Hall, Peery, Keech families -- Cedar County, MO
Posted by: Judith White (ID *****4100) Date: December 16, 2009 at 21:41:36
  of 633

In 1887 there was an ongoing court case in Cedar County, Missouri, Circuit Court as follows:

Land at issue: SW of the NW of Sec 28, T35, R25
Plaintiff: Nancy Peery & her husband Thomas
Defendants: Daniel Keech; James W. Hall; Thomas Hall's widow & their children.

What I am trying to figure out is how these families are connected. I am hoping that someone with some insight into possibilities or with specific knowledge about these families might be able to help.

Daniel Keech has an undivided 2/5 interest in the land at issue; Nancy Peery has a 1/5 interest; James W. Hall has a 1/5 interest; and Thomas Hall's widow and children have a 1/5 interest. I understand the connection between everyone except Daniel Keech. Nancy Peery, James W. Hall, and Thomas Hall all appear to be the children of a Joseph A. Hall who was in St. Clair County.

Here are the approximate ages of these folks (gleaned from census records, death certificates, etc.)
Daniel Keech, born 1824 New York
Nancy Hall Peery, b 3/9/1847 Missouri; died 1932 St. Clair County, Missouri
James W. Hall, born about 1857 Missouri; death ??
Thomas M Hall, born about 1848/49 Missouri; died prob in New Mexico between 1883 & 1888
Joseph A. Hall, b about 1821 KY, may have died 1860/1869 in St. Clair County, MO

At the time of the court case, Daniel Keech/Keach had been married for approximately 20 years to his second wife, Mahala Trent, daughter of John Trent. Daniel Keech/Keach had been married previously to a Clarissa _____ ; he and Clarissa had daughters born between 1845 & 1860 as follows: Catherine, Betsy, Mary, Persella, Ida. Persella was married to Jonnymire Helt, and they lived very close to Daniel Keech in Cedar County. By his second wife, Mahala, Daniel had several children -- they lived in Cedar County. Daniel Keech died in 1889.
