My mother, Bertha Agnes McKEE, was born in
Council Grove, January 20, 1919. Her father was Willard McKEE, and mother was
Meta (McKEE) FRANDSEN). Meta's mother's maiden name was Sarah Safford (married
names: FRANDSEN, MATKINS). I know
they lived in Warren township. Could you locate their homestead and burial of
Meta and Willard? We are planning to be there July 27-30 and would like to
visit those places.
My mother died in 1979, and so all my
info is off of death certificates and census'. Meta died in 1932 and Willard
died in 1934. I know one of them (at least) is buried in Beman Cemetery, but I
don't know where that is. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

First name of this man? He was a physician
in the 1890's and early 1900's in White city Kansas. Do you have his date
of birth and date of death?
SHORTThe family bible gives his death
date as 09 September 1896. Albert is the twin to my direct ancestor Levi White

obtaining some kind of death record for him? Thank you for your time.

I am looking for more information on an ALBERT
SHORT born 22 September 1851 Sixteen Mile Stand, Hamilton Co., OH. He married a
Martha (Mattie) (HARVEY) DAVIS. She was born about 1855 in OH. The family story
is they traveled to Kansas where he died. I have a photograph of him with
Council Grove Kansas across the corner of it and the passed down story is that's
where he died.

My Great-Grandmother, Lucy
ANKER lived in Wilsey, KS (Morris co.) from about 1880 until she died in May of
1908. Her daughter, Pauline ANKER, was my grandmother. Lucy was not married and
my great grandfather's name was supposedly Porter GASKEN of Elk Hart, IND. I
found a P. GASKINS in the KS census in 1895 which would have been only a few
years before my grandmother would have been conceived. Lucy was born in 1874 so
Porter would have probably been of a similar age. My grandmother was born
3/8/1899 in Wilsey. I am looking for any information on these people and any
clues to the identity of my biological great-grandfather. Thanks for your help.

I am looking for birth, death,
photos or marriage information for Mathias, Christiana, William, Edwin, Joseph,
Lucy, Susanna, Lewis ANKER. In particular, Lucy ANKER. She was my
Great-Grandmother. Their family was listed in Elm Creek township of Morris
County in 1900. Christiana (mother) died in 1903 and Lucy in 1908. I am looking
for specific documentation of those as well as other family members during that
time. My grandfather was supposedly named Porter Gasken, and worked for the
railroad but I have been unable to document that. He and Lucy were not married.
Thanks for your help.

I am researching my great
grandfather's first daughter, Margaret C. GILLASPY, and her mother, (CARLISSE).
Margaret lived in White City, Morris County, KS for a while. Margaret was
born 09/09/1858 in Vernon Township, Jackson County, Indiana, to Robert Johnson
and (CARLISSE) GILLASPY. (CARLISSE) seems to have disappeared from the
public record after the Civil War.
Margaret's father, now Dr. Robert J. GILLASPY, remarries to Sarah Catherine
DIXON on 03/25/1873 and moves to White City, Morris County, KS. Margaret
married William A. HOUGLAND on 10/25/1876 in Vernon Township, Jackson County,
William A. and Margaret C. HOUGLAND move to White City, Morris County, KS in
1884 and may have lived there temporarily with Daniel E. and Lillie M. Morris .
(Lillie M. was Margaret's step-sister). William A. and Margaret C.
HOUGLAND owned land and lived in White City, Morris County, KS between 1884 and
1888. They relocated to Louisville City, Jefferson County, Kentucky
sometime around 1889.
The Jackson County Health Department of Indiana has no birth records preceding
1880; and as such, no record for Margaret C. or her mother (CARLISSE). They also
have no record of Robert J. and (CARLISSE) GILLASPY's marriage.
