    Hi. Julieanne again.

    Forgot to add some other details.

    Evidently there was a big earthquake in New Madrid, Missouri, in the early 1800+. Many records were destroyed.

    This was exactly when the Mormon Church was attempting to find a base in Nauvoo, Illinois.

    Have other information but there is a part of the Greene/Tefft, Tift, Tifft,Taft/Greene family that is missing from all records.

    Evidently older brother Nathan talked Alfred Tefft into giving a good deal of land to the Mormon Church. Nathan was supposedly involved with the church. Then Alfred had an aneurysm and died. Smith, leader of the Church, moved to Utah after the Church was attacked by locals.

    Do you have any information on this period?

    Best,

    Julieanne Hathaway
