William KEELING, born NC, parents both born NC, as the 1880 Census reports in Barry County, Missouri. He was residing with his daughter, Catherine KEELING BUTLER.
William J. DAVIDSON and Roda's oldest son, George B. DAVIDSON , born 1851 deceased 1858.
Official now !!! Just as Aunt Rhoda POWELL, STURMAN had gave to me many years ago. No disbute, now.
Tombstone has been cleaned , picture taken, and on the web site of Vineyard Cemetery, Barry County, MO.
A picture of Roda J. KEELING DAVIDSON headstone is there. William J. DAVIDSON information is on the reverse side of Roda J. KEELING DAVIDSON stone. It is about a 12 inch sguare, big long upright white marble spire atop a large, white marble base.It had been knocked of it's pedestal the last time I was there. I did not take those pictures that are on the internet.But I have personally viewed his information.
I still believe WILLIM J. DAVIDSON is the son of Sarah (??) DAVIDSON, brother to James DAVIDSON who resided around Harrison, Arkansas.
One of James DAVIDSON desendants wrote to me by e-mail abt. 9 years ago, telling me that William and James had first went to Greene County, Mo. Then James went to Arkansas, William came back to Barry County, MO.
Question: Who knows where Sarah DAVIDSON passed away? I do believe she had been married to a DAVIDSON. Has anyone searched for probate records for her or located since 1850 Census. Likely, she moved with her children?
Could Sarah DAVIDSON be in the early records of Barry County, Missouri
