Thank you for the time you spent on this Memorial. Margaret Handley was my 3rd cousin 5x removed. Thanks again for your research and energy.

That was a VERY difficult time to be living in Missouri... there were a lot of disputes and killing between neighbors who were for or against seceding for the Civil War. For more info, check out "Bleeding Kansas" and also read about the Raiders.

|EveyBl||Park in Missouri, not Kansas :-)|
Okay, I went back and checked my records to make sure about when/where your Francis Marion had gone when he headed further west. I remembered at least one of his children had been born in Kansas or Missouri, and I remembered that your Francis Marion had headed west earlier than the family of Henry Thomas. It looks like F.M. headed over with the uncles to Missouri. His son, Daniel Turney Park, was born there in 1867. But then, F.M. went to Iowa rather than remaining in Missouri or moving up to Kansas with some of the other relatives.

|EveyBl||Francis Marion Park (ours and also yours)|
Hi, I was just thinking about something today... When once more reading the biography I have placed on our Francis Marion Park, it struck me that yours had also traveled to Kansas for a short time. The difference is that ours stayed in Kansas (strictly due to poorly timing their attempted return to Illinois!) and yours made it back "home". I would guess their time in Kansas was similar to the earliest days of our family there... enduring prairie fires, grasshoppers and much much worse. Do you have any details of their travels?

|EveyBl||Elza and Mary Park|
Hi, wanted to give you a heads up... it looks like we've located Mary, Henry Thomas and Francis Marion on the 1840 Census. Check out the updated memorial for Mary. It helps narrow down the date of death for Elza too. :-)

I'm trying to find the Joseph Jesse Teter, who was married to Lenora D. (Hillyard) Teter- Find A Grave Memorial# 120568263
Do you know who he is, maybe his date of birth & death, so that I can add him to Lenora's family tree?

|Laurel Zortman||William Cage|
I noticed the note you placed about your great grand Aunt Elizabeth Hale who married William Cage. It appears that your Elizabeth was his third wife. His first wife was also named Elizabeth (my ancestor). I am trying to find information about your ancestor--birth year, their marriage year, children from previous marriage, children from their marriage (if any), and the name of her first husband. I just want to clean up my records. Thanks so much!
|Dave Deatherage||Col Thomas Poage headstoe inscription|
We may have exchanged messages on another website in the past - if so, please excuse my repetition.
My gr grandfather and one of his brothers served under Col. Poage in the 50th Virginia Infantry in 1861-62. I have visited Col. Poage's grave at Newbern Cemetery and took some photos.
There is a fairly long inscription in Poage's headstone but it's very weather worn and hard to read; I've not been able to decipher it - would you know the complete text of the inscription?
