Judith Wood Hinton (judithhinton@yahoo.com)  28 June 2008
I am researching my ancestor, PHOEBE WOOD. She married GEORGE LISLE 10 Oct 1833 in Ohio and accompanied her husband to Kansas. She was born 11 Dec 1814 in Belmont County, Ohio and died in Chetopa, Kansas 6 Jan 1863. I am interested in a death notice or obituary. Her parents were Abraham WOOD and Jane (LEWIS) WOOD. I would appreciate any information or direction that you could give me.

Dan'l Markham (danlm@roadrunner.com)  15 June 2008
The MARKHAM family and the GRAHAM family, my ancestors, came through Neosho County around 1870, to prepare to take the Oregon Trail to Oregon, eventually ending up downriver (Columbia River) from Portland, Oregon, in Ilwaco, Washington.  I am interested in finding whatever information I can about Dan MARKHAM and his son Daniel MARKHAM.  It is unclear how long the lived in Neosho County coming their from Ohio via Illinois, Dan MARKHAM being with the Illinois Calvary, 2nd Regiment, during the Civil War.  I find record of Dan MARKHAM being in Neosho in 1870, but unsure when they arrived and when the left, only knowing they arrived in Ilwaco, Washington in 1879.  The GRAHAM family married into the MARKHAM  family and I assume were in Neosho County as well.

I'm the granddaughter of Berch Louie (BALDWIN) & Harry Clay HUNT, both natives of Neosho Co., Kansas. Harry was a banker, later an abstractor with an office at the courthouse in Erie. Berch was a school teacher but also worked in the bank at Shaw and the courthouse in Erie.

Will gladly share and exchange information.

Ed Schneck (fairwayed@aol.com)  13 May 2008
John W. OVERMAN (b. 1854) migrated from Jackson County, Indiana to Neosho County sometime between 1880 and 1890. The 1895 Kansas Census has him in Mission Twp with his wife M.E., born in TN and his two daughters, born 1891 and 1893.  His wife evidently died in Neosho County between 1896 when their son John was born and 1900. John has returned to Indiana with his children and is living again in Jackson County with his mother and brother in the 1900 Federal Census. I am looking for M.E.'s burial site and her full name.

I am looking for the cemetery where my Great-Grandmother was interred.  Her name was Sarah Mary (Gordin, -on) SMITH. She was born 15 Feb 1861 in Madison Co., OH and died 20 Mar 1917, supposedly in Altoona, KS. However, I know most of her children were born in Thayer, which I believe is in Neosho County.
Her husband was William Edgar SMITH, she had 4 children, Nellie E., Nina R, Harry A, Harley L.  It would also be helpful, if you locate the cemetery, to know the plot, or how to find her in the cemetery.  I would also be interested in knowing in which newspaper(s) an obituary might have appeared.
