Seeking information on Robert Lee FERGUSON, b. about 1870, married Lena Alice ROBERTS between 1890-1898. Settled in Jonesburg, MO. Had son Carl FERGUSON, b. 1898, and daughter Jane FERGUSON, b. about 1896. Robert apparently passed on before Lena, and Lena moved to Newton, Massachusetts, where she died and was buried in Brighton Cemetery, just outside of Newton. According to Carl's birth certificate, Lena was born in KY approx 1871. The jump to Missouri still keeps me puzzled. Anyone have any ideas onevents or historical reasons why many moved from KY to MO? I'm finding quite a few instances of that. Any help on parentage of Lena or Robert would be appreciated.

Their children: Pauline "Polly - Auntie", Robert, William Theodore, Francis E. "Frank", H. H. "Hins", Thomas, "Lennie", Emma, Arlene "Artie".

I am seeking information on BAUGH family. Mary Temple BAUGH was born Montgomery County on 31 December 1876. I am seeking any information on her family. Her father was John BAUGH and mother was Elizabeth BAUGH. I have been unable to trace them further back. Mary married John PAULSEN in 1902. John BAUGH shows up on the 1876 Montgomery County Census and that is the last I can find of him. Elizabeth died in Jasper County in 1905 but no mention of John. Any help you can give me would be appreciated. Thank you very much.

Searching for my great-grandfather's family, Samuel Collier MAJOR. He had a sister named Bess. He was born in Missouri in 1881. His cousin was governor in 1912, Elliott W. MAJOR. I noticed the marriage listing for Elliott's daughter in 1911 in this county's lookups. I feel I am finally starting to get close. Samuel was an actor on the legitimate stage during the late 1800's and into the 1900's. This has made it very difficult to find him as he was probably moving on to a new city every couple of weeks to perform on the stage. I am trying to pin down his birthplace and his parents' names.
