    mis-spelled Chalista or Challista Briggs on 1900 US census Scotland Co MO;

    IGI calls place "of Grant Co KY" so possibly in a probate settlement or some
    other record in Grant co KY, it referred to 1899 marriage of Calista Ann
    Williams to Charles H Briggs:

    GOOD: W.Forsythe posted the Childers sisters' compilation because those results
    were the most difficult ancestral linkages I've ever personally experienced
    someone discovering by perseverance. Most of their ancestors in the colonial
    south were so dirt poor that they never owned land; so the family linkages were
    discovered e.g. by stock brand records etc. of what ear notches meant the horse
    was owned by which poor farmer. I (Forsythe) wrote a colonial article in
    National Genealogical Society Quarterly 84 (1996): 182-199, but some of the
    Childers sisters' research is way beyond the family difficulties I ever faced;
    If y'all want to ask more details about this compilation:
    The best way is to write to the postal mail addresses below,as long as they are
    able to correspond (after all, they did the research!) but you are welcome to
    email the " computerizer" of this database, Mr. Forsythe--and he'll try to
    convey your message to Mrs. Kunz or Mrs. Hanks.;
    oct 2006 for now Forsythe just copies the general list of documentation sources
    listed in the Childers sisters' family publications (below)
    Mrs. Hanks, 908 Seattle, Ellensburg WA 98926 has loads of
    documentation summarized by her:
    personal knowledge
    data told by Guy&Anna Childers, Sally Childers, Marie Williams, Frank Holznagel
    Lincoln and Spokane County [WA state] vital records and church records
    parish records of Silesia, Germany on microfilm at Family History Center,
    Salt Lake City, Utah
    Scotland, Clark and Lewis County, Missouri vital records
    Census records of Missouri, Kentucky and Virginia
    U. S. Military records
    Nelson, Pendleton, Grant and Harrison Counties, Kentucky vital records
    Amherst, Albemarle, Greenbrier (now WV), and Kanawha (now WV), Virginia records
    Research done by Betty Jean Pfeifer, Ruth Weed, Roger Rickman, Pauline Foster,
    Evelyn Garrett, Terry England, Jean Rodgers, Carol Hudson, Helen Moore,
    Orville Paul Taylor, Eugene Dodge, Reta King and Mary Rouse
