I looked at the data that Lisa transcribed. Does anybody have any idea who the John Prewit is that was on some of the data ? Because if you bring up the 1830 census for Jefferson County, only two Prewit as shown my ggg grandfather Henry and Henry's brother David.
A new history article written by Dave Hallemann (Missouri Short Cut Canal)
has been added to the Jefferson Co., MO Historical Society site. Find it
under "History Articles" in the menu on the left.
