I have some information the the Koonce - Shoults - Bitiick - Smith familes. Margaret Shoults (various spellings) is the niece of Lucinda Jane Smith who md my Willis Henry Bittick. Margaret's mother is Lucinda's sister, Artimesa Smith. I research all of the descendants of the Smith family along with several other lines. Half of Jefferson Co, MO seems to be related to me.
Can you tell me if John Henry Koonce died c1901 in St Louis? Do you know when or where Margaret died?
