Sixth Generation


125. Jesse Lee MABRY120,131 was born on 5 May 1834 in Grayson County, Virginia.121 He died on 8 February 1911 at the age of 76 in Appleton City, St Clair County, Missouri.

The McColman book states that the mother-in-law was living with Jesse & Elizabeth in the 1900 census, and she had the surname Piper. The Illinois marriage database does not list a marriage for a Jesse or J. Mabry [any spelling] to a lady named Elizabeth. He had already had two children born in Illinois by 1869, when he and his brother Joshua Patrick sold the land left them in their father's will to Christopher Turman. Jesse was in Hancock Co IL for the 1870 census, but Bates Co MO in 1880 and 1900.

I did find the family in 1880 in Bates Co MO. It's interesting that Jesse gave his place of birth as "West Virginia" which is what my great, great grandmother stated about her place of birth. They weren't born in "West" Virginia, but certainly they were born in western Virginia. The first child born in Missouri was Alice, born 1874.
