Their sons (including Charles, Phillip C., Samuel Augustus, William James, and others) resided in Barnes, Fredonia, Independence, Lay, Neodesha, and Sycamore. Philip (Phillip?) C. was a lawyer in Fredonia in 1905. He entered politics and died while campaigning for political office. His cousin, also named Philip C. was a lawyer in Barnes at the same time. A daughter, Mrs. George (Young ) Hill, was Iiving in Independence in 1938. William James Young was my grandfather. I don't know which one of the original Youngs was my great-grandfather, but I think it may have been Adam. I'd very much appreciate any information you could provide, and would be glad to reciprocate.Best wishes and kind regards, Jack Wood 2/98



ZWISSLER, Conrad and Sophia MESH were my g-gparents. Conrad was born in Germany in 1837 and Sophia was born in 1850 in Ohio. Sophia MESH's family moved to Kansas City, Kansas, in 1865. Conrad and Sophia Zwissler had 8 children: Henry, birthdate unknown; Mary Louise (my gma) 1874; Anna, 1877; Agnes, 1879; Clara, 1882; Catherine, 1884; Rose, 1886; Joseph Leo, 1889. They were in Missouri in 1884, and had moved to Kansas by 1886. They lived in Cherryvale on Depot Street and managed the Great Western Hotel. I think it's now called the Axtell Hotel. see also McGEE   Louise Mangan 6/98
