In 1900 census, Lemuel DUNSHEE, age 76, and his wife Rebecca Catherine (SWIFT) DUNSHEE (Listed as Roas C.), age 63, were living with James Melville DUNCAN and Cora Belle (DUNSHEE) DUNCAN, their daughter, in Stafford County, Kansas.   By 1908 Lemuel was dead and Rebecca was living wiht Alfred Madison ATWELL and Louwilda (DUNSHEE) ATWELL (another daughter) in Woodward County, Oklahoma.  Woodward Co. probate reveals guardianship application for Rebecca's estate by ATWELL, but nothing further.  Especially seeking information related to location of death and burial of Lemuel and Rebecca, but any DUNSHEE or DUNCAN information appreciated.
Of further interest, in 1900 census James Melville DUNCAN's occupation appears to read "Peddler Medicine", although the writing is difficult to read.  Would like to learn more details about this interesting occupation.

Seeking information about James Melville DUNCAN (b. ca 1858, Indiana) and his wife, Cora Belle (DUNSHEE) DUNCAN (b. 29 Sept 1861, Iowa) who married in Pratt County 13 Nov. 1893.  They reportedly moved to Syracuse in the early 1900's.   James was listed as a "medicine salesman" on the 1900 Stafford County, Kansas census.  Children: Jessie )b. Sept 1882); William L. (b. Dec. 1891); and Lloyd (b. June 1897).
Cora's parent's Lemuel and Rebecca DUNSHEE were enumerated
with the DUNCAN's in 1900. James was first married to Cora's sister, Laura Elmy (DUNSHEE), who probably died in Pratt County, Kansas ca 1892.

Wanting to make contact with any current descendant of Alfred and Rebecca HARDY COOK.   They came to the US about 1853 with dad and brothers/sisters via NY, then Dayton, Ohio, where some stayed, others went to IN., IL., MO., and KS.  Alfred ended up in the vicinity of KS/OK border.  His brother's daughter, also ended up in the vicinity, but I think they lost track of each other.  

Many area names are COOK, BOYLE, BERRY, HARDY, CLIFF, CONYERS, PARIS, LUSCH, HOOD, MURROW, DURKEE, STENGLE, ZOOK, GAMBLE, are all related, thru the two branches of families.

Alfred came to St. Johns area about 1870. Not sure if his wife's family, the HARDY's went also, or if they stayed in Clay County, Illinois.
