Jane - the information I have comes from a Biographical Sketch of John H. Fillmore published in the "History of Southern Iowa". It states that he was in Grundy and Davis Counties in Missouri , but it doesn't give a date. It probably would have been around 1860. Yes, he did move around a lot.

Nancy--I am sorry I cannot give you more information about John H Fillmore's early family history. I am interested in churches he served in MO. The Brethren Encyclopedia lists only Flat Woods in MO. Flat Woods, MO is a new location to me. Do you have any names of towns or churches he served in MO? I am guessing [always dangerous] that it is somewhere in the vicinity of Schuyler Co MO. This church was sometimes called Green Top or Tippecanoe. The Iowa churches shared their ministers with several of the brethren churches located in MO along the border with Iowa. These were early MO churches and not much information has been kept about them. John H. Fillmore was involved with several of the early churches in Iowa and moved often within the state.
Today there are Fillmores involved with the Brethren in Oklahoma and Idaho but I do not know whether they are tied to your great-grandfather. Jane Davis.
