Topic: Moctezuma Family

Searching for info on the Edwin Moctezuma family.

Edward Moved to Topeka, in aprox 1899 where his mother Maria Moctezuma ran a chile parlor.

Edward attended Haskell Institute for Indian boys in Lawrence.

In 1902 the family moved to Atchison and opened a chile parlor at 3rd and Commercial street while his older brother Augustine Moctezuma remained in Topeka. In 1910 the chile parlor was move to 408 Commercial. We have been told that the Chile Parlor was very popular with the students from St. Benedit's College and that they refered to it as Moc's.

From the 1920 census we have found that Edward and his wife Josefina (JOSEPHINE) lived in Atchison and had five daughters of which we have names on 4: Lucy, Lupe, Jo and Mary. SSI records show that Josephine died on 15 Aug 1966. She was living at 66002 Atchison, Atchison, KS at the time of her death. Ed was forced to sell the chile parlor in 1950 due to a heart attack.

We are trying to find out more information on the family and if any of the family still live in Kansas.

Topic: Shockey family ,1870 to 1887 in Stockton Ks.
From: Carole Shockey
Date: Monday, June 21, 1999 08:30 PM

I believe my great grandfather, Jobe A. Shockey and his family came to Stockton, Kansas in the 1870's or 1880's. He died in 1887 and the family returned to Missouri. If Jobe did die in Kansas I want information regarding him while in that area. I was told by my aunt that Jobe migrated to Kansas leading a wagon train along with several hundred head of cattle. He meant to stay there with his family but after he died or was killed there the family left their new home. Can anyone give me any information. My aunt also told me he was buried in Kansas but when his sons were grown they went back to Kansas and brought the body back to Missouri for re burial. The last years of Jobe's life are a mystery. Thank you. Carole Shockey

Topic: Curwick/Belgarde
From: Danielle Bowen danigirl979@hotmail.com
Date: Thursday, June 17, 1999 04:24 PM

I am searching for any information on the name Curwick or Belgarde. I am told that my gg-grandfather Hippolite Curwick was living somewhere in Kansas and was married to a woman by the last name of Terhune. She died and he eventually married the Indian girl that was hired to help him take care of his children. Her name was Susan Belgarde. They had at least one child that I know of named Joseph Napoleon Curwick that was born in Kansas in 1876. I have found other Curwicks living in Kansas in the Pottawatomie area, but I haven't been able to figure out how they fit in yet. I thought that maybe the other people could be other children of Hippolite, but I can't be sure. Any help would be truly appreciated.

Topic: RACY
From: InguzCL@cs.com
Date: Sunday, June 13, 1999 06:43 AM

I am desperately seeking any information for my genealogical research on Bertha (Racy) Horn. I know only her birth year (1894) and her marriage to George Horn on April 16, 1912 in Cherokee County, Kansas. I believe that George Horn grew up in Atchison County, Kansas. Questions I would love to have answered include: What was Bertha Racy's mother's maiden name? What was her father's given name? Did Bertha Racy have any siblings. If so, who were/are they? Where was Bertha Racy born? I would be so grateful for any information. I fear that my family tree may remain forever lopsided unless I can gain appropriate information on the Racy family. If you can help, please use the following e-mail address: InguzCL@cs.com
