I am looking for any information on my great great-grandfather. He was born in Bedford County Pa in 1802, married Susannah Wertz 30 April 1882, was in Jefferson County Iowa in the 1856 census and is buried in Mankato Kansas. He died in 1882. A son is also buried there. His name was Justice Peace. Any help would be so appreciated.

Found William A Bowles buried in Montana cemetery, Jewell County. If anyone has a book to look up Bowles in this or other cemeteries, I would appreciate any information. William was 14 years old when he died, so there must have been other family members with him.
Some Bowles girls married Love, Hord and Free, who may also have gone to Kansas.
Thank you,

Topic: Leslie A.McBratney
From: Dave Coles

To whom it may Concern:
I'm currently work for Cole & Coles - McBratney family.
At that time Leslie A. McBratney was lived in Mankato during 1920's. Our Great Aunt Merle(Coles)McBratney was passed away in 1925 and buried at Centralia,Kansas with his family.
There was no record of Leslie to buried with Merle.
So far I'm wondering does he still live in this town for many years or not.
He might be remarry to another wife. I am not sure if he was buried in Mankato.
Also Leslie and Merle has one adopted Daughter - don't know her name.
I will be appreciate if anyone can help me or any information about Leslie McBratney.
Thank you!
Have a good day!
