DAVIS, HAMPTON, WATSON posted by Taleah Wilkinson on Tuesday, November 24, 1998

I am trying to help a family here in Dade County, Mo., try to locate the descendants of Lousia Alice HAMPTON Watson Davis who may have ended up in Ray County, Mo. What I'm doing is checking all the counties around where Lousia was last located. Lousia Alice HAMPTON was the daughter of John H. and Susannah Johnston HAMPTON. She was born ca 1850 in Dade County, Missouri. She married John Morgan WATSON exact date is unknown but is believed to be before 1871, they had one son Charlie A. WATSON born February 15, 1871 and died October 9, 1874 buried in Wetzel Cemetery, Dade County, Mo. They were still married in 1880, but they do not show up again in our census after 1880. The last time she shows up in Louisa Alice up in any of our records is in her sister obit. dated 1918. At this time her last name is listed as DAVIS and she is living in Sparks a subdivison of Moberly, Missouri. I thought the best thing to do is check the counties around Moberly, I'm very familiar with Ray County, so I know that Ray is near by, and that it is a farming area, just as Dade County, so I thought the family might have picked a county such as Ray as it is so much like their home county of Dade.
