Recently I inherited an Atlas of Jewell County published by Gillen & Davy for
1884. The Atlas includes a map for each township with the name of the property
At this point I'm not sure how rare is this information but I would be happy
make it available to those interested.
My great grandfather, Clarence LaRue Emery, born in Morrison, Stark County,
Illinois, homesteaded in Grant Township, Jewell County, Kansas in 1872. His
brother-in-law Louis S. Chandler settled there at the same time. Chas E. Murphy
accompanied them to Kansas and settled there as well.
Clarence LaRue Emery's father Cyrus Parker Emery (my great, great grandfather)
settled in Sinclair Township during the same period. Another son, Cyrus Francis
Emery settled there on an adjacent acreage.
I would welcome any information readers to this forum might have on my family
and would be happy to reciprocate.
