Great-Great-Grandmother Elizabeth PORTEOUS says she died in 1886. There is no
other dates. I would like to know more about her death. I have contacted the

Archives in Boston, MA. I also contacted the archives at the Santa Fe Trail
Museum where they have a depository of local history. So far, nothing is being

My wife's Great-Grandfather,
Michael CLINE, lived in Larned -- and we believe he died there, too, in the
range of 1910 - 20, and we're trying to pin down IF he died there, and if so
when. He was born 1854 in Virginia, married Amanda ANDES of Virginia, and moved
west in the late 1880's. Can you help us? Would very much appreciate it!

My Great-Great Uncle John Rouse
VAMPLEW lived in a sod house in Keysville Township around 1878-1882. It
had two rooms, bedroom/living room and kitchen. The four-poster bed held
up the roof in the center of the combo room. I have searched the web and
contacted KSHS, the only Pawnee County soddie image I received was built later
I would be interested if someone had an image of a Pawnee County "soddie"
amongst their family photos they would be willing to share.

I am trying to find out if Daniel
OSBOURN & his son, Eli F. OSBOURN, died in Pawnee County. Daniel died 16
Oct 1880 & Eli died 30 Apr 1882. Also need to see if anyone has record of
Daniel's widow, Sarah Jane (GOFF) OSBOURN, marriage to a James Porter MAXFIELD.
It occurred 6 October 1881. I am trying to help a cousin on the OSBOURN
situation. Am going bonkers on the MAXFIELD situation as my gg-grandma, Melissa
(SWANDER) GOFF, married a James Porter MAXFIELD in Kingman Co. Is it the same
fella? That's the question of the day.
