BEAVER, KNOX Wendy Waibel Fri Dec 27 20:02:24 1996
My Great-grandmother was Mary Gertrude KNOX. She was born on 11 MAY 1877 in Burrock, Jewel County, Kansas. Her parents were James Polk KNOX, born 19 OCT 1844, and Clara BEAVER, born 22 OCT 1853. I don't know where James and Clara were born. They had six other children: Eva, Herbert, Nellie, Ruby, Mertie and James Jr. The family moved to California where the children married and had families. I am looking for information on James Polk KNOX, Sr. and Clara Beaver. I am not sure where to write for a birth certificate on Mary Gertrude. The certificate might have the information I need. Can anyone help? Thank you.

McKELLAR Jane Tavasci Tue Oct 1 20:37:38 1996
This is a query concerning Allan township in Jewell Co. In "The Biographical History of Cloud County, Kansas" c.1903, there is a section on my gggrandfather Duncan McKELLAR. (Page 750-752) On page 751 it states that he helped establish the first post office in Allan township. Evidently he circulated a petition and his uncle, Archibald Paul, was appointed postmaster. Here's the question, it says it fell to Mr. McKELLAR to supply a name and he suggest "West Hope" and it was adopted. Was that a town in Jewell Co. separate from Allan? I don't imagine they named the Post Office that. Thanks for your help.
