I am searching for James FITZGERALD, son of John FITZGERALD. John was born in Ireland, to Edward ( or James) FITZGRALD and Mary BROTHER or BRUDER. He had at least four brothers that lived in St Clair County MI. He may have had a sister, Margaret FITZGERALD CADMAN that lived in Stafford Co for awhile. James lived in St John, Kansas. He was married, his wife's name was Jennie and they had a daughter, Mae. He also had a sister, Jennie. My mother visited them in about 1926 in St John. James was a retired farmer -age about 50-60. My grandmother also visited a few years before that.  Each came with Fred FITZGERALD, a brother of John's. Their surname was WELLS.

My great-grandfather, William Henry LOUEGAY, married a girl from Ray County, MO, on 05 JAN 1887.  Her name was Louise Kirtley BALL.  On their marriage license it says he is of Stafford County, Kansas.  He graduated from the University of Missouri School of Medicine in 1882.  I assume he was practicing medicine in St John.  Their only child, my grandmother, was born 06 MAY 1888.  I do not know whether she was born in St John, KS, or at her mother's home in Richmond, MO.  Is there anything in your old records to indicate that Dr LOUEGAY was practicing medicine when your county was newly established?  The reason I have homed in on St John in the county is because that town in on the back of some very early photographs of my grandmother.  I have reason to believe the three of them left for Denver, CO in the mid-1890's.  Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Looking for information on my gr. grandmother, Cora Alice BALES, born Nov. 27, 1874 in Ray or Caldwell Co. Missouri.  Her parents were Pleasant M. BALES and ??? PETERIE/PETREE.  Her mother died shortly after she was born and she was sent to live with her maternal grandmother in Kansas.  Quite possibly this was Melissa PETREE who was living with her son, John Andrew PETREE in Hays Township, Stafford County, Kansas, but this has not been verified.
Cora married Roy Leighton "Leat" SHIPLER on Febr. 26, 1893 and stayed in the Stafford, Rice and Reno county area until 1917 when they moved to Crowley Colorado to run a grocery store and cafe.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
