Looking for more information on Julius C. and Priscilla ROBISON family. Julius' father, William R. ROBISON died in Jewell Co, KS 22 Aug 1891 according to probate records filed in Golden, Jefferson Co., CO. 1900 Census lists Julius/Priscilla and 3 children: Anna S., Laura L. and Julius C. living in Vicksburg. 1910 and 1920 Census lists Julius (age 88)/Priscilla(age 77) living in Grant. I assume both died in Jewell county. What area newspapers would have carried an obituary in 1891 for William R. Robison?

Kathi: Saw your posting re: Robison
Family and I am sorry that I do not have
any info for you about them, but I will
keep this info filed in MY ROBISON family
folder and get back to you if I find any
info on them. My link to the ROBISON
line is my GGGG Grandmother Mary ROBISON,
b. abt 1746 in Virginia, married 1766 in
Montgomery Co.,VA to my GGGG Grandfather
William BRYAN, b. 01 May 1744, Rockbridge
Co., VA, the eldest son of John Andrew
BRYAN, b. abt 1712 in Ballyroney, Ireland
and Mary MORRISON who were married on
18 Mar 1742 in Roanoke, VA. I know they
had at least one child, my GGG Grandpa
James Robison BRYAN, b. 23 Nov 1772 (we
believe in VA) and d. 14 Feb 1821 in
Jackson Co., Indiana. James Robison BRYAN m. on the 28/29 Mar 1797 in Bourbon
Co., KY to Mary ANDERSON and they had at
least one child, my GG Grandpa William
BRYAN, b. 17 Oct 1801 in White Co., TN,
who m. 04 Mar 1830 in Lawrence Co., IN to
Matilda PHILLIPS. Their son, James R.
BRYAN, b. 16 Dec 1833 in Jackson Co., IN
is my G Grandpa; his son Elam Sabinas
BRYAN, b. 17 Jun 1870 in IL is my Grandpa
and his son Mason Henry BRYAN, b. 11 Jul
1899 in Boone Co., MO is my father. Do
any of these names sound familiar to you?
I appreciate any help you can give me and
I will keep in touch with you and share
any info I have with you. My Grandpa Elam lived in OK and KS and some of his
family lived in various KS counties so I
thought perhaps with your ROBISON family
in KS that there could be a link. Please
keep in touch. Virginia (BRYAN) Wilson

Topic: Nickerson, Early settler of Jewell County, KS

Here is a notation I have.
D. Nickerson was one of the first settlers of Jewell County, KS who came in April 1871. Would this be something that could be located in a different section of the County History?
Also, is Nickerson, Reno, KS a possible place to try and find the family I want to locate?

I am searching for the David Nickerson families that lived in Jewell County, KS I believe they were in Grant twp in the mid-1800's. The wife was Charlotte M. (White) Nickerson born in 1831 Maine. I don't know if any of them are buried in the county.

Topic: Birth information for Abraham Holmes Martin
From: Juvanne Martin

My husband's grandfather was Abraham Holmes Martin, born 28 March 1874 in Jewell County, Kansas. His parents were Alexander Constantine and Martha Jane Holmes Martin. I am trying to find some proof that they lived in the county during this time period. In 1870, they were in Madison County, Iowa and in 1880, they were in Newaygo County, Michigan. Perhaps, a tax record or a mention of the name in the local newspaper would get the proof I need.
