Re: Benjamin Franklin Book Lafayette Mo

In Reply to: Benjamin Franklin Book Lafayette Mo by Linda Harvey Lindsey of 391

My G-G Grandfather Theodore Book was born in Iowa but moved to Lafayette County, Missouri. He had 4 brothers (Frank, John, Peter & William) and 1 sister (Mary). I am having a hard time figuring out how many wives Theodore actually had and where my Great Grandmother "Susie Book" fits into the picture. I do know that Theodore's last wife was Nancy Almedia "Meadie" Caughey and they had 15 children. I have also found a Theodore Book married to both Ella Boucher and Agness Bonner. I have been told that "Benjamin Franklin Book" is the son of Theodore and Agness Bonner along with 2 daughters (Clara M. & Velma Pearl). They also acknowledged that "Susie" was their sister but never mentioned if they had the same mother. I listed her under "Ella" along with Maggie & Jessie, just as a guess. I have a picture of Theodore, Meadie, Benjamin, Clara, Velma and Meadie's first child Theodore Howard. Maybe someone can shed some light on this mess. I've been toying with it for a long time.
