I have ancestors who lived in Shawnee, Kansas in the mid 1800s. They came from Ohio and then moved on to Oklahoma by the 1870s. Their last names were Dushane, Prophet and Cheek. Would any of you have any suggestions as to where I might find out more about them? I have used the US Census records and the new US Indian Census records that just came out. I can find some of them but oddly, not the husbands, just the wives and the children. This is odd because the husbands were Shawnee, too, and were listed with their families on the Federal Census records. I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks
