Any information on John Richard McCOY and second wife Bridget (SMITH) McCOY.  He moved to Neosho County in 1901 after the death of his first wife Biddy McCOY.  He had 5 sons and sent 4 of them to Neosho County (from Illinois) and bought 5 farms. Their names are: Charles Luther McCOY, Samuel Lawrence McCOY, Edward Lee McCOY and John Lewis McCOY.  He lived with John for a bit as shown on the census, then married a widow name Bridget SMITH.  Late husband was William.

I would like to find info if possible on the locations of the farms and where the sons are buried.  Anything more would be great as well!

Ruth Lucchesi (ruth@lucchesi.org)  23 August 2008
I am tracing Truman T. GILBERT (born Oct 1830, unknown city, New York) and his wife Elmira (Almira) (MARTIN) GILBERT (Born 19 Mar 1834 Southwold Township, Ontario Canada) who lived for many years in Neosho County.  I find them listed as follows:

  • 1900    Walnut Grove Township

  • 1880 Walnut Grove Township

  • 1870 Erie Township

Elmira died 19 Mar 1904, probably in Neosho County.  I don't know when Truman died, but neither of them are listed in the 1910 census for Neosho county.  Can you locate either cemetery or death records for this couple?

Additionally, I found two children born to this family...Annie/Anice (born ca 1857) and Owen (born ca 1863) both born in their prior residence of Rock Grove City, Floyd County, Iowa.  The 1900 census lists Elmira as having 3 children, 1 of whom is living.  Both of these children disappear from the census after 1870; the girl because she married and the boy perhaps because he died.  Do you have any death records for these children?  Do you have any birth/death records for the illusive third child? 

Assuming that Annie/Anice was the child who lived, might there be any marriage records for her?

Hallie Garner (hallie_garner@gmail.com)  29 July 2008
I am trying to get information about a woman named Kittie/Kitty Mae SCHISLER. Her maiden name was LAWSON and she was from Hancock County, Tennessee. This has been a fairly consistent spelling, but it a name that has lots of variations. I can find nothing on the Social Security Death Index, although relatives say she definitely died. She was alive in 2004--would be in her 80s now or when she died.

I'm looking for information on Elmira SHREVE. My Elmira was the daughter of Israel SHREVE and Rebecca EGGMAN.  She was born in Tazewell County Illinois abt 1858.  She is included in the 1860 and 1870 census with her parents.  Searching the web, I found an entry under "Complete Name Index to History of Neosho County, Kansas" for a SHREVE, Elmira (Tucker), 297.  Two of the brothers did move to Kansas.  They died in Saline County Kansas.  Could you provide me with any info on Elmira (SHREVE) TUCKER?
