Hi Fran and everyone else,
focusing on what other records would have been made from a death such as
probate, cemeteries, funeral homes, newspapers. DeSoto Public Library has the
Historical Societies collection of ongoing cemetery transcriptions and some
funeral home records. The gen. society, has several compiled references you may
want to check out also; you can purchase these:
Deaths from Jefferson County Newspapers 1866-1920 (books 1 & 2)
Jefferson County Missouri Death Records 1883-1892
Jefferson County Missouri Index to Probate Records (~1820-1930)
The original probate records are held at Jefferson College History Center and
are available on microfilm. They've put an index online
Index of Jefferson County, Mo. Wills 1872-1921 you will find these actual
wills in the probate files.
Although these records are not complete, I hope these help,
LaDonna (S. E. Mo.)
death records (some) can be found in the archives at jefferson college at
hillsboro and desoto public library. hope this helps you.

Subject: [MOJEFFER] Constantine PERKINS, 1832
The "Missouri Republican," published in St. Louis, on 18 Dec 1832
mentioned Constantine PERKINS as appraising the value of a stray horse
taken up by Ferdinand Hervin (no location given). Does anyone know
anything about this Constantine PERKINS?
I find this very intriguing. Jane PERKINS, daughter of John PERKINS and
widow of Elias MURRILL, married Milton BAKER in 1846 and in 1851 she
named a son Obediah Constantine BAKER. Perhaps this Constantine PERKINS
was a brother or uncle?
I have been unable to find out anything about John PERKINS or his
family. This looks like it might be a clue!!

I wanted to clarify some misconceptions on the Atlases.
The 1898 Atlas was edited by Becky Gagnon, President of the
Jefferson County Historical Society. I did some layout work on it but it
was Becky's project and she did a wonderful job.
Lisa Gendron (Thompson) did the 1876 Atlas. Again a tremendous and
I did the indexes for both the 1876 and1898 Atlas which bear my
name. These were done before I joined the society however after seeing the
wonderful work the society does I donated it to them for production and
None of us or any other society member receive money from the sale
of these books or any other books our Society sells. After production cost
the small profit we realize is used to fund other historical/genealogical
projects. We give libraries and other historical societies, cd-roms and
other various items so the public has access to them. My cemetery articles I
donate free of charge to them also. We are a non-profit organization.
As Vice President I notified the public through this forum of the
availability of these items which are of tremendous interest to historical
and genealogical researchers.
These books are an effort by all the members of the society so I
apologize if people were misled into thinking these are my books.
Also articles I wrote on the following cemeteries are available at
the De Soto Library, Northwest County Library, Festus Library, Kimmswick
Library, County Assessor's Office, and the History Center at Jefferson
College. These articles contain whatever historical and genealogical
information I could find at the time of writing them with pictures of
monuments located at time of visit.

I just recently returned from a trip to Jefferson County to research
the Richardson Family
and would like to Thank everyone on line who gave me advice as to where
to research and
I want to give Special Thanks to:
Chris Merseal at The Jefferson County Library
Loretta Ponzar at The Jefferson College Library
Betty Olson at theDe Soto Library
These three were very, very helpful in helping my friend and I find
the materials we needed
and making suggestions as to what to look for. I came home with a lot of
copies and digital pictures
to sort through and use.
I also want to Thank Dave Hallemann for his suggestions and
directions and also
for the new Atlas that he has put so much work into.
We were able to also visit the Richardson Cemetery and the
The amount of vandalism at the Richardson - Baker Cemetery is
appalling. How people could
do this, I will never understand.
Thanks again to everyone.
The settlers had to cross the Appalachians, either on foot, on horse, or by
wagon. They had to go South through the Shenandoah Valley to one of the gaps
in the mountain range, where crossing was feasible. The Cumberland Gap was one
of these. It was right on the Kentucky border.
In the 1830 Census of Jefferson Co there were John, David, and William Null, each listed as between 40 - 50. Does any have any informaation on these Families that they would share?
There were two younger Nulls, between 30 - 40 listed, but they may be Sons of the older Nulls.
If not I would appreciate any information on them as well. It seems that on the later Census several Null Families are missing. Many of the Female Nulls that wed in Jefferson Co are missing from the Census records. I know one that wed in Miller Co.
We went to a wonderful reinactment (1861-186?) in Lawrence, Mo. This week end.
In the re-inactment they spoke of coming by way of Va. to Ky. to Mo.
This seems like such a round about route to me, however
I know some of my ancestries came by way of this route.
I would love to hear from others as to to the why's and where's and so on.
I know the river played a big part.
