of John Garret who supposedly died at Big Pine River in Pulaski Co. in 1828, she was born 3 years later and in Aptus as stated on her death certifiicate. (2) It also does not make sense that Sarah's mother Mahala was married to Garret in 1816 but Elizabeth and Sarah were not born until the 1830s. I am wondering if there were either 2 Mahalas or 2 Sarahs that are being confused. (3) I also wonder if the 17 year old Sallie, noted as a male on the 1850 census of Johnsown Twp., Washington Co., Missourie with Mahala and William Jackson and their children together is actually our Sarah Ann Garrett DeClue.

Thanks for any insight and again, sorry if this has been aske of you by me before.

RE: Susanna Brown Lenox
Garrett, my information on this family stops at Wilson Lenox. I haven't gone back any further than that, but in looking online, it seems that his parents were William Lenox and Mary Babb Wilson and he had two brothers, Hamilton and David Taylor Lenox, is that correct?

I also just discovered a book called "Cowan/Lenox, And Next of Kin" by Mildred C. Siever, published in 1976. You can look up the title at and see if it's available at a library near you.

Also, the State Historical Society of Missouri

has a searchable online newspaper collection as well as collections on birth, death, land, and military records; many of which are online but they also have much more available on site at their campuses at Columbia, Cape Girardeau, K.C., Rolla, Springfield, and St. Louis.

RE: Sarah Ann Garrett
Yes, Very true. I have been trying to cross check information I see on Ancestry with notes from my dad and other family members and it is quite difficult to pin anything down as accurate--even on a census; but it is good fun and a lot more interesting than watching a historical fiction movie.

My family tree is quite extensive for my DeClue line and if you have any interest in seeing it at any pint, let me know and I will send you an invitation. I keep it private now because it seems otherwise, every communication sent to anyone through Ancestry is posted on the internet and viewable by the world. Some contacts I have made with distant cousins containing our addresses should we wish to meet ended up on the internet linked to the name of the common ancestor we were communicating about. The full message was posted on the internet and that was a disturbing privacy issue to me.

Cheers and happy ancestor research

RE: Sarah Ann Garrett
Hello, I read the article you mentioned about a year ago and again several months ago and found it very intriguing--all this history is better than watching a historical fiction movie. I wish there were a time machine to see what their daily lives were really like. My dad told me a lot about life in Richwoods in his day (b. 1916) and it was probably not much different in the century previous to that because the grandparents he lived with (George DeClue and Lizzie Charboneau) had no running water and no electricity and lived in a log house. From his grandma, Dad learned to spin wool and had to knit his own mittens besides working in the fields and taking care of the farm animals and digging tiff to sell to the mining company along side his aunts uncles and grandparents. He went to a 2-room school house there.

The DeClues are not difficult to trace, but the Garretts are a total mystery.

RE: Sarah Ann Garrett
Paul Joseph DeClue (orig. Duclos) was b. 22 Mar 1822 in Old Mines, MO, to Alexandre Duclos and Julia Boyer.

Paul married in Old Mines1st Marie Louise Boyer b. 1824. They had 2 children, Paul Stephen b. 1844-1908 and John Alexander b. 1846-1924. Marie Louise died 1849.

Paul Joseph married 2nd Sarah Ann Garrett 12 July 1851 in Washington County (no township listed on marriage record) by Justice of the Peace. Sarah raised Paul's boys along with their own children William Paul 1851-1925, Martha Ann 1855-1925, Mary Jane 1857-1935, Joseph Paul 1859-1915, George 1860-1945, Richard 1862-?, Thomas Lafayette, 1864-?, Godfrey Phillip 1865-1942, Sarah Catherine 1967-1953, Julia E 1871-?, Stephen Eli 1872-1967. There was 1 more I can find no record of.

Sarah and Paul are listed on several censues in Johnson Twp., Washington Co., and she is on several with the children, but without him after he died. Paul's sons from 1st wife are neighbors to Sarah on some of these censuses and were close with their step-mother and half-siblings.

Paul DeClue and Sarah Garrett DeClue's son George raised my father, Louis Earl DeClue b. Dec 1916 on a farm in Richwoods, MO to which I have been.

Sarah is buried 1910 in Old Mines Baptist Cemetery. I do not have info on Paul's burial 1872.

The Sarah married to Francois Duclos (Francis DeClue)(Francis is Paul Joseph's brother.) was Sarah Jackson, daughter of William Jackson and Jinnee Sallee, Jackson's 2nd wife. William Jackson's 3rd wife was Mahala (Hamilton) Garrett, mother of Sarah Ann Garrett b. 1831. Sarah Jackson and Sarah Garrett, step sisters, married Francis DeClue and Paul Joseph DeClue, brothers.

Sarah Ann Garrett
Hello, I was very excited to see your Find A Grave entry here for Sarah Ann Garrett because I have found nothing on her except several censuses and a death certificate. I am puzzled by the bio indicating she was married to Francis DeClue. All census records I find indicate Sarah was 2nd wife of Paul Joseph DeClue. They had George DeClue who married Lizzie Charboneau. George and Lizzie raised my father, Louis DeClue. Sarah is such a mystery. The Death Certificate available online and on Ancestry shows her married to Paul DeClue and that she was born in Aptus (near Old Mines) Missouri instead of KY, but the informant was a grandson who could have been mistaken about the location. If you have any info on Sarah or can clear this up I would be so grateful.

Thanks, Donna DeClue Galvan

Hi Garrett, I don't have any photos yet. I would love the stories you have though. Anything I can add to my pile would be good. Just started with the Crockett family. It's my husband's mom's side.

RE: David Crockett of Arkansas
Yes, as I was told by my mother-in-law (I"m married into the Crockett/Simoneau family)David Amos was missing a leg. The Durmon name has come up but my mother-in-law was always told that she was related to THE Davy Crockett. Not sure who David Amos's grand father really was.
