Bits and pieces

  1. Hurray! My county of research is not a “burned county!” A burned county is one of hundreds (?) across the country where we have lost records over the decades because of various courthouse fires. So, hurray! Gentry County, Missouri, is not a “burned county.” It is, however a “cyclone county.” Cyclone county?  New term. Yes, we lost records because of a windstorm in 1883.  (https://www.familysearch.org/wiki/en/Gentry_County,_Missouri_Genealogy)

 

2. To clear up any confusion, Kansas, Oklahoma, is in Delaware County.
