Ralph Tomlinson came to this county some time before 1889 from somewhere "up north". He married Allie Eona Childs 2/14/1889. Allie was daughter of Daniel Childs and Sally C. ?, long time residents of the area. Allie died 10/11/1895 in Paola and left my grandfather, Clifford Childs Tomlinson without a mother. Some time later Ralph remarried to someone called "Lizzie". This is about all I know about this family.

Could you please look to see if you have a Joseph CRAIG and wife as taxpayers of Miami County in 1878?
William Harris b Mar 1, 1826 d Jan 9, 1916, 116-Vol I
In the Index of Miami Co. Residents and Taxpayers of 1878 there were no listing under the name Joseph CRAIG. There is a listing for J. CREIG in Paola Township at PT1-17-23. Oddly enough, when looking on the maps, it shows 154.24 acres being owned by Mrs C.A. CRAIG. Also noticed other listings of an Archibald and a V.D. CRAIG while looking for Joseph, so there may be a lead for you here.
