At this point, I feel the best source of information for you would be the U.S. census. They were living in Newton Co MO in 1910, and in Barry County MO in 1920.
The census can be viewed on the Internet, but you need to subscribe to a "pay" site. Of the three most popular census subscription sites, the one that I use the most is Genealogy.com (http://www.genealogy.com
). They seem to have the best index and the easiest downloading of the documents. If you'll send me your e-mail addy (send to firstname.lastname@example.org
), I can copy and send you those pages in a PDF (Acrobat) file, but you really should look at the entire area near where they were living for other family members.
Meanwhile- if you haven't already done so, set up one of the genealogical data base programs on your computer- Family Tree Maker, Personal Ancestral File (downloads at http://www.familysearch.org/
), Legacy or one of the many others and start by entering your information, then add what you find to it. ALWAYS CITE YOUR SOURCE! You may "think" that you will forever remember exactly where you got the information- and you are dead WRONG! Take it from someone who knows! <grin>
There are many other Missouri records that may help you- . I would start with "Pioneers of Six Bulls"- 40 volumes of the area around Newton County; "Missouri Pioneers" and "Missouri Miscellany'"- a combined total of 42 volumes of information; "Southwest Missouri Newspaper Extractions", and many, many more.
regards, and good luck!
