Query: I am looking for a Sophia Starkneather who married James Peters. This woulod be in the early 1800's, before Charles E.'s time. Sophia and James had a daughter Josephine Henrietta who died in 1917 and had a daughter 1882, so Josephine was likely born in the 1850s or 40s which would make Sophia Starneather (Starkweather?) born probably in 1820's or teens.

If you have any info on Starkweathers in Kansas about that time I would be grateful.
