here is what the discussion, research and query to cass county researcher yielded.
I wrote this person back and thanked them profusely saying I was
hoping that I would find a distant relative in a cemetery or farm
that was at Amarugia.

Subject: Greene Co.,Pa., Calverts...and tidbits more census at bottom
To: firstname.lastname@example.org, Ninah@carolina.rr.com
Well I got done running through the counties and the Calverts I finished Enoch Calvert off too all his census from 1810-1840 then his son's widow in 1850 Preston...I found out where the Enoch Calvert born 1836 comes from his father was a son of Enoch Calvert Sr born 1758...his son was William Calvert he married Nancy/Ann_____they are the parents of Enoch Calvert 23 in Preston Co.,Va. anyway at somepoint I am just going to post that info up to the Calvert board. I am still interested in Enoch Calvert SR's brother inlaw Francis Calvert...I think he was next door to my William Fairfax Jr.,in the 1810 Prince William Co.,Va., census..
Anyway on to Greene Co.,Pa...after David's emails pointing out Greene Co.,Pa 1850 Morgan twp.,I took a look and there is a
Thomas Colber probably Calvert:) he is 82 and born PA. that would him born ca 1768 I don't know about himhe would have been old enough to be a father to Thomas Clair Calvert born ca 1803 husband of Elizabeth Johnson.
There were early Thomas Calverts listed while this guy was listed in the Morgan twp in 1810 there was a Thomas Calvert and an Ezekiel Calvert who were both in Whitley twp in 1810 Greene Co.,PA...Ezekiel Calvert appears to have married a Rhoda Debolt- her line goes back to Maryland. In 1810 Thomas and Ezekiel Calvert are enumerated 26-45 they both have 3 sons under 10 and no daughters.. this Thomas Calvert is not Thomas Clair Calvert who was born ca 1803...however one of the son's in this Thomas Calvert's census who is under 10 could be Thomas Clair Calvert.
I am guessing that Greene Co.,Pa., is the next place to look.
A note on Rezin/Reason Calvert he was in the same place as my Obediah Cooksey Jr., in Morgan Co.,Ohio 1840 Obed was in Pennsville he died there.
This is from memory but one of Obed's grand kids Townsend Cooksey was down in Missouri I can't remember if it was Cass Co.,Mo., off the top of my head...but Townsend and his brother Obediah Simpson Cooksey both served in the Civil War when Townsend Cooksey showed up in Missouri I didn't give it much thought he came back to Ohio anyway.I do know that Rezin Calvert was from Pa...I looked at him because there was a Calvert so close to Obed Cooksey and Obed's mother was a Calvert just caught my attention..
The other thing in that John Calvert and Winifred Smith line it went to Scioto Co.,Ohio.
I believe all their children were accounted for born to late anyway for the Jacob Calvert that was born ca 1780 in Pa and living with his son Fletcher in Marshall Co.,Va. 1850.
A Marshall Co.,marriage a
Jacob H Calvert m 24 May 1859
to Delinda Manning
I found Belind Calvert in the 1850 Marshall Co.Va., census in Beeler Station

Elizabeth Manning 16 F
Cathrine Manning14 F
Alfred Manning 12 M
Martha Manning 10 F
When the Ohio started coming up with Jacob Calvert and his children these are the first Calverts I thought of...I think you are retaining more Calvert info then you realize:)
going by Fletcher's(calvert)1850 census his Dad Jacob, would have been born around 1780 given his age of 70 in 1850
next message from the cass co. researcher.... amarugia
btw dayton, archie, garden city, so. of harrisonville, the
The location of Lucretia (Calvert) Cooke's grave is just on the edge of the Amarugia's. Please give me a call when you're coming and I'll make arrangements to get access. I'll need a little notice because the current owner works at the same place I do. I don't have his phone number so I'll need to contact him at work.

--------- Original Message ----------------------------------
my brother responded as we grew up there....
you have got to be kidding me????????????!?!?!!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the original response to another researcher:
Subject: research indicates:
resin Rezin (reason) had migrated out of PA to Morgan Co. OH and then onward to Cass Co. Mo possibly.
I think your best bet right now is Greene Co.,Pa., I would also see where
that Jacob Calvert born 1780 Pa., came from after all his family is down in
Marshall Co.,Va., in 1850 so right geo area, for you....he might be a
collateral branch? or a brother of Thomas C Calvert born 1784?
In response to an ealier message
I found this:
the researcher responded:
Lucretia Cook(e)'s grave in Coldwater Twp
Message: In the "Index to Burial sites & Cemeteries of Coldwater Township
Cass county, Missouri" there's a listing for "Cook grave" that was found on
the farm of Mr. and Mrs. Jerry Duggan in 1976. The land used to be owned by
my ancestor, Rezin Calvert--Lucretia was his daughter. I have a letter
written by Lucretia's sister, Rumina, which says that Nancy (Rezin's wife)
was also buried on that same land. Basically, I have tracked down my
ancestors this far, and when I found the land a couple of months ago, I
attempted to contact the people now living on the land for permission to
search for this grave (and perhaps others). Some nice locals pulled up and
informed me that it was a vacation house, so the people weren't home. I
DESPERATELY NEED to find out how to contact these people. I live about an
hour and a half away, so it's important for me to be able to search the land
without violating these people's privacy. If anyone knows these people
please have them e-mail me or e-mail me their info so I can complete my
research on this branch of my family tree. Thanks.
Observed: my friend responded earier:

I do know that Rezin Calvert was from Pa...I looked at him because there was
a Calvert so close to Obed Cooksey and Obed's mother was a Calvert just
caught my attention..
Based on this I contacted a Cass Co researcher who provided the following:
I don't find any burial records for Rezin listed in the cemetery records so
apparently no stone remains or else the people who have owned the land since
have never reported the burial site. All of the following deed records are
in Coldwater twp with the exception of the sale from G W Davis which was
located in Dayton Twp.

Most of these CALVERT's were from the Belton area, there are some CALVERT
burials in Belton. The Lucretia Calvert who married James Cooke may hold the
key to the burial location of Rezin if she was his daughter. In the summer
of 2001, we received a call about a possible burial location in Coldwater
Twp. The man gave me the information on the only stone he found there which
was a stone for Lucretia. We did not personally go to the site, but I know
where it is and if you come back up this way, I'm sure we could get
permission to go back there and check for more stones. I know the person who
currently owns this piece of property. I do grave dowsing and would be able
to identify how many other graves were there and their gender. This would
also help in knowing where to probe for stones. I'm pretty sure this may be
the right locations for the cemetery because it is just up the road from the
Southfork Baptist Church which is mentioned in the deed records. We called
it the Cooke cemetery because it was the only name we had to go by.
