Trying to locate any Hathaways who were living in Kansas during the late 1800's.
Jacob Hathaway had a daughter named Vera Grace born April 1883. According to the
1900 Oklahoma census Grace and both her parents were born in Kansas. She was buried in Empire, Kansas, so thought they may have lived in Cherokee County. Thanks for any help.
