Elizabeth Cordelia PIERCE married Ephraim Chalmers QUICK. She is in the 1885 Kansas Census at Florence, age 55, a widow. (Mrs. Chalmers E. QUICK) I want to find out if she died there, when and where she was buried. She came there in about 1872, and story goes that she ran a coffee shop near the railroad. Not sure if this was a separate coffee shop from the Clinton Hotel, which was a Harvey House.

I am looking for my great grandparents family and descendents who lived in Gale township in the 1880 period and may still have family in that area.

I am looking for Ernst or Ernest D. KOEHN and his son Cornelius E. KOEHN.  I have a plat map in the book "The Helpless Poles," and it shows 3 Cornelius KOEHNs in the 1890 plat map of McPherson County, but all our information says they moved from Marion County to Oklahoma in 1890 or thereabouts.  So, am trying to figure it all out.  If you could help me, I would really appreciate it.  If you can't but have some ideas where  I could go, that would be appreciated as well.

I am researching David H. PUGH who appeared last on the 1920 census in Tampa, Marion County, Kansas, living with his elder sister Malinda (PUGH) LIVERSAY, and his youngest daughter Nora or Lora. David and Malinda were born in Grayson County, Virginia. I have not been able to find David on the 1930 census and wonder if anyone knew anything about this PUGH family.

I would like to know who has the platt of where people are buried in the Prairie Lawn Cemetery at Peabody and the Lincolnville Cemetery at Lincolnville? We came to Marion County last weekend and stop at the Prairie Lawn Cemetery at Peabody to look for my grandparents graves, which we did not find.  My grandparents were Harry L. REED and Mary Jane (GLASSINGER) REED. Also could not find my aunt that is buried in the Lincolnville Cemetery, her name is Martha KUGLER.  I found some of my SCHMIDT relatives that are buried in the Lincolnville Cemetery, but could not find hers.
If there is anyone that knows where these graves are located in the cemeteries I would appreciated hearing form you.  Thanks in advance.

I am seeking information concerning the wife and children of my great-uncle, John A. BRINDLEY, born in Ohio in 1857 and died in Colorado about 1920.  His parents, Hugh BRINDLEY and Mary (OSBURN) BRINDLEY, lived near Walton in the 1870's and moved into Peabody in the 1880's.  His wife (name unknown) was born in Ohio in 1860.  Their children were Bessie, born 1884;  Gertrude, born 1886 and died about 1904; and "baby" born 1892.  I would like to find the name of his wife and information on the children.  I think John may have deserted his family in the 1890's and moved to Colorado.  Thank you very much for any ideas or assistance you can provide.

I am researching David H. PUGH and wife Celia E. YOUNG who were born in Grayson County, Virginia and settled in Marion County, Kansas and appeared on the 1900 census with their family: Rosey, Bell, Caudy, Effey, Edney, and baby Carl or Karl as he appeared on the 1910 census.  In 1920, David appears to be a widower living with his daughter Lora L. PUGH age 16 and his elder sister Malina LIVESAY. What happened to David and his wife Celia and his sister Malinda and David and Celia's children?  Thanks for your help!
