This is also a delemia to me. I know some of the RUARK family descendants of Barry County, Missouri. Actually lived only abt. 1/2 mile from where I was raised. Orba Ruark, Freda POE RUARK and children.
Researching the STITES family of Carroll County, Arkansas. George R. STITES is the line I'm searching for history. They had 13 children with 4 living in 1900 census Still searching for 7 more children's names to go with what I have found. Think this Maggie is another one of the children, but need to find documentation to that effect.
