HARTGROVE FROM IRON CO, MO
Looking for information on what happened to my family after 1880.Jesse Hartgrove born in TN @1802 migrated to Washington/Iron Co, MO.He married Elizabeth "Betsey" Henderson b. 1815, about 1835.They had 10 children:
Margaret E who married Wm BURNHAM
Emily who married Samuel SMITH,
Grorge W. who married Missouri Jane VEST,
Americus/Emory who married Elizabeth HARTGROVE,
William L., my great grandfather
Their mother died sometime between 1870 & 1876 and the family disappeared from Iron Co., MO.
William migrated to Jersey Co, IL and married Elisabeth Davenport.William & Elisabeth had 3 children; Elsie Jane my grandmother, Fred & Myrtle.Elisabeth died before the 1900 census because William is listed as a widower with 3 children and 1 step daughter from Elisabeth's previous marriage to Thomas COOK.The 1910 census shows William in St Geneveieve Co., Mo with granddaughter, Myrtle.Also Elsie Jane is now married to Walter Thomas from Marion Co., IL with 4 children.
Have not been able to find information regarding the rest of the siblings of William or the other 2 children, Fred & Myrtle.
