Query: Am looking for relatives of my Grandmother. She was Maysel Julia Bussert, born May 5, 1912 in Wilson County, Neodesha, Kansas. The daughters of Milton E Bussert and Mattie (or Mettie) Blanche Longenbaugh. Her brothers were George, Roy, Harley, and Lynn. She had two sisters, Bessie and Oma. Bessie and Oma married brothers, Frank & Charles Lawrence. When Grandma was very little, the family moved to Arzina, Stevens County, Washington (near Rice). Both Bessie & Oma were married at that time and remained in Neodesha. I know that they were still living there in 1930 according to the obit for Mattie. Any information you have on either the Bussert or Lawrence families would be appreciated. Thank you.

Query: John WILSON m Lucy Elizabeth TOUSLEY 23 Apr 1878 in Noble Co IN. Lucy
was b 1 Mar 1854 in Noble Co IN d 30 Mar 1938 in Shelby OH but bur in
Sterling KS, supposedly with husband John - I have her obit.

They had at least 4 children: Blanche b 1879 & m Ellsworth FERRIS of
Shelby OH, Emma, Clyde, and Charles W.

Lucy grew up near Swan IN and in 1887 she & John moved to Neodosha,
In 1902 she/they moved to Sterling and lived on a farm of Dr W.E.
CURRIE in the South Ashland District. In 1911 she moved to CO (I
don't know if John was dead yet) and then she lived in Mt Grove MO
from 1920-1936 at which time she moved in with daug Blanche FERRIS in
Shelby OH where she died. The body was shipped back to Sterling KS
for burial.

I'm not sure if John is buried in Sterling (prob), Neodosha (poss), or
Colorado (questionable). I have no idea about their children.

Do any of you know these folks? John may be my ggguncle and Lucy is
the sister of my gggrandmother - the two families married brothers and
sisters.
