Francis does not ring a bell, but I am searching for info on Rice Newnham listed in 1880 census as 41 years old, born in Kentucky. Married to a Nancy who was 38 in 1880 and born in Missouri. They had 8 children: Roberta, Margaret, Leroy, Liman, James, Ida, Garfield, and Rolla. Rice died sometime between 1880 and 1900, his wife Nancy was listed as Head of household in Carroll County, Missouri's 1900 Census. Does this ring a bell for you???? Would be happy to share info.
