Family History Library has book 977.835 Marion Co MO Hannibal, Missouri Riverside Cemetery records. I am looking for the INTERMENT records which the book referees to as available from Tri County Research P.O. Box 1151 Hannibal, MO 63401. Is this still available? I have the date of death for William McClormick Loudon, but the book says his birth was Cumberland MD and I think it should have said Cumberland, PA. I want to see those actual records. Thanks for you help.
I am looking for information on Edward Green, perhaps originally James Edward Green, who served in Co D, U.S. Colored Infantry, during the Civil War.

I found a marriage certificate for my GGGrandfather, Absolom M. Babb and Mary Ann Shaw dated 24 March 1857 performed at St. Judes (sp) Parish, Marion County, by a Rev Frederick B. Sheetz. I did find the Reverend in the 1860 & 1870 Census for Marion County. I’m looking for any information on the Parish or maybe a picture of the church.
