I have a rather extensive information about Charles Lucas and his wife Sarah Watkins Lucas. Charles was born 1822 (TN) and died in Crawford County 1901. Sarah was born 1829 (KY) and died in Crawford County 1899. I have information on their descendants and their parents. I would be happy to share that information and to receive any biographical information others have about this family. One of their sons, John, was born in Crawford County, then came to Menard County, IL, and then came to Bourbon County until his death in 1953. Does anyone know anything about "Pitkin"? Is it a township in Crawford County? Thanks.

Am trying to find out what happened to Eugenia Catherine (Dray) who was born April 17, 1870 in Centralia, IL. Her parents were Henry S. Dray and Lucy Ellen (Gilbert) Dennon Dray. She went to Crawford Co., Kansas probably with her sister, Samantha Jane (Dray) who married John K. Bevins in Crawford Co. Eugenia married Enoch Hyatt on April 19, 1887 in Girard. This marriage only lasted about a month as she left him about May 26, 1887. They were divorced on July 22, 1891. Did she remarry? Eugenia died sometime between July 22, 1891 and April 15, 1915 as she is listed as deceased on her father's Civil War Pension Application. Is she buried in Crawford County, as her sister is buried in the Mt. Olive Cemetery in Pittsburg. Please help. Thank you. Tom Brewer

Married in Hancock Co, OH in 1848, Isaac MILLER b.1818 PA has dissappeared. His wife Mary COULTER MILLER is found in 1870 in Girard City, Crawford Co with 2 of her 4 (at least) children. Says she is an washerwomen. She was born in Ire. In the KS State 1875 census she is still listed in Girard, Crawford Co. as a farmer and with her are 3 of her children including Henry b. TX. ca 1861. No Isaac. By 1880 they all are in OR except Isaac. The KS Census' of those dates were very difficult to read at my sources. Are all of the copies of the US 1870 KS Census and the KS State Census of 1875 poorly filmed and VERY difficult to read? If not I will try again to view copies. Could you please let me know? Thank you for your time.

I am looking for information regarding Flora Allen Wilson, who was born in Montana in 1869. She and her family moved to Crawford County in about 1882-84. Her parents were Eli Allen, born 1839 in New York and Julia Poole Allen, born in 1843 in Delaware County, Ohio. Her siblings were Howard Elwyn Allen, born in 1866 in Montana, Orville, born in 1868, Alice, born in 1869, and Arthur, born in 1877, all born in Montana. The Allens lived in Crawford County until about 1900, when the parents and the three older children moved west with their families, eventually settling in Idaho. Howard married Emma Wolfe of Crawford County and they had 3 children of Crawford County before moving. Orville married Ella Ross of Crawford County. Alice married Wallace Baker before they moved to Idaho. Flora must have been married to ? Wilson before her family left. Arthur Allen also did not go west with the Allen group. Family stories say that Flora and Arthur both ended up in Missouri. Flora had 3 children, we believe: Stanley Wilson, Winnie Wilson, and Arthur Wilson. If she were married in 1885-1895, perhaps the Wilsons lived in Crawford County for a period of years, or maybe forever. Nobody remembers Arthur ever marrying. I would like to find records of Flora and Arthur. Here in Idaho we have the information on everybody who moved west. I'd appreciate any help and would even be willing to look up Idaho information, in gratitude.

FREAR, FRIAR / HACKLER / NAUMAN / JOHNSTON / HORSLEY: My great grandmother, Elsie May FREAR was born 10/4/1895 in Walnut, Crawford County, KS: daughter of Fred Nauman FREAR and Nora Lee HACKLER. Her grandparents, Andrew Bucannan FRIAR and Elizabeth NAUMAN Friar, settled in the Walnut area in about 1869 or '70, having come from Oak Ridge, New York. Elsie's sister, Emma Geneiva Frear JOHNSTON (b. 10/28/1898) lived her entire life in Walnut.
The FREAR's lived on a farm that bordered on the HORSLEY farm, and the family's shared this cemetery. I visited it once many years ago and discovered Andrew Bucannan FRIAR's stone among the trees and brambles. My great grandmother had told me that the Horsley family ran the stage stop at Walnut, and that they (someone in the family) murdered travellers and buried their bodies in the HORSLEY/FRIAR Cemetery. I would like to know if this story is based in fact or if it was just a little girl's over-active imagination. So please, if you know anything about the Horsley's or have any connection or interest in my family lines, please contact me.

James A. Verett email@example.com
Would like to share information with anyone interested in the FENOGLIO, VERETTO, GADDO, REANO, PERONA, BUFFO, BERTA and other northern Italians from the Turino province of the Piedmonte region. Many came to the Will and Grundy Co IL coalfields in the late 1870s and early 1880s. When the mines closed, many came to work in the coalfields of Osage Co KS and lived there in the 1890s and early 1900s. Many then moved to the mines of Pittsburg and Coal Co OK. My ancestors then moved to Montague Co TX and became farmers. These families intermarried and traveled together from place to place. I have a database on each surname and am trying to link the name together by kinship.
