Topic: Alfred Carpenter and Maria Schoonover Carpenter
From: Rachelle Cromer cromer@derbyworks.net

I'm hoping to find the descendants of Maria Schoonover Carpenter and Alfred Carpenter. They were married Oct. 28, 1871 in Benton Co., IA. In the list of heirs in Maria's father's will, it states that she lives in Kerwin, KS. I haven't been able to find a Kerwin, KS. Any help with this family would be greatly appreciated.

There is also a Mount Hope Cemetery in Independence, Montgomery Co., KS. It is very large and has some VERY OLD sections. They have much or most of the graves in a computer data base and were very helpful in locating several of my ancestors.

Topic: HULL &/or CLOUGH
From: Joseph Hull andesite@aol.com
Date: Sunday, December 03, 2000 11:54 AM

Looking for possibly two families in Kansas between 1872 and 1880. (1) Oscar F. HULL and Lydia "Liddie" CASSIDY Hull with their two children William and Alvin. (2) Daniel H. CLOUGH and Jane ALEXANDER Hull Clough with their daughter Eva. These two families migrated from homesteads in Clay County, southeast South Dakota in the early 1870's through Kansas to Washington and Oregon before the 1880 census. I have no information on their stay in Kansas; just a long shot! Would be happy to correspond with anyone working on HULLs or CLOUGHs in KS. Thanks! andesite@aol.com
