Topic: Burial Place of Ida Goddard
From: Billy Walker bbwj45@havilandtelco.com
Date: Friday, December 31, 1999 10:09 AM

My Great Grandmother, Ida Goddard, is buried "somewhere" in Bourbon County. No one in my family knows where. There is a family tradition that she is buried in or near Garland, and that she probably died late 1918 (perhaps in connection with the flu epidemic). She would not have been an old woman at the time. She was married to Albert Edward Goddard who is buried in Wichita, and who died 1951. I am still getting my feet wet with Bourbon County (am experienced researcher, just don't know Bourbon County). Where could I begin with this one?

Looking for info. on GRt Grandparents, Alexander and Lucinda Fowler in Bourbon County after the Civil War.

My grandfather Thomas was born there, Lucinda died when he was about 2 yrs, year would be about 1886-87. I located a Lucinda listed at Franklin(have sent for copy of will listing that town)hopefully it is her. How far is Franklin from Fort Scott? Any help would be appreciated. Please email me
