    1. [MO] Stephen O Surber Obit request
    2. NA NA
    3. Hi! I have the newspaper.com subscription that is $7.99 a mo but it doesn't allow me to look at the 1958 Newspapers. I am hoping someone with a subscription will copy the obit for Stephen O Surber in the Springfield Leader and Press Wednesday Nov 19, 1958; one article says page 15 the other page 19 but the preview page looks like its the same article. Stephen Odell Surber is a cousin and I'd be very interested in what the article says. Thank you, Mallory M Cook

    1. [MO] John Porter Cummings of Plattsburg, Missouri
    2. Karen Isaacson Leverich via
    3. Back in 1998 or so, Lois Eaves of New Jersey posted about John Porter Cummings to this mailing list. "Last summer, I spent some time in a delightful little museum/record repository in Richmond that had the census records - all indexed and made neat & readable by members of DAR - I found a John Porter Cummings that fit the family stories - living with a family on the 1860 & 1870 census. By the looks of the other members of the family, it appeared that he was not one of the biological siblings. He was born - according to our family records, Sept 1854. He became a school teacher - married Barcena Rose of Starfield, MO. They had 3 children - Victor, Alonzo & Grace Alene, who was my husband's mother. [...] "We have always heard that his mother's maiden name was Grace... and that was why he named his daughter Grace. But that may just be a nicey story." Is Lois still out there somewhere? I'd love to hear from her. John Porter Cummings' death certificate is online and lists his mother as Martha Grace. AND what Lois might not have found yet is the 1882 probate of John Grace in Ray County, Missouri that includes his grandson "J. Porter Cummins of Plattsburg, Missouri". We really should compare notes. :-) (John Grace is my 3x-great-grandfather, give or take a great.) Karen

    1. [MO] William R. RAY'S DEATH
    2. dianna charles
    3. Hi Everyone I'm doing research into William R. RAY who we believe died in Dec 27, 1900 and is buried in MACKEY Cemetery Pomona Missouri, information and headstone photo kindly supplied by Connie Schachel. I'm hoping firstly if someone would be kind enough to have another look at his headstone as I would like someone to either re photograph the headstone OR Just double check the birth date which looks like Oct. 7 1845/6 (1840). Mackey Cemetery - plot 95 in row four. >From there I'm hoping to find a death notice/obituary and I note that there is the below newspaper for Howell county, could he possibly be mentioned there??? Howell County Gazette 11/25/1898 1/10/1902 Reel 53689. I have also contacted the Missouri State Archives to see if they can offer some advise. Problem with me doing research from Australia is sending money over to the US by cheque or money order, bit difficult from here. Happy to send money of course but like to use Paypal. Anway if someone can advise me how to proceed or find further evidence/information on William R (Riley?) RAY I would be most grateful. Kind regards Dianna from Sydney Australia.

    1. [MO] Stillwagon family 1906 in Platte county MO.
    2. Daniel Lewis Frommherz
    3. Folks, A cousin recently emailed to me a copy of an obituary for Georgia Ann Stillwagon wife of John A. Stillwagon who died on Friday 19 January 1906 according to an obituary printed on 25 January 1906 in the Platte County Gazette. In the obituary I learned that Georgia Ann Stillwagon was the daughter of Levi and Mary (Hallock) Mitchell who was born near Parkville in Platte County, Missouri on 16 February 1853 and that she was the mother of 8 surviving children besides her husband. My interest in this family connects to Lucretia King elder sister of my second great grandfather. If anyone finds some interest as I have in this family I can trace us back to 20 March 1635/1636 coming to the colonies on the Abigail departing Weymouth, Dorsetshire, England. Thanks Daniel Mary Hallock is listed a one of two daughters born to Hemon and Lucretia (King) Hallock in the 1830 census for Canaan Township, Madison County, Ohio. She married Levi Mitchell on 16 October 1848 in Ray County, Missouri

    3. I have the article regarding my gggrandfather, David Parrent, that states his estate is being handled in 1845 shortly after his death in Lafayette County. I have seen these announcements regarding estates throughout many of the historical newspapers. I was curious if the historical newspapers ever made mention of the information regarding the persons death and or family information in obituaries. I would like to research this but did not know who might have access to the Missouri historical newspapers. Linda
