January 1998 through June 1998:

David L. McMonigle (6/29/98)
I am seeking any information down to the current generation of James C. FUNKHOUSER (1856-????) and his wife, Sarah Inez JACOBS (1859-????). James and his family moved to the Blodgett area of Scott County between 1910-1920 from Tolu County, Kentucky. They had the following identified children:
1)Arthur Lee (1878-????),
2)Lillian Clyde (1880-????),
3)Ekie Ethel (1881-????),
4)George Thomas (1885-????),
5)Allie Francis (1887-????),
6)Benjamin Phenis (1888-????),
7)Burnice Beulah (1893-????),
8)Holly Lillie (1894-????),
9)John Philip (1896-????),
10)Cleta (Clytie) Agnes (1901-????).
Most of these children were probably born in Tolu County, Kentucky but at least some of them migrated to Scott County, Missouri. I have not been able to find any definitive information on the whereabouts of any of these ten children.
David L. McMonigle,

I am looking for information on Alvin SMITH & Nancy Jane (WITHROW) SMITH. Their daughter Mary Margaret SMITH was born in Blodgett 5 Dec 1910.
