JOHN SHAWVER was born, Aug. 26th. 1817, near Steubenville, Ohio. On May 24th, 1846, he married Elizabeth Bogle in Cedar Co., Iowa. Between the years of 1853 and 1856, John Shawver removed his family to Havensville, Kansas, where he would be appointed Treasurer of Dist. No. 2. The first school was held in the district in 1863, in a frame building located on the northwest corner of the John Shawver farm. In 1866 he ran a blacksmith shop in Savannah. Sometime thereafter, John Shawver with family in tow, crossed the plains and settled in the Boise Valley Basin, near Caldwell, Idaho. His eldest son, Jacob Shawver married Jane Arbaugh in Seneca, Kansas. Infant daughter, Lovesa, is buried in an undisclosed location, probably in the area of Havensville.

WALTON posted by Julie Hoskins on Sunday, May 3, 1998

The obituary of my grandfather, David William Walton, states that he was born in Oneida, KS. All family records (Bibles, letters) give the birth date as Jan. 1, 1873. He was married to Elizabeth McEntee and they lived and died in Red Willow County, Nebraska. David Wm. Walton had six sisters who grew to adulthood: Anna, Rosa, Clara, Margaret May, Marie and Flora Bell. An LDS sheet shows that two, Clara and Margaret May, were born in Seneca, KS. However, the line for Clara and Margaret list Seneca as the town and Oneida as the County. This appears to be an error as I look at my map of Kansas. (I live in Oregon.) The main focus of my search is the father of this family, John A. Walton. I know that he was married to Flora Bell Cottar and that he died in Frontier County Nebr. in August, 1888. (I have genealogy of Flora Bell Cottar back to 1500's.) To sum up, (1) how can I verify that David William Walton was born in Oneida, KS,? (Even though the obituary says so, I wonder, because several sisters, both older and younger, were born in Cedar County Iowa.) And are there any records--census, newspaper or whatever--of John A. (Andrew?) (Anda?) Walton's presence in Nemaha County KS?

On his maternal side of the family, most were from Coal Creek, KS; Lillis, KS; Steubenville, KS or Centrailia, KS - but my great-grandfather (William J.
