I'm looking for information on the HOGGATT family in Osage County. My father, Charles Francis Hoggatt, said he was born in 1888 in Ware City or Weir City in Osage County near Osage City. He also said that the town no longer existed. His father and grandfather came to Kansas in 1878. His father's name was John Wesley Hoggatt and his mother's name was, I believe, Idabell Ramsey. If anyone can provide any information about the place of birth or family I would be most appreciative.

I am searching for my ancestors who came to Osage county probably about 1887 or after. I have recently discovered that they settled around the Arvonia area. They were: William George JONES Jane GEORGE JONES Rachel Anna 'Annie' Margaret Jane Willie David Evan Arthur Charley Priscilla The Jones family came to Kansas from Wales. Rachel and Margaret were twins b. May 21, 1883 in Breckenshire, South Wales. Family story says that they came to the states when they were about 4 years old. I don't know where they entered the US; would like to know. Also, don't know how or when they came to KS. I have no idea how many children they already had when coming to the US. Would love to find the family on a census report. Again, not sue how many of the above children would be on the census with them. Rachel married Jay O. PEET in Emporia June 5, 1901. This couple is my grgrandparents. Margaret JONES married an UMDENSTOCK whom I believe may be from Arvonia township, too. Does anyone recognize this family? Any and all help would be appreciated.
