Lew Macfarlane -- 13 December 1998
I would very much appreciate any information about my ancestors Simon Ephraim LEWIS and
Mary Catherine HARDING. Simon was born in Pilsen, Bohemia, in 1805, and immigrated to the
U.S. sometime in the early 19th century. Mary Catherine HARDING was born in Franklin, TN,
on March 9, 1818. Mary and Simon were married, according to the only information we have,
in Troy, MO on June 17, 1935. Simon may have been of Jewish extraction but we are not
aware of their church affiliation at the time of marriage. The couple apparently left for
Potosi, Wisconsin a year or two after the wedding, and did not return to Lincoln County
We have so far hit a dead end on immigration, ship or naturalization records so a record
of the marriage would be particularly important to tracing both ancestors back. Would
appreciate your posting this and passing on any information that you may have---or
suggested civil or
church records which I could access directly.

I have KOESTER (KOSTER) Baptismal Records, Marriage Records, and one Death Record from St.
Alphonsus Catholic Church at Millwood. I was able to go through some of their record books
a few years back and copied all references to the KOESTER (KOSTER) surname, as my great
grandmother was a Koester. Her name was SARAH FRANCES KOESTER. She married DANIEL CLUNY in
November of 1882. Sarah's father was WILHELM KOSTER and her mother was MARY ANN (POLLY)
KINION (daughter of William Riley Kinion and Rachel Rebecca Cox). I would be happy to pass
on the information to any KOESTER (KOSTER) researchers. Maybe it will help with your
research. All records were copied verbatim. I have not found any connection between my
Wilhelm KOSTER and the other Koster's in the area, but I'm sure they must've been cousins,
and he may have had a brother that lived in the area. He was born in Hanover, Germany
about 1813. He was said to have had at least seven brothers. He left Germany as a young
man to avoid being thrown into the local army. He was a cabinetmaker by trade. The
children of these other KOSTER cousins were at the marriages and births of my KOESTER's
and their children. They must've been related. Any info on the KOESTER (KOSTER) families
would be appreciated.

I am looking for information about the death of Dr. Benjamin F. TODD. Benjamin F.
TODD married Ellen Boucher CARR in 1845. They had these children:
Overton Carr, Mary Ora, Mariah Winston, Laura, Benjamin F., and Sterling Price TODD.
An examination of Lincoln County probate records suggests that he died between March and
October of 1862 . I have found three versions of what happened to him. Here they are:
1.) History of Lincoln County, Published 1888, pages 404 &
405, in an article about local Civil War Casualties-Dr. Benjamin TODD, living at his home
on the Highland Prairie, about ten miles from Troy, who was a Southern sympathizer, though
a quiet citizen, was killed at or near his home by a Federal scout.
2.) A CARR family record says he was killed by bushwackers.
3.) A story passed down through the TODD family says a discussion
with some Union troops about some blacks on his property escalated in to an argument and
the troops shot him dead in front of his house and family.
I have been told there were not any newspapers published in
Lincoln County at this time. Can anyone help me find out what happened, when it happened,
and where he is buried?

brother and father "moved on". The spelling of this surname is so varied,
depending, I'm sure, on the public official who did the writing. According to that 1830
census, William Sr was b between 1760 & 1770 and William Jr between 1800 & 1810.

family. Provided I can find them. In the album behind a picture was a will written by a
Louise Dudley of Troy, Missour 1909. She had a brother named John and I think by the

Bernice and Clara. Martha had two daughters Carrie Cooley and Osa Geiger and possibly a
step- daughter Clara Farmer-Shafer. There was also a nephew listed by the name of
Rufus(hard to tell though the handwriting). There was also a marriage certificate copied
in 1952 of a marriage of Clara Farmer to a J.L. Shafer. And a niece was mentioned by the
name of either Lavern or Lorvernia Dudley. Any information you could provide on these
names would be helpful. Thank you Mo

We are looking for info about Nick MILDENSTEIN, his first wife, Adaline WOODCOCK, and
their children. Adeline was a half sister to my grandmother, America Allison Calvin.
Adeline and America Allison were daughters of America Martin who first married James
Yancey, then Robert Allison and then Woodcock. Adeline Woodcock was born in 1856, married
Nick Mildenstein in 1875, lived at Foley, died in 1886 and was buried at Elsberry.
Goodspeeds History of Lincoln County, MO, states that "The large flouring mill in the
south end of the town was the original Burr Oak Valley Mills, brought to Foley in 1880 by
Messrs Mildenstein and Anderson." We think that this was Nick Mildenstein. Adeline
apparently had two children, the oldest named Dora. Any info about this family would be
greatly appreciated. Wayne Calvin Patterson

Dear researcher, My 2nd gr-grandmother kept a daily diary from Jan. 1, 1875 to March 1884
(with periodic skips) while the family lived in Troy (3 miles West of Troy at Hawk Point).
The family moved from Minneapolis and located in Troy about 1871. I believe they located
here because of other family that lived in Mexico, Mo., and an aunt that lived in nearby
Warrenton. I have a transcribed version of the diary with the following surnames as
mentioned. There may be some genealogical info however, most of the diary dwells on the
families activity and interaction as a farm comm- unity with their neighbors. SLAVEN -
BARLEY - WALES - BRITTONS - COX - COLLISH - BARRETT - SINGLETON - RUGG - BARTLOW -

It is impossible to know if these spellings, and or pronunciations are correct. Emma Wales
was born in 1833 Indiana and moved to Minn. circa 1852 where she met and married William
Harrison Bartlow in 1855. Two of her brothers John S. Wales and George Newton Wales
married two sisters named Gant who's families were pioneers in Audrain Co., Mo. After 1884
Emma and family moved to St. Louis. After 1903 the family moved to Ohio, where Emma and
William are buried. The diary repeats some of the surnames repeated, and mentions some
only once. The area where they lived were mostly Czech. immigrants who purchased the land.
I will be happy to answer any queries that may pertain.

name. Also seeking info on DAVIS especially Peter and Hetty parents of Eliza and Emily and

I am seeking information on GORDON C. JENNINGS. The only information that we have is that
he married Catherine Overton Avery MCCUTCHEON in Lincoln County in 1820. Four children,
