That is great.I will give you what info I have.If you would like copies, let me know.I am really trying to find information on the Roof family, and also on the Barnes family.Sarah Roof married Frank Barnes.His father was James Barnes.And then I lose the connection.
My mother-in-law just gave me a bunch of info this summer, and I have not had a chance to go through it.I just looked for everything on the Roof family, and here is what I have from her.I have no idea who the sources are, or if the info is accurate, but it is a starting point.
On the 1900 Census for Cass Missouri, Pleasant Hill Township.There is no page number or any other identifying info: Roof, James Head W M Oct, 1844 54 M 30 Missouri Michigan Michigan Nancy WifeW FAug, 1845 M 30 5 4 Tenessee Virginia Tennessee JoelSon W M Oct, 1881 18 SMissouri Missouri Tennessee Sarah Daughter W F Aug, 1884 SMissouri Missouri Tennessee
(So, according to the census he was born in Missouri, and his parents were born in Michigan)
From a typed set of family group information.(I will ask the M-I-L where they came from): James H Roof Born October 1844 Michigan Died 1905 Int. P.H., Missouri Married 1880: Nancy Elizabeth Roof Born August, 1845 Tennessee Died 1824 Hutch. Int. P.H. Missouri
