Due to the age of the query, I am not sure if the information is still being sought.
I suspect that the listing of "Palmer House" is a reference to a "birth" in someone's home with the surname "Palmer."
My family has roots in New London, MO (Ralls County) and Ashley, MO (Pike County). My great-grandfather was sheriff of Ralls County. The county court house is in New London, and my great-great grandfather and family were from the area, too.
