RE: Mount (Mt.)Horeb Cemetery listing
Hello Norma,
I have correct Dennis Boulware in the Mt. Horeb Church Cemetery in Minneola, Montgomery, Missouri. The cemetery is set up as Mount Horeb Church Cemetery. I didn't have anything to do with that.

Alvah Brown
You do pose some interesting comments. The only info I have on Alvah's parents is what is recorded on his death record. The informant was Linnie (or l) Masterson, but I have no idea who that is either. I didn't find a death cert for his mother, so don't have any thing to show her maiden name. It would take a lot of research to figure it all out. The Martha Bennett on that marriage record...Could that be Martha Masterson Bennett [if she had been married before]? Or, could Martha Bennett have died and then Lucius md Martha Masterson? Who is the person who provided the info for Alvah's death record? How was he related to the family?
And, as you pointed out... there may be two different Lucius Brown's, both md to a Martha.

How are all the Brown's in this cemetery related to each other? More questions than you can shake a stick at. I am involved in so many projects right now that I really can't take on any more. I remember that one of the Brown's in the cem. is related to my late husband, but don't remember how off the top of my head. It wasn't a direct connection.

I hope you can find answers to some of the questions. If you do, let me know. Maybe I can find time down the road to pitch in on the research.

Cathy Quick
Quick surname
I am trying to research the Quick surname of Montgomery County. My husband's direct ancestor is James Henry Quick who died in Brunswick, Chariton, Missouri on 15 Jan 1856. His family is from Montgomery County and he moved to Chariton County just shortly before his death. Do you know which cemetery the Quick family is buried at in Montgomery County? James' father was Alexander Quick who died in Dec. 1847 in Best's Bottom, Rhineland, Montgomery, Missouri.

Thank you for your help,
Cathy Quick

Dudley Polston

I added the birth date to Dudley's bio.
Also, I do find a Dudley Polston, b. about 1849 listed as a Civil War Soldier in the 49th Mo Infantry. Maybe this is your Dudley? Maybe I read the stone incorrectly and it is the 49th, not the 43rd?

There is also a pension record with the widow as a Kissah Polston, whose spouse was Dudley. As I searched Mo death certs there is a Kiserah Poslton listed that died in Warren Co in 1914. She is widowed and shows that she was born in 1839. The death certificate shows that she is also buried in Macedonia Cemetery, although I did not find a stone for her when I was there.

Here is the link to the death certificate:

Do you think this is your Dudley and his wife?

Thank you for doing so much research on the Loutre Island Cemeteries. Do you know how I could find out for sure which cemetery George is buried in?

On Lou's memorial, I made a mistake on the paragraph about her father's death certificate. It should read, I could not find a death certificate. I'm sorry that I don't any more about this family, wish I could be of more help. Good luck.
