Hello, I am just starting on this part of my family's history. I am not even sure where the connection is, but I think a Ventres married a Cooper Hitt in Southeast Missouri. My mother's maiden name was Ventres. Her father George Lewis Ventres had an old photo album with tin type photos in it. Two of them are Sarah and Cooper Hitt. Another one is Thomas Ventres, and another is Adwell? Jarrett. If anyone has any information on these people, please contact me.
