Clay Co., Mo -- DRENNONs

  of 117

I am a LIGON researcher... I am working on the family of Robert L LIGON who died about 1955 in Texas..
His parents were John A and Margaret Drennon LIGON... Margarets mother resided in Clay Co., Missouri..
Robert was born on OCt 1867 in Clay Co.. MO the family removed to Jackson Co Kansas in 1875 and some Drennon's may have accompanied them .. then they also removed to Barber Co., Ks in 1883 ...
Robert L's letter to his son was published in book "Just Dad" bye his son Ernest M LIGON in 1975..
Just some of the names that I have gleamed are:
Margaret's mother was a Williams as it was stated she had a brother name Bill WILLIAMS and the Drennons appeared to own their land of about 80 acrces in 1835?
Margaret had two sisters: Florence and Pierce.. I think Florence died in Texas later with her husband.. surviving.. as her husband given name was Sam ??
In 1885 Sandy Drennon was owning land in Barber Co., KS also...
A Bud Drennon married a Etta WITT in CarrollCo MO in the late 1884/4? and then resided with his mother Drennon in Clay Co for awhile.... and it appears that a Jim Munn married one of the Drennon girls also..
Roberts' uncle John Drennon and wife resided in Denison, Texas in 1885 and was working in Lumber yard as Robert attained a job with the company
Robert also mentioned that on Bob Drennon cousin was preaching in the Methodist chuch in Byers Texas in 1906 where Robert LIGON was working and living with his family...
Can anyone relate to these individuals ??? I would like further information on them...
Jerry IN Kansas
