Re: Wilds, Howard Co, MO
This is indeed the closest thing I have found yet even suggesting that Joseph Wilds existed in this area! The only glitch is we have his middle name as Warren and the census lists his middle initial as M. There is a chance that middle name may not be accurate as I have run into that before.
No info. as of yet on your unknowns, but I will continue to check.
Thanks for the follow up!
