HALL Sandy McDoniel Tue Dec 31 14:47:57 1996
I am looking for any information about my grandfather, George Edgar HALL. He was born in England in c 1865. He disappeared in Cherokee county in approx. 1912-1913. I need to know what happened to this man. He left a wife, Louisa (Minnie) Jane with child and 4 small children. The baby died and the 4 children lived with Louisa's family in Wichita after her death in 1914. All the children were a ward of the state and the smallest was adopted. All children managed to find one another after several years, but the entire family is puzzled about their father. They lived on a farm outside of town (this information was passed on from what all the children could remember)and George has gone looking for work when he disappeared. Maybe there was a body found and could not ever be identified. Can anyone help me to ease our families minds. Should you have any informatio please feel to contact me at my address or telephone number below. Sandy (Hall) McDoniel 921 N. Woodlawn

I am interested in finding reference to John Lawrence RHEA marriage record . He married Margaret Anna Clarissa EIDSON, August 29, 1874. In a obituary, and in a journal it states that they were located near Columbus, Cherokee Co. Ks. He had one daughter born there in 1876.
Before that he was married to Mary Ann TURNER, both being from Waverly Morgan Co. Indiana. They and their children removed to Cherokee Co. near Columbus in 1872. His wife and three of his children died there. Only one daughter survived. Julia Louisa Rhea.One child of that three died in Oct. 1873, his name Lewis. In 1879 he removed to Rockville, Miami Co. Ks.
Also looking for Marriage Record of his brother James Harvey Rhea m. Mary Jane ALDERSON Sept. 27, 1874, same area. They remained in Cherokee Co. until 1877, October when they, on their way to Iowa, came upon Rockville, and decided to stay.
Would appreciate any help you could give. I know James Harvey went to work at a lumber yard there after Oct. 1873.

ELLIS Kay CaldwellFri, 20 Dec 1996 21:19:03 -0600
I am looking for the name of the parents of Doris ELLIS, born 15 Dec. 1902, in Crestline, KS. I could not find her as an 8 year old girl in the 1920 census, so perhaps her parents moved prior to 1910. Either her parents or grandparents were full-blooded Indians, I believe. I would welcome any advise on how to find her parents or grandparents.
