Update:Bob Phoenix's message above includes what are apparently Levi and Martha Pheonix's children.Gilbert b. 1881 Wesley b. 1883, Thadeous b. 1884 in Porter Twp. Christian Co. MO.In 1888, the family moved to Stone Co. MO--I have a homestead patent (copy) for Levi, dated 9 Apr 1893.Martha apparently died about this time, Levi turned the boys over to friends and neighbors, and disappeared.All that remains now is, where did he go?
