BOUCHER...SENGER Kaycee Dye
(DyeKM@ci.north-platte.ne.us) 5 June 2007 My name is Kaycee Dye and I live in North
Platte, Nebraska and work at the North Platte Public Library. The reason I’m
mailing you is to see if you would have any information on a man who got married
in Bird City, Kansas in 1958.
We had a lady come to the Library who
works for the local hi-rise retirement home here in North Platte. There was a
gentleman living there who passed away on Monday. He only talked about a
daughter and no one else. They found a marriage license in his personal
belongings and nothing else that might give information on living relatives. He
had also shown pictures in his wallet to people but no one knows who the
pictures are or they don’t remember. We were wondering if you might be able to
find any information on him through the marriage license? They filed for the
license on November 14, 1958
Donald BOUCHER of Bird City, Kansas,
Freda SENGER, of Bird City, Kansas, age 19
Married on November 16, 1958, the
certificate was signed by Ralph R Radkoff (spelling ?), Pastor
It is stamped with the Cheyenne County
Seal with the date 11th day of September 2003. We can’t read the words that are
stamped by the seal, just the date that was written in. The name of the Clerk of
the District Court in 2003 was Sharon Elliott, anyway it’s her signature by the
stamp. Also on the top of the page is P.J. no. 3808. I don’t know what that
Thank you for any help and let me know if there is a cost
involved. We would love to find someone to let them know he’s gone if there is
anyone to find.
ENOS Charles Enos
(firstname.lastname@example.org) 6 May 2007
From various family stories I've been led to believe that my
Great Great Great Uncle William George ENOS died in Jaqua, Kansas April 1, 1913
and in buried in the Jaqua cemetery. If this is the case, then he has some
connection to Cheyenne county and could be included in the list of surnames.
I'm trying to confirm when/where he was born and how long he had been in
Cheyenne county. I believe he - and perhaps some of his children - came from
Decatur county sometime after 1895.
