Still searching for the parents of Reuben, (Rubin, Ruban,Rewbin and on it goes) Alexander, born about 1827 in TN or MO. possible brothers, Charles L.b 1831, Il and Thomas b 1829. Census 1880 Polk Co., Missouri list father born NC and mother b KY. for both Reuben and Charles. Charles also has a son listed named Rewben.
Reuben married Eliza Jane Looney in St. Francois Co., MO 1846 and settled in Dallas Co., MO 1870. Not found in 1850 or 1860 census at this time. Family lore is that Reuben served in Civil War and signed up in Linn Creek, MO. Eliza (Janie)was of Native American ancestry through the Holder line. Children: James H(ullum)married Nancy Stretch; William Benjamin, Antney Stuart married Marjie Carver, Elizabeth possibly married John Rambo, Ellen L. married JH Rambo, Mandy, Vina. Dallas Co., records also list John T., died 1869 of typhiod, as a son. Charles had a dau, Julia married a Lawrence. Is there anyone else researching this family? Please contact me.
