OWENS, PRITCHARD, SCHNEIDER posted by Guy Cockerum on Sunday, September 7, 2003

My gggrandfather William Owens b.1818 in Wales d. 1869 Kansas m 1843 Wales to Fannie (Pritchard) 1. Owens 2 Schneider b. 1830 Wales d. 1916 St Helena California. They came to America in 1844 and resided in Kansas from 1854 until his death in 1869. They had 10 children I know of 2 that were born in Kansas, 1 in Milton Kansas but have not found any records yet. William and 2 of his sons served in the Civil War, I believe out of the Leavenworth area, the reason is in my gggrandmothers obit. it states Fannie Owens nursed Smallpox at Fort Leavenworth for the government. After William died in 1869 Fannie remarried 1 year later to Henry Schneider also a Civil War Veteran, they continued to live in Kansas until 1875 when they moved to California.My ggrandmother was born in Kansas in 1859, and my grandmother was born in 1875 in Topeka Kansas.
Having a lot of difficulty finding any help on line with Leavenworth records for census or Civil War rosters. Can you help??

JONES posted by Alton R. Jenkins on Monday, September 15, 2003

Looking for information on H.C. Jones who is listed in the 1880 Census in Leavenworth, KS as a cook in a restaurant operated by Mary Gordon. Jones was born in 1842 in Ohio. He may have served in Co. H of the 5th Ohio Cavalry. I have access to a Winchester "Yellow Boy" rifle manufactured in 1870 that has apparent Indian markings and am trying to determine the history of the gun. H.C. Jones' name is on the gun.

Reuben Relius Hale(he went by both Reuben and Relius) was from Christian CO Missouri and was wounded in the World War I. He spent years at Wadsworth Veterans Home after WWI. According to our newspaper, he was still there in 1945. I do not know his exact dates of living there. He may or may not be buried there. Any information that you have on when he was there or when he died or his records there would be appreciated. I really do not know much about his military or health records and would like to find out about them.

DYKSTRA, SCHREGARDUS posted by John DeVries on Tuesday, November 11, 2003

I am looking for details regarding one of my ancestors, born as Saakje Schregardus in the Netherlands. She married Gerrit Jans Dijkstra and immigrated to Erie county, NY in 1849. According to the information I have she died in Leavenworth on april 7, 1872. I have no idea how or when she got from Erie county to Kansas; I do know that she was widowed in 1849 or 1850. Several of her children remained in Lancaster, Erie county, but it is possible that at least one of them moved on to kansas. Any information would be appreciated. thanks,
John de Vries.

I am looking for information on Jacob and Margaret Ehrsam that lived in Leavenworth, Kansas in 1881. They immigrated to the US from Switzerland. They had five children (all born in Switzerland) but later immigrated to Leavenworth, Kansas as well.
