Andrew Youree in TN & MO

Andrew H. Youree was b. in TN ca 1805. Sometime in the 1840s he moved with his wife and young family of five to VanBuren County, Missouri. His wife, Ann Porter, died there and he m2, a widow named Elizabeth James.

In 1858 he settled in Jackson County, Missouri. One daughter who had been enumerated in Cass County with the family, Margaret R. b. 1836 TN, was not with the family in the 1860 enumeration. Of course, she could well have married - but I have not found a marriage record for her. I would be interested to know if anyone knows anything of her.

In April 1876 Andrew H. Youree sold all of his land in Jackson County, Missouri. At that time, his wife was not included on the deed of sale which would indicate that she had already died. In a 1877 plat map, the region of Andrew's land is labelled 'A. Youree Est' - now indicating that he had died. By 3 Apr 1879 a document clearly calls him, Andrew Youree, deceased.

I have found no evidence of his death. Not in probate. Not in any church records nor in a cememtery record. I believe that all of his children (with the possible exception of Margaret mentioned above) had already died. Where did he go and what did he do after he sold his farm? Does anyone have a clue?
