Thanks for the reply! Before posting again, I wanted to do some more research. I believe there is a connection. Although James Edward Bouldin b. 1832 married 1858 and resided in Pettis Co, there are numerous records that indicate James Edward Bouldin b 1796 may have resided in Marion and then Howard Counties.
The Bureau of Land Managementís web site has 18 Land Patents registered to James E. Bouldin. The first three are for land purchased in1835 in Lewis Co., and list James E. Bouldin of Marion County as the purchaser. Remainder of purchases for James E. Bouldin date from 1837 to 1859 with James E. Bouldin being of Howard County (one from 1837 references James Edward Bouldin). A handful of these purchases (1843-45) include a Robert H.N. Saunders of Howard County. Land was purchased in Howard, Lewis, Pettis, St. Clair, Henry, and Benton counties.
The 1850 Howard County census is online with links from the Howard Co. GenWeb page. The online scan is difficult to read but it seems to show: James E. Bouldin age 55 born in Virgina; Malinda Bouldin age 35 (error?) born in Virgina; David Bouldin Age 22/Virginia married within the year; Rell? Bouldin age 19/Kentucky married within the year; James Bouldin age 18/Virginia; Lucinda? Bouldin age 16/Missouri; C? Bouldin age 13/Missouri; Mary V. Bouldin age 11/Missouri; and a Robert S? age 4?/Missouri.
The Lucinda (depending on handwriting) age 16 in 1850 may be the Lucie Iím looking for. Age 16 in 1850 would be 1834, my Lucie was born in January 1835. The 1860 Howard County Missouri census lists Lucie with her husband Sidney Shackelford and a C.A. Bouldin age 23/Missouri (could C.A. be the C? age 13 in 1850?). Iím not quite sure how James L. Bouldin plays into this group, but Lucie was buried with some of his young children (as well as herís) in a small Howard County cemetery.
I plan on doing additional census research next week at the regional national archives so I can get a better look at the 1850 census and check the 1860 census for any additional information.
So, are we running a parallel branch or did a leaf just bloom on the branch......
