I'm looking for information about my gg-grandparents Clement B. DUSTIN (b. abt. 1830 Vermont, d. 16 Feb 1907 Leavenworth, KS), Marietta (surname unknown, b. 6 Mar 1838 Toledo, OH), and their children:
Edward C. (b. 1856 Janesville, Wisconsin), Elmer E. (b. abt. 1861 Kansas),
Mettie I. (b. abt. 1868 Kansas), Emily Clementine (b. 18 Jul 1872 Kansas), and Edna N. (b. abt. 1877 Kansas).
The family moved to Leavenworth from Wisconsin in 1858. I believe that Marietta must have died sometime before 1900, because only Clement appears in the 1900 census.
I found an entry for Edward in Cutler's History of the State of Kansas. However, except for my g-grandmother Emily, I know very little about the rest of the family.
Emily married my g-grandfather Fred Monroe RICHARDSON, who worked at the Leavenworth Bag Manufacturing Company. My grandfather Fred Monroe RICHARDSON, Jr. was born in Leavenworth 3 Nov 1893. The family moved to Chicago sometime between 1900 and 1910.

Hello there. My name is Cathy Harless Merritt and I am a descendant of Sylvanus Harless. He died January 3rd, 1886 and it is reported that he was buried at Kickapoo, Leavenworth County, Kansas. From the Coroner report, he was released into the hands of family & friends on the 4th of January, 1886. From a Military Form of depositions, it is stated that he was buried in Kickapoo, Leavenworth County, Kansas. He did not have a stone. I have been searching for his gravesite for quite awhile now and I can not find it. I was told that he was living in Kickapoo, Kansas at the time of his death even though he died in Kansas City, Kansas visiting relatives at the time.
I do know that his Mother-in-law, a Martha Ward was living in Kickapoo/Leavenworth area at the time. Is it possible that she owned property and Sylvanus Harless was buried on her property? Wouldn't there have been a record kept?
Can you please help me to find my Great Grandfather's burial site. He was a Civil war veteran and I'd like to honour him with providing a tombstone.
I sure would appreciate any help that you'd be willing to offer. I look forward to hearing back from you....thank you so much.

Hi, looking for information on these families, particularly on Melchior and Anna Maria SCHWEIZER, both born Wurttemberg, Germany around 1810, in Leavenworth, KS in the mid-1850's.
I'd also love to get in touch with Donna Merrill, who posted on this forum a few years back, though that email for her no longer works.
