Found this little note on the Morgan Co, MO site and thought I would send it over.........note the last sentence:
Going out west from town were John Scoggins, a Cumberand Presbyterian preacher, Enoch Taylor and several Dalton families who lived out on Haw Creek.Henry C. Dunn, John P. Ingram and grandfather Buckingham.Later on out east were the Kelsay families, Browns, Beanlands, French, Townley, Wade Parks, who was one of the best men in the county, and who was Dr. P.G. Woods’ father-in-law; Elisha Taylor, Jarred Gill, Uncle Billy Callison, and a Mr. Wilson.A little further west were McCaslin, Madole and Burkhart.South were the Ross families, the Housers, Waltons, Howards, Lamms, Landrums, Purl and Morris.Then up nearer town, south were the Merriotts and Silveys by the legions, Earnests and Ivy.The Willsons came from Tennessee and settled in the south part of the county where they wore themselves out making farms.On the Gravois there lived a family by the name of Farris and one by the name of Allen, father of John D. Allen, who now lives east of Versailles." ***the above was found at: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~pattiejo/morgan/index.htmlhttp://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~pattiejo/morgan/index.html
I would suggest you contact the Cemetery, or County Clerk, or Historical/Genealogical Society in Morgan County regarding the reading of his headstone and/or a death record.I have had to have several ancestors listings corrected over the last year......after the headstone is more closely read, the correct dates are found.Worth a try.
