States: Missouri: Shelby
What railroad line was being built through Hunnewell in 1870? I am unable to locate my greatgreatgrandfather Michael Hennessy in Memphis, TN after 1867, but I found a Michael Hennessy, age 50, born Ireland, working on the railroad in Hunnewell, Shelby, MO in the 1870 census. My gggrandmother is listed as a widow by 1876, so I thought that maybe Michael died working on the railroad in Hunnewell or some point farther west. It appears that he never made it back to Memphis.
Thanks for your help.
