Pierce HERRICK (1804-1887) is said to have died in Larned, Pawnee County, Kansas 26 Apr 1872.  I would like to know if and where he is buried in Larned. His sister, Edith (HERRICK) ROWLEY (1813-1904), is also said to have died in Kansas.  Any information on either of these two folks would be greatly appreciated. They were from Caton, Steuben Co., NY. Thanks.

I just learned that a Great-Uncle of mine Joseph Bennet MOSS, was in Larned, Kansas in 1909.  He had a brother killed here in WV. and there was an article about it the in your newspaper. I have been looking for him in Kansas for a long time.  I would appreciate any and all info you could give me on him while he was there.

The headstone inscription for my Great-Great-Grandmother Elizabeth PORTEOUS says she died in 1886. There is no other dates. I would like to know more about her death. I have contacted the KSHS and the Kansas Vital Records - no information. Death records for the state don't go back that far. I have searched newspapers for Larned and Garfield - nothing found. The Congregational church she belonged to no longer exists in Garfield, Pawnee County, Kansas. I have been searching for someone who knows where the church records were deposited OR if they still exist. I have contacted churches in Larned and Kinsley along with the main Congregational Church Archives in Boston, MA. I also contacted the archives at the Santa Fe Trail Museum where they have a depository of local history. So far, nothing is being found.

Would anyone on this list be able to help? Are there any undertaker records available from that time?

My wife's Great-Grandfather, Michael CLINE, lived in Larned -- and we believe he died there, too, in the range of 1910 - 20, and we're trying to pin down IF he died there, and if so when. He was born 1854 in Virginia, married Amanda ANDES of Virginia, and moved west in the late 1880's. Can you help us? Would very much appreciate it!

Seeking descendents of George STURGIS and his daughter, Grace, who married A. C. HAMILTON of Topeka, Shawnee County, Kansas, late 1800's. George was from LaGrange County, Indiana- his wife, Mary J., was daughter of my Great-Great-Grandfather, Gary P. NEWNAM of LaGrange Co., Indiana.

My Great-Great Uncle John Rouse VAMPLEW lived in a sod house in Keysville Township around 1878-1882.  It had two rooms, bedroom/living room and kitchen.  The four-poster bed held up the roof in the center of the combo room. I have searched the web and contacted KSHS, the only Pawnee County soddie image I received was built later than 1882.
I would be interested if someone had an image of a Pawnee County "soddie" amongst their family photos they would be willing to share.

Looking for information about Lewis E COLLINS and family.  Lived in Grants Township, Pawnee, Kansas and Marena Twp, Hodgeman, Kansas between 1900 - 1930.

Sheryl Hardcastle (panhandlekid@yahoo.com)  28 February 2006
I am trying to find out if Daniel OSBOURN & his son, Eli F. OSBOURN, died in Pawnee County.  Daniel died 16 Oct 1880 & Eli died 30 Apr 1882.  Also need to see if anyone has record of Daniel's widow, Sarah Jane (GOFF) OSBOURN, marriage to a James Porter MAXFIELD.  It occurred 6 October 1881.  I am trying to help a cousin on the OSBOURN situation. Am going bonkers on the MAXFIELD situation as my gg-grandma, Melissa (SWANDER) GOFF, married a James Porter MAXFIELD in Kingman Co. Is it the same fella? That's the question of the day.

Holly Ness (nanny72651@yahoo.com)  11 January 2006
