 What relation was SARAH HENSLEY, age 12 in the 1850 Cedar Co., Mo.,     Census to the LaFORCE family with whom she resided? Was Samuel LaForce's wife her much older sister? About 1856 SARAH HENSLEY married DANIEL ROARK, who was born in 1812--she was born in 1838. They had three children all still minors when DANIEL died during the Civil War and when SARAH died in 1867 in Nebraska. (Daniel had been married twice previously and had several other children) By 1870 the three minor children of DANIEL and SARAH are back in Polk Co., Mo., where son ALLEN THOMPSON LINCOLN ROARK is living with the family of WM. J. HENSLEY in Dwelling 264 in Looney Township. ALLEN is listed in the census only as ALLEN THOMPSON, but this is incorrect, as proven by several affidavits in the 1812 record of DANIEL ROARK. That child's name was: ALLEN THOMPSON LINCOLN ROARK The other two minor children were KIZZIAH JANE, b. 1858 in Benton Co., Ark., who married JOSEPH PITMAN, son of A. J. PITMAN. They resided in Polk Co. The other minor child was BENJAMIN FRANKLIN ROARK, who was b. 23 Jan. 1860 in the eastern part of Cedar Co., Mo. (pursuant to affidavit of the midwife who delivered him). He married 28 Feb. 1888 to MARTHA JANE WILEY, of Polk Co., daughter of JOHN WILEY and SUSAN ALICE TITUS, and granddaughter of ALEXANDER WILEY and LOUISIANA HOUSE. Very interested in the connection between the HENSLEYS and the LaFORCE families, but also work on and will assist anyone with the ROARKS or other families mentioned here.

KIME-RYAN-BETHELL-BRUCE  Alfred KIME-RYAN: A real mystery family! We have a bible record showing the names, birth, marriage records of the Kime family who lived in Vernon Co MO at the beginning of the Civil War. Alfred KIME(s) married 12 Aug 1858 in Vernon Co MO to Leanner (Leanora), dau of William BETHELL and Margaret BRUCE. For some unknown reason, the entire family started using the name of RYAN between 1860/1870, and this name continued even through their  relocation to Indian Territory in 1892 and deaths in Oklahoma. Does anyone know any possible reason for this change of names? When Alfred KIME married Leanner BETHELL, he had other children;  (no sex indicated in bible records); C. E. (b/7 Jan 1852); W. R. (b/8 Sep 1854); and S. L. (b/2 Apr 1856).

Two of my gg-grandfathers, Polemon Louden LONG, and John C. CAMPBELL came to the Cedar Co., MO and Vernon Co., MO area in the 1840's and 1850'. My g-grandfather, John Louden LONG married Mary Adaline CAMPBELL in Vernon Co. abt. 1867. My grandfather, Albert Harley LONG (b. 1869 in Virgil City, Vernon Co., MO; d. 1905 in Quincy, IL) was the oldest of their seven children. John CAMPBELL's father-in-law, and my ggg-grandfather, Alexander CLENDENIN also migrated to Montevallo Twp., Vernon Co. in the 1850's. His wife was Mary C. FRESHWATER CLENDENIN. John CAMPBELL's wife was Sarah E. CLENDENIN CAMPBELL. I believe John CAMPBELL and a brother-in-law, William CLENDENIN, were killed in a Civil War skirmish in the area. Some of my grandfather's syblings stayed in the Vernon Co. area, and may still have kin in the area. I would appreciate any information on the LONG, CLENDENIN, and CAMPBELL families.
