I have an extensive HEATH database now, and lots of information for descendants of the Heath family in Missouri. One item of interest that I have not seen posted elsewhere concerns Calloway Green Heath who lived in Benton Co. MO and later moved to CA. An old trunk was found in CA with contents concerning the family. One item of interest for Foster researchers may be that it stated that in addition to their own children they raised another child named as a 'cousin' of Milly Holloway: a Louisa Ann FOSTER born 11 Feb 1857. I do not know who this is or why she came to be raised by them, but figure someone out there working on the Fosters of Benton County may want to know.
Also--the 2nd biggest item of interest is that everyone has posted that Calloway Green Heath only married once. In fact I found a marriage record for him for 8 June 1897 in Santa Barbara, CA. At age 67 he married again--to Brunetta (Stewart) Heath Parks, the widow of Calloway G Heath's younger brother Jonas B Heath Jr. Brunetta Heath had married 2nd Overton Parks 8 Mar 1891 in Benton County, but the marriage obviously didn't last. She must have taken off to visit out in CA and married Calloway Green Heath. However this marriage also did not last. She was back in Benton Co MO by the 1900 census living in the household of her married daughter Ella (Heath) Autrieth.
The documents in the old trunk verified Calloway's middle initial G was for 'Green'. If anyone is researching the Heaths or their related marriages, please email me firstname.lastname@example.org
I've also been working on collecting as many old photographs as I could of the family.
