Am seeking info on Julia McDANIEL and Maudie/Audie McDANIEL.  We believe they died in Butler County between 1884 and 1889.  Julia was wife to Charles G. McDANIEL.  Maudie was born in about 1882.  Neither arrived in Arkansas in 1900.  Family history says that they had died.

I am a descendent of Lars Eric and Anna Charlotta JANSSON/JOHNSON/LARSON. I am not sure if Lars is referred to as a LARSON, since his name in Swedish records is Lars Eric JANSSON, but my Grandfather said his father changed his name to LARSON when he immigrated to the U.S. I find him and his wife in other U.S. records as Lars and Charlotte JOHNSON.

Lars and Charlotte (JANSSON) apparently settled with their daughter Gustafva Charlotta, whose married name was WALLENSTROM, in the Salina KS area, probably about a mile north, according to my grandfather's journal. He is buried in Rosalia Cemetery.

Charles W. FAIR was my Great-Grandfather. He was married to Sarah ?? and had three daughters (Ada, Lucy & Geneva).  In the 1920 census he is living in  El Dorado, Butler County, Kansas with wife and two daughters, Lucy and Geneva.  The census also shows an infant girl whom Geneva is listed as the mother of.  CW was born in MO in 1856. In the late 1890's they were in Arkansas and then show on census records as living in Caldwell, Kansas  through 1910+.  Sarah shows on the California 1930 census living with Geneva and husband George STROUD in California and is listed as a widow.  Did CW die in El Dorado and if so, where is he buried? Thank you for your help.

Ruth Brown (gerrybrown1@aol.com)  19 February 2008
Needing information regarding the prairie fire that killed the two WIGGINS children buried in the Adams Family Cemetery, Potwin, Kansas.  The names and dates on the stones are Frank and James, year of death for both is listed 1880 on the cemetery listing.  However, the book by Elsie Higdon Smith, "Potwin Christian Church - a History" indicated the children were named Frankie and Elsie and that they died in 1868.  Amy Adams gave an interview to the local paper regarding the Adams Family Cemetery and she indicated that the children were named Jimmie and Elsie and that they died in 1898.  Their parents are Horace WIGGINS and Elizabeth Jane (PITZER) WIGGINS .   Any information about this family and the correct dates of death would be greatly appreciated.
