Hello List: Would some kind soul be able to shed some light on my problem. My
gr.grandfather John Wm. Bailey married Susan Ramsey in Davis Co., next door
to Appanoose Co. Some family members have their marriage date as 1847, 1848,
& 1849. I have a copy stating the JP married them on Dec.13,1849. However, at
the top, it is dated 1848. Their first child was born in Appanoose Co., Dec.
6th or 7th of 1849. I feel they may have been married in 1848, and the
marriage was RECORDED in 1849. I was wondering if there might have been a
newspaper clipping confirming their marriage date. Does anyone have any
suggestions on how I can verify the correct date? Thanks for any help, hints
anyone might have.

OLD MINERS OF 50 YEARS AGO LISTED
Mining, which is called Appanoose county's major industry, has been going on in the county for over half a century. Today David Dinning, well known resident of Centerville, recalls men, who he remembers as mining coal here here 50 years ago. While the following list is not probably a complete one of those who started mining here 50 years ago, and who still live here, it comprises as many of them as Mr. Dinning recalls when he was a youthful man of the mines.
Woody Glaskcock of Cincinnati, M. E. Carter of Cincinnati, David Dinning of Centerville, Charley Brunow of Centerville, Matt Shanks of Centerville, Dan O'Hair, John Holman, and George Bever of Centerville, Frank Scott of Centerville, Fred Westerdale of Centerville, Tom Day of Centerville, Ash Henderson of Centerville, Ike Manson of Centerville, John Martin of Mystic, K. Maxwell of Centerville, and David Steele of Cincinnati.
Hello to all on the list. Read some of old mail and was impressed. (
Hope spelling does not count)
Anyway I have Keller people who moved into Appanoose Co. in 1868. The
came from Pendleton Co West Virginia. I have a large notebook full of
stuff but have a hard time finding things in it. I'm most interested to
know if anyone has any information on a Porter family that lived near
Numa. There is an Edward Porter burried in Numa cemetery. ?? I ask
because my G.Grandfather Jessie Keller married a Susan Porter there in
Appanoose Co. in the year of 1869. I have searched a lot of years for
family of Susan and have found none.
My name is Bilie Jane Mc Inerney and I live and work in Yuma, AZ a
transplant from Gresham, Or via Seattle, WA. Love it down here- most of
the time. Last monday was one day I could have done without when the
temps went to 117. Oh well.
