I am asking for help in finding the background
of Alice Josephine LYONS born Dec 1874 Kansas. As she married in Neosho
County Kansas to Oliver Morton McLELAND 3 Mar 1895 Neosho Kansas and lived in
Walnut Grove as his wife I am assuming that she too was from that general area.
The only family I found that maybe her family is that of J B LYONS who died in
1926 Neosho and was buried (probably by daughter) Rebecca E Wright. I
Would like the census of State Census lookup on her as well as 1880 Federal
Census,.. perhaps 1885 Provincial. This should give me an accurate picture of
where she came from. The 1920 census states both her parents were born in
Illinois. She lived in Deerlodge Montana by then; a divorcee as a private
housekeeper to the man she later married with her daughter and his mother.

was a "Preacher" and moved frequently, probably living in Kansas no more than 5
or so years (1902 earliest, 1909 latest) Any help or clues on obtaining
additional info or documentation. Thank you.

I am trying to do a matrilineal genealogical search. My uncle
recalls going to a family funeral in Chanute, Kansas when he was little, but he
doesn't remember the name of the deceased. This would have been in the 1930s.
Can anyone find out if there were any REYNOLDS or PHILLIPS that died in Chanute
in the 1930s, related to Oliver Dee John PHILLIPS (my grandpa) or his wife,
Nellie Faye PHILLIPS, nee REYNOLDS; or maybe Oliver's parents, whose names were
likely William PHILLIPS and Susan YOUNG.
