He was my great, great grandfather on my grandmother's side of the family. According to a delayed birth certificate of his daughter, Fannie Bell, he was born in Leeton, Missouri in 1850. I found a census record that confirmed that. The last proof I have of him is in 1878 when he was married to Mary Jane Mulder and had the one daughter. At some point, he and Mary Jane divorced. I have searched Ancestry.com, familysearch.org, and even used search engines to find out what happened to him.
