Thans for the reply. I have the marriage dates through the records Ross County sent me. Miles C. Tuder was my great grandfather who came to Lee's Summit, Mo. with family in 1869.Two sons, George W. and John William went back to Ross County , married, and died there. Of the Tuders listed, Lucinda, Joseph (two marriages), Harriet, Jemimah,and Elizabeth (George Peters),were his siblings. Ross County sent me a lot of records of Tudors ( Tuders)I can't place in my line.I sent a good sized check and asked for all Tuder-or information for from 1820-1920.Are any of the others from your family?It seems there should be some connection.I am interested in the history of the area and would like to buy any books, etc. available.
