Parents info. added. Thank You.
|Dolores J. Rush||Sorry, I see My Spelling Mistake|
The correct spelling is Joseph La Barge. I discovered a boat builder named John Pringle who built the Steamboat Arabia that is in the Kansas City, MO museum. A friend shared this website with me from the Kansas State Historical Society p. 295 forward deals with Missouri Steamboats, but Joseph LaBarge is mentioned first on page 281-308 -- https://archive.org/stream/transactionsofka09kans#page/294/mode/2up
St. Louis was a big hub port for steamboat freighting as it was on not only the Mississippi River, but it was close to the connecting rivers of the Missouri, the Illinois and the Ohio Rivers which fed into the Mississippi. That's why I figured that the Nate Grismore that you have was the one I was looking for, but wanted to make sure.
|Dolores J. Rush||Nate Grismore|
Here's what this book (Frontiers of America Series: Steamboats to the West. By Edith McCall. Children's Press, USA., 1959.) says on p.73: "But just then one, braver than the rest, came up to the boiler deck. He had used the stairs at the other end. It was Nate Grismore, the Martha's first engineer."
His captain was Joseph LaForge.
I found a biography on Joseph LaForge that I haven't had a chance to read yet at archive.org called: (History of Early Steamboat Navigation on the Missouri River: Life and Adventures of Joseph La Barge. By Hiram Martin Chittenden. Francis P. Harper, New York, 1903)
So I don't know if it mentions Nate Grismore in it or not.

My pleasure...glad I was able to help a little...
I agree with you...walking in cemeteries can be peaceful. There's a cemetery in Peoria, Illinois, called Springdale that is very picturesque...with its small hills and valleys....and the many different types of trees and wildlife.

This is Vera Endres Stephen's son (same name as father) who was born 1912.
Now I'm confused by site as I thought i had associated the right parents and death info for the father, but you have different parents. Will have to do a little more research.
Find A Grave Memorial# 157583049 was Alfred E I thought was father and wife Retta a second marriage as my Vera and Alfred divorced before 1930 according to census records.

I don't know how to delete it. Sorry. Do you know how? If you do, I'll be happy to delete it. I have not shared the photo on any other site.
This is my great grandmother's family.
|Anna Jaech||RE: Samuel Graham Wilson|
Thanks for the photos. I have always loved lush, plump grass. You sent a masterwork!
The message you sent is blank. I'm thinking you were just letting me know you'd sent them.
