Reasearching the Bouse families and desc. who migrated to Coffey Co. from Cass Co. Mo. Silas Bouse and wife Elizabeth Ann Sandlin Bouse moved to this country in the l880's.

My great uncle, Michael Glennon and his family lived in Coffey County, just on the Anderson Co. line in the 1883-1930 era, as best we can tell from family records. We have just learned that John Cristy/Christie was married to Michael's sister, Ann Glennon. In land records (1882) Ann is listed as being deceased and Alice, their daughter is a minor; John Cristie as her guardian.

Cynthia died in 1876 and their two children were not livng with Harvey by 1880. One of their children was Sylvester Toms, who later lived in Allen Co. The other child may have been an Ida Toms, whereabouts after 1880 unknown.

SIMMONS posted by on Sunday, November 8, 1998

I need help! I came across a very old letter recanting about my g-g- grandfather, Francis SIMMONS, who came to Ft. Leavenworth from Indiana, then went somewhere to stake his claim or claims by racing to Coffey to do it. This occurred sometime between April and June of 1857. I am interested in finding those documents. There was also mention about a place called Paola (Peoria?). The family settled shortly thereafter in Lawrence, Douglas Co., but I am most interested in how they as pioneers went about doing what they did in those days. (By the way, they survived Quantrill's Raid!) Any assistance you or someone can provide me will be greatly appreciated.
