My grandfather Charley Newton SILVERS was born
7/18/03 in Reno Kansas
My grandmother Lena Maude WINCHELL was born 3/17/05 in Lawrence Kansas

I am looking for the
SMITH family that settled
about five miles north of Sylvia, Reno County, Kansas in 1886. They were originally from Illinois.
The parents were George W. and Mary Ellen Cupp SMITH; there children were William
Nelson, John Henry (JH), Minni Maud, Eva, Clara, Rose, Ellen, and Joseph SMITH. It is possible that Rose, Clara, and Ellen may not have moved to
Kansas, but stayed in Illinois. I know Joseph came to Reno County, but no idea if he ever married.
The following children married and lived in Reno County:
William Nelson SMITH married Edna Caroline Johnson;
John Henry married Lucinda Mae Spence; (both are buried at
Minni Maud married James Clayton Abbot;
Eva married Orville Wright.
All of these families stayed in and around the Sylvia, Plevna, Huntsville area of Reno County. I am trying to get any information I can on these
relatives. I would appreciate any help or leads you might be able to give.

I am searching for my
Grandfather's (Ernest Earl INGRAHAM), cousin Isarel Palmer he was born abt.
1884/1885 in Missouri I believe he may have been born in Dade County, Mo. As
his parents Margaret INGRAHAM and George Palmer were married in Dade County,
Mo., July 15, 1883. Sometime after they moved to Kansas, somewhere in the
area of Reno County, Kansas. Isarel had one full brother Ernest Earl he died
as a small child I believe he died in about 1901. He had a half brother Fred
INGRAHAM but don't know if he knew of this brother or not as Fred was born
before Margaret and George married, he was not George's son so he stayed in
Dade County and was raised by this Grandparents Charles and Cornelia
Ingraham. Margaret and her siblings were born in Illinois and was there till
at least 1870. In 1875 she gave birth to Fred who was born somewhere in
Kansas, in 1883 she was in Dade County with her parents. Would appreciate
any information on INGRAM's, or INGRAHAM's I've found the family under both
