My great great Uncle was a James HUMPHREY who was born near Mansfield, Notts, England in 1833. He emigrated to USA in 1854 and eventually settled in Kansas. He married a Mary Vance (born Springfield, Ohio) in the autumn of 1861. He became a newspaper editor, then a lawyer and was eventually appointed a judge and died in Topeka in 1907 . So far as I know he had three sons Herbert J., Spencer (killed in a railway accident 22 Sept 1815) and James V. and two daughters Eleanor and Adelia. Adelia became the vice principal of a College somewhere in USA.

This information has come via family records and is all I know. I am currently building up records of my family history and If anyone one can throw further light on the life of James HUMPHREY and his descendents I would greatly appreciate it.

Maybe you have an answer already but, the only King Ranch I've heard of is in Texas. It was big, the only thing bigger was the rest of the State of Texas and the ego's of most Texan's.

Currently researching the Mitchner/Hagar line. It was a family of brothers/sisters who originated from Goldsboro, NC. They went out to Kansas to work in the late 1800's. Some of them were never heard from again. If anyone knows of anyone with this last name, please let me know.

Searching for information on Rachel Amelia GOOSEMAN, (b) May 1, 1873 Olathe, Kansas and (d) January 30, 1960 Joplin, Missouri. She was the daughter of Isreal GOOSEMAN and Samantha Elizabeth SHIRLEY. Rachel married James P WILLIAMS 1st, Horace Ullisus WILLIAMS 2nd and Ben COOPER last. We think there may have been other marriages in between. She moved from this area with Horace to Nebraska and Oregon and then back to Missouri after Horace died. Her parents were both from Washington County Ohio.

Am looking for information on the family Bettes. Brothers Thomas (wife Mary C. Ball) and Hadden (Mary Ellen McGrew) moved here. Thomas is listed in the Pensioners and in Cutler's history. Hadden and his family are not. Hadden's oldest 2 were born in Mound City I believe. They would be Robert and Thomas in 1877 and 1879. Hadden had 9 children. I believe the first 3 were definitely born in Linn County. Am stuck at a dead end, any information would be appreciated. Thank you!
