My Mother was born Mary Myrtle Files 1926 KC MO. her line goes Father;Thurman Eugene Files 1888-1970 Odessa MO and KC Grandfather; Luther Clarkson Files 1862-1946 Odessa MO G-Grandfather; Joseph Files 1825-1887 no locations
Joseph's siblings are listed as; Jake, Frank, Robert, William, Sarah, and Anna. I have no dates or locations for these people. Sarah may have married ? Lupton and Anna married ? Parish.
Joseph's parents are listed as ? Files and ? Hensler and lived at one time in Virginia
I hope we are on the same line and can help each other. I too seek to extend the tree beyond this point and eliminate the ?'s.My Joseph is the 1st son of ? and ? could eaily be Joseph. Hensler could easily be Hensel as well. Im just now picking up this research where my sister left off and hope to make some inroads.
