Your Reuben Clatterbuck is one and the same! Has to be with a "Holt" linkage. THE HISTORY OF CALLAWAY COUNTY, MISSOURI, 1984, is available at LaRue's Office Supplies in Fulton,MO. The cost back in 1996, was $45.00. It might have gone up $5.00 since. The address and phone number for LaRue's is: 523 Court Street, Fulton, MO 65251; ph. 1-573-642-3143. I'm sure if you called and put it on credit card, they would mail a copy right out to you. The book is huge, about 3 inches thick and 8X11 in size, with a royal blue hard-back cover, and the seal of Callaway County on the cover.There is also an excellent history in photograpy of Callaway County, which I believe was $35.00.I obviously splurged but it has been well worth it.
My history goes back four generations in the county, starting with John A. Adkins coming to Callaway Co. with his family in 1857. His son, my g.g.grandfather John H. Adkins, settled in Cedar Township of Boone County, with his family...the same year. The last few years of his life, John H. and Elizabeth (Leftwich) Adkins...moved to Boydsville to be near his parents. That is my Adkins connection.
Now I am curious about your Humphries connection. One of my grandparents dearest friends in Fulton was Mossie Humphreys, who was the daughter of Egbert and Adah Barbara Wilkerson Humphreys. And it doesn't stop there, her sisters...Maxie Barks and Mildred Dudley, along with their brother, Ralph Humpreys were also dear friends.They used to come calling at my grandparents after they retired to Fulton, on Bluff St.I think that Mossie lived right down the street. Mossie, along with her sister, Maxie and her husband, Milster Barks, were always up at the house visiting when my parents and I went for vacations there twice a year. Mossie taught school for years. As you probably know the Humphreys live on the Rangeline Road, right between Boydsville and Carrington. I have a wonderful article that I could copy and mail to you if you desire. If you are connected to this family you would love to have it.It is full of pictures and dates from Saturday, October 13, 1984, THE KINGDOM DAILY SUN GAZETTE. Mossie and Maxie were beautiful little girls.
Now, getting back to Reuben and Martha Clatterbuck, all that is mentioned is that they were the g.g.grandparents of Vernon, and that Reuben came to Callaway County in 1826, and is listed in the 1884 HISTORY OF CALLAWAY COUNTY.I am trying hard to get a copy of this out of print book.
