Peart Family

In the 1850 census of Kaw Township, Jackson County, Missouri, the Peart children are shown living with William and Rebecca Corel and their family. It is shown that Oney P. Biggs-Peart died in January 1850. Who was Oney? Is she somehow related to Rebecca Oney-Corel? The Peart father, Jonathan, lived Kaw Township, Jackson County, Missouri, perhaps as a border in 1850. Perhaps he was just unable to care for the young children and felt they would be better taken care of by William and Rebecca.

Over time I have come to be able to answer some of these questions. It does not appear that “Oney” Biggs-Peart was related to Rebecca Oney-Corel.

Jonathan and Oney had three children, all born in Missouri:

  1. Stuart was born about 1843.
  2. Mary Louisa was born September 7, 1844.
  3. William B. was born July 25, 1848.
