I am Looking for City or Town Directories for Excelsior Springs, & Fishing River, Ray, Missouri, MO area 1882-1905 time period. I have relatives that lived off and on there and had many relatives that came and lived with them at times. Any land records or books that might have residents names with addresses would be great.
1880 they are living in Leavenworth, KS but in 1900 in Fishing River, Ray, Missouri, USA it lists husband and wife but shortly after the census is taken the wife dies. It does list they had two children but not living so curious if the children died at birth or later.
Husband: Jacob L. or C. Weber/Webber b. 1837 in OH (Blacksmith or Iron)
Wife: Nancy (Neille) Scranton b. 1842 MO d. July 19, 1900
Other related people around her:
Sister : Anna Simpson & husband William H. Simpson would live up there
Sister: Olive Tyler/ Olive Primrose(2nd marriage)
Mother to Nancy: Emily Scranton b. 1806 PA d.1886 approx. ?
I do know Jacob is married about one month later (strange) Nancy is buried Old Union Cemeteryhttp://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=15...
Any paper resource is greatly appreciated I'm really stuck what their lives were like once they left KS! I do have some newspapers from KS that discuss sisters meeting up in Excelsior Springs, Mo area for health.
