RE: Nancy J. Patton
Nancy J. Patton Find A Grave Memorial# 94730374. Years ago, I was very excited to find the marriage of Sampson Cordell to Nancy Jane Paton (sic) on 29 July 1860 in Cedar County. MO. Cedar County is adjacent to Dade County where my Patton relatives lived. My ggfather, Oliver G. Patton had a sister listed as Nancy J. Patton in the June 1860 census in Dade County, MO. The Cedarville Cem., book (copied as in book): p. 404: "Patton, Nancy J. d. 2 Jun 1868 sis of Joseph A. & John M. Patton;"
Since she was buried as a Patton, she probably never married.
George and Taphenis Patton had 6 children:
Oliver G., Warren, Joseph A., John M., Nancy J. and Martha E. Patton. Martha died on 3 August 1923 in Mt. Vernon, Skagit, Washington. She died without a will, and her only survivors were Oliver Patton's 3 surviving children, which means that none of the others had children that were still alive. (The probate records also indicate that Martha had never married.)

There were other Patton families in Missouri. The 1880 census index shows 1262 people with that spelling, including 23 in Dade county.
You could try looking for Nancy Jane Paton/Patton/Patten, etc. in the 1860 US Federal Census.
There is a family tree on that says that Sampson Cordell married Rebecca Jane Hohimer on 4 August 1873 in Howard, Elk, Kansas. If that is true, it is possible that Nancy Jane (nee Paton) Cordell was alive in the 1870 Census, which you could also check.

Good luck with your search for the family of your 3rd great grandmother Angeline Mahala Cordell.

RE: Laura Ross Blevins Brandt
CaSandra, certainly you flatter me about being a genealogist. :) My project has been listing and adding information about people interred in Park Cemetery in Carthage, MO. more so that doing actual genealogy work. This is an old Civil War town and was also a very profitable lead and zinc mining area in Jasper county, MO. There is a lot of rich history in this area. What I utilize is the local early day newspapers, census information, city directories, death certificates and things that are available to anyone. GenWeb many times will have information. I do have a subscription to and would suggest that you might want to check into doing that. There is quite a lot of information on there about Angeline Cordell and possibly you can contact the contributor that placed it on there. They have a free trial membership for you to try it if you're not already a subscriber.
Regarding the Ross and Cordell families, there is some information on Samp Lawson's page that may help you to find some leads to the people you are looking for. Angeline Cordell was married several times, first to Bert Ross' father and also to Joseph Lawnson, which I believe was her second husband.
Hopefully you'll be able to get some leads with the information from the above pages that will help you in your search.
Finding information on people is sort of like putting pieces of a puzzle together. Once you find enough, the picture comes together.
Best regards,
Carthage, MO.
