Marriage

Eliza Jane's death certificate states that her father was Jim Friend. (The information was supplied by her husband.) There were at least 3 distinct FRIEND families that were neighbors of Lewis CLARKSTON in the 1850-1860 period.

Census

In the census of 1880 Amanda and James Johnson are living near her daughter Eliza Jane FRIEND Miles in Washington, Webster, Missouri. The children listed are Thomas 9, James 12 and Sarah 16. According to this census Amanda was born in Missouri, her father in KY and her mother in TN.

Death

At James' death in 1898, there was no mention of Amanda. Kay Silkey reported \"Mom and I searched the newspapers in Dallas and Webster county and could not find any mention of Amanda or Martha (Myers) death.\"

Land records in Webster county show that Amanda was alive in July 1891 because she signed a deed for a land sale, but in 1896 James Johnson signed two deeds without her signature. Evidently she died between 1891 and 1896.

Note

From: "Kay Silkey" Kay.Silkey@mcmail.vanderbilt.edu Subject: James and Amanda Clarkston Friend Date: Fri, 08 Jan 1999 13:00 -0600

I am researching James Friend m. Amanda Clarkston ca. 1855 in either Ozark or Taney County Missouri or perhaps Marion County Arkansas. He died by 1864 when Amanda married James Johnson of Dallas County Missouri. Amanda was the daughter of Lewis Clarkston. James may be a son of Peter Friend who appears on the 1850 Marion County AR census along with Lewis Clarkston.
