I pretty sure the address is 1900 Galena Ave, Galena, Kansas. The School and school yard take up the whole block. I know this because my grandparents lived in the house across the street from it (1808 Galena Ave) from 1945 to 1980.

Sorry, No I am not looking for James Allen Price or James Archer - Just James Allen who was born in Illinois in 1863/1864 and lived in Weir, Cherokee Co., KS in 1900. He had no middle name. Named after his father. And his surname was Allen. I may have found him in a cemetery book on Cherokee County Cemetery Inscriptions. But thank you for your responses.

I am a direct descendent of the Moorheads. Quite a history. Family immigrated from Scotland/Ireland in 1700's to Franklin Co., Pa.; Indiana Co., Pa.; Westmoreland Co., Pa.; Armstrong Co., Pa.; Guernsey Co., Ohio; then west to Ill; KS; etc. If you have any knowledge of anyone in any of these states, you are probably a descendent. Try the LDS site lost of info there; also try Karen Moorhead @ she has lots of info on the following web site you'll need the whole thing. If your trail leads back to Ohio, get in touch with me @
Good Luck!
