NAME: David Howard
SUBJECT: Death Record - Esther Knight
I have a question about Pottawatomie Co. death records. Would any death records exist for the year 1879? I have a grandmother who died in Pottawatomie Co. in 1879. She was Esther Knight & was living with her son David Knight at the time of her death.

NAME: Steve Scully
SUBJECT: George C Welsh
Iím trying to find some criminal or prisoner records for my great grandfather, George C. Welsh. George was one of the many black sheep in our family. I have a newspaper account of his arrest for destroying the newspaper offices of the St. Mary Journal in Wamego, Kansas, in June, 1896. It seems George became disillusioned with the St. Mary Journal over its reporting of taverns operating in the area without the proper permits. The following August, George was additionally charged with maintaining a bar/tavern without a permit. In the 1900 census, George is listed as a ďprisonerĒ in the Rock Creek Township, Pottawatimie, Kansas. Iím assuming he was incarcerated on the charges above and spent sometime in custody as a guest of the Kansas taxpayers. I was hoping to find information on where he was held prisoner and any associated records of his incarceration. I didnít know where to begin to look for such records or if they even exist from that time period. George C. Welsh Born 1863 in Iowa Married to Mary Effie Isenhart in St. Maryís Kansas Daughter, Willa Belle Welsh born in St. Maryís, Kansas August 4, 1888 Please let me know if you need any additional information. I sincerely appreciate any assistance that you may be to give

NAME: Ralph Hull
SUBJECT: Coates Family
I have relatives, Moses Clark Coates and family buried in the Havensville Cemetery and I am trying to get some more information on this family. I am really interested in pictures of the area and any information concerning him. Also, if there is anyone else looking for the Coates family, I purchased a book on line titled: A genealogy of Moses and Susanna Coates who settled in Pennsylvania in 1717 which has a lot of information concerning the Coates family. Moses and Susanna Coates was the great great grandparents of Moses Clark Coates. Any information will be helpful. Thank you in advance.
