I am trying to find a Philip Carto. I think his father was Samuel Carto. Philip was born in 1868. I believe he may have married to Anna Jane Coates, daughter of Alexander Logan Coates. Any help appreciated.

I'm looking for more information on Arby TUTTLE, his wife Louisa, and his niece Matilda, who appear on page 5 of the 1880 census of Prairie Township. Arby was 47 at the time and a farmer. Matilda was 17, and the daughter of his brother Harlow, who was possibly deceased. Arby and Harlow were brothers of my great great grandmother Elmina Tuttle, who stayed back in Lewis County, New York. Any information greatly appreciated.

On the 1880 Jewell County KS census, Buffalo township, ED
130, page 463B, I found an R. Tuttle, age 55, farmer born
in NY and parents born in NY. He has a wife, Elizabeth and
3 children, Herbert, Henry and Edward (children all born in
WI). R. Tuttle could possibly have a connection with your
family judging by closeness of age and place of birth.

I'm searching for the death date and burial location of JAMES A. BAILEY. He and his wife, Caroline, were located in Buffalo township on the 1880 census. They had 5 children at that time, the oldest was a daughter, Anna, is listed as teaching school. The family had moved from Green County WI about 1865 to Missouri, then to Buffalo township in Jewell County, KS after 1872.
James was a civil war veteran and Caroline applied for widow benefits in KS after he died.

Hi Ardie,
Thank you for the information about James Bailey and son Frederick. I found Caroline - she's buried in Hampton, Franklin County, Iowa. Apparently she went to Iowa after the death of her son because there
were Bailey family members living there.

Found Kindlespergers in Jewel County. Now looking for Charles Ianson who married Ruth Anise (poss. Allice) Kindlesperger, sometime between 1880-1883, as my grandfather John Ianson was born in Nov. 1883 in Jewel County. Any help would be great.
