Ola Lou Dyer
Israel Heath was born in Berkeley Co VA (now WV), married and had 3 kids before moving from there to Cabell Co VA (now WV). One of those 3 kids was your ancestor Richard Blue Heath. He ended up having 6 more children after the move, for a total of 9. About 1839 the whole family moved out of Cabell Co VA into very early Missouri when land became available there. The family spread out in several counties but your Richard Blue Heath lived in Tom Twp, Benton Co. MO. beside two of his brothers. Then he up and moved out of Missouri and headed for 'early' Texas, taking his large family with him. He was the only one of the original 9 children to leave Missouri for Texas. The Heaths have a very rich history in Platte County, Daviess County, Benton County and Howard County, Missouri.
