Author of

This manuscript is based on a third copy--previously unknown--which was accidentally located in April 1984. It was copied, in long-hand, by a great-grandson of Nancy's, John Thornton Warth, in 1895 "from the original" which was then in the possession of Nancy's ninth and youngest child, Minerva Jane (Clarke) Frazier, who resided in Jefferson City, Missouri.

John Thornton Warth, a bachelor, was the only child of Clara (Thornton) Warth.
For years he was an official at State Hospital No. 3, Nevada, in Missouri. Sometime during the early 1900's he sent a hand-written copy of his copy to his first cousin, Walton McMillan, son of Ann Eliza "Lida" (Thornton) McMillan. Clara and Ann Eliza were the fifth and sixth of eight children born to Dr. Samuel Yardley Thornton Sr. and wife, Frances "Citte" Clarke--with Frances being the second child and eldest daughter of Nancy Riley. This third copy is in the possession of Rev. McMillan's only child, Jane (McMillan) Breckner of Clayton, Missouri
