I am searching for more information on my-great grandfather Henry Means. He was born in Christian County Kentucky in about 1827. Some information indicates he moved later to Ohio, then on to Polk County Arkansas. He shows up in the 1880 census in Polk County with wife Carrie, children Samuel H. Means (my grandfather), Eddie, Annie, Fanny, a daughter-in law, and one grandchild.. His profession was Physician. A record exists that he married a second wife(Lizzie Joplin) in Polk County in 1888 when he was 60 years of Age. I have been unable to locate any later information on him. There is an indication that he may have returned to Ohio. Any information would be appreciated.
Do you have a time frame? I have family with the last name of Means here in Missouri. My great-aunt Katie married an Otho Delos Means b. 1912.I don't have any information beyond Otho, but I have information on decendents from he and Auntie Katie.
Hi I hope this is the same family. My David Means was born about 1806 in PA and moved his family to Ohio. Moved to MO between 1850 and 1860, died in Madison County, 13 Mar 1886. His son John Bower Means is my great grandfather, born 1844, Tuscarawas, Ohio. David's wife was Margaret Bowers, also died in MO>
