Thank You so much for the info and input. I just seen your post back. For some reason I don't get my reply notices from the message boards.
I'm trying to piece together the BEGGS line that went to Scott Co, MO.
I'm also trying to find out who the parents are of William Arthur BEGGS born May 11, 1871 died December 03, 1949 in Scott Co, MO. His death certificate shown both parents are unknown. And he was married to Mary Melissa CAPPS who he married in 1897 Scott Co, MO.
I found a Lewis/Louis Calvin BEGGS born August 30, 1858
Johnson County, Illinois who died April 21, 1924 in Dunklin Co, MO.
I was wondering if maybe this could be his Father since W. A. BEGGS from Morley,Scott Co, Mo. was the informant on his death certificate.
I can't find this Lewis/Louis Calvin BEGGS on the 1880 census to see if he did have a son named William A. BEGGS.
I have Lewis parents as Alexander "Alex" BEGGS and Apsilla/ Aprilla BRIDGES.
Just so many of them running around.
I wrote all this in case someone else reads this also and they connect.
