Bio and Links
Bio Photo When I was born, we lived in Caldwell County, MO and now live in Daviess County, MO. I have lived in these two counties all my life, except for 7 years when I was a child and lived near Abilene, KS.
I have always enjoyed sitting at the table at family dinners and hearing the older people tell stories about people and times in the past.
I became involved in looking for my genealogy when I got a computer a few years ago. My grandparents are buried in Caldwell County and some of my great and great-great grandparents as well. Some of the names I am researching are LOONEY, SLOAN, FARR, GREEN on my side and HOOD, GARRISON, STORY, HARRIS on my husband's side.


If you are looking for further information on Caldwell or Daviess County, Missouri ancestors, the following are some of my favorite websites:

Sarah Fitzgerald Brown #23709726
First, thank you for all the Daviess County data you have added! You have photographed many of my ancestors.

Sarah's maiden name is Fitzjarrell not Fitzgerald. Her mother, Catherine Skeen Fitzjarrell,#39353548, is buried in Civil Bend Cemetery.

Is there anyway you could correct the maiden name and link the two?

RE: Luther & Nellie Henry
Thanks for checking. I was able to locate Mettie Henry's daughter who is now in her 90's but have sent the postcards to her.

Luther & Nellie Henry
Hi - I am looking for someone who might be descendant of either Luther & Nellie Henry or their daughter, Mettie M. Henry. I recently ran across several old postcards addressed to Miss Mettie Henry of Rayville, MO from Gertrude Rainwater, one from Charles Rainwater, one from Alice, one from Bonnie Simmons of Warrensburg, MO, one from Ethel Wilkerson and one from Clarence. All dated around 1912-1914. They are short but sweet notes and I would love to send them bac to a family member (no charge) - they just need to be treasured. Please let me know if there is anyone I could email or contact. Thanks. Should you have any questions don't hesitate to call: 317-489-1613 (Fishers, Indiana). My family has always saved postcards for years but I have no idea how these ended up in 'the shoebox'. Thanks, Linda (

Thank you, and yes you are correct. The Lena I was looking for is not Lena Farr.

RE: Amil Stitt
sounds good. I made this memorial not knowing that and I transfered it to #48573475 Shirley Ann Miller. I have been helping her out on her Stitt Family trying to locate Emanuel Stitts Parents. She told me his brother was Amil. So I don't know if she would want you to transfer to her or not. Or she could delete the memorial I made for her. Sorry for the mix up.
