Looking for anyone doing research on the Lathrop and Gibson families of Taney County, Missouri. Maiden names include Hodges and Cook (relatively well documented).
Norman Lathrop (b 1830's, AL?) m. Serina Hodges (b.11 Jun 1835, ??) (m. 19 Apr 1864, Christian CO, MO). Had children James Calvin (8 Aug 1866, Taney? CO, MO), Jack R. (1868), Henry Lewis (2 Feb 1872, Taney? CO, MO), possibly C.L. and Lena G. Norman seems to have died early and possibly Serina remarried (she's not indexed under Lathrop in Census'). Serina died Taney CO, MO Dec 1917.
Spencer Gibson (father possibly John) (b. 1840's, ??)m. Minerva Elizabeth Cook (b. 28 MAR 1846, Taney CO, MO)(m. March 20, 1864, Taney CO, MO). Cook family well documented back a couple generations thru TN to NC. Gibson family not documented at all, except that Spencer may have been a Taney Co Union soldier and died in 1880 in Greene CO, MO and there is a George W. Gibson on record, variously in Taney and Douglas CO. They had several children, among them daughter Alice (b. April 25, 1869) who married James Calvin Lathrop (from above)(m. October 1889, Taney CO, MO).
James C. Lathrop and Alice Gibson had at least 9 children: Myrtle (1889), Lois (1894), James C. (WWI)(1896), Lizzie (1897), Lonnig (1901), Lawrence (1903), Eva (1905), Roy (1906) and John (1910). My wife descends from Myrtle.
Am interested in ANY information about further ancestors, locations, additional children, other descendents, etc.
