I am seeking information on Allen and Nancy Bullock BARGER who lived in Reynolds County, Mo., in the 1850's. Allen and Nancy moved to Reynolds Co. from Ripley Co., Mo. I am also interested in the George Miller, John Clark and Thomas Burton Tull families. My GR-GR-Grandfather, Allen Barger lived in Reynolds County, where, I don't know. I've notice that Carter County was organized from Reynolds County. I am trying to find out if Allen was buried in Carter County. It is my guest that he would have an unmarked grave, but I thought maybe there might be a church or cemetery record of who all was buried in the Carter Co. cemeteries. Would you check to see if there was an Allen Barger buried in Carter County. Allen BARGER was living in the 1850 Reynolds County census. Is youngest son was born in 1854. I believe he died between 1854-1860. His wife, Nancy Bullock BARGER remarried in Cooper Co. Mo. in 1860. She married a Eliher B. White. I hope you can be of some help to me. Thanks!
