KEIM posted by Bonnie Keim on Monday, June 2, 2003

Could you please tell me if their is an Isaac Keim buried in the Medicine Lodge Cemetery. He is my husband's great uncle and we understood he was killed by the Indians. We would like to find where he is buried and if in Medicine Lodge we would like to visit his grave site. Thank you for your assistance.

GRAHAM posted by Kathryn Wells on Tuesday, June 10, 2003

I am looking for the burial of Norman Graham, died September 18, 1899; according to his Civil War pension papers, he was "returned to Sharon" and "buried nearby" I have a brief notice from the Medicine Lodge Crescent, Friday Sept 22, 1899: "... the body of Norman Graham was brought back from the hospital ...and interred in the cemetery. Bro. Sherk conducted the burial service. Bro. Graham resided for several years near Sharon before he moved to Oklahoma." I am really looking for the burial location of his mother, Barbara Graham, who last appears on the 1870 census. Although he lived in Oklahoma, perhaps he was buried in Sharon because his mother or other relatives were buried there. Other Grahams are: Sidney Graham, Hannah Graham.

OSBORNE posted by Judy Huber on Tuesday, June 17, 2003

I am looking for information on J. B. Garvin Osborne who lived in Barber County around 1900. He married Gladis someone and had at least four children. Did Garvin stay in Barber county? What happened to his mother, Isabella Garvin Osborne? Is she buried in Barber County? Is there a marker for his father, Josiah K. Osborne? Is there anyone who would look up Garvin in the 1900, 1910 census?

DEMOSS posted by Mary Misitis on Wednesday, July 2, 2003

I am trying to find further information about the Kenneth DeMoss family that lived in Sharon at least during the 1940-1970 time period. Kenneth lived with Pearl toward what seemed the edge of town at that time. Their son Dale Dean DeMoss has now passed away. There was a small cemetary behind a building, I think a church or rectory more in the town. Even in the early 1960s when we visited there the cemetery was not very noticeable. I believe there were one or two DeMoss graves there, at least one of a very young child. Dale DeMoss was born in Belidere, Kansas in 1931, but I do not believe that he is buried in Sharon. I wonder if Kenneth and Pearl have passed away and are buried in Sharon? Kenneth had retired from a railroad, but I don't know which one. Kenneth had originally been married to a lady named Goldie, but she left the area when the children were young. Is there anyone in Sharon that would have the time and be willing to correspond with me? If there are any records available I would be so grateful to be able to access them.

KEPPERLING, KETTERING posted by Stan Rutherford on Wednesday, July 9, 2003

Have you ever heard of the name Walter Kepperling or Walter Kettering? I was told that in Barber County in the I.O.O.F ( I believe it burned down ? ) there was a photo of him hanging there?

MCKINNEY posted by Dorris McKinney on Wednesday, July 23, 2003

I am researching Alexander Rodney McKinney, a member of the posse that captured the killers of Edward Wiley Payne. He is a family member and I am trying to find the story on him that appeared in the Medicine Lodge newspaper in 1884 on his later career as a Deputy Marshall. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

STONE posted by Wilma Sprague on Monday, September 1, 2003

I am inquiring about James W. Stone, born May 22, 1856 who I believe resided sometime during the years of 1911 and 1920 before his death. He and his wife Martha Dennison Stone came to Hazelton, Barber county with at least 2 of their children....Rosa J. Stone and Frank Stone. Martha Stone was listed as a widow in the 1920 Hazelton KS. census. Her son Frank resided with her until her death in 1934. I would like to know when James W. died or any information about him. He and family came from Greyson County, Leitchfield KY. after 1910. Martha is buried in the Hazelton Cemetary. I believe Frank worked as a farm hand.

MOSES, SOLOMON posted by LeRoy Nassif on Friday, September 26, 2003

I am trying to locate information on two of my relatives. They were Abraham Moses and Thomas Solomon family. They lived in Sharon, KS in the early 1900s. I believe they moved to Wichita, KS but have not found any information. They were from Lebanon. I believe Abraham Moses married a lady named Ada. Her last name is unknown. I think she was born in Kansas and they were married about 1901. I believe Abraham Moses remarried. I would like to know the where did these two families move to and the names and addresses of any siblings or descendants. Thanks.

LACY, LAMBERT posted by Joe Lacy on Saturday, October 4, 2003

Looking for the names of parents and ancestors of Sarah A. Lambert, married to William Prince Lacy in 1879 in Medicine Lodge, Barber Co., Kansas. She died in childbirth February 5, 1883 in Sun City, Barber Co, Kansas; buried in Lake City Cemetery.

HITT posted by Catherine Green on Sunday, November 9, 2003

I don't know if there are volunteers in Medicine Lodge, but my query concerns a brief stay in early 1900s in Medicine Lodge by the family of Oliver & Kate May Hitt with their children. During their time in Medicine Lodge the couple lost a baby, Nellie, who is listed in burials on the county genweb site at Highland Cem., Medicine Lodge. We recently visited Medicine Lodge on a Saturday and the library was not open and the cemetery was too large for us to find Nellie's headstone, which if it exists we would have liked to photograph. My question I am tossing out today is whether some kind volunteer would look in the Medicine Lodge for any slightest mention of the Hitts the library might have indexed -- we are at a standstill on learning more about this family and would appreciate any lead.

LEFFLER posted by Joanne Umlor on Sunday, November 9, 2003
