Thanks a lot for the information. Alexander M Kitch (1848-1918) Is My Great Grandfather. He is buried in Steffenville,(Lewis County), Missouri along with his wife Cora Adeline Kitch. According to my Father, Harlin W. Kitch, Alexander had 5 Sons and 4 Daughters before his death. The Sons names were: Charlie, Bill, Horace, Bob, and Henry. The Daughters names were Ida, Kate, Clara, and Cora (Dolly). They are all buried in either Steffenville or Lewistown Missouri with the exception of Ida Bowen, who is buried "somewhere near Yale Oklahoma".
