From Obituaries unless otherwise noted, [note from NORA O. REED]

As stated before, the accuracy of these dates & names depend on how well the transcriptions were written and read.  Transcribed from micro-filmed newspapers published in S. E., MO, mostly Wayne County. 

Some marriage dates were checked against what Beulah (Twidwell) Davis, (BTD) listed in her Family Book, pub. in 1974 and noted if different.  I also included some marriage dates that I found in other states & counties if the family settled in Wayne Co., MO. Dwc


* Appears where the date is 1892 or later.  My comments are in brackets & italics.  Dwc
