Timeline & Unsolved Mysteries
The family can be placed in Clark and Madison Counties, KY from 1809 through 1825, by marriage records.
Benjamin and Ann apparently moved to MO fairly soon after their marriage. They were in Howard Co. by the time of Malinda's birth in 1837. Benjamin probably died in the late1830s as his will is listed in an online index of a book that covered only through 1842.
Ann FILBERT was enumerated in Buchanan Co. MO in 1840, as Head of Household with 6 children. The four children for whom I have birth dates can be matched with the ages shown on that census.
On Nov. 2, 1842 Ann married Berry PRESTON in Buchanan Co. MO. Some BEERY researchers list Marinda's maiden name as PRESTON, rather than FILBERT, so she apparently used her step-father's name.
Malinda FILBERT married T. C. FRIEND on March 16, 1854 in Worth Co., MO. Their first child was born in Gentry Co., the following December.
