|Bio and Links|
Being the grand-daughter of a Sexton who was born in Cainsville, Missouri, I started researching the family tree; how addictive this has become. It is like a big Suduku puzzle that needs the pieces put together. The web is an amazing place and I have been able to locate a lot of information on the family. However, at this time it seems I have more bodies than burials. Our family looks more like a roaming tribe of Gypsies that tend to pop up in some of the most unlikely of spots. Sometimes I wonder what they were thinking and what drove them to leave one place for another. For my grandparent it was the dust bowl era and the hope for a new start which carried the family farther west.|
I have received a lot of help from others on the web in answering questions that come up along the way with my research. At this point I have over thirty-three hundred past and present relatives accounted for. Finding an ancestor to put in the tree is a very rewarding thing. I have quite a bit to go and I feel more connected in knowing where my family came from and how we are tied together.

|ColeCharb||Grant Essig Murder|
I apologize that I'm a year late, but I can answer a question that you asked me.
My great-great-great grandfather was Isaac Van Vacter. He married Minnie Agnes Covey. Her second husband was Charlie Reeves.
Isaac did kill Grant Essig who was married to Minnie's sister, a Covey.
Isaac and Grant were brother-in-laws.
Let me know if you need any other information.
I'm curious as two which book exactly you're referring to as I would like to know more about the incident.

If you want to send me the link to her obit, I will link it to the memorial. https://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=171918

I'm sorry, I do not. You might want to do a search for their marriage on the Jackson county, MO website if it was in KC
Hi, I apologize for taking so long to get back with you. I transferred Carl and Paul and the wives to you. I have 2 more Fern and William, if you would like to manage them let me know.

My main connection (I have many others) to the Sexton family from Montgomery (now Grayson) County, Virginia is with Hannah Morgan, married to Isaac Sexton, son of William Sexton and Leah Free. Hannah is a sister to my 3rd G-Grandmother Permelia Morgan Hart.
The Sexton and Hart along with a whole bunch of other kin folks all traveled together from Virginia to Knox (now Whitley) County, Kentucky, Indiana, Missouri and points beyond.
I would be more then happy to send you my family files.
Your distant Cousin

Thanks so much for the article. I have included it on his bio page.
|Cathy (Nimerichter) Smith||Ira Sexton|
I am looking for someone that had emailed me regarding Ira Sexton. It had been quite some time ago and the person was requesting any information or articles I had regarding the fact that he was the first person hung in Mercer County, Missouri. Was that you by chance?
Did you check with the lady who added the "unknown" husband to Cheryl's site? I think she's got the wrong wife for the man she linked.
I have no idea who these people are, so the links are nothing I have added. Check her out, if you haven't already done so.

I noticed you have updates on Edward and Ethel Rankin. Do you have their Missouri cert. of death? If no, I have access to them. Thanks Vickie
|Jacki Bierma||DeLone Liston|
I have added the obit to his memorial. Thanks for sending it.
