The only information I have is that his name was FRIEND and he married Matilda Hoover abt 1836, either in Christian or Greene County's MO. They had one son, George, b 17 Oct 1837 in ,Greene, MO. Mr Friend evidently died as Matilda later married Adam Eustler and had a son James who was 23 on the 1870 Census for Olathe, Johnson, KS. George Friend was living with them with his two young sons, Thomas and Andrew. Geo was m1 to Ann Pennington and 2nd to Martha Ann Alameda. Geo left several descendants in the SW MO area: Fred, John, James, Wm, Walter, Jeff(erson), Rosa and Laura D. If you know anything about this family or the given name of Mr FRIEND, please contact: Irene McTeer Hunt firstname.lastname@example.org Please list in subject line: FRIEND Family Gen.
