I am looking for any more informatin on the following individuals.

Sylvanus L. HAWLEY was born 25 Jul 1842 in Phillips, Barbour Co., WV. He fought in the Civil War serving in the Indiana Volunteer Infantry.

Sylvanus married Martha E. ARMSTRONG on 29 Sep 1867 in Springville, Lawrence Co., IN. The following children were born to Martha and Sylvanus:

Stella D.....b...02 Apr 1868
Frank M......b......Sep 1869
Kate A.......b...06 Dec 1873
Arthur E.....b...01 Jan 1878

Martha E. (ARMSTRONG) HAWLEY died in 1880 in Shelby, Nebraska. Sylvanus then married Rebecca C. BROWN in 1881. They had a child, Ethel, b. 21 Nov 1885.

Sylvanus died in Moran, Allen Co., KS on 5 Dec 1920. According to his pension application he lived for a time in Smith Co., KS which is where I located his son.

In 1920 his son, Frank, was living in Smith Co., KS with his wife Catherine (probably KELLING). In the 1920 census they had one daughter, Martha, who born about 1904.

I would like to find out more information on Frank and Catherine and find out who Martha married. I also don't know when or where Ethel HAWLEY married.

Nathaniel supposedly was born in OH and homesteaded on Crystal Plains. Although I grew up in Smith Center, I have benn gone a long time and can't remember to much. My sister Dorothy Chase has helped a lot, but I still don't know much.
