Would like to make contact with anyone related to or having info on the following couple: John W. Revels and Tempea C. McCord were married in Balltown (Vernon county) Mo on the 16 of March 1865. The Bible record in possession of my brother-in-law lists one page of marriages performed by Rev. John W. Revels performed in Barry County, Mo in 1889. Children listed for this couple were: William J., born Nov 22, 1865; Mary J, b. Nov 21, 1867; Eddie Mc(Cord?), born Sept 16, 1869; David Frankling, born Jan 23, 1871; John Willey, born Dec 3, 1873; Salaman, born Aug 1875; Cort, born Nov 15, 1876/78; Nettie C., born Jan 25, 1879; Hurman, born Jul 29, 1881; Claria E., born Sept 21, 1883; Joseph E., born Jan 28, 1886; Maud D. May, born 1888; Harrison E., born May 29, 1890.
It is not known if the Maud D. May was a child, granchild or foster child. Because my brother-in-law's grandmother was named Maud May or Maud Mode and married to James Newton "Newt" Johnson and they had their first several children in Barry county, Mo, AND this family Bible record was in her daughter's possession as part of her mother's stuff, we are quite mixed up about who she really was and what was her connection to the Revels family. Newt Johnson's father, Jair W. Johnson was from Greene co, Pa, served in the Civil War out of Marshall Co, W.Va, and then lived for some time in Barry county Mo before going to Cherokee county, Ks. In Cherokee County, Ks records, we find several listing for Revell families. Is there some connection? We would be very grateful for correspondence with anyone on these families. Thank you.
