I also have a copy of Jonas Scrogham will and it list all of these children except for the 2 children who died shortly after birth.
I also have a copy of Jonas obit & it reads as follows :
Jonas Scrogram Dies
Jonas Perry Scrogham, 73, a retired farmer of the Harrisonville area died Saturday night at Kings's Daughter Hospital.
Survivors include six sons, Jesse, George, Henry, and Chester Scrogham, all of Shelby Co., and J.T. and Orvie Scrogham, both of Louisville; three daughters, Mrs. Willis Mills, Borden, Ind.; Mrs. Cail Goodlett, Mount Eden, and Mrs. Stanley McGaughey, Harrisonville; two sisters, Mrs. Isaac Richardson and Mrs. L.T. Richey, both of Shelbyville; two brothers, Willie and Thomas, Mount Washington; 47 grand -
children, and 22 great - grand- children.
Funeral services were at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, June 26 at Briar Ridge Christian Church.
I think June 26 in his obit is a error, because everything I have found shows he died June 30. If he is buried at Briar Ridge he does not have a tombstone. I have not begin to work on Jonas and his children, but I am working on his sisters and brothers. Please email me at if you have more questions. Betty
