SADEWHITE posted by Michael D. Sadewhite, Sr. on Tuesday, January 6, 1998
I am very interested in finding out anything I can about the SADEWHITE's around the Marshall, Mo. area. My Grandmother was Julia Sadewhite, who was the first female Rural Route mail person in the nation. She started in about 1918, when her husband John died. She lived in Marshall, Shackelford and Blue Lick. She was the daughter of Dennis Desmond. What we are trying to do is find out about John, her husband, where he came from, who were his relatives (Sadewhite)? We heard about a split in the family when he married Julia. And an earlier split in the family during the Civil War when one son fought for the North and another fought for the South. Several relatives (cousins and their sons and daughters) still live in the Marshall area, but, they know as littlle as I do about the Sadewhite line prior to about 1900. Many thanks for any help you might be able to provide.

He married Bessie Mildred BERLIN, who was born March 3, 1895. His parents were William Riley King (1857-1921) and Laura Bell SNAPP (1860-1944).

DIAMOND, JOHNS posted by Gary J. Vincent on Friday, February 27, 1998
My maternal grandfather, Thomas Jefferson DIAMOND, was born April 13, 1880, in Wingham, Huron County, Ontario, Canada. In April 1898, at the age of 18, he immigrated to Sweet Springs, Saline County, MO. He worked for the Sweet Springs Milling Co. as a flour miller apprentice for two years. In June 1900, he moved to Charleston, MO, where he worked for the Charleston Milling Co. When he immigrated, he used as a reference Thomas Jefferson JOHNS, whom I believe to be his uncle (his mother's maiden name was Johns). Johns resided in Sweet Springs in 1898, but I do not know whether he was a US citizen at the time. It is possible that Johns was also in the milling business. I would be interested in learning whether Thomas Jefferson Johns may have settled in or near Sweet Springs, and whether he had any family there. This information may help me establish the ancestry of my grandfather's mother, which is currently a complete mystery.

CRAIN, CRANE, CUNDIFF, PARKER posted by Greg Dunn on Tuesday, June 2, 1998
This is an excerpt from a long manuscript (written 1876) which I will provide to interested parties. Along with Connie Davidson, I am interested in this CRAIN (possibly CRANE) line in Saline County. "James R. Crain's daughter Moriah married her cousin Christopher Columbus CUNDIFF, and they live in Saline County, Missouri, where they have raised a family, several of whom are dead. Her husband has been sick with an incurable disorder of the bowels for several years past. Lucy Crain married Chrisman H. PARKER, and they too settled in Saline where they had a numerous family. Parker had always been very steady, and moral, and was highly respected. But he is represented to have fallen into evil ways, neglected his wife and family, and run after strange women, until Cousin Lucy left him, and his children would not have anything to say to him. Cousin Lucy and the children went to West Oklahoma, I think, and Parker went alone to California where he lately died alone and friendless. A valuable life ruined by wrong-doing. I omitted to mention that both John S. and William L. Crain served in the Union Army during the Slave-Holders Rebellion, John S. as a Lieutenant and William L. a Sergeant in the 7th M.S.M. James R. Crain, their father, died in St. Francisville, Clark County, Missouri, September 9th, 1838."

Jeremiah ODELL gave the land for the town of Marshall in Saline County, MO.

SMITH posted by Ross Gedeborg on Saturday, June 20, 1998
I am trying to find a family of Saline County SMITH ancestors and have found an entry in the Probate Records that I need help with. These records were hand-typed many years ago and appear to be an extract of the actual record, Saline County Missouri Probate Records, v. F-G, 1854-1866, with an index. In Book F, pg. 225, is this entry: "Fee T. 108 Whereas at the October Term 1855 of this Court Indentures of apprentership was improperly granted to J.H. Black binding to him an orphan boy named Joseph Smith and also to G.W. Anderson binding to him an orphan boy named Anthony Smith, it is hereby declared by this Court, that said Indentures thus improperly granted are null and void and Fredrick Smith is hereby appointed Guardian of both the person and estate of said children and he is hereby required to execute his bond for $100. [Joseph N. Laurie as Judge]. Anthony SMITH is our great-grandfather. He and Joseph, according to the family story, were orphaned crossing the seas from Switzerland in 1855. (The 1855 census of Kansas City, MO reconfirms immigration in 1855). I searched the typed record for the October 1855 session of court to no avail. I then checked one month to each side of the October session, then checked the October 1854 session again to no avail. I am hoping that there is more in the actual record in Saline County than was in the typed extract. We hope to find the name of the deceased parent and information that might lead to their ship or origin in Switzerland. What would it cost to have a search made to find the missing entry? I may be contacted by E-mail, or by letter at 308 N. Apple, Shoshone, Idaho 83352. Please contact me if interested in helping.

I'm looking for information on the family of William and Mary CLARK MADDEN; the records here in Dade County show that their son my Great Grandfather Charles Albert MADDEN was born June 1, 1865 in Saline, Mo., I believe that it should read Saline Co, Mo. as I know from the 1870 Chariton County Census records show that his older sister Sarah Sally Madden Jennings, b. 1845 Ill., and their brother Tom Madden, b. 1855, where living there. Another sister lived in this area also her name was Tessa Lee Madden STEPHENSON, b. abt. 1863, she stayed in the area and raised her children there. Another sister Jane Waddle Madden PORTERFIELD b. Sept. 3, 1847 in Cangamon Co, Ill., m. Jan. 19, 1865 to John Porterfield, may have also lived in the area, before coming to Dade Co., some of the family say she came directly to Dade Co., Mo. from Ill. My mother said she was told that my Great Grandfather came to Dade county from somewhere up North because his two older sister was already here. I don't have any birthdates on William and Mary Clark MADDEN, I know that the first two sibs., was just two years apart in age Sarah Sally and Jane Waddle, and that Tom was abt. 10 years younger than the first two, and that there was three other girls, Maggie (who married a Jennings), Tessa Lee b. abt. 1863, Anna b. abt. 1862 (died at age 14), then Charles Albert b. abt. June 1, 1865. My Grandmother was always puzzled by the fact that her father had these other siblings that was so much older. I would appreciate anything that you have on these Maddens and anything on the surname of MADDEN, CLARK, PORTERFIELD and JENNINGS; I know that the first name of Sarah Sally Madden Jennings was William we think he might have been from this area, and that he was some how related to Maggie Madden Jennings husband. We know that Maggie Madden Jennings went to Oklahoma, after her marriage and was there in 1936. We don't know what happened to William Jennings we just know that Sarah Sally was remarried to someone by the name of Gallentin, as we have found her in the census records as Sarah B. Gallentin.
