Theresa, sure can't find a connection with Charles.The 1850 census has him & his family living with a Deborah Ireland age 50 b. Tn. in Cass Co., Mo.Her child, James, 16 also there. (Was this her mother?) In 1860 they are in Cedar Co, Mo.
An Enoch REctor b. 1813 Tn. was in Cedar Co. in 1860. There was a James Rector who married Sally Loveland 1839 Lincoln Co., Mo.I have no connections for them. Do you have any hints about relatives, etc.
