I found the following record in the Cape Girardeau Co., MO, Register of Births, 1883-1893:
SLINKARD, Female - 5th child - 5 May 1885 - Burfordville Father: John Emanuel Slinkard, b. Cape Co. - age 33 Mother: Armanda Telitha Estes, b. Bollinger Co., Age 30
Does anyone have information on this couple? I would like to know the parents of Amanda Telitha Estes who was born in Bollinger Co., MO, abt. 1855.
I am also wondering if she is the same Amanda Estes who married Thomas Welch on 15 Apr 1871 in Bollinger Co., MO. Thomas died in 1874. If Amanda remarried, say, 1875 to John Slinkard, that would give approximately 10 years to birth five children. I would also like to know who her other children were.
