Montgomery County - MURDEN - TYLER Winfield Scott MURDEN born Oct 8, 1852 married Priscilla TYLER born Jan 10, 1857. They married August 1, 1874. Murden was a judge in Caney, Kansas. He was also a blacksmith and had a ferry across the Caney River. When the Tyler estate in Fredonia, Kansas (Wilson County) was settled, the family moved to Skedee, Oklahoma and purchased property. Winfield Scott MURDEN and Priscilla TYLER are both buried in the Skedee Cemetery. I am searching for Kansas ancestors/descendants.

Am seeking information on my great grandparents, Luis/Louis/Lewis Philippe GOODNOW (b.1852 in OH), and his wife Frances Josephine LUKENS (b.1860 in OH). They migrated to KS ca 1880-1883. All of their children were born in KS. My grandfather, Clyde Milton GOODNOW was born in Neodesha in 1883. I believe Luis Philippe Goodnow's parents were from OH, having migrated there ca 1840 from Wales.

I am trying to locate any possible data on my paternal side. I believe my dad (Irvin Orville CLAXTON) was born in Buffalo, KS, in Wilson County, when my granfather (Ervin C. CLAXTON) was working for the Buffalo Brick Company. My grandfather was married to a "Mabel Butler", this name may be wrong. It is my understanding that they moved to ElDorado during the depression era.
I would appreciate any help you could provide.
Warmest Regards,
Joe Claxton

I'm researching Peter HUGHEY, and possibly sons Robert and Jared, who settled in Wilson County about 1869. I am descended from one of Peter's other sons, Peter Miller HUGHEY, who settled in Adair County, MO about the same time. I have only recently made the Wilson County connection, so as of now I do not have much information to share!!

I am seeking information about YOUNG brothers Adam, Earnest, Jacob, and Theodore, and their descendants who lived in Montgomery and Wilson counties, KS, from the 1870s. They came there from Germany via New Jersey.
Their sons (including Charles, Phillip C., Samuel Augustus, William James, and others) resided in Barnes, Fredonia, Independence, Lay, Neodesha, and Sycamore. Philip (Phillip?) C. was a lawyer in Fredonia in 1905. He entered politics and died while campaigning for political office. His cousin, also named Philip C. was a lawyer in Barnes at the same time. A daughter, Mrs. George (YOUNG ) HILL, was Iiving in Independence in 1938.
William James YOUNG was my grandfather. I don't know which one of the original Youngs was my great-grandfather, but I think it may have been Adam.
I'd very much appreciate any information you could provide, and would be glad to reciprocate.
