I was born and raised in Southwest Missouri. Most of my mother’s ancestry can be traced through Polk County including Bolivar and Wishart and other nearby counties. In addition several of my husband’s lines can be traced in Crawford and Franklin Counties including the cities of Bourbon, Cuba and Sullivan. In researching our family history for the past 18 years I have acquired many items that might be of interest to others. In addition I have taken pictures and researched many of the areas where my ancestors lived. This web site is a compilation of all of the information I have obtained over the years.
