I am looking for some back dated newspapers, about 1954-55
my dad was severely burned in an accident, he was a lineman for REA. I am
thinking this may have been near Mankato, but not sure.
name was Melvin Arnold Warner at the time he had 2 children, he did not die, but
probably close. the one thing I do remember was a terrible train crash happened
in or near that time. many people were killed or injured. I was about 7-8 then,
so my memory is not quite clear on the wreck, If anyone could find those
articles I sure would appreciate the articles. Because I never saw anything
about my dad. thanks for any info on that.
another one is my grandad was also severly burned in about that time frame, this
was near Lebanon, Kansas. kerosene refrigerator exploded in his face, his name
was George Philemon Warner. also if this helps a mr. Christman also was severly
burned about a month later, they didn't live far from each other.
any information on these two I would greatly appreciate it.

I don't see any mention of one of the early homesteaders in Jewell County
Kansas, The family of John Simar relocated to Kansas, from Iowa, in 1871 or
1872, taking a homestead on ash creek, in Jewell Co.
My Grandfather was born on that homestead in 1873. I've visited that area many
times, and always enjoy looking around and trying to imagine how it must have
looked in the late 1800's
