Complete Biography:
[Transcribed by Cathy Porter-Maynard]

".....Robert Childers is a native of East Tennessee, born on August 1, 1823. His FATHER, Robert Childers, Sr., was born in Virginia, and served in the War of 1812 as a private soldier under Gen. Jackson. Upon leaving his native State, the latter first located in Tennessee, and on December 3, 1837, brought his family to Missouri. He located in the only cabin on the present site of Southwest City. This cabin had been built two or three years previously by Robert Louderdale. In 1838 the family removed into the Cherokee Nation, Indian Territory, settling on Grand River, near the mouth of Saline Creek, where the father operated a corn-cracker mill, which was propelled by water from the latter creek. However, the following year, he returned with his family to McDonald County and settled on Cow Skin Prairie.

Robert Childers Jr., has since been a resident of this county. He is the owner of 106 acres of land which he rents to tenants. For twelve years he served as Justice of the Peace, administering the duties of his office in an able and satisfactory manner. On October 16, 1845, he was united in marriage with Elizabeth PRICE, a daughter of Campbell Price (deceased). They became the parents of nine children, six of whom are living, viz.: James C., Sarah A., Martha, Robert, Frank, and Mary J. One daughter, Emma, died after reaching womanhood, leaving a husband and one child. Mr. Childers is an earnest member of the Christian Church. Mrs. Childers departed this life on October 14, 1875, a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church."
