Cartwrights - Stoddard Co., MO

Classification: Query
Surnames: Curtwright, Cartwright, Hollis, Matthews
I have the following information that I have found in the census records:

1860 Stoddard Co., MO Census
Emily A. Curtwright (age 28) head, born in TN
James W. (age 12) son, born in MO
Samuel (age 8) son, born in MO

1870 Stoddard Co., MO Census
James Cartwright (age 21) head, born in MO
Rowena (age 22) wife, born in MO
James (age 1) son, born in MO

1880 Stoddard Co., MO Census
J.W. Cartwright, age 31, born in MO
Roena O., age 32, born in MO
William, age 11, born in MO
Mary A., age 7, born in MO
Nancy E., age 4, born in MO

1910 Stoddard Co., MO Census
James T. Cartwright, age 41, born in MO
Elizabeth, age 37, born in IL
Stella M., age 12, born in MO
Andrew W., age 8, born in MO
Delus L., age 4, born in MO
Myrtle L., age 2, born in MO
Lucinda Hollis, age 16, born in MO (stepdaughter to James)

I know that there were 2 other children born to James T. and Elizabeth after 1910 - Novella (born 1911) and Delbert M. (born 1915). James T, Elizabeth, and Myrtle died in 1917-1918.

Based on census records, I believe that Rowena O. Cartwright is the daughter of James M (or N) Hollis and Mary P. Unknown. I have both the Hollis family and the Cartwright family until 1880 in the Stoddard Co., MO census records, however, I lose them after that until 1910 when James T. and his family appear in the 1910 records. I do know that Elizabeth Matthews Hollis Cartwright was married to Peter R. Hollis (Rowena's brother) before she married James Cartwright. The marriage record for James and Elizabeth Cartwright lists their names as William Cartwright and Lizzie Hollis.

It is also possible that this Cartwright family came from TN or NC. Emily A. Curtwright was born in TN but I have no record of a husband for Emily and I lose her and Samuel after the 1860 census. At this point I'm stuck until I can determine what Emily A. Curtwright's maiden name was, who she was married to and where the family came from originally. Can any one help???
