GILBERT posted by Suzanne Guinn on Friday, January 2, 1998

Ethal Mae GILBERT (grandmother) was born in Sharon, Barber, Kansas in 1901. Her father, Norman Elbert GILBERT, deserted her mother when Ethel was about 3 or 4 years old. He reportedly went to Oregon. Nothing is known about him, other than he was born in Iowa in 1862. He had a family before and after Ethel. Ethel's parents, Norman and Lulu Maud BLACKMORE later divorced. Are there any newspapers in the area that cover this time frame? Would there be any divorce records in Barber for the early 1900's?

ELDRED posted by John Eldred on Friday, March 6, 1998

Does anyone have any idea in what town or city Eldred Cemetery is? I see it listed on a Barber county page on the land of a WJ Ring but no city or town listed. If you could tell me whose buried there, that would be even more helpful; or, how I could get a hold of WJ Ring.

POOL, TAYLOR posted by Susan Evans on Sunday, September 6, 1998

After many years,I think I have an educated hunch as to where my Great Grand Parents were married. John Franklin Taylor was born in Ill. in 1861.(as per 1900 cenus) He married Emma Garver Pool (of Greensburg,Westmoreland, PA.) Oct. 1887. In 1888, Their daughter , Olive, was born in Astibula, Ohio were Emma's father owned a lumber business. 1995 my Grandfather was born in Greensburg, Pa. His name was Stanley Taylor. I resently found a brief family history, that said Zachariah Taylor Pool (Emma's Father) moved his family from Astibula, Ohio to Hazelton, Barber Co. Kanas in the year 1886 where they remained until 1888 and returned to Astibula, Ohio. He owned land in Hazelton. I know that the Pool's were Lutherans and Emma would have married in her church. I am looking for any information on the Pool's brief stay in Hazelton and the Marriage of Emma Pool and John Franklin Taylor. I know nothing about the Taylor family and have been searching for many years. My mother knows that Emma died in1913 in Warren , Ohio and Stanely was left in the care of Emma's sisters, Ida and Cora. John remarried and moved to Texas and died about 1938-39. This is my last "wall" to climb over for DAR.

POOL, TAYLOR posted by Susan Evans on Saturday, September 19, 1998

Looking for information on the Zachariah Pool family, who lived in Barber Co, Ks. (1886-1888) They owned property and sold it in 1888. Zachariah Pool was a very sucessful business from Greensburg, Pa. He aslo owned a plaining mill in Astibula, Ohio. His daughter (Emma Garver Pool) married John Franklin Taylor 1887. I beleive this may have taken place in Kansas. Can any one help ME? The Pool family was Lutheran. I really need help. This has been a 7 year search.
