I am looking for information on the James Moore Family that resided in Morris County as listed on the 1880 Federal Census;

  • James born about 1824 in North Carolina
  • Nancy born about 1824 in North Carolina
  • Mellie born about 1860 in Indiana
  • Dellia born about 1862 in Indiana
  • Elias Born about 1865 in Indiana, believe Elias may have gone by the name Denton later in life.

On the 1870 Federal Census the family, plus Isabella and James, Jr. resided in Lyon County, Kansas.

  • James 48 born in North Carolina

  • Isabella 17 born in Indiana
  • James 15 born in Indiana

Would appreciate any information. Believe Elias (Denton) married Anna Mae RUBY in Lyon County in 1896 they have for children; Raymond, Marie, Francis, and Pearl.

Anna May's second marriage was to Wilhilen HOLLTORF between 1925-1929

Anna May HOLLTORF died in California in 1951. I do not know what happened to Denton or any of their four children.

My Great-Aunt Fannie SCHULENBERG-GORDON-QUIET lived in Council Grove when I was a child living in Emporia.  After the GORDON died, she married a QUIET.  This would have been prior to 1950.  I recall that her husband, John QUIET, a retired railroader and his friends build a small train in his barn. I visited them in the 50's and the train was a big hit.

I found John MOSER was a harness maker in Morris County.  He is my Great-Grandfather and I possess an old saddle of his with his name stamped on it.  He was born in 1859, and came to Morris county in 1879.  I wondered if you had any pictures or info on his shop, the town back then, or any additional info I might discover.

1880 Census shows the family of Edward A. and Nancy G. LAMB living in Morris County Kansas with some of their children listed.  One is "Gussie" age 18.  I am searching for a marriage of one Augusta LAMB to Zachary Taylor MARTIN sometime between 1880 and 1885.  Suspect this marriage took place in Morris County, Kansas but I have not found any information on it.  Any help would be appreciated.
