I am seeking the family of George W. PUGH born in 1831 in Indiana, whom
our family tradition says came to the Joplin area following the Civil
War. George's first wife, Julia A. CROUSORE, died in about 1865 in
Indiana. George didn't appear in the 1870 Indiana census, but his
youngest two children, Albert & James PUGH, can be found living near
Kokomo in Howard County, Indiana with their grandfather Jacob CROUSORE
and their aunt, Anna CROUSORE. By 1890 George W. PUGH was found in the
St. Joseph, Missouri city directory. George died in 1895 and is buried
in the old St. Joseph City Cemetery. George's second wife Mary A. PUGH
showed up on the Buchanan County, Missouri tax rolls in 1896-1905. Mary
is shown as having been buried next to George in City Cemetery in
1912. I suspect that George may have been in
Missouri in the 1870 time frame looking for a new situation while his
youngest children remained in Indiana with their grandparents.
George had five children by his first wife. These are John, Alfred,
Caroline, Albert and James. Mary had one child by her first husband
shows up in the records. This child is Josephine ASHENFELTER. George
and Mary had two other children, Harrison L. PUGH and Edwin S. PUGH.
Of George PUGH's children, John PUGH was living in Nebraska City, Otoe
County, Nebraska in 1904. Alfred PUGH worked in Joplin as a roundhouse
foreman, and in 1882, in Nevada, Vernon County, Missouri married a
Henrietta D. "Etta" NORRIS possibly from the Joplin area. They had two
sons (Shirley and Nathan). Alfred PUGH and his wife moved to Bluffton,
Wells County, Indiana in 1890 where he died in 1904. Caroline PUGH
moved back to Muncie, Delaware County, Indiana where she met John BUCK.
In 1880 she married BUCK and lived her life in Bluffton as the wife of a
leading industrialist. They had three children (Roland Carlton, Clyde
and Alline). Caroline died in 1939 in Angola, Steuben County, Indiana.
In 1904, Albert PUGH resided in Moscow, Oklahoma, but eventually
returned to Indiana and is buried in Bluffton. Josephine married a Mr.
HACKNEY. In 1904 she was living in St. Joseph, but she eventually moved
to Seattle, where she was still living in 1939.
Harrison PUGH married and had three children (Izita, Nellie & James) but
his wife died early. Harrison was still living in 1904. Nothing is
of the other children but that John PUGH and his half brother Edwin PUGH
were still alive in 1904.
I would be eager to connect with anyone who can help fill in some of the
missing pieces of this story.

Hello, I just joined this list. I am wondering if there is anyone in Nebraska City who is willing to take headstone pictures in Wyuka Cemetery? I have a request under:
but there are no volunteers for Nebraska City listed there. I also looked under Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness and there are no volunteers there either. Since I live in Oregon, it's doubtful I'll be able to research these. I am also willing to reimburse for costs.
Reseaching: GOFF and HARDING in Nebraska City.
