Could someone tell me the length of time that a person or family had to stay on their homestead land to "prove up" on it? What genealogical information might I get from the application papers? How do I go about obtaining a copy of those? Thanks!

Topic: Barnard/Guyer photo
From: Tom Thompson bamyman@actworld.net
Date: Wednesday, January 24, 2001 11:18 AM

I have a photo of a rock house with an elderly gentleman and two ladies in the yard. The writing on the back mentions "Aunt Libbie and Uncle Luman Barnards home in the country in Kansas City, Kansas. Representative U.S. Guyer lives there now, but Uncle Luman built the house and had 40 acres of ground. U.S. Guyer bought it after Uncle Luman died." This photo looks to be around the turn of the century. I would like to get this photo into the family that it belongs to.

I am searching for information on an ancestor named Ruth Irene Tedrow. She and her family lived in Kansas in the late 1800's/early 1900's and they owned a fair amount of land. Ruth's parents were James Edward Tedrow and Alice Burwell. Ruth's children were born up until the mid 1920's, so I'm guessing she was born between 1890 and 1900. If anyone has any information, please e-mail me at maxsmama98@earthlink.net. Thanks!
