I'm searching for information on the Jonathan Hildreth Family. They had moved to Lewis Co., MO in about 1835. They came from KY. There, Jonathan Hildreth, his wife Mary Ann (Brannian) Hildreth, their two sons John Henry (1832 KY), William Jefferson(1834 Ralls Co., MO). Jonathan may have been a farmer or rancher. Two more children were born to them Harriet (1835 Lewis Co.MO) and Robert More(1939 MO).
Apparently Jonathan died in June 1838. In 1849 the two older sons went west to the gold fields. In 1865, son William J returned to MO. He married a Florence Bevans and they along with Williams mother, sister, and her family, and Robert and his family traveled by wagon train to California. I am looking for any relatives of Jonathan Hildreth
