Hi Nancy!Thanks for the reply. My Mary Emaline Alexander was married to Jesse Swope in Warrensburg, Johnson Co. Mo. in July 1865.I have been told her birthdate was Jan 12, 1841...I have found dates of 1843/44 and as high as 1849.So her year of birth is iffy.She died in Pettis Co. Mo. Oct. 3, 1884.
Children:John Henry....Sarah....Nancy....Charles Wesley....Emma Susan [ my Gr.Grandmother ] William Hiram....Eva Mary....Elsie Pearl
Census states her parents were from Tennessee, I have also heard they lived in Kentucky...? family's lived near the State lines???
