I'm trying to locate some information about my grandparents - John Henry Wells and Susie Scott. They were married in Columbus, KS on 4/27/1937. I'm particularly interested in the Wells' side of the family.

Am looking for any information on John Foley or his family who lived in Cherokee County according to the 1855 census and 1905 census. We believe he died there, but cannot find any info regarding death or burial. He was age 57 on the 1885 census. His wife, Mary, died and was buried in Illinois. Children known were Patrick, Owen, Daniel, Mary, & Ellen. Please contact me at
Thank you very much for any help you can give.

Topic: Where/What was Carter Springs
From: Don Read
Date: Wednesday, October 09, 2002 01:58 PM

My gr.grandfather's brother, Richard P. Reed (Read) was in Co, A, 10th Kansas Inf. He was on the 1st Indian Expedition and died of disease on Aug. 10, 1862. His Military records show that he died on the 'march from Carter Springs to Ft. Scott'. The Kansas Hist. Soc. shows a Carter's Spring somewhere in Cherokee County, Kansas. His burial is not recorded. I need to find what/where Carter Springs was. It does not appear in the book by the Kansas State Hist. Soc. as a Post Office in any time period. Any help would be most welcome. Thanks.
