HALL posted by Margaret Jenstad on Wednesday, January 15, 2003

I recently found that my gr-grandfather's half-brothers lived in LeRoy, Coffey Co KS (1880 census). They are Hiram and Harmon Hall, twins born December 31, 1834, and the sons of David and Elizabeth (Potts) Hall of Knox Co., IL. Hiram, I believe, had the following children: Sarah E., Alice, Willie, Arthur, Albert, Letie, Frank, and Fred (twins). Does anyone know anything of any of these descendants? I would be interested in making contact and sharing data. Please email me if you know anything about this family. jenstad@pro-ns.net

NEWMAN, McCOLLUM posted by Rowena Marten on Saturday, March 8, 2003

I am wondering if anyone can help me in determining whom the M. MCCOLLUM girl was, that was living with my NEWMAN family in the 1865 Coffey County Kansas Census?? She was 11 years old, born about 1854 in Tennessee. I have also located probably her sister M. J. MCCOLLUM living with a WEST family I believe it was. The WEST woman was a school teacher if I remember, and I just was wondering if there were other children/siblings to these girls, if they were orphaned, or if they possibly could be related to my NEWMAN family?? Please if anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it!!! Thank you, and hope to hear from you. Rowena Marten R55FM@wmconnect.com
