I am looking for Caughey S. FLEMING, born 1854, Decatur Co.
Oral family history says Caughey was an orphan from Iowa or Kansas.
(Both states have a Decatur Co.)
Caughey "appears" in Shelbyville, IN, sometime between the 1870
census. He married here in Shelbyville and raised a family here.
Sometime between 1850 and 1860, a wagon train left the Shelbyville, IN,
area, headed for Page Co, IA. This wagon train included some FLEMING's.
I have (cyber) "talked" to a gentleman in IA who said some
passed through Decatur Co, on to Page Co, with some going to KS.
Would ANYONE with any FLEMING connections or knowledge please

When I was eight years old in 1979, my family and I went to a
"Claar" family reunion in Oberlin, Kansas. As I recall,
possibly up to 100 relatives attended this event. I remember hearing
stories of my great-great grandfather who settled and named an area in DC
county called Hawkeye. I even read a story called, "Boyhood
Memories of Hawkeye, Kansas." Are there any Claar family members
still living in your county? I am the grandson of Mary Claar (Clark);
daughter of Joy Claar. I was raised in Massachusetts, but attended
college at Wichita State and married a local girl and stayed here.

I am searching for any information on Lydia Remington Rouse who
may have lived and died in Decatur Co. Any information would be
of great help. Lydia was married to John Rouse and had a son

indeed layed to rest there. Her surname is very unusual. Her name is
Mary Sonday nee Gearing. As of yet, I have no record of her death or
burial. Thank you in advance.
