Looking for a John Martin Davis married to Henrietta Ontis in Stoddard Co 1878, they are on census there in 1880 but disappear afterwards. Maybe this is why:
Stoddard Co., Missouri Circuit Court Records Index 1836 -1951
These are Cases Brought by the State of Missouri
Davis, John M. Indictment Plea of not guilty; jury acquitted G341 4 Sep 1879
Davis, Martin Indictment Plea guilty; 2 yrs in Pen L346 11 Sep 1886.
Apprecviate any help on these, thanks!
