>From Missouri Marriages records online at Ancestry.com, there is a marriage record between John Liverar under 21 years of age and Miss Lucinda Rogers under 18 years of age, that took place 26 Feb 1898.
The record states they were married at his parents house.
The record also states that John's father was Lucien Liverar and that Lucinda's father was Mendeth Rogers.
I taking that Lucinda's father was Meredith Rogers.
However, on the 1900 census, Lucinda last name is show as Rodgers is living with her Mother Emily, and the census has Lucinda as being single.
However, in her Mother's probate record dated 1933, Lucinda is shown as Lucinda Lavier and living in St. Louis.
However, after 1900, Lucinda disappears from her mother's residence, I can't find her. I have used variations of the name Liverar, Lavier.
Does anybody have any suggestions on how I could possibly locate Lucinda ?

I am searching for an address or location in Eureka, MO. I know that is not Jefferson County, but it is the former home of Thomas Lemoine Roques and Lydia Bonacker Roques. They lived in Eureka but farmed in Meramec Township, Jefferson County. In 1918, they lived on RFD # 18, Eureka. I don't know if the town grew around this address, but during the 1920s they had a home in Eureka. The house was still there as late as the 1960s. Any help would be appreciated.
