Bios in Kansas Archives
with Sumner County Connection

Many of the people who lived in Sumner County were residents only for a short time, moving on to Oklahoma and other parts of Kansas. For that reason, I have linked all the biographies in the Kansas Archives that mention Sumner County here for your convenience.

The following list is NOT alphabetical and does contain multiple surnames. Even if you don't find YOUR surname here, you might want to check some of these bios out. They will give you a glimpse into the lives of Kansans who lived or worked in Sumner County.

If you know of any bios in the Kansas Archives that relate to Sumner County in some way and are not listed here, let me know at
