Query:  Looking for information on the PECKENPAUGH family who resided in Norton Co., in about 1887. Willis Wayne (my great, great grandfather) b. 21 May 1851 in Cameron, Warren Co., IL d. 15? June 1919, Spokane, WA, m. 10
Sept 1871 in Wahoo, Saunders Co., NE to Jennie C. SHORT b. 27 May 1850
in New Kingston, Cumberland Co., PA, d. 11 July 1928 in Spokane, WA.
Willis Wayne had a small wayside railway depot called "Seth" in Norton
Co., KS. on Prairie Dog Creek.  I believe he was the telegrapher there and
possibly the station master.  I believe he bought a 120 acre
relinquishment of land there.  My grandfather, Harvey Willis Peckenpaugh
went to the small village school (don't know which one) nearby with his
brother Crowney Dale Peckenpaugh.

Jennie's parents Jacob H. ("Jake") and Margaret (Burney) Short lived in
Indianola, Red Willow Co., NE as did most of her brothers and sisters.
I do not know how long Willis Wayne and Jennie stayed in Norton Co.  Both died in Spokane, Spokane Co., WA.  My great grandfather's notes say that they developed "dad's 120 acres of virgin buffalo grass into a productive farm." I believe they did some farm business in Stratton. This would have been in about 1891. 

Harvey Willis Peckenpaugh (my great grandfather) m. in about 1986 Emma
Rozella McCorkle (called Zella).  She was born 25 May 1875 in Columbia,
Marion Co., IA and came with her adopted parents, her aunt and uncle
Joseph Lowry and Jane E. (Mathers) McCorkle to live in Benkleman,
Dundy Co., NE.

Any information about these individuals would be greatly appreciated. Will
share whatever I have with whomever wants it.

shows approximately where Seth was located.  
The Almena, KS Centennial, 1893-1993 says, "Seth - The Burlington Railroad was built through this area in 1885. Seth was first platted in 1887 with streets and avenues, all named. There was a railway depot and stockyards on the
siding. A few area residents went together to establish businesses. The
land was owned by David F. McFarland and Ida H. McFarland."

You could try writing to the county clerk and see if you could get a
photocopy of the plat map for Seth.

Frank Lockard's "History of the Early Settlement of Norton County" has no
reference to Peckenpaugh family.

Query:  Montreville Alexander Morrison, b. VA, and wife Amanda found in 1880, Norton Co. KS, Leota Twn. with three children Homer, Maggie and
Charlie. What became of them?

Reply: 13 Aug 1999 by Ardie Grimes 
from "The History of the Early Settlement of Norton County" by F. M.
Lockard published 1894

Montroville Alexander Morrison was born in Virginia, November 11, 1842,
and came to Keokuck county, Iowa, when a young man, and was married
there to Amanda Cain. He moved to Richardson county, Nebraska, in
1868, and from there to Norton county, and settled at Leota in the fall of
1873. He took an active part in the county seat fight as a Leota man.
When Frank Williams resigned the office of county Treasurer in 1874 Mr.
Morrison was appointed to fill the vacancy; in 1875 he was elected to
the same office, defeating C. Decker by a vote of ninety-five to
eighty-two. In politic he was always a democrat.

Five children were born to them, their eldest, Rila Delbert was born
September 10, 1860, he was married to Mary F. Ellis March 18, 1878;
they have had four children. Mrs. Morrison died June 7, 1893. Mr.
Morrison has since married Ada M. Anderson and is in the mercantile
business at Oronoque at this time.

Leota J. Morrison, eldest daughter of Alexander Morrison was born in
1862. She was married to John T. Earle June 23, 1877; two children were
born to them, both girls. After leaving here Earle took to drink, which
caused domestic trouble, and finally in 1890 they separated. They both
live in Atchison at this time. 

When the competing town was started it was called Weston, but when
they asked to have a postoffice established the department declined to
call it Weston; so late in the fall of 1874 a meeting was called to decide
on a name. Morrison said he would give an oyster supper to the town
company for the privilege of naming the future metropolis; this was
promply assented to, so he named it Leota after his daughter. 

Mr. Morrison's second son, Homer Edward, learned the harness maker's
trade after leaving here. He died at Evansville, Indiana, in December
1892. His second daughter, Maggie Eveline, is married and is now living in
the state of Washington. Charley Montroville, his youngest son, lives at
home with his parents.

During Mr. Morrison's residence here he kept the hotel in Leota; this hotel
was kept in the building that is now occupied by Newt Cope as a
residence. He left here in 1884 and lived for some years in Atchison, but
is now living at St.Joseph, Missouri, and is working at his trade, painting.

Query: I am looking for any information about the BISBEE families who migrated from Devizes, Ontario, Canada to Devizes, Rock Branch township, Norton county, Kansas between 1874 and 1876.  Apparently, the Bisbees
founded each town.  I don't know the significance of the name Devizes
except that there is a town in England with the same name. 

Reuben, Jr. and Mary BISBEE moved with their son, Reuben III and his
wife Hannah. Reuben, Jr. died January 28, 1887 in Devizes, (Norton Co.)
Kansas.  Mary died April 02, 1892 in Devizes, (Norton Co.) Kansas.

Reuben III and Hannah moved with two children, James and Charles, and
had their third child, Mary Jane BISBEE, on December 04, 1876 in
Devizes, KS.  Six more children were born to them in Kansas between
1878 and 1891.

Reuben III died November 06, 1924 in Ford (Ford Co.) Kansas.  Hannah
died April 15, 1925 also in Ford (Ford Co.) Kansas.

Their children were:
--> James Thomas BISBEE 
(Born April 18, 1869 in Ontario, Canada)
--> Charles Wesley BISBEE 
(Born August 06, 1871 in Ontario, Canada)
--> Mary Jane BISBEE 
(Born December 04, 1876 in Devizes, Kansas)
--> Eunice Amelia BISBEE 
(Born February 06, 1878 in Devizes, Kansas)
--> Millie BISBEE 
(Born January 1880 in Devizes, Kansas)
--> George Lawson BISBEE 
(Born October 1881 in Devizes, Kansas)
--> Reuben Ebenezer BISBEE 
(Born: November 22, 1886 in Devizes, Kansas)
--> Milton Haney BISBEE 
(Born: November 22, 1886 in Devizes, Kansas)
--> Hannah Elizabeth BISBEE 
(Born: April 1891 in Devizes, Kansas)

My great-great-grandfather, John Henry BISBEE, was another son of
Reuben, Jr. and Mary BISBEE.  He and his wife, Jennette (McFarland),
apparently didn't move with his father and brother because he had two
children in Michigan in 1875 and 1878. Somewhere between 1878 and 1880, they moved to Devizes, Norton County, Kansas because my
great-grandmother, Margaret (Martha) Ann BISBEE was born on February
11, 1880 and I found them all in the 1880 U.S. census of Rock Branch
township. John died 1883 in Devizes, Kansas. I don't know when or where
Jennette BISBEE died.

Their children were:
--> James B. BISBEE 
(Born 1868 in London twp., Ontario, Canada)
--> Margery B. BISBEE 
(Born 1870 in London twp., Ontario, Canada)
--> Daniel BISBEE
(Born 1873 in London twp. Ontario, Canada)
--> Mary BISBEE
(Born 1873 in London twp. Ontario, Canada)
--> Ella BISBEE 
(Born Abt. 1875 in Michigan)
--> Archie BISBEE 
(Born Abt. 1878 in Michigan)
--> Margaret (Martha) Ann BISBEE 
(Born February 11, 1880 in Devizes, Kansas)
