NAME: Anna LeBlanc
SURNAME: DETWILER
Seeking information regarding John Detwiler, temperance lecturer. Born in Pennsylvania, about 1827, Married Nancy Wade, 25 Apr 1846 in Boone County Illinois. Lived in Iowa before coming to area of Wamego. His son Zenas was postmaster in Wamego.

I've got a lot of info from cemetery, and census data. What I'm starting to suspect is that there two temperance lecturers with this name in Kansas during the 19th century.

I found one lecturer named J Detwiler in Rock Creek in 1880 census; he was listed as lecturer. He was the right age. No wife was listed, but right next door was a Z Detwiler, also the right age, with some of the right age people with him.

At the same time, in Wamego, was a family headed by John DEHIVELER (a plausible transcription disaster) also a lecturer, again with the right ages, and listing the right wife, son Zenas, also the right age, and several of the right children, plus a daughter with the right first name and a new last name and some children, plus a nephew I recognized but was surprised to find.

Any guesses as to what is going on here? Anyone have special insight about the temperance movement resources to check?

NAME: Arlene Luchsinger
SUBJECT: EMMETT (The Town of)
I am transcribing and editing 1930-36 diaries of two sisters (in their 20s) from Clay County, Ks. They both have entries for Sat. mornings in 1935 saying that they and members of the family went to Emmett. They don't seem to stay more than an hour or so, but no mention is made about why they went. Was there any sort of prison there during that time period; or perhaps what we would call a nursing home? My father was born in Emmett in 1909, but left in 1910, and no family members lived there after that. I doubt if it was a funeral as they went to Emmett from Green, (Clay Co.) Ks on about 10 consecutive Saturdays in summer and fall of 1935. I think they must have been visiting somebody! Their last name was Byarlay and other family members that accompanied them were named Heinen and Whetstine. Thanks for any help.

Searching for a list of children of Joseph MYERS who died in Pottawatomie County in 1894 and is buried in Westmoreland City Cemetery. According to his obituary, he fathered 17 children. His first wife was Eleanor MANN who died in 1846. He married his second wife, who survived him, Sarah WARE in 1853. I'm also searching for his approximate whereabouts during the 1850s through the Civil War (he served an Iowa regiment, I'm told).
I'm not certain, but the above man may be connected to my 3rd great grandfather, Samuel S. MYERS who was born in 1831 and died in 1897 in Pottawatomie County, KS and is also buried in Westmoreland City Cemetery. He married Charlotte N. LANE in Iowa in 1854 and moved to Pottawattomie Co., KS sometime after 1870. Samuel also served from Iowa during the Civil War from the 8th regiment. Charlotte filed for a widow's pension out of Kansas in 1897. Sometime after that, she moved to Oklahoma with her daughter and son-in-law, Lilly and George Kirby. I have been unable to find her death date.
I would love to hear from anyone who has any info on the above. I'm willing to share whatever info I have.
