In the 1870 Census Charles W. MIKEL was living in Montgomery Co. with his wife Lucinda Elizabeth Stewart MIKEL and small children. In 1874 she has moved back to Missouri as a widow and remarries. What happened to Charles Mikel. I presume he either had an accident or a fatal illness. Are there newspapers which would give an obituary, or report of an accident, or cemetery records which could perhaps help me locate his burial? Or does someone know about him?

I'm trying to find the family of Joseph Martin Huffman b. 1923, Havana, KS... He was married more than once and has children from the marriages... Joe is a pilot, and served in WWII-Italy 1944-45. Has a son named Martin Lynn. Joes parents are Ross Linn Huffman 4-12-1888-1965-buried Havana, KS and Bessie Mae Furnas (Huffman)headstone in Havana, KS, but buried in Sarpy County, NE. (HAVE HER gen INFORMATION) m. in 1909. Bessie is from the Havana, Independence, KS area. Joe's Grandparents were Alice S. 1864-1932 buried Havana, KS and John J. Huffman b.1861, buried Havana, KS 1933..
Joe Huffman was last seen in Omaha NE area 25 years ago.
I located a posting on rootsweb from the above mentioned son on Joe, named Martin Lynn Huffman. He stated that my grandfather had traced the family tree back to the 1500's in Germany and that Baltzar Hoffman/Huffman was directly related to the family,Siegen, Germany, and that the first family to enter US was in
1714, Virginia by the name of Johann Huffman/Hoffman. The e~mail address is no longer valid and I have called, and called trying to find Martin Huffman, with no luck...
I would like to request that you send me any information you may have on the Huffman/Hoffman's as I may have to start from the opposite end for my search.
I know that he is related because of some of the information above was stated, that I already had... I have sent for my grandfathers service records, but they where burnt in the fire the government had. Most H's where.
