August Kraus, 1860....trying to find him in a census report. He was in St. Louis December 1860 when he married Carolina Doerges, but is not in MO census.

WILLIAMS posted by Nancy Nielsen on Saturday, February 6, 1999

I was told that I might locate military records for the Galvanized Yankees who were part of the US Volunteer Infantry in Leavenworth. I wonder if you might give me a clue...a direction to go by which I might locate the records of my great grandfather, Thomas Edward Williams. He was a captured rebel at Stones River and held at Gratiot Street Prison in St. Louis prior to joining Union forces and heading west and ultimately to Colorado. I will appreciate any input you may offer. Thank you, Nancy Nielsen

Looking for Nellie SMITH who lived at 1435 Chestnet in Leavenworth for many years. Her brother, Ira Wetz, lived with her at one time. The listing is in the city directory for 1963. She does not appear in the 1964 book. Does anyone know the area of 1435 Chestnut (house might have been at corner of 15th Street and Chestnut)? Could this have been a rooming house?

WEBER posted by Donna Brown Berner on Monday, February 15, 1999

Seeking information on the family of Christian WEBER who lived in the 3rd Ward of Leavenworth City on 21 July 1860. Living with him was his wife Emma, mother Catherine Weber, and four children: Carrie, Emma, Charles, and Edward. They later moved to the Marshall County area of Kansas, but I believe some of his family remained in Leavenworth for many years after he left. On the census he is listed as a butcher. Any help would be appreciated. Donna Brown Berner

HOWE, MCCARTHY posted by Ellen Anderton on Saturday, March 20, 1999

My Great-Grandmother was named Ellen McCARTHY. She was in Leavenworth in approximately 1860 after coming to the USA with a brother (first name unknown). I would like to find the descendants of the brother of Ellen McCARTHY. Ellen married one James HOWE (may have been spelled Hough) in the 1859-1860 time frame and moved to Dickinson county (it is possible they married there). The brother had granddaughters who were named Nellie and Kathryn McCARTHY and they worked in Kansas City in the 1840s and 50s. The original McCARTHYS were Irish and from County Limerick. I know the brother's family was still in Leavenworth as late as the 1920s. Anybody know them?
