Topic: Lucia 'Luchia' Stoner b. 1853 & Henry Hervey
From: Robert Hervey
Date: Tuesday, December 12, 2000 05:32 AM

I am looking for information on Lucia Stoner b.1853 d.26 Feb 1890 in Concordia, she was the first wife of Henry Harrison Hervey b. 12 May 1850 d.18 Oct 1935. Lucia & Henry moved to Cloud County in 1871 from LaGrange County, Indiana. I have lots of info on Henry (and would love to share that info with any Hervey relative,) but nothing on Lucia or "Luchia" Stoner. It is thought that Lucia Stoner may have had relatives move with her to the Cloud, Kansas area.

Our family history have both Henry Hervey & Lucia Stoner are buried in Concordia but I have no idea where. I would love to hear from anyone that can help me know more about Lucia or Henry.

Here is a clipping from a Concordia Newspaper about Henry Hervey. If you can identify the paper I would appreciate it.

(From unknown Concordia Kansas Newspaper July 1928) ____

Looking up old friends and talking old times, Henry H. Hervey whose homestead place in Summit Township used to be called "The Light-house," was in Concordia today after an absence of 23 years. "I feel a good deal like a Rip Van Winkle." he said. "Concordia has changed so much that I'd scarcely know it, and most of the men I knew in the pioneering days seem to be out in the grave yard now." But he doesn't look in the least like a Rip Van Winkle. He seems well and strong and in good spirits. He says that he has been traveling all over the country visiting among his 13 children.


Coming from Indiana to Concordia, Hervey took up at residence in Summit Township just on top of the divide between Concordia and Beloit. In the early days travel through that region, especially in the winter was dangerous business and the nights when the wind was high and there was driving snow and sleet Hervey used to light a large oil lamp, put it on a table in the center of his little 16 by 20 shack, put up the shade and let the light shine out of the windows that were built in the sides of the shack. That was the way his place got the name of "The Light house."

"Many a night," he said, "my wife and I took people in when they had lost their way on the road. There was I. J. Crans, He and a friend of his were on their way from Concordia to Cawker City one night in December. The got lost and were nearly frozen to death, but they found their way to our shack and spent the night with us. Some of the old timers will remember Crans. He was a lawyer here in the early day and a good lawyer he was too. He came from Philadelphia."

[Among early settlers] Hervey named Malcom McKimon, Charlie Sweet, Homer Kennet, and Judge Sturges, "And then there was Jim Hagaman who used to run the Blade" he said. "When he wrote he always used to out right through to the red, especially if he was writing about politics."

Hervey knew the White boys who lived out on White Creek. "Their mother had been carried away and their father killed by the Indians just a few years before he came west. Years later when Mrs. White was brought back she married a man by the name of Brooks and they were neighbors of mine in town.


Hervey told of the Railroad coming through in '77, "Up until that time we used to haul our stuff to Greenleaf for shipment;" he said, "but for a while after we had the road we weren't much better off. The cars were so dilapidated that they would not even hold our grain, a commission was appointed to inspect the road and then stock began to go down. Some of it was privately owned. I sold mine for ten cents on the dollar."

"Those were hard days. My land wasn't much good and seven times I was hit with terrible hail storms. Then there was the year that there was cholera among the hogs. I lost three hundred. My creditors just about had me by the foot in a down hill pull that time."

Among Hervey's old neighbors and fellow homesteaders in Summit Township was Dr. David E. Moore, father of Mrs. S. C. Piginton of Concordia. "I remember when we ran for the legislature and ousted him. That was in '84. We were important in politics then," said Hervey, "that bunch of us over in Summit township."

Hervey has been living in Missouri and in Iowa in recent years. He came to Concordia from Manhattan where he been visiting relatives. His wife, who died before he left Concordia is buried here and he said he wanted to be in Concordia for Decoration Day. Hervey is 78 years old at the time of the Civil War was a member of the Indiana Militia.

I have noticed the family of Christian C. Stoner who were close neighbors of my McManimie and Henderson ancestors in Nelson township of Cloud County, from at least 1874-1895. Christian Stoner is the witness to the last will of Nelson McManimie in 1882, and makes an interesting deposition a year later for its probate. Possible that the Stoners intermarried with the Wilsons and/or Boyles from IN in the 1824-1850 time period. I am tracking a group of Wilsons, Boyles, McManimies, Pottengers, Dawsons, Secrists, and Stoners who intermarried in KY or PA, migrating to IN in the 1820s, on to IL in the 1850s, and on to Cloud County, KS in the early 1870s.

Listed in the "Cloud County Cemeteries", vol. 3, p 120, pub. by Cloud Co. Genealogical Society (1994?) your ancestors mentioned here are:
Pleasant Hill Cemetery, block 4, 086.02 and 086.03:
HERVEY, Henry died 22 Oct 1935, no stone.
HERVEY, Lucia H. died 26 Feb 1890, aged 36 years, 8 months, 3 days.

The "Early Deaths of Cloud County, Kansas Before 1903," researched by Marilyn Johnson, pub. Cloud County Genealogical Society, 1998, 2nd ed., p 35 lists:
Hervey, Lucia (Mrs. Henry H.) -- 2/26/90 --
36y 8m 3d. Quick Consumption.
Pleasant Hill Cem. *Troup Y Dawson*
Hervey, CS (daughter of H. H.) Hervey? -- 02-?-? -- 1 m 7 d (cause not given)

I'm looking for information on my Grandmother Delia Frances Ransom Wagner's family, the Ransoms. My Grandmother was born in Concordia on Feb, 8, 1884. She was married to Elmer Theodore Wagner/Waggoner on Feb, 8th, 1900. They left Kansas shortly after they were married, but I believe many members of the family stayed in Kansas.

Delia's paternal grandparents were Cornelius P.V. Ransom and Azubah Smith Ransom. They were married in Madison County, Illinois in March of 1843.

I will appreciate any help.

Date: Thursday, December 30, 1999 08:01 PM

Emogene PECK married Ivan CHRISTIAN. I find them in the 1920 census, living in Shirley Township, Cloud County, KS.

Ivan CHRISTIAN is 37 years old;
Emogene (PECK) CHRISTIAN is 38 years old;
Burdette H. CHRISTIAN (son) is 15 years old;
Elvira GARWOOD (aunt) is 70 years old.

I have found a Valentine CHRISTIAN living in Cloud County 1870 (married 1st wife in 1871); (married 2nd wife in 1874)... Are Valentine and 2nd wife, Jeannete (PARKER) CHRISTIAN the parents of Ivan CHRISTIAN?

Looking for any and all descendants of this family. I am related to Emogene PECK through her father and his first marriage. Emogene was born in Michigan. Her father was born in New York. Have a lot of family history to share.

If someone would be kind enough to look in 1900 census to see if Ivan is living with Valentine as his son, I would be ever grateful.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
