Jerry, Here is the continuation of the paragraph on Christopher C.: He was educated in the common schools, and grew to years of maturity on the farm. In 1873 he married Miss Mary Dollar, who was born in Bollinger County, MO., in 1854, and who is the daughter of William Dollar. To this marriage were born five children who are named as follows; James, Jonathan, Minnie, William and Mary. After his marriage Mr. Dennis farmed for then years, and in 1884 he began mining in Mine La Motte. In 1885 he and R. Boram formed a parnership in the real estate and exchange businss in Fredericktown, MO and at the end of two years Mr. Boram withdrew and in September, 1887, Mr. Dennis and Br. Frank Schulte formed a partnership in the same business, in which they have since continued. Mr. Dennis is a young man of good business capacity and a man of good character. He is a Republican and cast his first presidential vote for R. B. Hayes in 1876. He and his wife are members of the Baptist Church.

Shew! I didn't proof read so I hope it's close enough. This is a wonderful book that I found. I wasn't much help to me but I've been able to help alot of other people. At least it is something to do instead of hitting the old brick wall some more.
My grandparents lived in Fredericktown. I traveled there two years ago and loved it. The people were wonderful. Some of my line that is still there would be Frey, Stone, Baker, Tucker, Lincoln, Head, Williams, and others that have left the area.
I'm glad you could use the info. If ever I run across anymore, I'll send it on. Marcy
