I am looking for information on the origins of the Dallas TWP in St. Clair County, MO. Does the name have any connection to the family of Joshua Dallas, Jr. who, according to a newspaper article in the Union City, TN Commercial in 1901, moved to St. Clair County, MO. In this same newspaper article, it mentions his his father, Joshua Dallas, Sr. (ca 1760-1847), who died in Obion County, TN and was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. My SAR chapter in Obion County, TN is interested in having a grave dedication for Joshua Dallas, and needs to contact any of his descendants for more information on the Dallas family. Are there any descendants of Joshua Dallas, Jr. still living in St. Clair County? Any help, suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
