I am trying to find out if Mary K RIEF who died  Feb 7,1899 and her father Siefert or Sievert RIEF who died  Feb 7,1922 in Butler County KS are buried in  cemetery there. From what I can read in our newspaper there is no indication they were brought here but a Mary K's name, date of death and age were on a family marker that was in a cemetery in Pennington County, it no longer can be seen but it was seen. It has been widely believed that Siefert was also brought here to be buried with his wife and four children who all died here in the 1890's. I am putting up a cemetery on findagrave and I want to know if they really were buried here. Can someone help me with this?

Trying to find out where Rebecca MORGAN 1st wife of Jacob T. ROBINSON is buried. They were in the census in 1880 in Douglas Township, Butler County, Kansas. By Aug. 9, 1888 Jacob was in Newton County, Arkansas marrying Martha Jane BETHANY. Very little is known about Rebecca other than her family gave Jacob a hard time about their 3 children after her death. The ROBINSON family says that is why he left Kansas and went to Arkansas where his family was living. I would like to have some info about her if anyone has any.

I am looking for information on Leland A SCHUCH and wife Frances E SCHUCH, who were living in Butler county, Kansas in 1930, in the town of Augusta.  Leland is said to have divorced Frances and put her in a mental institution.  They had a son and a daughter.  The surname sometimes was misspelled as SCHUCK.  Leland died December 20, 1952 and is buried near Del Norte, Colorado where he was born.  His father was Philip SCHUCH Jr.  Frances died July 1976 in Cowley County, Kansas.

Looking for information on John Benjamin KING, also known as J. B. KING, or Benjamine KING who migrated to the El Dorado area in the mid-1800's and remained there until his death in the early 1900's. John Benjamin owned a grocery store in El Dorado as early as 1900, maybe before. His known children were John B., Marion, Mary, Henry, Minnie and Willie (William).  John was born in Louisiana. All information appreciated.

Guy Noyes GIBSON lived at 121 N Central, El Dorado, Butler County, Kansas. His draft card (hard to read) states he was b 1885, Dec 30. He was married to Nan (Beulah Leonna). It states he was a jeweler for a L G????  He must have worked out of his home because business address is his home.  The family lore that he boarded a train and was never heard from again, probably robbed and murdered.  Can you tell me the name of the jeweler and if there is any newspaper articles about Guy GIBSON?
