I am trying to find information on Milton Elmore Jackson b.1839 in IL d. 1882 in MO or any of his family members listed below in Kansas between 1860 and 1880. Milton was married to Lucinda Brown b. 1845 in MO. Their children were:

Milton served in the 6th Kansas Cav Regiment from 1863 to 1865. His record lists him being from Little Stranger.

FIELDS, SILVERS, WIDENER posted by Carol Spiker on Monday, February 4, 2008

Could anyone let me know if they can find information on Samantha Widener, born about 1879. I believe she died in Leavenworth County, Kansas, possible near Linwood, KS about 1900. Her husband was Charlie Fields and I believe he may be buried in Leavenworth County also.

Also, Looking to verify that a Lillie Widener was born to George and Matilda F. Widener in 1881 or 1883. Lillie married Frank Silvers, I believe he was born to Rachel (Fields) and Hugh Silvers in 1862.

Thank you.
