Most of the lines in my mother's father's family at least passed
through Jackson County, if they didn't live there for long. On my
mother's mother's side, I have a gr gr grandfather named John Henry
Beuke (in the military records as Banke) who was from Franklin
County, Missouri and ended up in Sherman's army. He was stationed
at Bridgeport for at least six months. He probably was part of the
crowd that burned that county.
