Am looking for information on Perry Singrey and/or Roy Curtis Singrey. They lived near Baxter Springs from about 1893 to 1922. They went to Cherokee County from Indiana to work for R. O. Thomas.

Family stories have it that Perry also ran a Dry goods and Feed store in Baxter Springs. Is there anyone out there that knows of these two men. Perry married a woman while there, I believe her name was Ida Beasley. Some children went to school there, and at least one may be buried in a cemetery near Baxter Springs.

Is there a historical book of businesses in Baxter Springs or something of this nature that I can purchase that would have this type of store listed?
