    I am a descendant of Sarah Cordelia Morris and James Robert Cearnal. You can find her death record on the website of the Missouri State Archives. She died of interstitial nephritis and is buried in Fasken Cemetery in Jasper Co., Mo.

  2. Is there any way we at the White RIver Valley Historical Society in Forsyth, Missouri ~ in which county Bull Mills originally was ~ obtain a copy of Wm. Cearnal’s payment voucher for his time at the Bull Mills Post Office. ~ Brad Melton, Powersite, MO @ mbrad45@hotmail.com
