Need help in locating any information on the MOUNTS family in Montgomery County, MO. I believe they resided in the county from about 1865. My grandfather William P. MOUNTS married a Mary Ellen ALVEY who also resided in the county. They had at least five or six children during the time they lived in Montgomery County. There could be a Joseph MOUNTS who lived there; he would be my great-grandfather. Thank you for any assistance.
