Know anyone that might have those books - or the best place to write to check?

I'm most interested in what is said/written regarding William Erskine Marr.

Only documentation that exists (that we have found) are letters, paragraphs, etc. from his grandchildren remembering..... I have info of most of the other names listed. My father is direct descendent of William Erskine Marr's son Samuel (b. 12/1/1740). William had two other sons, Henry Munday and Barnabas.

Elizabeth Cowley, tholle@cei.net, Fri, 13 Mar 1998
I am searching info on my G-Grandfather Shoemaker. I believe he was in Cowley County, Ks by 1871, but have not had access to any census of that time. Henry Thomas Shoemaker -b: 1838 d: abt 1913 --in Winfield, Ks, Cowley Co married: Katherine {?? della Camp??}
Children:
1.Samuel-b: abt 1866
2.Margaret{Maggie}b: 1868
3.Elizabeth b: 1872--b: Kansas
4.Adam b: 1876 b: --Kansas
5.Arka Jane b: 1881
This info came from a census in 1880 in Benton County, Arkansas. That is the only time I have found Henry T. Shoemaker listed. Two of his children were born in Kansas, so I am assuming it might have been in Cowley County, Kansas.

Sue Dutton Rodgers, oldolls@ipa.net, Fri, 20 Mar 1998
BARTON, Ora Mrs. and/or KUPER(Cooper?), Drucilla.  I am needing to connect with someone doing family research on these two sisters. ADAIR: I believe this may have been their maiden name.  They would have been born ca. 1875-85.   I'm sorry I don't have much information, this has been the most difficult area of my family research.

My great grandmother, Mary Elizabeth (was also named Carpey) ADAIR was born 10 Jan 1873.  She married Green Berry Benbrook abt 1890 and they lived all their lives in Miami, Oklahoma.  Carpey died 23 Sept 1957 in Miami.  In her obituary two sisters were listed:  Mrs. Ora Barton and Mrs. Drucilla Kuper (Cooper?) and stated they resided in Arkansas City, Kansas.  Anyone having information on either of these two women PLEASE get in contact with me.

On Carpey's death certificate her father is listed as Adair Burleigh.  At first I wasn't certain whether Adair was a first name or last.  However, on her oldest son's death certificate his mother is shown to be Carpey ADAIR.  My assumption is that ADAIR was the family name, but I've found much misinformation on Carpey, so I am open to ANY suggestions on her family.  Am anxious to correspond with anyone who might be able to shed light on my big MYSTERY!!!  Thanks.  Sue Dutton Rodgers

I am the great-great-grandaughter of Seyphrena Marrs and Ezekial Lisenby. My great-grandfather, John Thomas Berry and his wife, Allie Amanda Lisenby Berry moved from Illinois to Caldwell, Kansas. They later were in the "Running of the Cherokee Strip" and settled in a little town named Carrier, Oklahoma near Enid, Oklahoma.
