I'm researching John Louis Meisburgerof Missoouri.I have that he was born in 1860 in Missouri. I was told that he was a telegraph operator for a railroad company.
I have found him in the 1900 Census: 1900 Census, Justice Precinct No 4, Royse Town, Rockwall County, Texas Sup Dist 6, Enum Dist 87, Sheet 5 A, Dwelling 77 5 Jun 1900 Meisburger, Louis Head W M Aug 1860 39 M 19 Mo Unk Unk Pearl Dau W F Jan 1884 16 S Mo Mo Ky Myrtle Dau W F Jul 1886 13 S Mo Mo Ky John Son W M Dec 1888 11 S Mo Mo Ky Vinita Dau W F Jun 1891 8 S Tx Mo Ky Barker, Mary M-in-law W F Mar 1820 80 Wd 5/4living Ky Ky Ky
His daughter Venita April Meisburger married William Franklin McBroom. Both are buried in Amarillo, Texas.
I've also been given that the mother-in-law was also listed as having the surname of Buker and one family tree gives John Louis Meisburger, born Oct 27, 1860 in Morgan, Florence County, Missouri and married to Emma Parker.
Any information or correspondence would be appreciated. Thanks, Ruth Padilla Amarillo, Texas
