48th Annual Session of the Methodist Protestant Church held at Mt. Pisgah Church in Greene Cty, MO 1914 - Published in 1914
Author J. F. Howe
Publisher Review Print in Windsor, MO
City
County Greene Missouri
State Missouri
Price $5.00 (plus $1.50 postage and handling)
Notes:
There is so little written about women ancestors. I recently bought a small booklet entitled "Minutes of 48th Annual Session of the Methodist Protestant Church" held at Mt. Pisgah Church in Greene County, MO, September 2-4, 1914. A lady named Ola Amos of Rogersville, MO was a representative on the Literature committee. Although the booklet has signs of age, wear, and a few pencil marks, it makes for interesting reading.

I found a death certificate for Mary Leola Amos, who died of general sepsis from a cut on her thumb, on June 4, 1935. She was 65 years old. The death certificate gives her date of birth as 7 Sept 1870 in Webster County, MO. The informant was Mary Amos of Rogersville, MO. The undertaker was Kelley and Ferrell of Rogersville, MO. She was buried in Panther(?) Valley Cemetery.

I am not related, but I would like to connect this booklet with a family member or family researcher. Please contact me if you have an interest in this booklet.
