I have recently discovered my own connection to the Oskins family in Henry Co, MO. My great-grandmother Piaetta Adair Silver was raised by Mary Oskins Bozarth, daughter of Harriet and William Oskins. Piaetta's mother was most likely Mary's younger sister Martha, and the family lived in White County, AR [where their children were born]. William and Harriet are listed in the 1850 census as born in TN.You can find some of their Henry County information on the county's website - including family members buried in the Bozarth Cemetery. You can also find the family listed in the 1850 White County, AR census. I just began my own search last week so don't have much more than that to share yet. If you like, I can send you a copy of what I have put together - and you can help me if you find anyhting more.
