    NAME: Jackie Gideon Maike

    GIDEON---family and town I am researching the GIDEON family and I know that one of my ancestors spent some time in GIDEON, Missouri. He helped start what I was told was called the GIDEON/ANDERSON Box Company that was there for many years. Many years ago my father contacted someone there in GIDEON and they sent him some wonderful information on the town and the above company. But we had a fire and lost everything and I am now trying to recoup all the of the lost information. The fire was before the time of computers etc. so there were not copies floating around. Times change for the best in gerenalogy terms! If anyone can tell me where to find information, or if they have any information on the Town or the GIDEON family that spent a short time there I would deeply appreciate it. Thank you in advance----Jackie Gideon Maike

I know they were in New Madrid, Missouri on August 17, 1932; as that is the day my father, Otho Calvin Householder was born. Elbert was Flossie's 2nd husband, they had 4 children, 3 boys and 1 girl. There may have been another daughter who past away at a very young age. Flossie's first husband was Mr. Gruggett, they had two sons: Warren Gruggett - married Verdie, I don't know her maiden name. Also Uther Vance Gruggett (aka UV), UV now resides in Washington. My grandfather passed away in August, 1941, in either Arkansas or Missouri, but he is supposed to be buried in New Hope Cemetry, in Pollard, Arkansas. My Grandmother is also supposed to be buried in New Hope Cemetry, Pollard, Arkansas. She may have passed away in 1940. They say my grandfather served in WW 1, however; I can find nothing on either of these people, except my father and his siblings. All family papers were destroyed in a fire, so I have nothing to go on. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

    NAME: Jackie Humphrey

    My ancestor David Trotter was killed by Indians in 1802 in New Madrid. David Trotter was a proven settler acc. to the Am. State papers with permission of the Spanish or French Govt then in power and his heirs and ch. rec'd land when it was finally settled with the U.S., I think abt 1812.The doc. written in French states that David Trotter came from KY and owned land in KY. Further research showed me that he was from the Fayette/Bourbon Co KY Trotter family that came from Augusta Co. VA.
    Trotter may have had a trading post, but that was not stated. I just wonder how he could sell liquor if he didnt have a store. I have the dimensions of the house and what was on the first and the second floor. He had sold liquor to Indians previously and was told by the other inhabitants not to do it again. When the Indians arrived at his house, he told them that he was not allowed to sell them liquor and they killed him. Some of the Indians were captured and one of them was shot, Tewaneye. This was done with the permission of Indian chiefs, Chief Agypousetchy and chief Kaskaloua, who took the other killers into custody to mete out their own punishment. There are other accounts of David Trotter's murder and the subsequent law that was passed because of it.
