I am looking for any information on a Luke C. Miley who served as a Representative to Topeka for the 103rd District in 1902-1905 and then as Sheridan County Commissioner in 1926-1930. He was my husband's great grandfather. We are trying to do a genealogy on his family and Luke is the farthest back we have any concrete information on. We do know he married Sarah Jane Shepard in Concordia on February 28, 1882. He was born in Terre Haute, Indiana on April 7, 1863. That is all the farther we can get. We do know his father's name was William and his mother was Mary Elizabeth Cassidy, but we have no further information on them. Any information or direction you may direct me would be appreciated as far as Sheridan County is concerned. I have contacted the other areas, but have not heard from them as of yet. Thank you for your time.

I have been visiting with my father-in-law Charles LaVerne Harrison. He tells me when he was a baby in the fall of 1905, his family went to Sheridan county to plant 40 acres of wheat. They traveled from Mitchell county to the area in a covered wagon, pulling a plow, harrow and a planter. AND then returned to the Glen Elder area to live on a farm.
Since he was a baby, this information has been handed down to him. He does not know who owned the land. It may have been his father's land Willis and Georgiaeva (Casey) Harrison. Or it could have been in another name. Perhaps Walter and Melissa (Luckey) Harrison. HOW do I go about checking more on this? Could the county office have information? I will thank you for any information you may be able to give me.
