1886 Births Recorded in Buchanan County, Missouri

This is an abstract of birth notices published in the St. Joseph Daily Gazette on 9 January 1887, submitted by Monica Schirmer Eshelman . Please note that she mentions the dates are probably not exact as many of them appear to be born on the same day -- perhaps the date the doctor reported them? Even so, this document may hold great clues!

Death Notices in St. Joseph, Missouri Newspapers

These are abstracts of death notices in the St. Joseph, Missouri newspapers. This is an ongoing project of Monica Schirmer Eshelman, a great friend of not only the NWMGS, but also anyone who is doing research in Andrew County. If her name sounds familiar, it's not just because it's all over the site due to her contributions. The PACT Project was also her brain-child.

Our many thanks to Monica for the time and effort she put into creating these . . . and for sharing it with everybody. Happy researching!!

The Pumpkin Song

If you are a registered member of the NWMGS you can read the story about this song in the Spring 2016 edition of The Journal.
