Melissa E. Carder
Hi Jeri - I don't have much on the Carder line, as it is not my main line which is Clay. I have Melissa born about 1826 Missouri, married John A. Williams Sept 28 1844, Missouri. John was born about 1822 Virginia [from 1860 census], but stone has 1820-1865. They were in Liberty Township, St. Francois Co MO 1850, 1860. Here is a 1860 listing: John A Williams 38
Melissa E Williams 34
William L Williams 13
Mary A Williams 11
Amanda J Williams 9
Margaret Williams 7
George P Williams 5
Martha Williams 18
John died 1865, buried Clay Cemetery. Melissa married an Edward Dugal after his death. Her parents: George W. Carder, Margaret Muse Clay. Margaret born Oct 17 1804 Grainger Co TN. George and Margaret appeared 1840 Pendleton, St. Francois, MO, 1850 and 1860 St. Francois Co MO. In the Jack Clay document: "George W. Carder died Nov 3 1860 in his 77th year, so he was born about 1783." From document of Jack Clay:
"Probate of George Carder in Nov. 1860 list the following heirs: Melissa E. Williams, wife of John A. Williams, Mapsadore A. Carder, Margaret E. Carder, and Amaziah J. Carder. And that George Carder died without leaving a will."

Children Julia Ann had died. Cooper had died. They are buried Clay Cemetery with father George. I think Margaret Muse Clay married George W. Carder about 1823. I have no exact marr record for them.

RE: Clay Cemetery Williams
Hi Jeri: I visited the Clay Cemetery in Doe Run, Missouri in 2006. At that time I was living in North Carolina, but now I live in Minnesota. It made me sad to see my computer photos with me and Jack W. Clay in them at the cemetery. Jack just passed away at end of April at age 90, and I just learned of it yesterday. He was my main source in Farmington, MO for my Clay line. I was not interested in Williams at that time, so did not complete the John A. Williams / Melissa E. Carder family, but I have Francis Ann Williams born about 1852, died Dec 12 1863 in my database. No other children. I have Melissa's line [parents, etc.] if you need it. I viewed the 1860 census you mentioned and I see no Francis, so I cannot answer your question. I cannot verify death year as 1863. The bottom of the photo I have on my computer has "aged" on one line and 11 yr 6(?)da on bottom line. I took the photos and uploaded them, but the submitter of memorials was Alton Loveless. I can send you my computer photos if you want to look closer at them. I might be able to find an old Clay file with notes from 2006, but that would take some time. Jack and I found all cemetery stones we could that day we visited the Clay Cemetery.

Geraldine Middaugh
Resthaven is a GIGANTIC cemetery and it works best if you can request a plot location from the funeral home.

Also, I did a quick obit search and found that Geraldine had a death notice in the name of Geraldine Crawford. I found an obit for Robert Ross Crawford that mentions a wife Geraldine and Middaugh stepsons. I added a memorial for Robert and linked it to your Geraldine memorial. Let me know if you would like the memorial transferred to you.
