I believe that your Malisa, daughter of Richard & Letty, is the Malissa who married 14 Oct 1865 in Putnam co, MO to Nathaniel Holmes Blanchard. I am researching the Blanchard family there. Malissa & Holmes had 11 children before she died in the poor house in 1884 after the birth of twin daughters. Holmes was a drinker & didn't take very good care of his family. He died in 1888. He came from a good family and several still live in Putnam co,MO. Malissa & Holmes are buried in the Blanchard section of the Wyreka cemetery near Powersville, York twp, Putnam co, MO. They had a son named Richard. Look for them on the 1880 census.
