I write this, hoping that you still check this site. Some time back, you offered to do look-ups for me on the ERWIN family in Rich Hill. Since my last posting here, I have found out some information that is more concrete and may help you help me, if you are still willing.
Hannah Bright Erwin, wife of John Erwin, died in Rich Hill 13 Aug. 1887. Somewhere in my mess here, I have the name of the cemetery, but can't locate it right now. Also, her son, Robert, died in Rich Hill 17 Oct., 1890. Besides those 2 deaths, there may have been a sister, Mary, who died there, as well as the marriage of Joseph Erwin & Hettie Penn, and the birth of Robert Erwin, son of William and Rosa (this Robert was nephew to the Robert who died in 1890). Any information that you might find on this family would be invaluable!! I'm hoping for obituaries that might tell what children were alive at the time of Hannah's death, if the elder Robert had been married, or had children, if there is a marriage announcement for Sarah Erwin who married a Cheviron/Sheviron, or the birth of their daughter, Lula....just about anything.
I don't know if there are any birth, death or marriage certificates available in Bates County, but if there are on any of these people (and I can give you a complete listing of the family, but don't want to overload you!!), I will gladly pay you in advance for copies and postage.
I have a brother who lives in Bolivar, just north of Springfield, and hope to take a trip to do some research on my own, but my kids are too small to be left at home, and not yet old enough to understand my fascination for family history--what they refer to as "those dead people". Hopefully, they'll appreciate it later on....
Looking forward to hearing from you!
