How can you find information on Eugene or Ken or Daryl Davis around Davisville Missouri?

if your talking about kenneth Wayne Davis or daryl eugene Davis or even Gloria Davis then talk to me because i am the son of kenneth

mopar111687@yahoo.com

AnswerThe answer to this question depends on WHEN they were living near Davisville, Missouri. If they were there in 1930 or before, then the United States census might be of help. One of the most popular ways to access those records is through Ancestry.com, a subscription website. (Your library or local LDS Family History Center might offer patron access free of charge.) If they are deceased, try looking for obituaries or probate records. If they are living, there are any number of "people search" websites that might be of help (for a fee).

Which is the longest river in North America?

The Mississippi-Missouri River ranks as the fourth longest river in the world and the longest on the continent of North America. It is 3,600+ miles long.

The Mississippi River starts in Northern Minnesota at Itasca State Park. The headwaters come out of Lake Itasca and there is a line of boulders going across the entry point.

The river passes alongside many cities and through many states on its long journey; some of which include Memphis, St. Louis, and Baton Rouge. The river then dumps itself out into the ocean in New Orleans.

The Mississippi is 'joined' by the Missouri just north of St. Louis. Of course, one could easily argue that the Mississippi joins the Missouri. The Mississippi gets its name from French explorers who came down from Canada. The name comes from an Ojibwa word for falling water. If the explorers had come east from Oregon, they might have encountered the Missouri first, and the river would be named the Missouri all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.

The longest section of river in North America with one name is the Missouri, so we could say that is the longest river. But, the Missouri has several tributaries. The longest tributary of the Missouri River is the Jefferson River, whose longest tributary is the Beaverhead River, whose longest tributary is the Red Rock River. The Red Rock is fed by Hellroaring Creek.

Therefore, using what we call the 'longest branch criterion', I say that the longest river is the Mississippi-Missouri-Jefferson-Beaverhead-Red Rock-Hellroaring.

What is the largest river in North America?

The longest river in North America is the Mackenzie River in Canada at 2,635 miles long.

The largest river, though not the longest, is the Mississippi. It has a flow volume of 593,000 cubic feet per second at its mouth. Actually, if you consider the Mississippi-Missouri-Red Rock River as one continuous stream (which it actually is), it is much longer than the Mackenzie, and the fourth longest river in the world, after the Nile, the Amazon, and the Yangtze.

Why does dakotas four main cities lie on the Missouri river or red river of the north?

First of all, not all of the main cities in the Dakotas are located on the Missouri River or the Red River.

The largest city in the Dakotas, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, is located on the Big Sioux River. Sioux Falls is located there because the people who settled the area needed water. The same would be for Rapid City, South Dakota and Minot, North Dakota.

Fargo, North Dakota is located on the Red River of the North, again, because the settlers needed water to survive and to plant crops.

Bismarck, North Dakota, Pierre, South Dakota, and Yankton, South Dakota, are all located on the Missouri River. At the time these three cities were settled, rivers and waterways were a main means of transportation. The Missouri River provided transportation for people and supplies to the Dakotas along with the water needed for daily living.
