James A. Verett jverett@redshift.com

Would like to share information with anyone interested in the FENOGLIO, VERETTO, GADDO, REANO, PERONA, BUFFO, BERTA and other northern Italians from the Turino province of the Piedmonte region. Many came to the Will and Grundy Co IL coalfields in the late 1870s and early 1880s. When the mines closed, many came to work in the coalfields of Osage Co KS and lived there in the 1890s and early 1900s. Many then moved to the mines of Pittsburg and Coal Co OK. My ancestors then moved to Montague Co TX and became farmers. These families intermarried and traveled together from place to place. I have a database on each surname and am trying to link the name together by kinship.

My grgrandfather Arthur HARRISON (b.1853) emigrated from Yorkshire, UK with his oldest son Ezra about 1885. My grgrandmother, Jane Ann (b.1853, nee ARMITAGE) HARRISON and three children, Albert, Emma and Lillie joined them within the next year. Five children were born in the states: Mary, my grandfather Fred, Arthur Jr., Lucy, and Robert. Many years ago, my great aunt Mary told me she was born in 1886 in Scranton, KS, evidently where the family first settled. They later moved to Richmond, MO and St. Joseph, MO. My grgrandfather was a coal miner, and until I read other queries for Osage county, I did not realize there were coal fields in this area. I would appreciate any information anyone can provide about my HARRISON lineage and/or Scranton, KS. Carol Harrison McCoy - CJMcCoy@prodigy.net

Mitchum Family kbjkm.mitchum@ellinwood.com

We are specifically interested in contacting any descendants of the French families who settled in Osage County and Osage City. A large percentage of these families immigrated from the departments of Gard and Ardeche in southern France. Some came directly to Kansas, while another large group first settled in Nova Scotia (especially around Stellarton). We have a very basic web page started at http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Flats/2274/. Although it is simple now, we hope to load our database of over 1500 of these French, their parents and their descendants, as time permits. These families intermarried alot, in addition to coming from many of the same areas.

The initial names we are interested in are COLLIN, DARBOUSSET, ROUVIERE, PLANCHETT, and TROUSSIER, but any descendants of the Osage County French are sought. We are willing to share what we have.

I believe this family probably left Wales sometime in early 1884; with Jane possibly being pregnant at the time as David was born in Dec of 1884 in Kansas. I have no idea as to what port the family left from nor which they came to upon arrival in the US. The family settled in Arvonia, Osage County, Kansas and later moved to Lebo, Coffee County, Kansas about 1909.

Query: My great grandfather, Robert Marion Watson and his wife, Charlotte White Watson, were said, in his obituatry (1922, Alva OK), to have moved to Osage County Kansas in 1865. They were from Kokomo Indiana. Robert was born in Darke County Ohio in 1839. He joined the 12th Indiana Infantry, Co. B. in 1861, was mustered out in June 1862, and married Charlotte in 1863. They apparently lived in Osage County from 1865 until 1895. Charlotte died in 1893. Their children were Charles J., Ollie M., Mariam, and Robert Lee Watson. Robert moved to Holly Colorado with the children in 1885 and then in 1893 settled the Oklahoma Cherokee outlet, establishing a farm in M or Woods county, near Alva. The only thing is, the obitutary says that Osage County was :in tthe immediate neigborhood of the Indian Territory border", which it does not seem to be. I cannot find reference to the family in the Osage material on the web.

Query: I am looling for information on the following: HISTORY OF CALDWELL -- WILLIAM C. JORDAN

(Dealer in Pianos, Organs and Musical Instruments, Hamilton).

To the citizens of Caldwell county and the country which surrounds it, there is perhaps no name more generally or favorably known than that of William C. Jordan, whose business, since his establishment here in January, 1880, has achieved such proportions as leaves no doubt in the minds of those most skeptical as to the reliability of this house. A personal acquaintance with nearly every citizen of the different townships in this county has tended to make him exceedingly popular, and especially successful in the handling of his organs and pianos. His leading brands of the former are the William C. Jordan anti Sterling organs; while the Sterling and Paris pianos meet with ready sale. Another recognized cause of his large patronage is his extensive advertising, a feature which can not fail of producing the desired results. He is the pioneer in his line in this county, and he has numerous representatives' in Daviess, Livingston, Clinton, and other counties. William C. Jordan was born April 17, 1856, in Columbia county, O., his father being William J. Jordan, of the same State, and a prominent and leading attorney in the vicinity where he made his home. He married Miss Emily Crane, also a native of Ohio, and to them a family of eight children was born, of whom William C. was the eldest. His early scholastic advantages as he grew up tended to increase the natural desire which he possessed to follow the legal profession, and after fitting himself for its practice, under the careful and watchful guidance of his father, he was admitted to the bar in April, 1879. Subsequently he practiced with his father a short time but soon went to Osage county, Kan., from whence he traveled over all sections of the State. This he continued until his removal to Hamilton, as above mentioned. August 31, 1880, Miss Hattie R. Pickell became the wife of Mr. Jordan. She was born in Lancster county, Pa., the daughter of George Pickell. Mr. and Mrs. J. have two children: Maud and William J. He is a member of the A.F. and A. M., being a Royal Arch Mason.
