I have just moved and all my papers are still in boxes, but I think this in a general way is the connection with your Stephen Bozarth and the Johnathan Bozarth in Stoddard County. Johnathan was a younger brother of Stephen and my Mary Ann Bozarth. This Johnathan in Stoddard County was newly married in the 1850 Census, and he and his younger sister were living on adjoining land in 1850. She was Mary Ann McCrory, wife of James. Stoddard Co. Johnathan died a few years after this census, as did James McCrory. Stephen homesteaded some land in Miller Co. by 1860, as did Mary Ann, his widowed sister. Stephen eventually went to Texas. I think he was in Texas before the Civil War got going strong in Miller Co., MO.
Gayle Rose Mark is editor of the Bozarth Beacon, and she has all this information. If you run into any McCrorys in Dunklin Co.,MO, please let me know. I'm still trying to find time and place of Mary Ann's first husband's death.
These children of Israel Bozarth were all very close, and wrote and visited each other throughout their lives. Mary Ann thought highly of her brother, Stephen Bozarth.
