Early Pioneers/Settlers to Shiloh, Little Black Community, Ripley County, Mo

The family lines I am researching are:

Borth, McKinney, Sharp, Magee, Odom and Emmons.

I am attempting to put together information about the earliest settlers and pioneer families who lived in the Shiloh, Little Black River Community, in Jordan Township, Ripley County, Missouri, in the Ozark Foothills. Some were included in the 1840 census, before the Civil War. Others came later.

The population consisted of German, Irish, English, Scotch, French, Swiss, and Austrian families. All lived in the Shiloh, Little Black River Community. I'm sure this is not a complete list. These were the names my mother, who was a Borth, remembered immediately.

Emmons, Odom, Sharp, McKinney, Borth, Ezell, Barnett, Gibson, Tyson, Skaggs, Hopkins, Rodgers, Davis, Saboski, Abbots and Boyers. Mom said there was also a Patterson family who lived closed to Highway 21, further away from the Shiloh Community.

My goal is to include everyone who lived in the immediate area. These families seem to have been forgotten in most historical references and need to be included as early settlers and pioneers to the area.

Any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
