Jane - I can help you with the Bittick - Peppers - Spyres/Spires family.
What is your source for Malinda Pepper(s) being born in Londelle, Prairie Co, MO?
I'm not positive but I think Malinda is a dau of William and Mary Pepper(s).
Perry Bittick d. c1872 Lincoln Co MO Malinda Pepper(s) Bittick d. bef 19 Jul 1875 Lincoln Co MO
I have probate and guardian records for Malinda and 2 of their children - Laura and Stephen. Malen Spyres/Spires handled the probate of Malinda and guardianship of Laura and Stephen. Shortly before Malen and Hannah Bittick Spyres moved to AR he withdrew as their guardian. You are missing Stephen 'Steve' Samuel Bittick from your list of their children - he was b about March 1871.
I worked with a gal in AR a few years back and compiled a lot of info on the Spyres/Spires.
Mary E. Bittick md Jackson Peppers on 21 Oct 1869 Lincoln Co MO. This is a few months after Hannah Jane Bittick md Malen H. Spyres on 30 Aug 1869 Lincoln Co MO.
I've lost Mary and Jackson Peppers but may have found them in 1880 Stoddard Co MO. Not positive it's the same couple.
Will gladly help you. Some of this info is on our website: www.showmethebitticks.com
