I am asking for help in finding the background of Alice Josephine LYONS born Dec 1874 Kansas.  As she married in Neosho County Kansas to Oliver Morton McLELAND 3 Mar 1895 Neosho Kansas and lived in Walnut Grove as his wife I am assuming that she too was from that general area.  The only family I found that maybe her family is that of J B LYONS who died in 1926 Neosho and was buried (probably by daughter) Rebecca E Wright.  I Would like the census of State  Census lookup on her as well as 1880 Federal Census,.. perhaps 1885 Provincial. This should give me an accurate picture of where she came from.  The 1920 census states both her parents were born in Illinois. She lived in Deerlodge Montana by then; a divorcee as a private housekeeper to the man she later married with her daughter and his mother.  Thank You.

I am looking for birth information, perhaps how to get a birth certificate, for Marguerite E. SMITH born in Kansas in about April 1904.  Her parents were William Alexander SMITH and Lulu (or Lula) May SMITH. The 1905 Kansas Census shows them living in Thayer City, Neosho, KS. Marguerite's father was a "Preacher" and moved frequently, probably living in Kansas no more than 5 or so years (1902 earliest, 1909 latest) Any help or clues on obtaining additional info or documentation.  Thank you.

I am trying to do a matrilineal genealogical search.  My uncle recalls going to a family funeral in Chanute, Kansas when he was little, but he doesn't remember the name of the deceased.  This would have been in the 1930s.  Can anyone find out if there were any REYNOLDS or PHILLIPS that died in Chanute in the 1930s, related to Oliver Dee John PHILLIPS (my grandpa) or his wife, Nellie Faye PHILLIPS, nee REYNOLDS; or maybe Oliver's parents, whose names were likely William PHILLIPS and Susan YOUNG.

According to my research, I found a marriage of ancestors in Neosho County, Kansas. William E. GREENWELL married Retta Della (or Della Retta) Mort on January 1, 1895.  This information was located on the LDS website.  I have a relative who has located a William E. GREENWELL in the 1880 Osage Mission, Neosho County, Kansas census.  It states he was born abt. 1864 in Illinois.  His father was Robert E. GREENWELL born in Kentucky and Ann E. born in Illinois.  I also located a William GREENWELL in the 1880 Grant, Neosho, Kansas census born abt 1859 in Kentucky.  Father was James born in Kentucky and Eliza born in Kentucky.  Is there anyway to determine if the William E. GREENWELL born abt. 1864 is the correct William GREENWELL?  Any assistance you can give would be greatly appreciated.
