One cemetery stone in St.Clair County, Missouri (Appleton City, Missouri Cemetery) states:Charles Deardorff, born June 13, 1823 died May 22, 1905 and on the same stone, Sarah Deardorff, born Sept. 15, 1825 died March 21, 1905. Recently read obituary of a Eli Deardorff, but cannot find where I came onto it. I do remember was in Appleton City Journal before 1900. No parents listed, but was in 1890's andhad a family, but no names listed but his own. Believed Eli's parents were southwest of the town of Appleton City, MO., stated in Eli"s obituary.There is a marker beside Charles and Sarah Deardorff, but did not write it down. I will on my next visit to the cemetery. I am not related to this family. In Cedar County, Missourithe David Deardorff's wife is from my Ronk/Ranck line.
