there is such a big age difference between the husband and wife, I suspect she may be the second wife. 

The 1900 census reflects the information in the genealogy.

But there is an 1880 census for the same town for a man named Obe Duvall 

"United States Census, 1880," database with images, FamilySearch( : accessed 30 April 2016), Obe Duvall, Beauvais, Ste Genevieve, Missouri, United States; citing enumeration district ED 134, sheet 596D, NARA microfilm publication T9 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.), roll 0715; FHL microfilm 1,254,715.


In this case, the wife's name was Josette and they had a 25 year old daughter named Emily.

  • United States Census, 1870 
  • Missouri 
  • Randolph 
  • Chariton 

doing a search within the page I found this one. It looks promising. The Document lists in the same household an R P Wert but looking at other lettering on the same page this might be R P West. Do you have any family stories about a boarder in their house?
