I am seeking information on the family of Francis McCormick. Mr. McCormick, a Methodist
minister, retired in Wichita about 1932 after a long career in the area. He had married
Susan Campbell McLeod. They had three children, Susan Campbell, Francis Edgar, and Dora
Cathrine. I believe Susan married Margo (sp?) Wright and they had two children, Margo M.
and James F. My information runs out at that point but I do have some details on Mr.
McCormick's ancestors. I would be happy to share what I have with anyone concerned.
