Marion County KS Family History


Peabody, Marion County, Kansas, USA sits in wheat country near the edge of the Flint Hills. It is only a few miles on US Highway 50 from Chase County, the setting of William Least Heat Moon's book, PrairyErth. The early economy was driven by farming and cattle, and in the 1920's by an oil boom.

I have never lived in Peabody. My parents, like many of her children, sought opportunities elsewhere. But my grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins lived there and a few generations before them. As a child I visited often. Surrounded by talk of Peabody families and by their graves on Memorial Day, I started this list to try to make sense of it all.

Most of Peabody's early residents were white folk from the East and people from other lands, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Denmark, Mexico, and Mennonites from Russia. In 1880 Peabody had a black doctor, Dr. Charles Flippin. Some people had American Indian ancestors, or roots in Asia. Lawrence Cooper moved to the Philippines, married there, and some his children lived in Peabody for a time.

Peabody's current residents have worked hard to keep the town healthy. They have preserved the wonderful old housing and the 19th century downtown and organized events for residents and non-residents to enjoy. But for those who left and their descendants, Peabody is a more ephemeral place, a place of memories and dreams,
