Alice Josephine LYONS or Josephine Alice LYONS
born about 1874 in Kansas; that married Oliver McLELAND 3 March 1895 in Neosho
County. According to her 1920 census she was born in Kansas yet on the
same census Lola her daughter's mother is listed as being born in Missouri, so
it is confusing. The 1920 census states both her parents were born in
Illinois. She was living with Simon L DYER in Deerlodge, Montana then as a
divorcee and married him that September in Idaho. Any help in locating
information on her background would be highly appreciated. I do not have access
to all the Federal census records to find out for sure who her parents are. All
I have is possibility in W. L. LYONS 1843 and S L LYONS that I found on 1880
census that they were both born in Illinois.

Was Charles William TRIMBLE b: 03 Mar 1881 Kansas, father Samuel
TRIMBLE and Nettie Unknown, b: Abt 1886 Iowa wife of Charles William

Allen County, Kansas in 1905, with son Glen TRIMBLE age 2, and in 1910,
Charles William TRIMBLE is shown on the Census widowed. Allen County couldn't
find a marriage license, so maybe they were married in Neosho County, or
somewhere else. Any information about this family, besides the Census would be

I was born in Chetopa Township, Neosho County
in 1934. My father was Fred McFARLAND (also born in Neosho County - 1908, + or
- a year). His father was Charles McFARLAND (passed away in the 1940's).
My immediate family left Kansas during WWII, went to West Coast (work - better
life). We never returned and lost track of McFARLAND family back in Kansas.
I would like to make contact with any
member of the McFARLAND family in an attempt to confirm if I have family members
and my memories as an eight year old kid when we left Kansas.
I sent an email to Patricia Medford
(the 'McFARLAND' surname contact) but it was returned as undeliverable. I
sure would appreciate any help.

I am looking for records of the Michael and Margaret LINIHAN
family. They moved from Illinois to Neosho County around 1870. That was
their address in the 1870 Federal Census. They had seven children. I believe
Michael died in 1874, cause unknown. Margaret later married a BURNS. I am
assuming they are buried someplace in Neosho County, Kansas. I have a record
that Margaret BURNS may have died in 1905 in Jasper County, MO.

I am a relatively new genealogy student and am trying to find
information on my father's family who is from Neosho County. My father was born
in St. Paul according to family info, but I recently ran across information that
makes me believe they may have been living in "Osage Mission". I can not find
reference to that city? Could it have changed names over the years? I plan on
a trip to Kansas in the near future and will visit Cherokee and Neosho County
for family information. The other surname of interest is DILLON, which was my
Grandmother. I have some scattered information on both.

I am looking for information on a THORNE
family that adopted an uncle of mine Joseph W.(JACOBS) THORNE. Joe was one of
those children who was put on a train and sent to other places for adoption. He
married Nellie Faye CLAIBORNE of Chanute. He was working on her fathers farm and
they met and married in 1935 in Chanute. She was born in 1916 in Chanute. She
was the only child of Hogan Burt and Nellie Louise CLAIBORNE of Chanute. Joseph
(JACOBS) THORNE was the natural son of Rosa C. (ADAMS) JACOBS and an unknown
JACOBS father, he had a sister Emma who I know nothing about. We are trying to
put the pieces together for this family. Joe also had a 1/2 brother that he
knew, Elmer Smith ANDERSON who lives in Safford, AZ. He was also on the orphan
train and adopted by August and Mary ANDERSON, he may have been adopted in
Chanute also. However they did not know they were related and met accidentally
on some kind of cattle drive or something like that. They discovered they were
brothers when they both started to sing the same song with the same people in
it. This story was featured in Country Magazine in Jan 1995. We would love to
complete this story in a good way, if anyone knows of these folks please contact
me. Elmer Smith ANDERSON is still alive and will be 96 in June, 2007, We are
going there to meet him in June. I would love to have some other information to
