WILLIAMSON posted by Daniel Williamson on Friday, July 7, 2000

I am researching the Moses Compton Williamson Family. I would appreciate contacts from anyone with data on my g-g-grandfather. This man lived in numerous states during his life (New Jersey?, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri, Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Texas, Arkansas, and Kansas) making it difficult to track his roots.
I'm also interested in finding Moses Compton Williamson's father, David.
Thanks in advance.

WANAMAKER, BEITER/BITUER posted by Linda Johnson Kelly on Friday, July 28, 2000

My g-grandmother's obituary says that she was "converted at about 13 years of age, and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church in Burlington, KS". As she was born in 1858, this would place the family in Burlington about 1870 or 1871, perhaps as early as 1869.

Can you help me locate someone with records of that church, as there must have been some listing. Mary Jane Wanamaker, born in Crawfordsville, Indiana, August 29, 1858. Her parents were Nicholas Wanamaker and Francis Beiter (also spelled Bituer, Bitter, or Bieter). Any direction at all would be much appreciated.

SAUNDERS posted by Jon Saunders on Thursday, October 12, 2000

I have located Albin Saunders in the 1860 Avon, Coffey Co., Kansas census and know that he passed away in 1864 in Avon, Coffey Co. I can't locate Avon on any map. Was it absorbed by another community? How would I go about determining what cemetery Albin is buried in? There appear to be 35 cemeteries in Coffey Co. If it helps any, Albin may have been associated with the Seventh-day Baptist Church.

AVON, KS posted by David R. Frederick on Saturday, October 28, 2000

Avon was a farming community about eight miles down the Neosho River from Burlington, Coffey County, Kansas. According to my great-great grandmother, who lived there; most of the settlers arrived with the original "Hampden Colony" in 1856. It was never really a town, but was definitely a "community". The 1860 and 1865 census reports showed "Avon township". I think the Avon community became a part of the town of Leroy.

DAVIDSON, RHOADES posted by Anna Wilhelm on Monday, October 30, 2000

I am trying to find some records of my paternal grandmother. Her name was (birth) Jessie Elizabeth Davidson. Married name, Rhoades. She was born in Burlington, KS on October 14, 1879. She died on October 18, 1937. I was only one month old so I did not know her. She lived in Kansas City, MO when she died. I hope to find a record of her parents' names and then I can find out what Davidson plaid (or tartan) is the correct one. I don't know any other way to trace my Scottish ancestry.

Father's name Harold Guy Rhoades. D.O.B. January 24, 1906. Died November 12, 1988.

Thank you.

BROTHERTON, PATTON posted by Allan Griffith on Friday, November 24, 2000

I'm searching for descendants and county look-ups for Hiram BROTHERTON, b. about 1839 in Vigo Co., INdiana. He married Sarah PATTON 1865 in Indiana and he is the son of Abel BROTHERTON and Sarah WEPTON (or Webton/Welpbton). I believe this is the same Hiram that was on the 1870 census index in Coffey Co., Burlington Twp - although I don't have access to the Kansas Census. I know that this man was at the town of Winfield in Cowley Co., KS in 1903 according to his brother John's obituary. I have much to share on Hiram's siblings and parents, but would like to add more with other descendants help. Also, I'd appreciate any help with Census look-ups from 1870, 1880, 1900 & 1910 - and cemetery lookups if he can be found in Cowley Co. perhaps.
