Looking for Christian Storm was in Kansas with wife and 9 children prior to 1856. It is

believed that he and family lived in Atchison Co. prior to moving to Leavenworth.

He and a few of his sons are not listed on Leavenworth Directory after 1866. It is believed

that the family seperated and he & sons may have returned to Atchison.

I am looking for the death date of William Askey Snavely but have not had good luck with

death records so far. He is possibly buried in Atchison's Old Huron Cemetery. Does

anyone have access to that cemetery's records who could help? He was born in 1834 and

came to KS in 1878, eventually locating his family to Huron (probably before 1895).

Thanks for reading.
