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:

This morning I shared a childhood photo. I believe the photos should be rearranged.

Thank you for your contributions.

Bradley "Jay" Strine #75340193

Hi Caryn,

The only info I could come up with as far as relatives mentioned is a 2003 US Public Record of Billy Joe "Bill" Strine and wife Lynda with "possible relatives" Anita J Strine Poirier, Bardley (should be Bradley) Jay Strine, Bradly A Strine, Carla Sue Anderson, James L Strine, Lynda Sue Strine, Sarah Strine, Vennas Rose Strine, Wilbur O Strine.

So it makes sense that Uncle "Jay" mentioned in Bradley Allen Strine's obituary is more than likely Bradley Jay Strine.

Records are few and far between for folks after 1940.

Thanks for your help!

Caryn, I will check on that information and if I come up with anything and/or can verify what you've given me, I will let you know!

Thanks so much for your help!
