States: Missouri: Saint Francois
I recently found on the Randolph TWP, St. Francois Co., Mo. 1910 census that my husband's great-grandmother Melvine Lands (nee Massey), was married in between the two husbands I knew of 1) William Lands and 2) Valentine Hughes from Reynolds Co., Mo. Her actual 2nd husband is listed on the 1910 census as Henry Shrader, who is the father of two sons, Herman and Sherman, ages 9 & 6. He is also listed on the same census as step-father to my husband's grandfather, Sebern Lands, spelled Sebourn on the census, and Sebern's sister, Pearl Radford. Henry and wife Mell? are posted as the second spouse for each of them. I am assuming he was either divorced when they married, or more likely he was a widower, as both sons are living with him. I cannot find him in the 1920 census, and until finding him on the 1910 censu, had never heard of him. Does anybody out there know of any Shraders who lived in the Elvins area, or of either Henry, Herman or Sherman? Thank you.
