Query: I am looking for information on Mary Johnson WALL who came to Bourbon County with her youngest daughter Harriet and son-in-law John Swisher. One record says she was buried in the Boulware Cemetry, Franklin Twnshp. No mention of such a cemetery is at the GNIS site. I assume it ws on land farmed by Mark Boulware whose bio is in Cutler's HISTORY OF KANSAS. I need a death date for Mary in hopes of finding an obituary.

I am looking for documentation on the following people as all I have for information is that they were born in Kansas. They moved to Lamar, Barton Co. MO. 1893 form somewhere in Kansas. I figured maybe they moved from a bordering county in Kansas. There names are listed below and if you can find do a lookup so I can find the birth place of their parents or children I would greatly appreciate it.

ANDERSON, Calvin S. Jun 1859 KY
wife Minnie(Hughes)Oct 1886 IN
Iola(Dau) Feb 1888 KS
Charley(Son) Nov 1889 KS
Ray(Son) Oct 1891 KS
*Lester(Dau) Jun 1893 KS
Ella(Dau) Dec 1896 MO

I got this information from the 1900 Census for Barton Co., MO.

*It is listed as a daughter and I know that is a strange name for a girl but it was listed that way in both the census and soundex files.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
David Anderson

Query:
Looking for parentage of Benjamin F WorKman/WorTman, born 1825 Zanesville,Muskingum Co., Ohio, died 1876 Fort Scott, Bourbon County, Kansas; buried "Large" cemetery at Cato.
We were in Fort Scott a year ago almost to date and visited the Library and the Genealogy Soc with no results. Were looking for the obits of both Benjamin and his wife, Dianah WorKman who died 1885, same as above. Odd that both their death dates were missing. The dates were there for before and after each of them and about 10 years apart.
I need Benjamin F WorTman/WorKman's parents to connect. They are my missing link.
I have Dianah WorKman's line very far back. Anyone need that info, I will reply.
Thanks for your time.
