So very nice to hear from Aunt Mattie's descendents. I remember her well. She visited in our home often when I was young. Her son, Cletus, lived with us off and on all my growing up. Cletus died and is buried in Mexico. I found her husband's, Charles Evert Manning, grave in Arkansas. Aunt Mattie was a sister to my grandmother, Mary Arbella Stewart. On the 1900 census it states Martha Elizabeth Cookston was the mother of 10 with 8 living. I knew all the eight as a child. I found 2 graves near Puxico of babies that fit into skips in the order of the eight but have not been able to prove them. I also have a copy of the homestead paper of Aaron Cookston, Martha Elizabeth's father. Let me know how to send you what info I have.
