There is a Fannie Watts as a visitor and an "aunt" in the family of John T. Dysart in the 1880 census at:

"A Family Portrait" byKate Stamper Wilhite. She
put this book together about her family and
published it in 1987. I am sure that she gave a
copy to the Moberly library. In it on the third
page from the back is a picture of Howard A
Stamper, his wife Beulah and children, Bill
{who is the William Stamper I met here in
Springdale}, Jane who married a Lake,
and John Stamper.

Beulah SELF was born on 27 Jun 1914. She died in Jun 1985 in St. Louis, , Missouri. Beulah married Howard A. STAMPER.

Dates are from SSDI and it is thought that they apply to this person.

In the book " Missouri Miscellany Vol. 14"

Mentions a Fielding Wilhite as a minister in Boone Co. 1820-1841. There's also mention of a marriage of an Elizabeth and an Eliza Wilhite in this county, if you need that info let me know... I also find Wilhite marriages in Clay Co.

Here is a marriage in Boone Co. I think might interest you because of the names you mentioned. 1841-1849 Boone Co. marriages

8 Feb. 1849 John S. Wilhite - Nancy B McQuitty

12 Oct. 1848 Smith Wilhite - Rebecca Grant

In Mo. Pioneers Vol. 30 Howard Co. Mo. Petition of Inhabitants of Howard Land Dist. 23 Dec 1819. Fieldin Wilhite is on this list.

This was in Chariton Co:


The Baptist Church of Keytesville was organized in 1848 by Revs. David ANDERSON, Thos. FRISTOE and Fielding WILHITE with Richard LONG and wife, Benjamin CARTER and wife, Robt. ELLIOTT and wife, Thos MCCART and wife, and Alton F. MARTIN as charter members. The first pastor of the organization was Rev. David ANDERSON. Services were then held monthly in a grove near the residence of the late Caswell COURTNEY, 2 1/2 miles north of town, but were afterwards held at the school house, court house and other public buildings of the town until 1857, when the Presbyterian church shared the use of their building with them until the erection of their own edifice in 1882. This building is a nice frame structure and originally cost $2,000. It was dedicated in August '82. by the Rev. W. Pope YEAMAN. Richard LONG was the first clerk of the church and was succeeded by Jackson J. MILLS. "Uncle" Thos J. ELLIOTT, the gentleman to whom we are indepted for these facts, was clerk from 1853 to 1874, while at present C. A. CHAPMAN acts as clerk. The present membership is about 130. Services are held upon the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month, Rev. C. F. D. ARNOLD of Lathrop, Mo., being the pastor in charge."

The below is from: "History of Boone Co. MO" Originally published in 1882, Indexed Edition,
reprinted 1970, Ramfre Press, Cape Girardeau MO, pp 992-994, Country Churches, Old Bethel, Now Walnut Grove.

"The first church building occupied by the old Bethel congregation was built of logs, sometime in 1818, and this was used until the separation in 1835, after which it was worshipped in by the antimissionary or Old School Baptists and the Presbyterians for some time. The pulpit, as stated, was supplied by Rev. William Tharp, from the first organization until 1820, when the regular pastor, Rev. Thos. Campbell, was installed. He resigned in 1929 and Fielding Wilhite became his successor.

The first cemetery in Boone Co. was old Bethel burying ground, located near where the church stood on the southern border of Perche Twp. The first interment therein was that of a man named Payson in 1818. The cemetery contains some 300 graves, but for a long time has not been used, and is now in the centre of a pasture.

The congregation worshipped in harmony until 1835, when occurred the dissension in regards to foreign missions. The anti-missionary Baptists withdrew, and the remainder, to the number of about 40, formed the Walnut Grove Baptist church. Among the constitutional members, as well as can now be remembered, were Fielding Wilhite, William Wilhite and wife, William
Pullman and wife, Reuben Elliott and wife, Tyre Harris and wife, Elijah Dale and wife, Geo. W. McQuitty and wife, Zachariah Burnett and wife, Newman T. Mitchell and wife, Isaac Doty and wife, and Henry Dooley.

In 1836 William Wilhite donated one acre of land for the present cemetery and church site (which has been increased to about 3 acres) whereon a stand was erected and where the first services were held, conducted by the pastor, Rev. Fielding Wilhite and Revs. A. P. Williams and Thos. Fristoe. The first meetings were protracted, sometimes for a period of 2 weeks. When the weather was inclement the meetings were adjourned to ... the Presbyterian church in Rocheport.

In 1838 the congregation erected a brick church building, 20 by 50' and of moderate height, plainly but substantially finished and furnished. Here services were held until 1847 when the present church was built. It is a frame, 40 by 60 in area and 18' in height, without spire or bell. Within the same inclosure and contiguous to the church is Walnut Grove cemetery. The first interments therein were those of Mrs. Enoch Taylor in 1836 and Sampson Wilhite, Sr., in 1837. Subsequently more than 200 graves have been added. As no records have ever been kept, many of these graves cannot be identified...

The first pastor of Walnut Grove was Rev. Fielding Wilhite, who began his labors in Old Bethel in 1829 and closed them in Walnut Grove church in 1844...The church and cemetery are located about the center of section 29, twp. 49, range 14."

Wilhoite, John B. Longan, Thomas Fristoe, Colden Williams, and Kemp Scott. Surely any association might be proud to have in its minutes such a list of ministers. Here were the men, in a large measure responsible for the preaching of the gospel in the early days in central and north Missouri, and who took an active part, later in the formation of the new Central Society.>

Elizabeth MCQUITTY was born in 1802 in St. Louis, , Missouri. She married Fielding WILHITE Rev..

Sampson WILHITE [Parents] was born on 2 Mar 1769 in , Culpeper Co., Virginia. He died on 26 Nov 1837 in Rocheport, Boone Co., Missouri. Sampson married Hannah Elizabeth JACKMAN on 22 Dec 1793.

Came to MO from VA in 1818. Got the following email from Louise Douglas Hudspeth [email protected] in 3/99:

John, Wilhite is not one of my lines, but Fielding and Sampson Wilhite are Boone county names. In fact, Boone county was and is full of Wilhites, some of which married into various lines of mine. I would recommend looking at Switzler's History of Boone County, MO. On p. 996, Fielding Wilhite is mentioned as the first pastor of Walnut Grove church, who first began his labors in Old Bethel in 1829, and closed them in Walnut Grove church (Baptist-northeast of Rocheport) in 1844. [At some point, members of Old Bethel church split over the question of sending missionaries, and some of them--pro missionary--started Walnut Grove church.] Old newspapers at the Historical Society on campus here in Columbia will have lots of Wilhite information, too. The McQuitty name appears throughout Switzler's book, as well.

PP. 980-981 of Switzler: "Among the first settlers of this township [Missouri Township, Boone County--[still in Howard County until 1820] were members of the Wilhite family. Sampson Wilhite and his three sons, William, Stephen and Fielding Wilhite, came from Kentucky to this township (then Howard county) as early as the year 1818. They located in the neighborhood of Rocheport, where many of their descendants yet live [written in 1882]. They were all farmers. Stephen Wilhite was a blacksmith as well as a farmer; Fielding Wilhite was a farmer and a Baptist minister. All of them lived reputable lives and died full of years and honors. Probably the first loom was brought into the township by Mrs. Sampson Wilhite in 1818. The greater part of the clothing for families was carded, spun and woven by the female members, and was usually made up of wool and flax; the latter being among the first crops raised. The first brick house in the township was built by Sampson Wilhite in the year 1822. It is still standing and is the housenow occupied by J. E. Hart, four miles from Rocheport, on the Sturgeon road."

Kate Stamper Wilhite gave his wife as Alice McKinney, but I have changed it to the current one on the word of a couple of others.

Hannah Elizabeth JACKMAN was born about 1770. She married Sampson WILHITE on 22 Dec 1793.

Nickname of "Fanny."

They had the following children:
