  • WEST, BOGART, NEELEY. Tom Griffiths thomasg@pbmo.net (12 Oct 1996): My great-great grandfather (James West-1817-1875) came from NY to Balchow, MO via Ohio. He married Julia Bogart, from Ohio (1822-1869). My descendents moved on to Kansas after that. According to my aunts, James is buried in the Upper Neeley Cemetary, which I don't see listed in the USGS information. James second wife, Nancy Neeley, is also in the Upper Neeley Cemetary, but she is buried with her lst husband. Since your ancestors came from Ohio to Andrew County, it makes one wonder what occurred to attract folks on to MO. Special land offers? Others sending back information?
  • STANDLEY or STANLEY (Harrison or Harris) A history in my possession (of Mendocino Co, CA) says that Harrison and his father, Harris, lived in Andrew Co. between 1835 and 1850, at which time Harrison came out to CA for the Gold Rush.

    I have hoped that myself and wife would live to see a continual line of railroad from St. Joseph, Missouri to Virginia and then we would come and see you all but we begin to dispair of that.

  • MESSICK (LYDIA) http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/r/e/e/Janet-L-Reed/index.html. Janet Reed (Apr 14, 2000)
    I have a letter that comes from a cousin of my grandmother who was carrying out research on the Messick line. She seems to have known what she was doing -- she actually attended some classes the Mormons were giving and has written up family history sheets. That doesn't prove this information is true, but it seems so unusual that I wonder why someone would make it up.

    Here's what she writes: "We can trace our ancestry back to a maiden lady, Mandy Messick, who bore 5 children, three boys and two girls, all by the same man whose name was Black. The children all bore their mother's surname, Messick. The youngest child was John, tour parental grandfather. Mandy brought these five children from the state of Kentucky to Andrew Co., Missouri. Legend says that she was honored and respected in her community. Her descendants live in NW Missouri and many of them are wealthy. Most of this information came from an woman in Savannah, Missouri who was a cousin to my grandfather, Perry. She said that Mandy worked for this man, Black, who was a plantation owner. Twice her parents came and took her home, and twice she returned to the plantation and to the man. He built her a house of her own and there she maintained her own separate household. this arrangement was not frowned upon by the people of that particular ??? and time. I do not know how old the children were when she left Kentucky; or why she came. This is a good story swolled up in oblivion." [Letter from Cleota ?, 7/6/1969]

    Here is Mandy/Lydia with what I have pieced together of her children at this point. Lydia Messick lived to be about 100 and is buried in the Fillmore Cemetery in Andrew Co.

  • JENNINGS (Jake and Ida Gelvin) St. Joseph. Brenda (Oct 17, 2000)
    Does anyone know information on the Jennings family. I believe Jake ran or owned a gas station in St. Joseph. I know at one time Jake owned a series of taverns. Jake was the son of Thomas J. Jennings and Elizabeth Hazel "Settles" Jennings, he had the following siblings: Jeff Jennings, John Jennings, James Tillman Jennings, Hester Jennings (Howard, Moats), Julia Jennings (Sherlock, Andrews), Lulu Jennings (Leigh, Henderson). In parenthesis is their married names. If anyone knows information or is kin to any of the Jennings please let me know. If anyone has any information or obituary's on Jake Jennings, he died in the 1960's. to 1970. I think 1960's. If anyone knows of the business they owned or knew anything of his siblings and their children please let me know. Thank you.

  • BOWLIN (Chester A. and Dora REILEY (or var)) COSBY AREA 1926 THE RAYMOND FAMILY FORUM. shari leigh phillippie bowlin raymond (Feb 10, 2001)
    CHESTER A. BOWLIN is my step-grandfather, his wife, DORA REILLY (or a variation of that spelling) their son is CHARLES CHESTER, (twins) daughter, DORA LOU BOWLIN, born January 8,1926. Dora Reilly Bowlin was a school teacher, retired at marriage. CHESTER A. BOWLIN, was a business man. He owned or was partner in a creamery, the first chevy dealership in the area, and the local ALLIS CHALMER farm equipment business. The lived in somewhat of an opulant manner, owning a very large white house on a hill near COSBY, sporting its own croquet court. I cannot believe there is no record of these businesses or CHESTER A. He was also Mayor of Cosby along with a man by the name of Bunz, I cannot find any record of him either, sometime around 1926. PLEASE search your files and if you find any records of this family, please let me know. This is an interesting family and I have more information, including a beautiful family portrait that I will share upon request.
    (posted with a different email address Feb 25, 2001: shari leigh phillippie bowlin raymond (Feb 25, 2001)
    I am searching for CHESTER A. BOWLIN(g) from Andrew Co MO. I do not know his date of birth, father's, mother's name. I do know he lived in Cosby Andrew Co MO during 1926-1928. He was married to DORA REILLY(spelling could be different). The had twins, CHARLES CHESTER and DORA LOU. My step-father, CHARLES CHESTER BOWLIN says that their roots are german. They lived in a big white house in or near Cosby. CHESTER A. was at one time Mayor of Cosby along with a man named BUNZ. CHESTER A. owned or was partners in a creamery, the first Chevy dealership in the area, and an Allis Chalmer dealership. He should not be difficult to find in the Cosby records, yet I haven't found a hint. My father said their home was beautiful and they did a lot of intertaining. He said it sported it's own croquet court. When the children were 2 years old ole CHESTER liquidated his funds and left his family. Grandma DORA was, previous to marriage, a school teacher, but in 1928- there were no jobs for teachers. She gave up her home and moved to St Jo MO where she took in washing and ironing to raise her children. The story is from here that CHESTER A looked them up in St Jo and my father being 12 and angry about the hardship that he had caused his mother, shut the door on him. He was suposedly a police man in California. I do not know if that was the state or the town in MO. I think he must have changed his name. We do know the BOWLINS had relatives in the State of California. CHESTER had a sister whom, it is said was in fragile health. I have a wonderful picture of the three of them dressed in their finery for a family portrait. It is a beautiful picture that I would be happy to share. CHARLES CHESTER went to work full time at night in 1938 he was only 12, and went to school during the day to support his mother and twin sister. Grandma BOWLIN never remarried and CHARLES CHESTER provided for her until her death. This is all I know about this family. If you have any knowledge about ole CHESTER or his parents, birthdates, birthplace etc, please contact me
