I am still trying to find information on Able V. CROW. I am pretty sure he was born in Cherokee County in 1863. Is there a town called Neosho or Galena? His mother's name was Rhoda C. PAYNE CROW. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Dee

Michael BURNS born in 1834, and Bridget KERNS born in 1837-1840.
Family operated a general store during the Civil War, and migrated West in a covered wagon with a party of 20( to include Pat and Michael Mannion) to Cherokee County in the twon Heammon Springs on claim land until about 1871. They had 10 children, Sarah, Richard, Michael, James, Patrick, Honora Burns (Born in Scammon, Ks on Oct 29, 1872), Margaret, Mary Ellen (Mollie) Lawrence, and Kathleen. While digging on his settlement, he struck a vein of coal. This discovery turn the settlement in to a Coal Mining Community, he sold his land, and he moved to Sumner County in 1871, and stayed long enough to file a claim on his property, and moved permanently to Sumner Cty in 1874.The family must have claim land near Scammon about 1866-1871, and 1874, moved to Sumner Cty.
