Query: The OSAGE County History mentions John Skidmore as settling on Dragoon Creek at the time the County was formed. A Charles Skidmore is mentioned in the Osage County portion of William G. Cutlers's "History of the State of Kansas" as being robbed of personal property in 1857. Were these two Skidmore men related, if so how? Is there a possibility that the two names may be the same person? We are particularly concerned with Charles for this is the first indication to us that such a person was there.

Query: Need information on Hiram L. HAMPTON and wife, Jennie, who moved to KS in c.1882. Lived near Olathe, in Rantoul, Norwood and Homewood, died 1922 in Osage City KS. Need childrens' names and marriages......any other data on this family. They originally lived W. VA and OH.
Am trying to find what happened to the wife of Hiram's deceased brother, Levi HAMPTON, who died in Jefferson Co. IA in 1882. Her name was Clara STIDGER HAMPTON. She probably remarried after husband Levi died as she was only in her 20's......can't find who she married or when. Also looking for any STIDGER......one, in particular, Harmon STIDGER, was last found in Van Buren Co. IA (1900 IA census). No record of him after that date in Iowa.
Any help on either HAMPTON or STIDGER certainly appreciated. Glad to exchange info with anyone interested.
