Margaret - both born in MO. This is not a direct line of mine, but am trying
to find maiden name of Margaret. She is a sister to wife of Seaman McCLEERY,
believed to have died about 1906 (They are shown 1900 census Newton Co.)
In 1910 their son Clarence is living with this Vance family. Family info
says he was sent to live with an Aunt in Granby after death of his mother.
Have been unable to find marriage for either Wm and Margaret Vance or Seaman
and wife. A son of Wm and Margaret married a cousin of Seaman's in Newton
Co in 1906 (Colin Vance/Lizzie McCleery). Any help greatly appreciated.

Isham (Isom) EDWARDS:dob January 22, 1824, Surry County, NC;dod
September 5, 1905; JOPLIN, MISSOURI. Isham was buried in the PEACE CEMETERY
just north of Joplin. The Cemetery has a beautiful entry, but has been
left to ruin. Many of the stones have been knocked over and broken; there
is a deer hunter's tree blind right in the middle of the cemetery. We searched
but could not find where my husband's gg grandfather's grave was located.
Besides feeling that something needs to be done about the desecration of
such a lovely spot, we would like any information anyone might have about
ISHAM. We know that he and his wife, NANCY EMILINE WILES EDWARDS
came to Benton Co., Arkansas, in 1858 from NC. NANCY is buried in Decatur,
AR, and we are not sure why ISHAM was in JOPLIN. Any help will be greatly
appreciated. We do have a little bit of info on Isham and Nancy's children
that we would love to share, but feel we have lots to learn.

My husband's grandfather Jesse George LOGHRY died in Wentworth,
Mo. in 1910. We cannot find where he is buried, nor can we find an obituary
for him in the newspapers of the area. On the 1910 census he is with spouse
Flora Ethel DYE and three children. Census taken in June; he d.
Oct. 10, 1910 of typhoid. John Herman ( a friend?) went to Pierce
city for a trunk wagon from the central livery stable, then took the body
to John Taylors furniture store for the embalming. The receipt for everything
shows that he was buried "near Bethel". His Aunt Rachel SHAFER lived
in Sarcoxie outskirts close to the Newton County line. Apparently his wife
took the three children and went back to Gravette, AR to live with her
mother in law. We are of the mind that there is no tombstone for Jesse
George LOGHRY bur. somewhere "near Bethel". The newspapers there
said there were no copies of anything from 1910 so we cannot find an obituary
for him, and the search goes on for his burial place. Any information would
be very appreciated. All information about him has had to be pulled from
the rocks as I canot find a birth record for him either. He apparently
was born in Oklahoma as he states on the census that he was born there.
We at first thought that he was living in Lawrence Co. but as we drove
thru there tonight, I could see he was in Newton Co. and, so the search
goes on.....Jo Ann Loghry

Daniel LEE, Sr. was b. 9 Feb 1785 in NC and was in TN by 1811
(still don't know the county). He left TN between 1815 and 1820 and went
to AL. He left AL between 1822 and 1825 and moved to Lawrence Co., MO.
His grandson, Daniel Fields LEE married Lyda Jane DAUGHTERY
27 Jan 1867 in Newton Co., MO. I have Lyda Jane DAUGHTERY's death
certificate and it says her father was John DAUGHTERY, b. in IN.
My grandmother told me that it was family lore that John DAUGHTERY
wasn't really Lyda's father and that he had married Lyda's mother, Mary
b. abt 1826 in SC, after Lyda's father had died. Since Lyda Jane was born
25 Aug 1846 in IN, I believe my grandmother was correct since John DAUGHTERY
and Mary ERVIN married 17 Oct 1847 in Newton Co., MO. This was 14
months after Lyda was born in IN. I believe that Lyda had a brother/half
brother named William
DAUGHTERY. Any information or clues to the
above families would certainly be appreciated!

BRANICK; DYER; LOWE; PEASE - My mother's maiden name was BRANICK.
Her father, Maurice Albert BRANICK was born in Newton County. I
do not know his father's name but he owned land that is now part of Crowder
Junior College. M.A. BRANICK was known as Abe. He was born in 1905
or 1906 and still has relatives in Neosho where he went to high school.
I do not know his mother's maiden name. My mother's mother was born in
or around Stella, Mo. which I guess is in Newton County because it is so
close to Neosho. Grandmother's name was Ada Alta DYER and she was
born in 1905. Her father owned a farm and a store in Stella. She was the
sixth of seven children and the last to die. She taught in the late 1920's
at Blue Spring School which was near the Branick property. Both the DYERS
and the BRANICKS were Baptist. The names LOWE and PEASE

MOORE, PEARSON 1870-1900 Granby & Wanda, NEWTON CO, MO 1870
Census at Granby lists Charles Nathan MOORE, wife Susan Jane (Janie),
son Charles N. MOORE b. 1862; oldest daughter 'Janie' (aka Jennie
Ann) b. 10 Oct 1866 in Mo; In this census Charles Nathan MOORE b.1834
in MO, was a miner, wife Susan Jane/Janie b. abt 1839 was 'keeping house'.
In 1880 Granby census C.N. MOORE, police-municipal, was listed along
with wife and two oldest children shown in 1870 census plus Sarah E. MOORE
b.1868 Mo; N.K. MOORE (female) b.1872 MO; Martha MOORE b.1874
MO and youngest & last child, William H. MOORE b. MO Nov 1879.
In July 1885 Jennie Ann MOORE married Thomas Everett PEARSON,
by that date she told her children, she 'was an orphan girl, with only
her older brother Charlie to look after her and their baby brother William'...We
have no idea what happened to Charles Nathan, Susan Jane, Sarah, N.K. and
Martha between 1880 & 1885, we do know that Charles Nathan was living
in 1882/early 1883 from articles in the Neosho newspaper...cannot find
any cemetery records listing their graves. Any clue on this family would
be very,very much appreciated. We estimate the date of Charles Nathan's
& Susan Jane Moore's marriage at abt 1861, due to the loss of Newton
Marriage BK A, we have never found a record of it, and have searched the
entire state of MO at the State Archives at Jefferson City.
In 1900 census of Granby Charlie MOORE is head of household
and has married a widow with two children, Mary Cameron MOORE and
Cora and Fred CAMERON. William MOORE is living with them,
both Charlie & William were 'miners'.
PEARSON: In 1873/4 Thomas Everett PEARSON b. 1819 in Franklin
Co,VA came to Wanda, Newton Co, Mo from Adamsville, McNairy Co, TN with
his 2nd wife Susan Fraser REED PEARSON, their 4 little sons and
at least one of his 6 children from his first marriage, Mary Catherine
'Katie' PEARSON. Thomas Everett's oldest son, James Palmer b.1853
in McNairy Co, TN Pearson, was living in Newton Co. by that time...both
were 'mining engineers'...they had run a Mill in McNairy Co, TN and had
done other 'heavy equipment work' eg road building etc. in TN. On 14 Nov
1878, Thomas Everett PEARSON was killed in a mining accident at
Wanda. He is buried in the Wanda Cemetery, and has a large stone still
intact. In 1880 his widow Susan still lived at Wanda with her daughter
from her 1st marriage, Roxanne REED who by 1910 was a widow, Roxanne
Reed TABOR, and the 4 little Pearsons sons plus stepdaughter Katie
By 1885 (or earlier) the only other Thomas Everett PEARSON b. 1819
son from the 1st marriage was living in McNairy County (or possibly in
McDonald Co). This was Thomas Everett PEARSON b. July 1862 in McNairy
Co,TN. He was married in July 1885 to JENNIE ANN MOORE. They were
living near Blackburn, Pawnee, OK by 1900 census, later moving to Hominy,
Osage, OK where Jennie Moore PEARSON died on 8 Dec 1929, buried
in the Hominy City cemetery. Tom PEARSON moved out to his newly
purchased ranch in Osage County between Skiatook & Sand Springs where
his of his grandsons and 2 great-grandsons still live and operate the ranch.
Tom PEARSON died in March 1953 and is buried at Hominy next to Jennie
Ann. His older brother, James Palmer PEARSON, the mining engineer
of the 1880 Granby census moved to Joplin, Jasper Co, Mo. He and Tom PEARSON
were very close and visited back & forth frequently. James Palmer PEARSON
was a mine owner by this time and according to family stories very much
opposed to the unions coming into the area...he disappeared without a trace
abt 1910/11. He was living with his wife and children in Joplin at the
time. The story is he was killed by the union people and his body dropped
down a mining shaft...he was never found, nor any evidence of his fate
discovered. Tom PEARSON searched for him for the next 20 yrs, going
off to MO to look at unidentified remains found there etc.... James Palmer
PEARSON wife and children were: Amanda Maiden name Unknown Pearson
b. abt 1851 in TN?Mo?; Elma Pearson b. 1875 who married a Mr. ACKERMAN
& lived somewhere around Miami, OK possibly, had 2 sons, family had
some connection with Carter Oil. Ida May Pearson b. 1877 MO no other information
on...& son Ernest Pearson b. July 1879- Granby, Newton, MO no other
information on him. The four sons of Thomas Everett Pearson b. 1819 and
2nd wife Susan Fraser Reed Pearson, all went into mining, moved to Joplin
by 1900...they were: William b. 1866 TN, Robert L. b. Nov 1873, John D.
Sept 1875 MO, and George B. Pearson b. Oct 1877 in Newton Co. George B.
Pearson became a fairly wealthy mine owner by 1920s-1940s...had only one
child, a daughter, Kay Pearson Waldower b. abt 1910 in Joplin. The other
3 brothers lived in Joplin most or all of their lives, one was a city fireman
Have a great deal of information on the Pearson family back to
England...and on their wives families as well. Thomas Everett PEARSON
b. 1819 was a grandson of Thomas Pearson b. 1753 in England who served
in the Rev War in the VA line as an artilleryman..Thomas Everett Pearson
b. 1862 in TN and his siblings descended from 5 Rev War soldiers. Will
gladly share all of this with anyone related.
