Query: Researching the LAND/PIERCE ancestry and I have came across the name of John PIERCE who married my grandmother Emma BROCK about 1909 in Franklin County Missouri. They had one child my mother Nellie Marie PIERCE-LAND borned January 22, 1910 in Franklin County Missouri she passed away January 21, 1981. I am told that John PIERCE was married twice.

Query: I am going for a long shot here. We have been looking for my husband's great-grandmother whose name was supposedly Barbara Paralee, but she was from around your area. She would have been born around 1840. Do you have any information on a Barbara Paradee, who may have been part American Indian.
