I am looking for the marriage record for
Orland Johns HULL and Josephine Emma HULL of Rose Hill between 1905 and 1909.

Charles W. FAIR was my Great-Grandfather. He was married to Sarah ?? and had
three daughters (Ada, Lucy & Geneva). In the 1920 census he is living in
El Dorado, Butler County, Kansas with wife and two daughters, Lucy and Geneva.
The census also shows an infant girl whom Geneva is listed as the mother of.
CW was born in MO in 1856. In the late 1890's they were in Arkansas and then
show on census records as living in Caldwell, Kansas through 1910+.
Sarah shows on the California 1930 census living with Geneva and husband George
STROUD in California and is listed as a widow. Did CW die in El Dorado and
if so, where is he buried? Thank you for your help.

Needing information regarding the prairie fire that killed the two WIGGINS
children buried in the Adams Family Cemetery, Potwin, Kansas. The names and
dates on the stones are Frank and James, year of death for both is listed 1880
on the cemetery listing. However, the book by Elsie Higdon Smith, "Potwin
Christian Church - a History" indicated the children were named Frankie and
Elsie and that they died in 1868. Amy Adams gave an interview to the local
paper regarding the Adams Family Cemetery and she indicated that the children
were named Jimmie and Elsie and that they died in 1898. Their parents are
Horace WIGGINS and Elizabeth Jane (PITZER) WIGGINS . Any information about
this family and the correct dates of death would be greatly appreciated.
