WEATHERBY posted by Cweatherby on Wednesday, September 29, 2004

John R. Weatherby, b. abt. Sept. 28, 1907, may have spent time in Leavenworth prison between 1925 and 1940. Do not know whether Federal or state prison. According to 80 year old relative, he and some friends stole the safe out of the courthouse in Wichita (?) county, where he was born. Understand Kansas Historical Society would have records of state prisoners in Leavenworth. There may also be a marriage or divorce to "Helen" - last name unknown. All information or tips on how to track down records, if any, gratefully received.

HELMICK, MERSMAN, MERSMANN posted by Carol Hartegan on Thursday, January 6, 2005

I am looking for death and burial information for Christopher Theodore Mersman (Mersmann). He was married to Mary Elizabeth Helmick in 1859 at St Joseph's Catholic Church in Leavenworth and killed by Quantrill's raiders in Leavenworth Feb 25, 1865.

Is there a Catholic cemetery associated with St Joseph's?

I did find this entry in Leav county cemetery list:
Meserman Easton Easton which maybe indicates Easton cemetery.

HUESGEN, SAUER posted by Mike Wren on Monday, January 17, 2005

I am looking for more information on Capt. John Peter Huesgen of Leavenworth. John Peter's obituary is titled with the "Capt", but the only reference I have found is the Company Commander of the "German Rifles" was J. B. Huesgen. I can not find any other information on the "German Rifles".

He was a Grocer in Leavenworth but in one of the census records his occupation is "Land Agent". His daughter Mary Helen Huesgen married Otto Sauer in Leavenworth on Aug. 17, 1876 and moved to Colorado. His other daughters married and moved away. His only Son operated a Drugstore in their old Grocery, but I think he moved to New York. Any other information about the Huesgen's would be appreciated.

MCCAULLY posted by Patricia Blackstock on Sunday, February 13, 2005

I am wondering where I would find the marriage registration for Thomas McCaully born August 26, 1848 in Toronto, Ontario and his wife Margaret Ann of Terra Haute, Indiana. I believe that they were married in Leavenworth around 1882. Their first son John was born in Leavenworth in 1883. Any help would be appreciated as I am researching from Toronto, Ontario. Thomas was my great-great-uncle.

BLAKELY, BROWN, GRAHAM, MONTGOMERY, NORTH posted by Kenneth Thiede on Sunday, February 20, 2005

I am seeking information on Thomas M Blakely, married June 12, 1856 in Leavenworth,Ks to Mary Brown. He was a Wagonmaster with the Quartermaster Corps, hauling supplies to the Forts along the Oregon Trail. His wife Mary was living with the George W Graham family in Stranger Township of Leanvenworth County in the 1860 Kansas census. Also Tom's son Henry Blakely age 3 born 1856 according to the census record. Any and all information would be welcomed. What I really would consider a find is a copy of their marriage license and where Tom was in the 1860 Census.
