My husband's great grandfather was Samuel (C?)Broughton -orginally from Indiana;he served in the 21st Illinois infantry; moved to Kansas where he married Martha Ellen Childress in Independence,Ks.

Topic: WALL
From: Diane dianeg@softcom.net
Date: Thursday, June 10, 1999 10:14 AM

I need help on locating information on Benjamin, Bennie, Elwood, and Louetta WALL.

My great great grandparents:

Benjamin "WALLS" WALL
Born: Abt. 1824 in NC

I have never found any info on him anywhere other than his sons death certificate!


Martha Jane TURNER
Born: 07 Jun 1824 in NC
Died: 28 Aug. 1916 Cherryvale, Montgomery, KS
Burial: Pleasantdale Cemetery, Montgomery, KS
Married: Bef. 1854 in NC
Census: 1885 in Cherryvale, Montgomery, KS (the only record I have found her on!)

Where was she btw 1885 and 1916?


Bennie WALL (could be Benjamin)
Born: Bef. 1854
Died: ??
Burial:Pleasantdale Cemetery, Montgomery, KS (No headstone)

Does anyone have access to the cemetery index? I would appreciate birth and death dates.

Robert Franklin WALL
Born: 05 Apr 1854 in Richmond, Forsyth, NC
Died: 28 Oct 1923 in Chanute, Montgomery, KS
Burial: 31 Cot 1923 in Pleasantdale Cemetery, Montgomery, KS
Census 1: 1900 City of Cherryvale,Montgomery, KS pg. 63b
Census 2: 1910 in Cherryvale, Montgomery, Kansas, Pg. 896.

Elwood WALL
Born: Abt. 1862 in Indiana
Census: 1885 in Cherryvale, Montgomery, KS
Witness on brother Robert's marriage license in 1886

He seems to have disappeared after 1886.

Louetta WALL
Born: Abt. 1876 in Indiana
Census: 1885 in Cherryvale, Montgomery, KS (only record of her existence)

Since the 1885 census doesn't list relationships, I'm not sure if this is Benjamin and Martha's daughter or perhaps granddaughter.

I've searched the North Carolina, Indiana and Kansas census records to no avail.

Looking for George Washington Church or any Church surnames. George Washington Church was born October 5, (think 1859) He was a peddler and traveled from town to town selling his wares. We think he was adopted by the CHURCH family. He left a settlement in Kansas or Oklahoma & we think died when the wagon overturned during a flash flood. The wagon was later found overturned near a creek bed. It was believed that the wagon was washed down the creek. His body was never found & he was never heard from again. Believe GEORGE W. CHURCH came from PA. He was married to a CARRIE S. MILLER, a Pennsylvania Dutch. They had one known child, our grandfather, GEORGE AUGUSTUS CHURCH, b.Feb. 19, 1879 in Hewins, Ks. Married MYRTIE MAE SHOOK, May 21, 1901 at Corbin City, Kansas. Would like any information on this family...George A. and Myrtie Church are buried at a cemetery in Cherryvale, Kansas where they lived.
Thank you for your help!

Topic: Bush, Joab and Sarah
From: Mike Logan
Date: Sunday, April 04, 1999 10:00 PM

Seeking information on Joab(b. March, 1835) and Sarah Bush(b. June 1840). After leaving Indiana, they had a farm near the Cherryvale area. Their eldest daughter was born in Indiana in May 1880, so I expect they arrived sometime after that. They were counted in the 1900 census. My uncle recalls visiting the old farm house in ruins sometime in the 1930's but can't recall much detail.

Joab and Sarah cared for William Joab Logan until the death of William's father (Their son-in-law) around 1911.

Would like to know more about these people and what became of them.

Thanks for your help.
