Hi... I doubt that you know me, but my family tree goes back to what I call the early days of Jewel County. By that I mean 1900s up to present day. My mother, Beulah Evelyn STEPHENS was born in Agra and her parents, Mr. and Mrs. John A. STEPHENS lived for years south and east of Mankato. My mother married Eugene A. PHINNEY at Mankato in 1927, (he was the assistant Jewel County Engineer), and after his death in 1954, she remarried Harold AHRENS and lived north and west of Mankato until he died in about 1976 or so.
I have been searching for some trace of exactly where John Stephens lived but have never had much luck. Don't know even how to begin, I guess, as I doubt that he owned the property.
Also have been searching for a lady in Mankato who knows where some of our early day relatives are buried. I believe her last name was Alexander, and her husband took care of some of those old day cemeteries. Before she retired, she worked for the Kansas Dept. of Transportation. Do you possibly know her and how I could get hold of her? I certainly would appreciate any info you could give me.

Hi! I have a connection to Jewell Co., Ks. between 1876 and 1880 - my Grt-Grt Grandmother, Catherine SPICER & children came from Fulton Co., Ill to Jewell County. They endured several years of lost crops and I guess lost most all they had there; left there to go back to either Illinois or Ohio, but got to White Cloud, Kansas and the water was too high to cross. They ended up staying there until Spring and by then decided to just stay. I have a bit of into on her and her family - obits etc. V
