According to 1900 Census, he was born May 1876 in Missouri and by online Adair County land records he had 40 acres of land adjoining his wife Sarah's parents, Levi Thompson, whom also signed the consent of marriage. I am in hopes of finding his resting place. What I know by record is that he married Sarah Elizabeth Thompson 28 March 1897, according to marriage record, they married in Nind, Adair County Missouri. Parents of 4 children, Ada, Clarence, Lawrence and born in 1908 was James. The 1910 Census shows Sarah as Widowed. I have no other record past 1910 for the son James born in 1908, so I have to assume that child passed early in age?
Sarah went on to marry Dillard Howard Helton 12 Dec 1910 and passed in Iowa.
Any assistance is appreciated
