I'm researching brothers Benjamin (b 1826) and James VEATCH (b 1831), who were in Platte County MO by the 1860 census. James married and stayed in this area, and raised a family there, I suspect some of his descendents are still there. Benjamin left this area, I think after his wife died, he had two children, and went "back" to Union County KY.
I would like to compare notes on this family while they were in Platte County MO, and can share notes on Benjamin in his later life. If you are researching either brother, please get in contact with me
